Many people like the cinema quality audio but don’t want to go and visit the theaters. If this is true for you, then, as Mike Breams from Booths Electrical in Inverurie explains, you might want to upgrade your home audio setup to something that will offer you this cinema quality experience. When it comes to this, there is a newer device or product, that is capturing a lot of home audio enthusiasts’ attention. This device is the soundbar.
Soundbars are neat speakers that can be wireless and are used to improve the sound quality of your home audio setup. These can range in price from under $50 all the way up to $1000+ in several cases. What I’ve found is that there are several that are available for under $100 and provide a great experience.
There are many different types of soundbars out there. There are different sizes, which you want to keep in mind because you want it to be a great size compared to the size of your TV. You usually want the soundbar to be close to the same width as the TV’s base. It can be a little bit wider, depending on how you want the setup to look. If you are hanging the TV and the soundbar on the wall, then the soundbar can almost be any size because it won’t be right in front of the TV display on an entertainment center.
There’s also the composition of the soundbars. There’s some that come with several speakers, and then some that also come with external subwoofers. The external subwoofer setups generate more bass so they give a great audio experience while also providing some deep punching bass.
A regular soundbar without the subs can still be great, they just have the subs built in to the soundbar itself so they are all in one. This however, limits the size of the sub because it will have to fit in the soundbar box.
I’ve found that the external sub setup is the best and most ideal for any home audio setup. It sounds better and provides the best sounding experience for home audio. The only downside to this setup is that it can cost a little more in price. It’s definitely worth it though.
