Donny had past out a list of categories of businesses to each of the members to review for inviting guests to our meetings. Remember that only one person can represent a category, as to not have any competing members.
Steve Lorente from Lorente Productions was introduced as this weeks speaker. Steve passed out an agenda on the topic of Home Theater Design and What to Look Out For. He went on to explain some important points to be considered when planning a home theater. One of the most important point was that a building permit is required in most cases of installation of any electrical wiring. He also explained that home theater equipment is very delicate and needs to on its own circuit and breakers. Other home electrical devices can interfere and even damage the home theater components. He also spoke on the importance of creating an environment that will not be interfering with your neighbors. The lights, windows and even the paint color of the room all effect the quality of the system. He also explained on the proper way to determine the best size of the screen and position of the viewing chairs. Steve explained that one of the most important considerations that needs to be addressed before investing in your home theater is what are you going to be using it for. He explained that there are so many things to consider when making such a investment and it would be wise to consult an expert before investing your hard earned money.
A brief announcement about next weeks meeting at the Veterans Hall with Teresa Schilling as are speaker and the meeting was adjourned.
