Many people who buy home theatre speakers either want to accent their television viewing experience, or are musically inclined and want to transform their experience of listening to their favorite artists through high-quality sound machines. Before you make a decision on which home theatre speaker to buy you need to identify which of these two categories you belong to. Once you have done this you can move on to choosing speakers depending on your particular need – television viewing or listening to music.
You might raise a question here. What if someone is both a television and music buff? Surely there have to be sound systems to match their audio requirements. Those who enjoy both television and music can try to mix and match stereo systems to have the best of both the worlds.
What’s The Difference between Sounds in Movies and Music?
Movies tend to include a vast array of sounds. Dialog is important and is always given its due with background score receding when they are spoken. For effects, deep-bass sounds are used as a matter of routine. A lot of the dramatic appeal of movies is carried through its sounds – remember Hitchcock’s use of silence before all hell breaks loose in Psycho or Birds?
Music on the other hand is not a medium that goes as far as movies do to grab and hold people’s attention. Effects of deep-bass can be almost non-existent. Music on speakers is all about accurate reproduction of pitch and tone.
What Kind of Speakers Will Be Best for Television Viewing?
If your primary purpose with a home theatre system is watching sports events, movies, or shows on television you need to take a look around your room first. If you have a big room for your home theatre – with an area-spread of 800 square feet or more – you should think of getting yourself a mega-size, full-blast, and range speakers with audio separates. Couple them with a really powerful amplifier and watching movies at home will never be the same again.
On the other hand, if your room is not big – say around 250 square feet – you definitely don’t need the earth-shattering power of the previously mentioned speakers. A small subwoofer with a quality receiver should prove adequate for your needs.
Speakers for Music Buffs
Music lovers can invest in tower speakers made out of speakers that offer full-range volume capabilities. The front speakers play a critical role in producing high-quality music. Those interested in music should spend most of the money from their budget into the front speakers.
Speakers can make movies come alive. If its music that stirs you and keeps you ticking, high-quality speakers can accurately reproduce the timbre and pitch of your favorite musicians. In either case we have the speakers to match all your requirements.
