In Brooklyn theme you can have one or two sliders on the homepage. If you choose to have two sliders you must use both widget zones 'home_page_left_banner_top' and 'home_page_right_banner_top' respectively for the left and for the right slider. Also both sliders stand in relation 60 to 40 percents ( left slider hold 60% of the screen width ).  We recommend using images width equal height and same proportion ( 1:1.5).

If you decide to have only one slider you can simply use 'home_page_main_slider' widget zone, and your slider will take 100% of the homepage width.
