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.

How to Place your Speakers to Maximize your Home Theater Experience

Computer speakers, home theater speakers, and surround sound systems all have a science in how to maximize the audio experience for the user. They involve knowing where to place speakers, in addition to how to use the different speaker channels. Even with the most expensive equipment available, if your speakers have not been properly configured for the room, they can sound cheap. Comparatively, if you set up a cheap pair of high quality speakers just right, you’d be surprised at the audio performance you can derive from them.

 

Imagine having a brand new high-definition TV setup with amazing picture quality, and all the accessories and gadgets you could want. So you sit down to watch a movie or a sports game or your favourite TV show and the sound is horrendous. Suddenly, no matter how good your flat-screen’s picture is, the experience is ruined. People give way more thought to what kind of TV they want and usually don’t give much to what speakers are preferable. Speakers are not a casual purchase. In many cases, they can make or break the home theater experience.

 

To know the right speaker placement for home theater audio, you must get to know the channels you’re working with. Most of us will be working with a simple two-channel stereo setup. In some cases, you’ll add a subwoofer for three channels. Additional channels can be used to create a 360-degree envelope of sound that sits around the listener. Multi-channel surround sound usually require an A/V receiver to amplify and distribute the sound signal as required. There is no maximum amount of home theater speakers required however the biggest mainstream home theater speaker collections are either 5.1 which is five speakers and a subwoofer, or 11.2 meaning eleven speakers with two subwoofers.

 

The subwoofer is the simplest speaker to place as it can be placed almost anywhere within the room and it should still deliver amazing low-frequency sound. Let’s say you’re working with a stereo two-channel audio speaker setup, sitting one on the left and one on the right is relatively easy to put together but there’s more to the puzzle. You want to ensure they are at listening height to the viewer, which is accomplishable using speaker mounts, in-wall speakers, or speaker stands. Also, angle the speakers inwards towards the listener, as opposed to facing outwards. Regarding larger surround sound home theater speaker systems, thankfully, a lot of those systems come with guides that show where to place speakers.

 

To maximize your home theater system, learning where to place your home theater speaker system is a must. Browse PrimeCables for the best deals on speaker systems and more!
