When surround sound was first realised, it was in the realm of commercial cinemas, and it made us all gasp with excitement. Before surround sound, listeners would experience home audio only from the front centre speaker and the 2 front speakers, left & right.

Surround sound gives the listener an enhanced audio experience as individual audio channels are expressed through the listeners various speakers.

Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast in this sixth movie from the petrol-head franchise which began way back in 2001. Once again fast cars, chase scenes and “high-stakes adventure” are the hallmark of the latest installment. Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist in Fast & Furious 5 toppled a kingpin's empire and scored them a whopping $100 million, the group have scattered across the globe. Unable to return home because of their criminal records, although wealthy, they find themselves living a life on the run.
I wanted to install some speakers in the kids upstairs “playroom”, because until now any music they wanted to listen to was from their ipods and portable stereos. Having written about our in-ceiling speakers a few times, I knew it was time I had some installed. As they were being installed, I thought that I’d just insert myself into the process and take some photos so you can see how it’s done.
