4 Home Theater Upgrades Ideal for Sports Fans

Home Furniture

A home theater can serve so many purposes and interests. If you are a major sports fan, then a home theater provides a great way to enjoy your favorite teams on the big screen. When you choose to upgrade your home theater system, you may want to consider upgrades and installations directly catered to the sports you enjoy watching.

Learn about four different home theater upgrades which will enhance the way you watch sports and allow you to get in the game even more than before. Whether you watch sports alone or host friends over to enjoy games, there are a wide variety of options for your sports entertainment.

1. Supplemental Screens

Whether you enjoy watching major sports like football, basketball, or baseball, there are numerous times when multiple games are on at the same time. To help keep track of all the action, consider the installation of supplement screens in your home entertainment area.

A smaller television can flank on each side of the large big screen centerpiece of the home theater. Adding a TV to each side creates a nice symmetrical look that makes the action easy to follow. Large cabinets may also hold the televisions on swing-out brackets that may conceal the screens when you don’t need the extra TVs.

Even if you do not need the screens for three different games, there are still ways to make use of them while you watch content. For example, you may have a sports channel on one of the side screens to give score updates and highlights.

With built-in surround sound, you have the option to easily switch audio sources on each screen so you can hear commentary on any game you choose.

2. Advanced Universal Remotes

Sports games are often all over TV. Games may air on major networks, local channels, or through sports packages. Help keep your sports channels organized with advanced universal remotes. The highly detailed remotes will allow you to save a quick access list to tap and select the sports channel you want.

Some of the more advanced functions in the remote may include the ability to access game scores, load up video apps for sports highlights, and control picture-in-picture functions on the main television.  The remote will provide you quick access to all the settings without the need for multiple remotes or too many steps to access what you want.

3. Whole-Home Audio

When watching live sports, action can happen at any moment. You have the option to pause the game, but you may have guests over who watch as well. To help ensure you do not miss anything while you watch, you may consider the installation of whole-home audio.

With whole-home audio, you have the ability to hear the television sound source from speakers anywhere in the house. For example, you may prepare meals and food for the football game while you listen to the action.

In some cases, the game may not be on television. Whole-home audio allows you to connect to radio broadcasts of the game you want to listen to.

4. Seat Shaker Amplifier

Enhance the way you watch sports with the installation of seat shaker amplifiers. The amps will use the bass from sound effects to provide vibrations while you watch games. For example, you may feel vibrations during football tackles or feel the loud slams of a pro-wrestling match.

The amplifiers are a fun way to enhance games and help viewers feel like part of the action while they watch. Along with sports, the amplifiers work with movies and television shows to add a rumble and vibration while viewers watch.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    Todd and his staff were very professional and easy to work with during our recent project of updating our home entertainment system. I wouldn't think twice about referring A Tech Easy Living Store!!! Thanks

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
