The Design: 

The first step after you have taken time to experience our home theater showroom in Monmouth County NJ is to discuss a design that is unique to you. HiDEF has professional interior designers or we can work with your interior designer to make sure the room is perfect. You can start deciding on a design through the images below and sharing your preferences, by sharing a photo of an interior design idea, or discussing with us your favorite movie, sports team or other theme based ideas.

Where Does It Go? 

Many families decide to put their dedicated theater in the basement. It is the most optimal for a few reasons. The space needs to be dark, this allows you to only focus on the screen. They should also be enclosed dedicated spaces without other activities happening in the room to distract you. The basement is also a great barrier for noise either coming from the surround sound system into other rooms or other outside ambient noise bleeding into the home theater. ​If you do not have a basement we have families that remodeled an old home office, unused bed room, attic space and even in a barn. We do offer sound deadening and building the theater into a "floating room" or "suspended room" which is optimal for sound proofing. 

What's the best room size?

One of the best room sizes for your home cinema installation is 8ft high X 10ft wide X 12ft deep. A room this size is optimal because of the way sound waves behave. Unfortunately you would probably be limited to four seats. A medium sized theater will usually have 6-10 seats, enough for the family and a few guests. To optimize this size room we could make it a trapagon. A trapagon is designed with a narrower and lower height in the front of the theater that gets wider and higher toward the back of the room. This is popular for audiophile listening rooms as well. You will also need space for your electronics and control system.

Cool Entry :

The door should be located in the back. This reduces any light or distractions coming into the theater while guests are immersed in an experience. It can also be something fun like a hidden bookshelf entry or bank vault door. Outside the theater is where the anticipation starts so you may want to consider the design leading into the theater as well.

What About The Ceiling:?

Many times by default a home cinema ceiling is either neglected or designed with a traditional starry ceiling. HiDEF NJ would rather discuss a more personal presentation that fits your interests or completes the theaters theme.  We absolutely love a starry ceiling but we also like designing complete opulent home theaters that are beyond traditional design.

Tell Me About The Walls:

The walls are an essential part of eliminating distractions and one of the key purposes of a dedicated home theater. The walls will hold the in-wall speakers, sound proofing material as well as reflection and absorption panels to optimize the audio experience.  The wall coverings are your choice  of unlimited design and decor. 

What's Best For The Floor?

The floor is also critical in proper design. A hard surface will reflect more sound and may create an echo while carpet will absorb the sound and allow deeper bass. The sound can be calibrated to make up for different surfaces but there are always basic guidelines we should follow when trying to achieve the best home theater experience. The floor will also need a riser platform for seating behind the front row. From the second row back each row should be raised about 7 3/4" higher than the row in front of it. This obviously allows for everyone to have a clear view of the screen.

Surround Sound Matters: 

HiDEF NJ is your surround sound experts with a trained staff to calibrate your home cinema system. Speaker choice is according to the entire system budget and speaker placement is according to the amount of speakers you choose. We only recommend JBL in wall or B&W floor standing speakers for the best sound experience. You can learn all about surround sound and Dolby Atmos here.

Best Seating: 

Home Theater Seating is essential for comfort but does not have to break the budget. Traditional theater seats are most popular but everyone has an individual taste. Traditional theater seating is a leather recliner with arm rests on both sides. This may be great for public spaces but many of our clients like to use long couches or double love seats for the entire family to hang out on. Bean bags are also popular for additional seating. To get the most seating spaces we usually design a small bar in the back of the room with several bar stools to accommodate surprise guests.

What Kind Of Projector? 

The main ingredient for your New Jersey home cinema is the projector. Projectors have become extremely inexpensive with amazing 4k technology. The projector should be equivalent to the rest of the gear in your home theater. In other words when you decide on a budget the projector and screen should not be astronomical compared to the rest of the theater components. We can help you with these decisions and show you which projectors are the best value in our Monmouth County Nj home theater showroom. 

How Do I Choose A Screen?

After you have decided on the best home cinema projector for your budget we will choose the right projection screen. The size, color, gain and other specifications are included in the science based decision process. Screens can also be fixed or motorized to disappear into the ceiling.

Automated Lighting

Home theater lighting has many facets too. the main lights are usually hi-hats that are used when entering and exiting the theater. Track lighting is used between the seats to see where the aisles and stairs are while sconces and LED lighting can set the mood. 

Movie Time Controls:

Your home cinema is a very complex space as you can see. Having a simple control interface allows one button touch to turn everything on or off and makes it easy for selecting content. This also helps you control the lighting and room temperature during your experience. These features can of course all be tied into your home automation system.

Do I Need A Rack?

The the rack is the heart which has everything electronic that process's and outputs the audio and video correctly to the projector and screen. This can include a receiver or separate components like a pre-amp and amp. Other components like a media server, cable box, gaming system, streaming audio, surge protection and other devices should be considered as well.
