All About Stereo Equipment
The stereo speaker manufacturers make all different kinds of designs, prices, and styles etc. They make them for two types of people. The ones that want the speakers to be accurate and sound good, and those who want the speakers to look cool and nice to show them off.
When buying speakers you should read reviews in audio magazines or reviews on the internet about the type and brand of speakers you are looking for. You should also check for the audio cables. They can be just a few dollars or they could be up to a hundred or even a thousand dollars, so make sure you check that out before you get hooked into having to buy a specific type of cable.
If you are looking for a good sound on the bass end you should get a sealed box speaker, otherwise known as an acoustic suspension. And if you want a big bass sound, look for bass reflex speakers. When looking for a nice speaker you shouldn't let its size or its look influence you too much, concentrate on how good it sounds.
If you want to buy some cheap speakers, go to a consumer electronics store. But if you want a high-fidelity speaker you should go to a place that specializes in speakers. If the speaker is out of your price range, don't even listen to it. Once you listen to it, and then look at a lower quality speaker, you may end up being disappointed by the sound quality.
If you are listening to different speakers comparing them, you should always listen to them at the same volume. If you like the way it sounds in the store, make sure there is a way that you return it if you don't like the way it sounds at home or in your car. Different spaces produce different sounds and the way it sounded in the store may be different than how it sounds in your house. Always get something that you are happy with. Don't buy something because the salesperson says it's the best and you don't really agree. It is your money, so get something that you will like.
