6 Tips on How to Set Up Multimedia Speakers and a Subwoofer like a Professional

A new set of multimedia speakers and subwoofer are easy to set up in a configuration pleasing to the eye. Will it be as pleasing to the ear however – sometimes, not so much. Here are some quick and easy tips on how to set up your media speakers and subwoofer the right way!

1 – Take stock of what you’re working with.

An empty room is very easy to set up speakers in. A room already cluttered with furniture is going to be more difficult. Sound waves are going to be bouncing off of unexpected places, and absorbed or reflected with what they come into contact with. High and mid-range frequencies are notably absorbed by heavy furnishings, upholstered couches, and more. Note what you’re open to re-arranging if it gets you better sound.

2 – Choosing your right speaker for your room.

If you haven’t yet bought multimedia speakers and your subwoofer, for small spaces, you may want to re-consider. Sometimes, a Bluetooth soundbar is all you’ll need to get great sound from your home theater system or computer. Just remember, bigger isn’t always better.

3 – Never place a speaker in a corner.

A speaker in a corner increases the ‘boom effect’. This is when the bass is overloaded because of a lack of spherical resonance. Essentially, when a speaker faces outwards from a corner, the sound waves end up just bouncing off the walls next to the speaker. Ideally, place the back of a speaker a foot away from any wall to help create distance and avoid boundary loading.

4 – EQ customization.

If you have manual control over your EQ, adjust it to make it the type of sound you want. Depending on if you’re watching sports, watching a movie or TV, or listening to music, you may prefer to set up different EQ settings. Though this can be tricky, you may have some presets to play with which can help.

5 – Setting up your subwoofer.

Subwoofers provide extra bass you won’t get from your regular multimedia speakers. This will protect your multimedia speakers by lessening the bass strain on them while widening your bass sound overall. Consider placing your subwoofer closer to the wall than you would for other speakers. This will help emphasize the bass effect and help with the ‘rumble’ effect.

6 – Calibrate and tweak.

Play with your speakers. Calibrate them, tweak them, and get them just right. ‘Good audio’ is subjective. If you don’t trust yourself to get them to your liking, there’s plenty of hardware and software which can be used to calibrate audio. You can even download smartphone apps to get it done.

A Complete Guide to Setting Up Bluetooth Earbuds on your Devices

Bluetooth earbuds are acclaimed for having sufficient battery life, their portability, simplicity in charging, and strong Bluetooth range. They have been on the rise since 2016 and have since been having a cultural moment.

No matter whether you’re buying them as AirPods from Apple or they’re coming from another manufacturer, Bluetooth earbuds are wireless headphones capable of being used with any device capable of Bluetooth connection. They can be connected to your smartphone, your tablet, or your computer – as long as it’s equipped with Bluetooth.

 

To set up your Bluetooth earbuds on your devices, it’s a very simple process. The first thing you need to do is charge your wireless headphones. They’ll likely need to be plugged in via USB connection and they may take a few hours or more to get to a full charge.

 

The next step is to turn on your device’s Bluetooth capability. After they’ve been charged, turn on your Bluetooth earbuds and hold them close to your device. Go to your device and scan for Bluetooth connections. You should see your wireless headphones come up. If they don’t come up, scan again. As this is a new connection, it may take two or three scans for your device to locate your earbuds.

 

After they come up on your device, press ‘pair’. Within seconds, you’ll be connected and that’s that! If you’re using a smartphone, most smartphones are equipped to instantly connect to your Bluetooth earbuds as long as it’s on. This should make it easier to connect in the future.

 

There are several great features to consider when buying Bluetooth earbuds. The most obvious is no wires. Beyond this though, you can expect a long battery life, a sufficient Bluetooth range, some include a microphone, one-tap setup on most devices, and the ability to use your earbuds on calls as well as to consume media and listen to music without changing anything.

 

Now, there are Bluetooth earbuds which are completely wire-free. These are the most common model depicted in advertisements, in movies and TV shows, and elsewhere. There are also Bluetooth earbuds connected by a wire which generally hangs over the back of your neck.

 

Although some of the features may change depending on the manufacturer and type of Bluetooth earbuds, the connection method is always going to be the same. Charge it, turn it on, activate your device’s Bluetooth, and pair it. It’s that simple. Browse a wide range of wireless Bluetooth earbuds from Canada’s own PrimeCables and choose from wire-free or wired connections.

What are the Best Computer Speakers to use for Home Theater Systems – read here!

For condos in Canada, in small basement spaces, and multi-purpose living rooms, some consumers choose to manufacture their home theater experience using a combination of traditional and more advanced tech elements. For example, computer speakers sometimes double as home theater speakers.

 

If you’re looking to turn up the volume and get home theater-level sound though, not every pair of desktop speakers is going to do the trick. If anything, most won’t. That makes it important to find speakers you know are going to be able to deliver in performance.

 

PrimeCables is a top Canadian eCommerce brand selling home theater speaker systems, surround sound, and computer speakers. The thin, tinny sound of computer speakers is not something any consumer wants to hear when trying to catch their favourite TV show or movie. Thankfully, there are some inexpensive computer speakers available through PrimeCables that’ll provide a huge audio upgrade at big discounts.

 

Choose from powerful bookshelf stereo speaker pairs, full surround sound options, or wireless Bluetooth soundbars that can also make for a great home music system. None of these options cost an arm and a leg. Browse today if you don’t believe us.

If you’re just looking for a basic set of two speakers, you’re not alone. A set of two is easily the most recommended option for computer-home theater combinations.

Thankfully, when you browse with PrimeCables, you have the opportunity to customize and select only what you need.

There are plenty of other advantages to speaker wire as well, such as being able to choose different lengths as needed. For any Canadian homeowner tackling their own home theater setup, measure the distance between speakers, tack on a little bit of extra length, and then, cut speaker wire as appropriate. There won’t be any cable loose on the floor and by being able to use different types of wire, it’s possible to support the exact power rating of your sound system.
