Hi, in this article, we are going to know how to set up and install a 7.1 home theater at home. 7.1 home theater is also a very popular home theater among other types of home theater. It has seven satellite speakers and one subwoofer. The seven satellite speakers are - two front speakers, one center speaker, two surround speakers, and two surround back speakers.

The placement of speakers as per the standard made by the sound experts is very difficult because there is a lot of measurement required. We can not do like that at our home. So, I have given you a basic idea for the placement of the speaker.

Keep the center speaker at the center, which means just below the TV or above the TV. It will be better if you place the speaker at a height of 1.5 meters to 2 meters from the ground. And also note that all the speakers should be at the same height from the ground. It will be better, if you keep the subwoofer on the ground at the corner of a room.

Keep the two front speakers on the both sides of the TV. Also, note that there is no identification or marked on the satellite speakers that which speaker where to place so you can place any speaker in anywhere following this procedure. Now the question is how to measure or distance for the placement of the speaker. You don't need to worry. You will see all the satellite speakers comes with a wire and have a length. The manufacturer of the home theater gave the wire length by measurement. So place the speakers as per the length of the speaker wire, just try to maintain the height.
