A Movie Theater Experience in Your Home - Home Theater & Media Rooms

August 1, 2017

For over 25 years Ambience Home Technology has been designing and installing home theater

and media rooms for clients in Grand Haven, Holland, Saugatuck, Grand Rapids, and 

surrounding areas.  Following is a brief overview of home theater rooms and media rooms as well as the process surrounding the design and installation.

 

Dedicated Home Theater Rooms vs. Media Rooms

The variety of home theater products on the market today make it possible to bring a home theater experience into virtually any room in your home.  However, most homeowners opt between a dedicated home theater room or a multi-purpose family media room.  Following are some core differences between the two.

 

Dedicated Home Theater Room

  • Purpose built room for home theater

  • Designed from the ground up, usually when the home is being designed by the architect or builder, for optimal audio, video, and comfort

  • Contains acoustical wall and ceiling treatments

  • Large widescreen display preferably with stationary screen wall or motorized screen  & projector.

  • High performance audio & video components

  • Components are housed in professional equipment rack and includes cooling

Media Room

  • Shared as part of a family or entertainment room

  • Smaller speaker size and more often in wall speakers or in ceiling speakers

  • Large screen HDTV TV display or projector & screen

  • Audio Video Receiver is used instead of separate components.

  • Equipment housed in custom built cabinetry provided by your builder or in free standing furniture

Whether you choose a home theater, a media room or both -  we help design every aspect of the space to create the best result.  Every detail of your project is carefully researched and considered and meticulous care is taken in installation and programming. We recommend the best equipment for your particular needs and budget. We also work closely with your builder, designer, and other trades to ensure no detail is overlooked.

 

Dedicated home theater rooms are designed to be acoustically separate from the other rooms of your house to limit disturbance for other household members, as well as creating the perfect acoustic balance in the theater.  We specialize in all audio and video components of the home theater including high quality speakers, advanced surround sound and video processors, projectors and screens, acoustical wall treatments, lighting and shade control, professional wiring, equipment storage, and customized remote or touch screen control. We also offer to clients home theater chairs, drapery and tiered seating.

 

 

Ambience designs your home theater or media room to be practical and easy to use. We make sure to design the theater specific to the needs of each client, and to the home we are installing. This means we take into consideration equipment compatibility, speaker impedance, power handling, optimal speaker and seating location, and HDMI compatibility. One of the very last thing we will do in your home theater is a room calibration, making sure all your settings are perfect and ready to use for you and your family.

 

We are often asked what brands we carry.  We offer a variety of products so that we can always offer the right solution to our clients.  Following are the some of the core brands and product categories we draw from.
