Home theater systems are exploding in popularity. Basically, one of their biggest advantages is that they often make full, dynamic soundtrack to be reproduced in the house environment. However, one demerit about them is the amount of wiring required to hook up the surround speakers. But luckily, technology has stepped in and provided a solution i.e. wireless home theater system. Let us now have a look at some of the effective steps required to install a wireless home theater system.
Things You Will Require In order to Make the Entire Process Successful
- Home theater system
- Home theater receiver
- Wireless transmitter and receiver
- Antenna cable with RP-SMA male and female connectors (RP-SMA extension)
Step#1: Install your wireless transmitter that is near the receiver of the home theater. You will require to wire the transmitter both the right and the left channel audio outputs of the home theater. Also, the unit will require access to its own spot or power outlet on a surge protected power cord. Place the antenna in a position in which it is in line-of-sight, and use a RP-SMA extension cable to connect the antenna to the receiver.
Step#2: Remove the regular wiring form the different speakers that are around your house. Some wireless systems need that you wire your rear speakers to your wireless receiver. However, in these systems, you are not going totally wireless, but you simply do use shorter wires since not all the speakers will require to be wired to the audio output of your home theater.
Step#3: Wire the speakers to the receiver. There are some wireless setups with a small receiver for each of the speaker which either directly attaches to it.
Step#4: Power up the wireless unit and then try playing a DVD in order to check the connections.
Step#5: Wire the other media players such as the stereo, to your extra inputs of your wireless transmitter.
Last but not the least; you should always remember to change your input selection by hand each time you feel like you want to switch from one input to the other.
