When kicking back to watch you favorite movie in high definition and hear every little whisper in digital sound through the surround sound system, taking advantage of some of the latest technology in home theater chairs can offer some surprising treats. In addition to comfort and durability, many of the home theater chairs also have quality speakers built into the headrests, providing sound quality where it can provide the best reproduction.
Whether buying single seat home theater chairs or looking for seats attached together to simulate actually being in a theater can provide the kind of relaxation and comfort that only quality seating can afford. To add even more realism to home theater chairs there are special effects chairs through which many of the crashes and rumbles can be felt as well as heard. With these types of chairs, instead of connecting the main bass or subwoofer wire to the speaker the wire is connected to a box underneath the chair. Instead of hearing the sound of a rumble, the chair vibrates adding a new level of realism to the experience.
Additionally, many home theater chairs are available as recliners to add even more comfort, and some are ideal as portable chairs that can be moved around the house depending on the needs for seating.
Seating Arrangements Depend On TV Size
How home theater chairs are arranged will depend on the size of the screen as well as the size of the room. Some televisions also no not lend themselves to viewed from the side and some rear projection screens lose their image at just 10 or 15 degrees from the center of the screen. Most flat screen LCD and plasma monitors offer a clear picture up to 70-degrees or more from center, allowing more home theater chairs to be placed around the television.
In most homes space available for home theater chairs will be limited by the room size and even having special chairs may not be a possibility. With larger televisions seating can be as far away as 10 or 15 feet and still make for pleasant viewing, but the recommended distance from the screen, which varies by screen size, may not provide enough room in the viewing area for home theater chairs to fit.
The type of upholstery available for home theater chairs runs from pure leather to burlap and is usually chosen based on the people and their ages most likely to use them. In households with a lot of children or where people like to party hard while watching television, easy to clean and maintain coverings are best.
