Surround Sound Challenges

Sometimes adding a surround sound system to your Charlotte-area home is a fairly simple project.

In cases where the speakers can’t be installed in the walls or mounted on the ceiling, you can use upward firing speakers, which play the soundtrack directly upward so the sound reflects off the ceiling and back down towards you.
