Home Theater New Jersey


What is a Home Theater and why would you want one in your New Jersey home? 

A home theater is a dedicated room that has a large high resolution projection screen coupled with a surround sound system dispersing incredible audio detail. These two elements capture your attention and help you escape into an experience. Can you imagine having a front row ticket to all your favorite concerts and sporting events, when ever you wanted without social distancing concerns?

How about  running for your life completely immersed in a video game? Well, maybe you will leave that for your children or grandchildren. Either way, bigger is better and in today's inescapable world we make it easy to go big and stay home. Another essential element is the chairs, it does not have to be traditional home theater seating but it should be extremely comfortable. After all your looking to disappear for a while in a story, for hours on end. No matter how big the image is and no matter how loud the speaker system is, if your not comfortable it will become a distraction!


Speaking of distractions, the fourth and final element is the room itself. The dedicated space needs to be almost vault like to eliminate distractions. When you go to a movie theater any distractions are annoying, ringing cell phones, crying babies, even 'whisperers can ruin a good scene or even an entire movie. That's exactly what makes going to the movies exciting, losing yourself in a story without any distractions! So the room should be enclosed with no light or noises coming from outside or other areas of the home. Of course there are a lot of details we will get into below but hopefully you understand the basics of what a home theater is and why you would consider one. Looking for something a little more?

"How often do you escape with your family? Everyone loves going to a movie theater, being completely immersed into a story, without distractions. JNS Audio Video brings that magic and keeps you safe at home."          ~RJ.


Here is an outline of the basic components that can be included in your New Jersey home theater installation. There are plenty of options and most clients begin their journey with only the 4 essentials mentioned above. You can then add or upgrade over time. We are always available to help you understand what your individual wants and needs are. 


Design: Everyone is unique and we all have our own idea of comfort and design. Make it relaxing and fun for the whole family.:

Entry Door: Looking to escape for a few hours and reset? Let it begin with a cool entry way or secret door.

Ceiling: Most home theater installation companies bypass a ceiling design or rely on the default starry sky. JNS likes to be a little more creative and complete the room with a ceiling as impressive as the room.

Walls - Acoustic Panels: The walls are wrapped in your design fabric but also play a crucial role in audio dynamics. We can help you understand the different options.

Carpeted Floor: Another element that effects surround sound is the floor. If you had a hard floor in a theater there would be a lot of echoing which would not sound good.

Seating: As we mentioned above your going to need very comfortable seating. We have plenty of options for home theater seating and world even recommend a couch or love seat to cuddle up with loved ones during your escape.

Speaker ReceiverA receiver has two main functions: firstly, it amplifies the sound so it can be fed to your speakers, and secondly, it allows you to select the audio and video you wish to watch.

Speakers: One of the essential elements originally mentioned is the speaker set-up. You can learn more about surround sound systems, JBL Synthesis and Paradigm Home Theater speakers as well.

Projector:  Just like your local movie house your going to need a projector, we would suggest 4k if your serious about a large quality picture.

Projection Screen: For something so simple there is actually a lot of engineering and need-to-know when choosing a proper projection screen for your application. JNS will help you understand, Size, aspect ratio, gain and other deciding factors. You can learn more about Screen Innovations projector screens here.

Lighting: For the best experience you want it as dark as possible but you don't want it dangerously dark when the projector is off. We suggest hi-hats, a few sconces and track lighting on the floor which can all be controlled with a Lutron Smart Lighting system. We will mention motorized shades here as well.

Control: There is a lot of components to this escape center and a simple universal remote is essential. the projector, receiver, video source, lighting and many other elements should be set for fast easy operation. You can learn about Savant Home Automation Here and Elan Control Systems Here.

Rack: All of these components are best mounted and organized neatly in a dedicated rack. This will also keep them cool for the best life expectancy.
