Apart from systems and their technical aspects few things about the setup of the theater room needs to be considered.
1. Your budget, and requirement for the home theater. Whether you would like to use it to watch movies, or play games.
2. The next step is to know where will you install your home theater. The size of the room matters the most. For a small room we need to plan for smaller furniture and setting.
3. Illumination and lights in the room to create the atmosphere of a theater. Light dimmers work best in this situation.

5. Last but not the least, do not forget to install comfortable sittings. Home theater chairs and sofas will add that relaxed environment.
By taking care of these factors to create your own home theater, you will rock with visual and audio effects of home theater.
