Types of Home Theater Audio System

You can choose from four basic types of home theater audio systems:

Home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems

Sound bars
Component systems

Home-theater-in-a-Box (HTIB) Systems

Usually five surround sound speakers, a subwoofer, and a disc player/amplifier. Sold as a unit, in one box (hence the name). Includes all wiring.


A long, thin bar containing several loudspeaker units. Offers virtual surround sound. Usually designed for mounting on a wall below a flat-panel TV, which sometimes can be synchronized with a wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere around the allowed connectivity range.

Component Systems

Your choice of an audio/video (A/V) receiver, speakers, and any source components (such as a 4K Blue-Ray player).


Component systems with separate preamplifier/processor and power amplifiers that replace the receiver.

Which should you choose? Well your considerations should include:

Your Budget

Sound systems are available in a range of prices; here are general guidelines.

Price Ranges

$200–$1,000: Home-theater-in-a-box (HTIB) systems. A few deluxe models are priced much higher. HTIB systems usually have small speaker systems.
$250–$2,000: Sound bars offer an alternative when you simply don’t have the space for a surround sound system. Many include a separate wireless subwoofer.
$1,000–$3,000: Component home theater systems, based on an A/V receiver.
$3,000 and up: Component home theater systems with top-of-the-line receivers or preamplifier/amplifier separates, and large speakers.
Essentially, for all equipment, more money can buy more features and higher maximum listening levels.
If you’re planning a component system, save about 50 percent of your budget for the speakers.

Your Room

Where you plan to set up your system can dictate what you’ll need. A large speaker system can overwhelm a small room. And a sound bar won’t be able to fill a large room with sound. When planning, remember to prepare routes for the wires to the surround speakers, furniture, and electrical power.

The Right System for Your Room

Here are some equipment guidelines for room sizes and functions:
Dorm room or similar: Look to HTIB systems or a sound bar. Component systems with small speakers may also be suitable.
Apartment living room: HTIB, soundbar, or small component system. This will depend on how well the system fits with your furniture (and your neighbors).
Larger living room: Component system. To create a separate home theater area in the room, an HTIB or sound bar may be adequate.
Den or “man cave”: Component system. Create a dream system just for you.
Dedicated home theater room: Design the best component system you can fit and afford. The ideal is to have a dedicated home theater room, where a home theater system is installed and you’ll really enjoy.
