How to Install a Home Theater : Equipment Needed for Home Theater System Setup


Hello everyone! My name is Tony Ramirez and
I am here to teach you the basics of setting up your own theater system, so enjoy. Our
first step is to get all of the equipment and tools that we will need. In this example,
we will be setting up a 5.1 surround sounds system. Just in case you ever wondered, the
1 in 5.1 is the subwoofer and the 5 or the 5 satellite speakers. Here we will have 5
basic book style speakers. One speaker will be used for the center speaker, another for
the left channel, right channel, rear left and rear right. As for the 1, we are using
a powered or active 8 inch Sub wolfer. In addition to the speakers, we will need an
audio receiver capable of decoding Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound. This unit here decodes
both. Next we will acquire a DVD player with either optical or digital coax cable outputs.
These outputs carry the Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound signal to your receiver. Finally,
make sure you have speaker wire long enough to place the speakers where you would like
them and also a Digital Coax Cable or optical cable.

  2. the only thing that uses optical coax is my dvd player and i can use either an s-video cable or a yellow rca cable to get the video i got the optical coax from the dvd player to my sony home theater system and i use audio rcas from my cable box to the tv in on the back then i got rcas coming from the back of my tv that are in the out audio behinde my tv to the in audio of my theater system so i have to put my theater system on video 1 if i want to hear the sound coming out the tv
