How To Choose A Good Speaker

Jun 15, 2008
Composing, recording and reproducing music is not enough; it should reach the ears of the music lovers. And that is why, beside other musical instruments, the speaker is also an important component of the music gear. A speaker is a device through which we receive the sound or the music. Therefore, it is very essential to choose a good speaker that will deliver high quality sound and which has high frequency level like the 2-way speakers and 3-way speakers.

However, most of the speakers of the recent times are engineered to reproduce lively and dynamic digital sources. Having been made in innovative designs, they deliver detailed and powerful sound. Moreover, nowadays there are various options to choose, starting from large floor-standing powered tower speaker to great sounding satellites that will fit in the palm of the hands. However, as the options go on increasing, the choosing has to be done very carefully.

The first step in choosing a good speaker is to decide what kind of speaker is required: whether it is a floor-standing speaker, a subwoofer or satellite system speaker, and an in wall, in ceiling or an outdoors speaker. Actually, choosing the type of speaker will depend on the purpose for which it is going to be used. Now, all these different speakers have different qualities and features. For instance, subwoofers are the tiniest speakers with amazing performance whereas, floor standing speakers are the larger ones with wide range of frequencies and deep bass. Therefore, a proper decision has to be made as to which one to prefer.

One more fact is related to the listening level. High sound does not mean loud noise; it means quality sound with normal listening levels. With this comes the nature of the sound. A good speaker should deliver clear, natural and lively sound with no distortion. And moreover, a good speaker should have the capability to make the illusion of a live performance very believable.

Next thing to decide is whether to choose a branded speaker or a second hand one. This is a matter that depends upon the quality of the speaker. It is not necessary that the imported or branded speakers will be better. Often they prove to be good but features should be checked properly. This is also a fact that the used speakers too are fine sometimes but that needs minute checking. In fact, used speaker is quite inexpensive.

But in case of the speaker required for professional use such as stage performance, television and radio, there are professional speakers available that are technically strong and are highly qualitative. But usually they are expensive.

It is not only the quality of the sound that matters while going for a good speaker. In fact, besides other things, the cabinet is another thing that has to be of excellent quality. Moreover, the cabinet construction has to be good. If the material is low quality plastic or thin timbre in the rears then noise will be more from the cabinet, as they will come from the drivers. If the cabinet is to move plentiful air, it really has to be static and rigid.
