When should you consider buying a soundbar?

Do you think your TV needs an upgrade? Do you wish to get rid of the terrible warbling noise that comes out from your TV?

You’ve landed on the right page because we have a solution for you. A dedicated Home Theatre System! Yes, that’s what you need. And in case of smaller rooms, a soundbar would suffice too!

When should you consider buying a soundbar?

When should you consider buying a soundbar?

  • When “SPACE” is a constraint
  • When “BUDGET” is a constraint
  • When you’re in need of improved sound quality

A soundbar is the most popular way to improve sound quality beyond a TV's built-in speakers. The best thing is that there’s nothing difficult when it comes to a soundbar. It usually involves plugging in just a single cable. Not just that, it enables decent sound to be enjoyed from considerably lower prices.

This chart might help you make an appropriate choice

We have for you, a few soundbar lengths in accordance with different TV screen sizes. Have a look

Length in Inches TV Screen Size
12 Any
38 to 45 42-inch to 50-inch
50 50-inch to 65-inch
60 70-inch and larger


Take note that the length of a soundbar doesn't correspond directly to the screen size of your TV, as televisions are measured diagonally. 

Of course, the soundbar may not necessarily match the width of your TV, even if they're both by the same manufacturer. So if this is important to you, check the width of both models in the manufacturers' spec sections before you buy. 

However, if you are an audiophile who is keen on experiencing the real pleasure of what a filmmaker or an artist had for you in mind, there exists a home theatre setup irrespective of the space constraint.

Home Theatre setups for smaller rooms

Home Theatre setups for smaller rooms

We have for you, a few soundbar lengths in accordance with different TV screen sizes. Have a look:
  • For rooms with minimal space, a home theatre package that uses bookshelf sized speakers would be an ideal choice. 

  • For slightly spacious rooms, we would recommend going for a 7.1 setup with a package that comes with either bookshelf or floor standing speakers.

When should you consider buying a Home Theatre System? 

  • When you have enough “SPACE” in your room
  • When you have enough “BUDGET” 
  • When the desire for amplified entertainment tops your list;

A Home Theatre System offers an audio experience that remains faithful to the artists’ creative intent.

It is a package that includes an amplifier, speakers, subwoofers and AV receivers. All you need is a television or a projector and you’re good to go. A Blu-ray player or a gaming console can be added based on your requirements.

Before finalizing a Home Theatre System, ask yourself these questions

1. What am I going to use it for?

A bigger surround system should be inclined more towards movie watching, it’s worth spending a little bit extra. If you’re planning to use it for music or gaming, it is wiser to consider slightly fewer speakers.

Tip: Spend most of your budget on speakers

2. Am I considering my room size? 

The size of the room establishes the seating arrangement and optimum placement of audio equipment.

3. Which audio technology will best suit my needs?

When the conversation is about surround sound, various audio technologies like Dolby Atmos, DTS X, Sony Dynamic digital sound are some of the best ones. In comparison to the basic 5.1 Home Theatre setup, an addition of an Atmos speaker thereby making it 5.1.2 would incredibly impact the audio performance. We would certainly recommend a 5.1.2 setup for enhanced sound quality.

4. What are the features that my AV receivers are offering?

First-time buyers usually tend to prefer receivers with innumerable features which they won’t even be using most of the times. There are many receivers with a limited number but important features like 4k video compatibility with multiple no.of audio and video outputs. 

We would recommend you to be careful about your selection.

5. What about the connectivity options?

6. Do I need to worry about “wattage and speaker matching”?

You don’t have to worry about wattage and speaker matching in some home theatre systems as they’re factory tuned for perfection. However, if you’re opting for individual speaker setup, speaker placement has to be on priority for accurate audio distribution.

7. Are there any additional accessories that I should be considering to create an exceptional Home Theatre System? 

Room calibration and acoustic proofing are some of the aspects that should be looked into if you’re keen on building a lossless and echo proof audio theatre at home.

In our opinion, brands like Elac, Polk Audio, B&W, KEF, Pioneer, Q Acoustics, Yamaha, Denon and Marantz are some of the best ones to be considered while buying home theatre systems.

Looking for a stereo amplifier having 60watts output(rms) in each channel plus an additional subwoofer output.
a good pair of speakers (3 way speakers ie with 12 inch woofer, 8 inch midrange and good tweeter in each enclosure) each speaker having the capacity to handle 50 watts power (rms). The total for amp + speakers should not exceed Rs. 75000/-
