19 Ways to Make Your Super Bowl Spectacular
By Steven CastleIt only happens once a year, so a little prep can ensure your big game experience is the best it can be.
Like this year's Super Bowl coaches, you don't want any last-minute surprises. A video display, surround-sound system or remote control that doesn't work on game day is the equivalent of a star quarterback showing up with a broken leg.
So how do you make sure you score big with your cool audio/video setup on Super Bowl Sunday? Just like a great football team, you've got to think ahead and plan ahead. For the surest result, it's best to huddle with your trusty custom electronics (CE) pro ahead of time so you know that all the pieces and parts of your entertainment system are in good condition.
We recommend you schedule a service call at least two weeks before game day to get ready for your Super Bowl party, says David Devanna of Electronics Design Group (EDG) in Piscataway, N.J. As Devanna explains, even something as innocuous as a tiny IR (infrared) flasher that has fallen off the face of a piece of equipment can render your entertainment system's control moot. A simple little fix [like re-adhering the flasher] can avoid a devastated day, so be a little proactive, he says.GAME PREP
An ounce of preparation can save a ton of frustration later on, so schedule a check-up for your system now - before you mail out the party invitations.
