Easy Steps to Set Up an Acoustic Environment in your Home Theater

Step I: Placement of Speakers and Seats

  • Your first step when setting up wall soundproofing panels in your home theater is to fix the placement of speakers and seats. These include the center, left, and right speakers, along with the surrounds. You need to ensure that once fixed, the placement of these elements will not change, as doing so will cause the reflection points on the ceiling, floor, and walls to change as well.

Step II: Tagging the Speakers

  • You will need to remove all furniture, furnishings, and decorations from the room. The ceiling, walls, and floors need to be bare to complete the task effectively. Identify each loudspeaker in the room with a different colored post-it note. The difference in color will help you identify and correlate reflection points with the respective speakers. This, in turn, will help you set up the soundproofing wall panels easily.

Step III: Identifying Reflection Points

  • Sit right in the center of the room, which should be the central listening point as well. Ask a friend or family member to hold a mirror flat against one wall surface and slide it slowly across the surface. Do this until the mirror captures the reflection of one of the loudspeakers in the room. Mark that spot on the wall, as that in the speaker in the reflected image, with the same colored post-it note. Do the same for all walls as well as floors and ceilings. You will end up with 30 reflection points in the room for all five speakers. An effective acoustic wall panel will come into place only if you take count of the reflection points on windows and doors as well.

Step IV: Masking the Reflection Points

  • The last step in setting up wall panels for noise reduction in your home theater involves masking all these reflection points to prevent the sound from bouncing off them. You can choose various sound absorbing materials, including thick rugs or carpets for hardwood floors, the fabric wrapped sound absorption panels for lightweight drywall or heavy plaster, and sound absorptive curtains for windows, to take care of these reflections.
