Surround speakers provide users with a way to create an immersive listening experience whether they are watching a movie or enjoying their favourite music. The most common home surround sound setup is the 5.1 configuration, which has five speakers and one subwoofer, but there are also 7.1- and 9.1-channel systems, which deliver improved ambience. For surround sound in a small room or at a desk, a 2.1-channel is a good choice.


With large systems of 5.1 channels and above, users often need to map the speakers to produce accurate audio placement. Fortunately, most surround speakers such as from Bose, Sony, and LG provide users with an easy way to do this. A good set of surround speakers makes any movie or gaming session a truly enjoyable experience.
