Ever thought about converting your double garage into a feature-filled home theatre space?

Well, that is exactly what the brief from this client was. Their double garage was converted into a very generous 6m x 4.5m cinema room. This made use of our team’s expertise to carry out the building/structural works, which included framing off the room and installing doors to create a separate storage area for their children’s stuff. We also took care of carpentry/cabinetry, painting, carpet installation – as well as the supply and installation of all the selected AV and tech gear.

Project highlights included:

Before we look at the gear we installed, let’s first understand the different channel/speaker combinations you can have in a surround sound system.

Understanding surround sound channels and speaker setups

If you are wondering what the numbers you see when buying a surround system are, here is an explainer.

The first thing to know is that surround sound systems are usually described using three digits – like 5.1.2, where:

  • “5” = the number of channels/speakers you will have at ear level
  • “1” = the subwoofer speaker, for those thumping, low bass frequencies
  • “2″ = the number of overhead channels/speakers, as in an Atmos system, typically in the ceiling or wall

If there are only two digits – like 5.1 – your surround sound system does not have any dedicated height channels. Some common setups you will see include:

  • 5.1 = 5 speakers at ear level, with a single dedicated subwoofer
  • 5.1.2 = as above but with two additional height speakers, often above you in the ceiling/wall
  • 7.1.2 = with 7 speakers at ear level, a subwoofer and two dedicated height speakers above
  • 7.2.4 = as above, but with 2 subwoofers, and 4 height speakers added in the ceiling/wall
