How to Fix Home Cinema Sound Problems

Your home cinema will certainly keep you home more often. You can forget about those long ticket lines and sitting in a large crowd. But what if you have problems with your sound? Don’t panic, read on!

There are some common sound quality problems that can be run into when you have a home cinema. In this article I will look at potential sound problems along with some ideas on how to fix them.

If you are experiencing poor sound quality, does this necessarily mean that the merchandise you bought has a defect? No, not all of the time.

The first thing you should do is check the speakers’ wiring to make sure they are properly connected at both ends. If that proves that nothing is wrong, then you may have a problem with the speaker or the amplifier.

The best way to determine the problem is to hook up the speakers to the stereo. If the sound comes out great, then you have a problem with the amplifier. If there is very little improvement, your problem is with the speakers.

Another reason that you may be having a sound problem is that the system is not compatible with the television that you have. This should have been checked out before you bought the system, but since the problem is there, you should have a professional take a look.

It just may be that your speakers are grounded. You cannot miss this problem because there is a hum coming out of your home cinema system.

There are several reasons this can happen: ground loops, bad cables, improper grounding and faulty equipment that is caused by an electronic motor or a dimmer.

Poor wiring or speakers, grounding or even incompatibility are just a few of the problems you may run into which can affect the sound of the home cinema system. The minute you notice any problems, do not panic, but instead try to isolate the problem.
