Why you want the best sound for the Big Game

And the fans go crazy!

Can you hear this crowd? Your TV speakers won't help much either.

Statistics will tell you that week running up to the biggest day in football is the single biggest week for buying flat screen TV‘s. The world’s biggest party day deserves the biggest flat screen TV your room can hold.

But aren’t you forgetting something?

The sounds of the game. There really is nothing like the ebb and flow of the crowd to tell you how the stadium, and the team is feeling. Did you hear the Patriots fans as Brady took a knee in the last minute of the first half? Consternation and confusion. And the roar of the crowd as the Raven’s kick goes wide left in the waning seconds. You don’t even need to see the ball in the air to know what’s going on there. Sound provides full game immersion. Sound you don’t get from your TV’s piddly little 10 watt speakers.

Why would you buy the biggest flat screen TV without getting a top rated soundbar to provide the necessary depth to the game?

Energy 30" Powerbar

Our top rated soundbar choice -- the Energy 30" Powerbar

I love the Energy 30″ Power soundbar. With 200 watts and 4 speakers of game blasting sound, you’ll feel the pull of the fans as the game shifts, sound rising and falling with every snap. As one of our top rated soundbars, the Energy 30″ Power Bar pushes you into the rhythm of the game, just like you were there, but without the bone chilling temperatures.

Looking for even more immersion in the game? It’s time make the switch from a top rated soundbar to a full home theater system. When you add a subwoofer and some speakers, and you don’t just hear the rhythms of the game, you feel them in your gut.

Onkyo 7.1-channel THX certified 3D capable home theater system

Onkyo 7.1-channel THX certified 3D capable home theater system. Let the big dog bark.

So take a long, long look at the Onkyo 7.1-channel THX certified 3D capable home theater system. THX certification allows the subtle nuances of screaming fans to be understood. Like in San Francisco: every time the Giants receiver caught the ball, the way the cheers of CRUZ quickly changed to BOOS from the Niners faithful. Onkyo forces you to understand how a left tackle can have two straight false starts, when the bass is pumping and you feel like you’re at the 50 yard line. Or, in two weeks in Indianapolis, when the feet start stomping, the hands start clapping, and the dome keeps every decibel from escaping, you can feel the power.

So, while you’re basking in the glow of your brand new flat screen TV, you need to be shaking the floor with a brand new sound system. Football, it’s a gut feeling. Let a new home theater system show you why.
