How to prepare for a Super Bowl Party: 4 Steps

Christmas has come and gone and the New Year has been celebrated, it’s time to get ready for the next BIG American holiday, the Super Bowl! The big game is less than a month away and will be played on February 2nd in Phoenix, Arizona.

Many people will be taking advantage of new electronics they received over the holidays to host a stellar Super Bowl party and show off those new flat-screens. Here are a few tips to make sure your home theater is set up and ready to host the party of the century, courtesy of Doctor Sound Home Theater Inc.

1. Get a Good TV

If you didn’t update your home television over the holidays, now is the perfect time to do so. It’s very important that everyone at your Super Bowl party has the ability to see the game. While this may seem obvious, remember the average Super Bowl party has 17 people which can make viewing difficult. Have your TV sitting on a low entertainment center? Now is the perfect time to get that wall-mount, the higher up it is in your room, the easier it is for large crowds to see. Round it off with professional hidden wire services from Doctor Sound. You may even consider bringing in a second TV somewhere in your house, just make sure they aren’t out of sync. If one set is slightly ahead of the other because of a lag in your receiver, the people in the back room will hear everyone in the front cheering before the play is finished, a serious party foul.


2. Universal Remote

Hosting a party is the worst time to keep up with a dozen different remotes, now is the time to get a universal remote set up to control your television, sound system, and cable receiver all from one device. No more lifting couch pillows trying to find the remote you need to rewind the game to catch a missed play.

3. Clear up Floor Space

You may consider rearranging your furniture to maximize viewing and give guests plenty of room to move around and cheer without the fear of bumping into something. Bring in some pillows for floor sitters and temporarily relocate bookshelves, baskets, toys, pet beds, etc. that take up valuable floor space.


4. Clean the Equipment

You’ll definitely want to clean off your screen, just gently dust with a microfiber cloth or disposable duster, and use a pre-moistened electronics wipe to clear away any stubborn spots and smudges that can ruin a game. If you have speakers, clean the covers with your vacuum’s soft dusting brush or upholstery tool. If the speaker covers are removable, go over both sides and nab any obvious dust behind and around them.
