The basic errors when buying speakers

No matter how much or little money you have, you should not buy speakers in the form but pay attention to sound quality, especially when they are high-end audio devices. Below, we summarize some common mistakes.

1. Buy a slim, poorly designed speaker

Many people believe that when they have bought an LCD TV, they will add a set of speakers for “monumental”. These people often value form over quality speakers, so it is easy to find the kind of sound and cheap price. Normally, the low-end speakers have a sketchy design, the box is made of light material to save production and shipping costs. Meanwhile, the weight of the speakers determines quite a lot on the sound quality. Some people think that because they don’t have much money, they have to buy light speakers … pour sand into them. But this also needs to be carefully calculated, otherwise, the sound will lose accuracy.

2. Buy speakers with multiple radiators that look like a subwoofer

With the purchase of speakers with lots of passive radiators, just a driver that looks quite like a subwoofer, some people think they are buying more speakers for the money but that’s just adding a “fake” woofer. Think about it: How do you benefit from having a tiny woofer that hits more of the larger passive radiators through one vent? The answer is “no”. A vent, a large speaker cabinet, or a precisely tuned passive radiator will work well, but one that uses radiators to “makeup” to deceive buyers doesn’t do anything.

3. Forget not to bring the test disc

Some loudspeaker stores have discs available to listen to, but genuine stores usually have genuine discs. Meanwhile, more second-hand sets sold in sleazy shops lacked good discs for customers to listen to. Therefore, bring some great discs with music to match your taste for testing.

4. Buy a long slim speaker that thought it was a full-range speaker

Some stores advertise long, slender loudspeakers with many 4-inch drivers that show every frequency. However, it should be noted that they rarely have enough frequency range to reproduce the full range of hearing and cannot produce accurate bass. Furthermore, the 3-4 inch driver is too small for the woofer and too loud for the tweeter. Some manufacturers lack the credibility to do this because they want to “dump” the inventory drivers.

5. Buy speakers that are not of a reasonable height

If you buy a small one, it must be a “bookshelf” type, so the tweeter should be placed high so that the tweeter is level with the listener’s ears.

6. Remove the metal panel that covers the speaker

Many people believe that removing this panel will help the tweeter “speak” higher. It is a shield that protects the internal speaker from physical agents and has a role in the system that the manufacturer has implied in and should not interfere.

7. Place a metal post or cone on top of the cabinet to eliminate resonance

If the cabinet was not good in the first place, it wouldn’t be of much help. Therefore, if the driver is judged to suit your needs, it may be possible to consider carefully repacking the case later.
