Howdy SEA Fans, Welcome to another blog post and today we are going to talk about speaker placement and how to get a lifelike sound from it.
There are many questions raised by the students of sound engineering as well as from working sound engineering professionals regarding the placement of speaker.
Audio Setup is a very crucial part in getting your system to sound correctly. Proper speaker placement can elevate an average-sounding system to an elite home theater experience.
When you want to purchase a speaker setup for your home, what you usually do is to visit a store near by and choose the best one which sounds the best. It is a fact that those speakers which sound great in the showroom doesn’t usually sounds best in your home.
Why is it so?
The speakers placed inside the showroom is kept at locations where is produces optimal sound based on the showroom’s conditions. When you take them home everything is going to be changed in terms of the amplifier, size of the room, where those speakers are kept and based on all these parameters you audio system is going to act.
Equal Speaker Distance and Angle
Let’s talk about some quick few tips on where to place the speakers in your room for the best performance.
Bass Setup and Sub woofers
In terms of the base response in your room, every room is different and once you place the speakers into your room the sound will be less clearer and with chaotic sound reflections, but what is recommended is top keep both of your speakers up against the wall and listen to it.
With regard to towing of your speakers, depending on how your image sounds you might want play around with towing-in your speakers. You can also talk to you speaker manufacturer on what is recommended for tow-in the speakers.
Don’t worry about perfection
The good news is that you don’t need to find the “perfect spot” for each speaker. Many home theater receivers offer automatic speaker calibration that takes care of things for you.
As a sound engineer do you have any other tips in mind, which you feel, will be useful to others? Do share it with the world in the comment box below.
Thanks for reading and Happy Sound Engineering.
