The Center Speaker

The center speaker is a crucial element of your home theater’s audio system. It is responsible for producing the sound for most of the dialogue. Even though you could use it to listen to music, the center speaker is more suited for watching movies in your home theater

As you can probably guess, the center speaker is located at a central position in the room, allowing you to enjoy a clear string of dialogue. Typically, these are wider than other speaker components and are placed either on top or below the visual display. The center speaker is generally equipped with tweeters and woofers to expand the sound field. 

The Front Speakers

The front speakers are placed to the right and left of the TV or screen. They give the sound effects and music the impressive “power” your movie needs. These speakers match the frequency of the center speakers, so that the on-screen dialogue can move to the left or right as the actors move on the screen. 

Out of all the speakers, the front speakers play the most important role. It is essential that these speakers are of high quality as they will lay the foundation of your home theater. 

Side, Rear, and Ceiling Speakers

The other speakers in a surround-sound setup have similar functions as the front speakers, i.e., to produce music, sound effects, and dialogue. However, they help to create the immersive environment you want while watching movies. 

The sound moves around the room - just like you're in the center of the movie. The sound of a helicopter comes through your ceiling speakers. Velociraptors race by you to the left, making screeching noises as you watch your movie in anticipation. And the soaring musical score surrounds you as you enjoy your favorite movies. When all the speakers function in perfect sync with each other, your home audio creates a 3D sound bubble that will take you on an immersive journey.
