Home Theater

Theaters are designed to isolate you from the outside world and all that stress. Then, for a short while, every so often you can recover as you immerse yourself in a world that you choose.

Our team of installers has been installing Home Theaters for well over twenty years. From a basic Surround Sound System in the Den, to a full on Theater Room in the basement.

Some of our clients have used us to install Home Theaters in their second homes in Vermont, Maine Cape Cod and even Florida. We would be happy to work with you, your architect, designer and builder to make your dream of your own Home Theater come true.

Surround Sound

Every home has at least one room where there is a large flat screen television and a surround sound system.

As flat screen televisions become larger, it’s important to have a sound system that matches the visual excitement with incredible sound that fills the room.

Designing the correct placement (i.e height and viewing distance) and engineering the proper speaker size and placement is critical to enhancing enjoyment of your system. Whether it’s using in-wall/in-ceiling speakers or more powerful tower or cabinet speakers, we’ll design a solution for maximum performance based on your budget.
