3.1 Speaker System and Home Theater Receiver Bundle
A 3.1 home theater system INCLUDES a front left and a front right speaker which should be located at or near each side of your television or projection screen; a center channel speaker for dialogue which should be located underneath your TV, projection screen, or ultra short throw projector; a powered subwoofer to provide low frequency bass effects which usually sounds best located near a corner of the room; and a surround sound receiver. Speaker wire, subwoofer cable, and HDMI cables are sold separately.
A 3.1 home theater bundle DOES NOT INCLUDE rear surround speakers to complete a 5.1 home theater system.
To be sure that you are buying at the lowest possible price (due to price variations, fluctuations, and sales), compare the BUNDLE PRICE to the TOTAL IF YOU INSTEAD ADD EACH SYSTEM COMPONENT TO YOUR SHOPPING CART INDIVIDUALLY (INCLUDING SHIPPING) before completing your purchase either way!
Do you already have some decent sounding small speakers that could function as rear surrounds, or simply prefer to select and purchase them separately? Perhaps you mostly listen to music, but also desire the dialogue separation provided by a dedicated center channel speaker. Or, maybe your room’s size and/or shape won’t accommodate (running wire to) rear surround speakers. Check out the budget 3.1 home theater system bundle pictured below (with just one of its two front speakers) which includes a pair of discontinued Polk tower speakers and center channel speaker, a Polk subwoofer, and a Denon home theater receiver.
