5.1 surroundA type of surround sound with 5 distinct sound channels and a LFE (low-frequency effects) channel: Center, Front Left, Front Right, Rear Left, and Rear Right.  The .1 refers to the LFE channel, which is so named because it only reproduces the lower 1/10 of the sound frequency (the deep bass tones) of the other channels.  Each channel requires a separate speaker.  Dolby and DTS both offer 5.1 Surround technologies.
