Project Overview

These clients called Theater Design Northwest and had whole house speakers with a surround system that wasn’t setup correctly and didn’t work. They also wanted to step up to a 60″ display with a fairly difficult over fireplace install. This system was fairly messed up, the best way to proceed was disassemble everything and just start over. Once connected properly to a carefully mounted new Samsung display, we ID’d the house speakers and went to work on calibration and setup. The smallish HK/Onkyo sound system performed surprisingly well in their room and we were able to get audio in 2 additional rooms with the gear they had on hand.

Key Components


  • Samsung LED HDTV
  • Harman Kardon AV receiver
  • Yamaha 5.1 speaker system



Having some pro level service really helped these clients to enjoy their setup, as their system had come with the home and never worked correctly.
