No home theater speaker is truly wireless, because it will need to get power from somewhere. However, some home theater systems feature a wireless transmitter that sends audio signals from the receiver to the speakers in the rear of your room. This eliminates the need to run speaker wire from the front to the back of your room. These speakers usually connect to a wireless receiver that goes in the back of your room and plugs into an AC wall outlet for power. Shop wireless surround speakers Sound bars Sound bars are simple to set up, and they’re great when you don’t have a lot of room for speakers.

Find deals and discounts on home stereo systems and home theater equipment on Newegg with the tools on this page. Here you can search and sort home stereo speakers and receivers by budget, brand, and product specifications. Unsure about how to gauge value for audio equipment? Read on to learn how to properly compare home theater systems. We will be decoding jargon to understand how cross-brand performance determines prices for Polk Audio, Klipsch, Samsung, Vizio, Bose audio equipment — and other top names in sound systems. Are you ready to reveal the best home theater system for your space? Let’s get started! Choose speaker systems by room size Most of the time, the home audio conversation starts with speaker recommendations. If you are a brand loyalist–say you want to find deals on Bose speakers, or discounts on a Klipsch surround sound system–that’s easily done using the site tools in the left navigation. Check the box next to your brand of choice to view only items by that brand. More important than brand, however, is choosing speakers that fit your home theater dimensions. Bigger is not always better for speakers, especially in a small room due to the physics of soundwaves. Do not try for massive subwoofer systems where a little wireless Bluetooth speaker is appropriate. Vendors do not make fitting speakers to a room an exact science. In fact, it might seem that brands deliberately muddy the water for sizing your stereo and speakers. Follow these common sense rules when picking the best home audio speakers for your room and you will be on the right track: Tower speaker height should not exceed half of your ceiling height. You have eight-foot ceilings? Speakers over four feet are overkill. In fact, unless you’re doing pro audio a four foot speaker is probably the largest you should consider. If you want big bass, you need a big space. The physics of sound is such that a 30 Hz frequency (a bone-rattling low tone) sounds best at 37 feet away. A 60 Hz low-end is more appropriate for listening from 15-20 feet. Use bookshelf speakers for music; this isn’t a hard rule, but in general, most genres don’t require ultra-low frequencies subwoofer unless you want to violate a noise ordinance. Subwoofers seal the deal for a movie-theater experience. Bass is for explosions and dinosaurs. If you’re going to spring for 5.1 or 6.1 surround sound it’s a good idea to invest a little extra into the subwoofer. You want to feel low frequencies in your solar plexus.
