Everything you need to know about finding a speaker supplier
The right speakers can deliver an exceptional experience when watching movies, your favourite television shows and listening to music.
Types of Speakers
There are two main types of speakers:
Traditional – These speakers are operated by cones which are shifted by electromagnetic forces. The speaker cabinets have a minimum of two drivers, one that picks up low notes and the other for the high notes. Middle notes are shared between the two. The very high-end traditional speakers have multiple speaker cones each pointing in a different direction.
Electrostatic – This type of speaker is larger than the traditional type, but they are much thinner and more unobtrusive, making them ideal for mounting into ceilings and walls. Electrostatic speakers have very detailed and fine sound, but due to their thin profile they sometimes have a very poor bass quality.
Having selected the type of speaker system you want, the next decision is what style of speaker you find more appealing. Here are some options:
Floor-standing – The most common type of speaker, they are often large, produce a wide range of sounds from very high pitched to deep bass sounds.
Bookshelf – They may not have the biggest sound range, but these speakers are attractive and save floor space by slotting neatly into the average bookshelf.
Centre channel – These speakers are the basics of a home theatre sound system. They are usually placed on a cradle or are mounted below or above the television. They produce a wide range of frequencies and reproduce both dialogue and music very well.
Surround – These multi-directional speakers are small but powerful. They can be easily held in one hand. Because of their tiny size they process high and mid-range sounds well but are a bit lacking in bass sounds. They take up almost no space and can be mounted on a wall or ceiling. They deliver a great sound in a small space.
Subwoofers – Processing the low frequency sound waves is all these speakers do. From booming thunder to wall-vibrating rhythms, a subwoofer is essential to any good sound system. A subwoofer can be positioned anywhere in the room.
Sound bars – These will fit where a larger speaker won’t. They take up very little space, provide excellent sound quality and are available with a subwoofer built in.
In-wall and in-ceiling – The ultimate in space saving, these speakers can be mounted in walls or ceilings and the grilles can even be painted to match the décor or become invisible.
Wireless - Just like other wireless devices, these speakers dispense with messy wiring and can be placed anywhere in a room.
