FAQs

  1. Can you install a plasma television above my fireplace?

    Yes you can. Most of today’s fireplaces are created so the vent does not get extremely hot. In fact, you can now even have drywall over the fireplace instead of having the entire wall brick.

  2. I don’t know everything I need to make my home theater work right. Will you help me figure it all out?

    This is what we pride ourselves on. Not only do we have up-to-date knowledge of the newest electronics, we know where to get them for the cheapest price. We will locate the best deal for you and will deliver your product so you do not even have to leave your home.

  3. I’ve seen other people’s surround sound setups and I like how they sound, but I don’t like all of the speakers and wires everywhere. What can you do for me?

    We will completely hide all wires (and speakers if necessary) in the walls or ceiling of your home leaving nothing exposed, only leaving the terrific sound.

  4. Can I listen to a DVD movie in our theater room while my wife listens to her IPod on our bedroom speakers?

    Sure, we can help you customize your equipment so that you can hear anything you want, in any room you want, at any time you want!

  5. After the installation is complete, will I be able to operate my new equipment easily?

    Of course, we will program a remote that will allow you to effortlessly operate your entire system at the touch of a button.

No job is too big or too small. The important part is discovering what is right for you.

Tip of the Week

Lower the Contrast on Your TV!!

One thing that upsets me about TV manufacturers is how nearly every TV comes out of the box setup for a store’s display. The biggest problem with that is the contrast is usually turned all the way up to 11. This creates a lot of noise in the picture with almost no gain to the […]
