How Much Will My Home Theater Cost?

All construction, electrical, installation and furnishing costs aside, here's a rundown of the equipment you'll be able to afford on a budget.


A pro at helping homeowners allocate their home theater dollars, Michael Fehmers of DSI Entertainment Systems in Studio City, CA, helped us put together this useful breakdown.



5,000

DISPLAY - A 42-inch flat-screen TV (LCD or plasma).

SOUND - A home-theater-in-a-box system, which includes a surround-sound receiver and five speakers.

CONTROL - A basic infrared remote.

ENVIRONMENT - A finished space, like your family room or den.

INSTALLATION - You'll need to set it up yourself.

$10,000

DISPLAY - A 42-inch or larger flat-screen TV (LCD or plasma).

SOUND - A surround-sound receiver with separate in-ceiling speakers and a stand-alone subwoofer.

CONTROL - A radio-frequency remote control (it's more reliable and versatile than a standard infrared clicker).

ENVIRONMENT A finished space, like your family room or den.

INSTALLATION - If you buy your own equipment you might be able to afford to have a professional install it.
