        Want to Enhance your Flat Panel TV With Quality Sound?

        Posted: December 4th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

        So you’ve already shelled out big bucks for that flat panel TV, but what about sound? Stereo sound enhances television and movies by immersing you in the on-screen action, surrounding you in atmospheric music and sound effects. Get the most out of your plasma or LCD flat screen purchase by investing in a quality sound system.

        Basic Speaker Setup

        Not every home theater needs an expensive, state-of-the-art surround sound system. Depending on your room size and budget, you may find that a simple two-speaker setup is all you need to enhance your TV-watching experience with stereophonic sound. A two-speaker setup is best positioned in front of the listener, preferably with one speaker placed on each side of the TV. Different audio channels produce different types of sound, which vary by manufacturer. Testing a pair of speaker’s sound quality in store before buying is recommended.

        Home Theater Surround Sound Setup

        For a truly immersive TV-watching experience, go the extra mile and invest in a multiple speaker setup to create a home theater with surround sound. A basic home theater setup (4.0) requires four speakers to create surround sound, but adding a subwoofer will provide those rich, deep, low bass sounds that round out the overall effect.

        Below is a quick breakdown of surround sound speaker setups:

        - 4.0 Setup: 2 Front Channels (Left & Right) + 2 Rear Channels (Left & Right)

        - 4.1 Setup: 2 Front Channels (Left & Right) + 2 Rear Channels (Left & Right) + Subwoofer

        - 5.1 Setup: 1 Center Channel + 2 Front Channels (Left & Right) + 2 Rear Channels (Left & Right) + Subwoofer

        - 6.1 Setup: 1 Center Channel + 2 Front Channels (Left & Right) + 2 Rear Channels (Left & Right) + Subwoofer + 1 Rear Surround

        - 7.1 Setup: 1 Center Channel + 2 Front Channels (Left & Right) + 2 Rear Channels (Left & Right) + Subwoofer + 2 Rear Surrounds

        Speaker Layout and Positioning

        Not many people know that different speaker layouts are recommended for viewing versus listening. For general TV and movie viewing, place the front channel speakers at the edges of your flat panel TV, pointing toward the seating or viewing area. The center channel speaker should be positioned either above or below the flat panel TV. Rear channel speakers should be positioned either high up on left and ride side walls, or set just behind the viewing area in a dipole setup. For music listening, all speakers should be placed in a manner that surrounds the listening area in a circle with all components equidistant from the center.

        If your TV viewing or music listening area seems too small to fill with so many speakers, consider purchasing specialty speaker stands and mounts to save on space. Some types of speaker mounts enable you to install speakers into your walls and ceilings, freeing up much-needed floor space and surface area. Smaller speakers can also be placed on tabletops and bookshelves. Many pieces of home entertainment furniture have special built-in shelves or cabinets for holding speakers. Large speakers can be mounted or, depending on personal taste, left freestanding on the floor.

        Speakers can usually be purchased in complete sets. Many stores sell surround sound systems that consist of a group of speakers, a subwoofer, plus an audio receiver component. It is almost always more cost-effective to purchase speakers in sets like these, and you’ll find they’re easier to set up as well. Now that you’re familiar with the basics of stereo speaker sound, you’re on your way to creating a great sound setup to compliment your new flat panel TV!

        How Does My First Chapter Sound?

        Posted: October 28th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , | 5 Comments »

        He looked at the time on his digital watch, counting by seconds. It had just turned 2:42am. A tall dark figure exhausts all his energy lifting himself in a seated position on his bed, in his bland, tidy, dark room.
        His name is Roland Medlocke. 34 years old. Unmarried. And about to be the sole survivor of Earth.
        “A fear unlike any other”
        To stare at the stars, is to stare in the beyond, to a place of empty validity. To look beyond life on Earth.
        Chapter I
        Roland walks out to his balcony, out of his rented hotel room, on the 23rd floor. He see’s a star, gleeming in the night sky, seemingly noticable beyond all others. He attends his thoughts for a moment, racing through his mind trying to decide to whether we are alone in the Universe. He comes to the uncautioned decision to leave that question alone until morning. He lazily, and almost blindedly from the light of the moon changing the dialation of his pupils, heads back into his darkened room, and walks towards his bed, pulls the covers over, out of his way, lays down, and replace’s the covers to the correct position. He grabs the remote, turns the TV on, and sets the remote back down on his night stand.
        Roland himself, akward, is naturally a different person, mentally, from all others. He doesn’t see things the same as everyone else, and that maybe is the key reason of his future, lonesome existence as prey. He is never one to take irrelevance seriously.
        But what may have once have been irrelavent in his mind, may be changed, for the rest of his survival.
        Roland fastly falls into the peaceful structure of sleep once more, and for the rest of the last night, the rest of humanity sleeps.
        He wakes up to the brightening ray of light just passing the crack in the shut curtains, as the sun just arose from its slumber. Oddly enough, to himself, he notices the piercing question that bewildered his mind just the night before, bringing it to his attention as his main thought, as he opens his eyes to the next day. He doesn’t keep the returning question as top priority for the morning for long.
        He then gathers the energy to get out of bed, and go into the tiny hotel bathroom. He feels for the light switch in the dark, gloomy bathroom, and flips it up, but to his surprise, no light cuts on. He mumbles under his stale breath “Just great…”, and walks back in the bedroom, finally noticing the TV was not on when he woke up. He grabs his cell phone off the night stand, and opens it up, to provide needed light, to do his morning hygenic’s.
        He looks at the front display of his phone, and notices his phone has no connection, taking the freedom of calling someone away, if he needed it. With a dreary attitude, he walks back to the bathroom, sets the phone on the bathroom counter, turns the swivel that makes the phones display screen open and close, to an angle, to where the light from the front display shines on his face. He turns the nob on the sink, that provides hot water, on, and hears a paniced rumble of noises coming from the sink, it only lasts for 2 seconds or so, as he watches attentively. Finally, a liquid emerges from the facett, only relieving his depression of how his morning started for the few seconds he thinks that it is water that is coming from the facett, but to his demise, it is muddy, reddish-brown water, as if it was water from a muddy puddle. He doesn’t notice that it is not water. He puts his hands together, as if to grasp a collection of water, and splash’s it on his face, the muddy water covers his hands, as he places them under the facett, and he notices his hands have the feel of a left over residue residing on his hands from running the muddy water on them. He quickly grabs the towel that was in the cabinet under the sink and dries his hands off. He grabs the phone, aiming it, as a make-shift flashlight, and see’s a reddish-brown impression on the towel that he dried his hands off on, he then turns the phone facing the running facett, and see’s muddy water, plummitting down the drain in the sink. With a hightened sense of paranoia, he rushes out the hotel room, runs down the hallway, in darkness. Figuring the elevators aren’t working due to the power-outage. He heads for the stairs. Making his way to the exit door to the stairs, he opens the door, with quite a bit of paniced force, and rushes down the stairs.
        He stumbles, and trips down the stairs, in a hurry for an explaination, as relief to his paranoia.
        That soon is exactly what he doesn’t get.
        Excuse grammatical errors, I will fix them later. No rude comments please. Opinions appreciated.
