With music lovers, building their own music room is more than just a dream, it is the desire of every single person who is interested in music and sound system. However, not many people know how to actually buy the right sound devices without wasting too much money. To beginners, this is one of the most common problems.
When start surveying about anything, you can’t avoid common technical mistakes, so do sound devices. Especially when you purchase loudspeakers, there are even several misunderstandings. This post will discuss those problems and some solutions so that you can estimate the money you should spend on these devices.
Caution: though this article can actually help you to avoid some of the most common and obvious problems when choosing and selecting loudspeakers, you still need at least one expert to help you out when constructing your own music room. You really don’t want to mess things up, trust me!
The Capacity Of The Loudspeakers
Many people believe that there is a very close connection between the sizes of the loudspeakers with their capacity. They often introduce the big speaker with a recommendation about high capacity, and often say that “you should choose this loudspeaker because it is twice bigger than that one, it means the capacity is two times higher as well”. Can we believe in this fact?
Of course not, it is completely wrong to judge the capacity of a sound device based on its size, especially loudspeakers. Actually, the capacity of a loudspeaker depends heavily on the sensitivity of the speaker. For example, if you are using a loudspeaker with the sensitivity of 90dB, it just needs 1W to produce the sound with 90dB in strength, needs 10W to create one with 100dB and 100W with the strength of 110dB. As you can see, there is nothing relates to the size of the speaker.
There is even a formula to help you calculate the loudspeaker’s capacity in these situations. That’s the reason why there are many types of the speaker with the capacity of the only 100W which is far cheaper than a 500W speaker with the same sensitivity but just less than 6dB in terms of sound strength. This is also a good suggestion for you to make a selection of the family sound system. You only need 120W loudspeakers to meet all the sounding demands in your family with a reasonable price. Don’t waste money for bigger devices because they are made for much bigger space use.
The Price Doesn’t Always Come Along With Quality
It is not wrong but not absolutely right as well. Everybody thinks that the speakers have their prices and the high the prices are, the better the quality would be. It’s partly right because of the price range and the functions, but you can totally buy a good quality one with a reasonable price to save your budget for other devices, or you can accidentally spend too much money on a worthless product. It depends on how well your knowledge is about this type of sound product.
If your pair of the loudspeaker is manufactured by a well – known brand with so many achievements and widely recognized by other companies in the sounding industry, it is really good to buy. The high price is reasonable and acceptable. After all, what you need is the quality, not the money saved.
However, if you are looking for something within your budget and you don’t have money to look at the top shelf with labeled products, please be careful. Don’t listen to the retailers because they just want to sell products. And don’t be fooled by the appearance as well. Focus on the quality first, because the appearance can be modified easily. Some prices are suspicious, that’s why you should get someone who is experienced to come with your and make some tests before investing money.
The Design Is Good For Listening To Music All Day Long
These thoughts are quite acceptable. It makes sense to think that every sound product has its own safe functions to protect customer’s ears. However, it is not the truth. The manufacturers don’t really care much about the health of customers. Of course, there are some limits about the sounds produced as well as the safety functions, but it’s not – so – safe at all. That’s the reason why you have to get rid of the thinking that when you buy a loudspeaker, you can listen to it anytime for how long you want.
You have to remember that the ears have its own limitation and you really don’t want to push it to the limit. If you listen to music for a long time with loud volume, not only headphones but also loudspeakers can damage your ears and make some negative effects on your body.
Problems With The Line
According to the theory of the line manufacturers, it seems like the lines play a very important part in the operation of the loudspeaker and affect greatly to the sound quality of the sound system. In fact, not many people have such amazing ears to distinguish the differences between different types of wires.
The line can only be effective if the source – music player devices and the receiver – loudspeakers have the same quality and they are quite high – end actually. Or else, most people can’t see the slight difference in sound quality when replacing lines. It’s not applicable to use high-quality lines for low – budget sound system with the hope that it would be better somehow.
With the raising demands for music room of young people, especially music lovers, the sound industry is becoming a million – dollar business with so many manufacturers. That’s the reason for the diversity of product and price range recently. Because of that, customers have to be even more careful in selecting the right types of sound devices like a record player, loudspeaker, amplifier… so that the money is put in the right place with the right amount. The best way is to ask for advice from experts in sound systems and look for reviews online for further information.
