5 Signs You Need to Find a New Home Theater Company


Get the Best Visuals, Sound, and Experience in Your Home Theater

When adding a private theater to your Sandy Springs, Georgia home, experience and skill matter. If you want an end result that provides that fantastic, larger-than-life cinematic experience, you need to work with a home theater company that knows what it’s doing. But how do you know if your home theater installer isn’t capable of providing the quality you’re looking for? Here are five signs it’s time to switch to a new theater company:

1. They Only Offer Cookie Cutter Solutions

A home theater should be unique to your personality and lifestyle. If you want a theater themed after your favorite television show or a theater equipped with a personal snack station or wet bar, you should get it! When your home theater company responds to custom requests with “we don’t do that” or “that’s not a part of our standard offerings,” then be aware that the final theater result might not be a good fit for you. Instead, look for a company willing to tailor the home theater system to fit your needs and goals.

2. They Don’t Take Time to Establish Expectations

We know that a home theater installation is a complex process, and you may not have a clear idea of what to expect. That’s why we make a point to clearly communicate expectations, goals, timelines, costs, etc. from start to finish. If you feel like you’re in the dark about where things are with your home theater, something’s wrong. The installer should be the one proactively providing you with the information you need and find out what you want your theater to look and feel like.

3. They Don’t Assess Your Space before Developing the Solution

If you want perfect sound and visuals, you have to design the system to fit the space. Before we start any home theater project, the first thing we do is an in-person evaluation of the area you’re planning on converting into a home theater. Based on the size, shape, and acoustics of the room, we can pick out the best equipment for the space. Without a comprehensive walk through, your home theater company isn’t giving you a personalized solution—it’s a cookie-cutter product.

4. They Can’t Provide You with Any Work Examples

Would you buy a car sight unseen? It’s important to know upfront that the home theater company you’re working with has the right design style for you, and it’s hard to establish that without looking at examples of past work. Ask to see a work portfolio or project gallery. If they can’t provide any examples, it could be because they haven’t done any theaters worth showing off.

5. Theaters aren’t Their Specialty

We would not recommend going to a general electronics store or handyman if you want a quality home theater system. Installing theaters requires an in-depth knowledge of specific AV components and theater design. If you’re okay with a run-of-the-mill media system, then go for a general contractor. If you want an actual theater, then go for a company that specializes in private cinemas.

Before you can enjoy high-definition movies in your personal theater, you have to add a theater to your home! Southern Cinema is here to ensure that process is as smooth and streamlined as possible. To learn more about our theater installation services or previous work, contact us today!
