Home Theater 101: What is an Acoustically Transparent Screen?, Cornelius, North Carolina

Instead of facing the crowds on a Friday night, picture how enjoyable and comfortable it would be to settle back on your couch in the comfort of your own home, watching your family’s favorite movie on a personal big screen.

Your home theater experience should be immersive, cinematic, and entertaining—and for some homeowners, an acoustically transparent screen is the perfect way to achieve that. Here’s what you should know about this type of projector screen.

What is an Acoustically Transparent Screen?


If your speakers need to be placed behind the projection screen, your home theater contractor may recommend an acoustically transparent screen, which allows sound waves to travel through the surface of the screen without interference.

This setup is ideal for spaces that cannot fit speakers along the side of the screen. An acoustically transparent screen can also conceal loudspeakers that would otherwise detract from the decor in your living area.

Improving Your Home Theater

In standard audio equipment setups, speakers placed behind the screen could cause the picture’s image to distort or diminish the quality of the audio. However, this isn’t an issue with the super-fine materials used to create acoustically transparent screens. They create the illusion of a character’s voice coming from “behind” the picture, as opposed to beneath the screen or along the sides. The result is an immersive audio experience that complements your movie, rather than competing for your attention.

To get the best results from your audio equipment, work with an experienced home theater installation company that can recommend the right equipment for your space, preferences, and budget. You’re just a few steps away from a transformative cinema experience in the comfort of your living room!
