5.2.2 Speaker System and Home Theater Receiver Bundles
A 5.2.2 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; elevation speakers for vertical height effects either built into the top of, or as separate modules sitting atop, each front speaker and firing upwards reflecting off the ceiling; a center channel speaker for dialogue which should be located underneath your TV, projection screen, or ultra short throw projector; a pair of rear surround speakers for off-screen effects which should be located near each side of, or slightly behind, your seating area; two powered subwoofers to provide low frequency bass effects which usually sound best located near the corners of the room; and a 7.2-channel or more surround sound receiver. Speaker wire, subwoofer cables, and HDMI cables are sold separately.
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!
