The Battle of the Sexes Comes to Home Theater Design


Control4 Woman in Kitchen with Home Audio ControlYou’d think men, with their love of big screen TVs for football watching, would be the one to be in the market for a high-tech home theater system, wouldn’t you?

We’ll, you’d be surprised.

In my 20 or so years of installing home theater systems, I’ve discovered primarily two types of customers that are split across the sexes: The man of the house, typically a husband, who is big into the technology and wants an awesome home theater installed for his castle.  That’s the main type of customer you probably think of, too.

But then you have the woman of the house.  She’s typically tired of having 30 remotes on the coffee table.  She’s tired of wires, of seeing different black boxes that do different things and DVD or CD cases cluttering up the TV stand or living room.

Typically, he wants performance and she wants aesthetics.

And men think they can do it all, too. From one survey:

When it comes to installing a home theater, nearly half of men say they are very confident they can do it themselves while just three in 10 women say the same. In fact, the majority of women surveyed (51%) say they are not at all confident about installing a home theater themselves.

Typical of us guys, right?
