Wi-Fi 6 is a next-generation wireless technology which was previously known as 802.11 ax, but later on, the Wi-Fi Alliance decided to change the name and gave it a more handy name. Wi-Fi 6 is superior to the Wi-Fi 5 in most ways. Wi-Fi 5 is used in current routers and other internet devices.

The aim behind changing its name is to make the name easier to remember and understand. Rather than using meaningless numbers and letters which most of the people don’t remember, terms like 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G, are easier to remember.

But what features we are getting in the new version Wi-Fi 6? If you think that it is faster than you are absolutely right.  It works much faster than its previous version. It has been designed in such a way that will provide more stable and overall better Wi-Fi performance even when a crowd is using it. It has many other advantages over the Wi-Fi 5.

Wi-Fi 6 Release Date

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Wi-Fi 6 will be released in ‘later in 2019.’ From this statement, it seems that Wi-Fi 6 is likely to be released somewhere at the end of 2019. The Wi-Fi devices will be labeled as Wi-Fi 6 in the upcoming months.

Now you may have noticed that some Wi-Fi routers are currently being sold labeled as Wi-Fi 6(802.11ax). You have noticed the right thing but do you know that these early created routers use a draft version of Wi-Fi 6 which was not finalized. So the upcoming devices will be more stable and will have more features.

If you have a Wi-Fi 6 enabled router then you will also require its compatible client device on the other end of the connection to get the peak performance of your new router.

Wi-Fi 6 Specifications And Performance

Wi-Fi has 2.4GHz and 5GHz band frequency so that it will be a lot faster than the older Wi-Fi routers. It boosts the speed up to 375 when compared to the others. It is more focused on better performance even when it is connected with many devices. So even if you are in a building, a public venue or other crowded places, its speed and performance won’t be that much affected.

It uses a key player with OFDMA technology which stands for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access. This new technology allows Wi-Fi 6  to works faster and performs better even when multiple devices use it.

Are you bored with your old fashioned TV and model 19 speakers? If yes, then you have come to the right place. This article will tell you how you can set up a home theater in 2019 with different components and parts. So let’s get started and see what things we need to make our home a home theater.

What Do We Need To Setup A New Home Theater?

Do you have a 4K or Full HD TV? Do you have a home theater speaker system such as 5.1 or 7.1 channel speaker system? Do you have a Blu-ray player or DVD player? Do you have a media streaming player such as Amazon TV Fire Stick, Roku, or Apple TV? If you are missing any components, then you will have to buy them to set up a perfect home theater. A 7.1 speaker system will be better for setting up a perfect home theater.

5.1 Channel Speakers System Setup

In a 5.1 channel home theater, you have the front left and right speakers, a center one, left and right surround speakers and a subwoofer. Below are some tips to place them in such a  way to experience the cinema hall sound quality.

  • Front center speaker: Put it underneath your TV or in the front-center.
  • Subwoofer: Put it in the left to the right side of your TV (never fix a subwoofer to the wall at a certain height, the subwoofer is meant to be placed directly on the ground).
  • Front Left and Right Channels: Place at their corresponding sides, the left speaker must be placed at the left side of your TV and the right speaker to the other side.  The front speakers must be placed proportionally to the center speaker.
  • Rear/ Surround left or right speakers: Put them at the 140-150 degrees from your TV or projector screen. These speakers should be a little behind to your seating.

7.1 Channel Speakers System Setup

  • Front speakers setup would remain the same as the setup of 5.1 speakers. It means that your front center, left/right, and subwoofer speakers would stay the same as above.
  • Left /right surround speakers: These speakers should be placed at the right and the left side of your seating.
  • Rear surround speakers: They should be placed slightly behind you and their responsive sides.
