GHA Launches Home Theater Website

150 150 Grand Home Automation - West Michigan's Smart Home Technology Designers

Grand Home Automation is proud to announce the launch of this website dedicated to assiting people with Home theater and media room installation related issues. As the primary contributor to this blog, I hope to cover topics that are of concern to those who are contemplating the building of a new home theater, or wish to improve upon the one they already have. Harmonizing with Grand Home’s general philosophy, a strong emphasis will be placed on planning, design, and engineering. With so many factors to consider, it’s just too risky to buy a bunch of gear, wire it up, and hope everything works out alright.

As a CEDIA certified home theater design specialist, I will be stressing the importance of getting the room design right. Extremely expensive equipment will perform quite poorly in an uncontrolled environment, while even modest electronics can perform wonderfully under the right conditions with proper calibration. Some of the primary considerations for any home theater space that will be discussed here are:

  • Acoustic treatment – sound control inside the room
  • Acoustic isolation – keeping theater sounds in, and house sounds out
  • Audio processing and amplification
  • Video technologies
  • Visual formats and layout
  • Lighting control and effects
  • Climate control and ventillation
  • Interior furnishings and decor
  • Control systems – doesn’t matter how great it performs if you can’t turn it on

I’m looking forward to exploring and sharing my favorite topic – Home Theater!
