Average Home Theater Installations

Updated: Sep 29, 2022

Last week I showed you some of the most outrageous home theaters in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This week I'll show some of the more average home theaters in cost alone. For cheaper setups, they all still look great.


Our home theaters are usually starting at $15,000. That may be a lot for some people, but that includes a projector, screen, and speaker system. There's more that you can add to the setup, but that's the minimum. The other option would be using a TV and soundbar, which is much cheaper but is known as a media room rather than a theater.


Let's check out some of the average home theaters.


5. THE ONE WITH THE BACKLIGHTING - $90,000

THE ONE WITH THE BACKLIGHTING

This theater has the basic setup (projector, screen, and audio). However, what makes this one more expensive than the others is the furniture and design. The sound treatment, the lighting, and the seating areas can cost you a few tens of thousands more.


4. THE TUFTY-TIME SEATING - $35,000

THE TUFTY-TIME SEATING

This theater belongs to Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Comfortability was a priority when choosing the furniture for this theater. This is one of the most tone-downed home theaters, specifically for a celebrity, but the most expensive one on this list. This theater includes a projector, a screen, and in-ceiling speakers.


3. STADIUM SEATING - $20,000

STADIUM SEATING

This is a DIY theater. It includes a Panasonic projector, an unnamed screen, several speakers at the front and back, and in each seat, four chairs, as well as a universal remote control. Home Stratosphere


2. THE SCENIC THEATER - $20,000

THE SCENIC THEATER

This is Enrique Iglesias's Miami Beach home theater/media room. There's a large TV at the front rather than a projector screen. The larger TV designed for a home theater look can cost a few thousand dollars. The furniture and audio system would be the rest of the cost.


1. THE SOPHISTICATED THEATER - $18,000
