Corner Mount, Wall Mount or in a lot of cases the television ends up positioned above the fireplace. People always ask us if it is a problem mounting their television above a hot fire. We have no problem mounting above a fireplace, especially if they have a large enough mantle. It is always recommended that you monitor the heat coming out the fireplace and be logical about how much they expose their televisions to that heat. With regards to the sizes of the televisions we recommend for installation above the fireplace we typically see 60inch models being mounted above the fireplace, however, the size of television you choose will be a personal choice based on budget and aesthetics.

Every surround sound system requires a subwoofer. A subwoofer is a small square box that provides the deep bass that really helps movies and music impact your emotions. Sounds Good have almost as many subwoofer options as we have speaker options. Small cubes in every colour you can imagine, in wall units and completely hidden options. The big differences between the ranges of subwoofers we offer are the prices. You will get the best value from the cube units we can hide in cabinets or under end tables. In wall and completely hidden options will typically run about double the price but prove to be the best option when a clean look is desired.

When properly set-up your front speakers, surround speakers and subwoofers can combine to provide an outstanding surround sound experience in your media room.
