How To Build A Home Theater System (2018)

 
 

The Basics

This is a quick tutorial for building a home theater system from start to finish. This includes setting up a projector or a TV with a home theater system. In this video I cover everything you need to get started and a general overview of how to connect everything. I've already covered the details of 4K, HDMI, Home Theater Audio, Home Theater Video, and How To Install a Projector. This video brings everything to together. 
Here are some example home theater setups starting with my own:
