Will a Soundbar Help with your Audio Quality?
Posted on October 09 2018
So, you’ve bought yourself a brand-new smart TV, only to discover that the sound quality is somewhat lacking. So, what’s the best option for you? We have the ideal solution: A soundbar.
A soundbar is the easiest and, in most cases, the most cost-effective way to give your TV a much-needed audio boost. With the market offering dozens of models for sale, researching what it is you are after is time well spent. The best sound bars aren’t the most expensive, especially if your requirements are modest and you only want to give your sound a boost.
Why Buy a Soundbar?
A loudspeaker is essentially a box that creates sound by moving air around, often by vibrating in a paper or plastic cone in a box. Back when we used bulky televisions, this wasn’t such an issue. However, since the introduction of flat screen televisions, a loudspeaker simply isn’t an option. As a result, audio quality has somewhat declined. This is where the soundbar comes in.
Soundbars are long bars that often contain two or more small loudspeakers (tweeters) to provide treble and mid-range. They work with a subwoofer that comes in a separate box and provides bass. Low frequency sounds tend to not be directional, so the placement is not as important.
Soundbases are large and flat so that you can stand your television on them. In most cases, they will have two or three small speakers at the front, with one or two woofers pointing downwards. Soundbases tend to be neat and tidy and only require one main’s plug.
Of course, many people refer to a soundbar and a soundbase as the same thing these days. However, you will probably be much happier if you were to opt for a soundbar. Just remember that when you do choose to purchase a soundbar, you need to think about where you will place the subwoofer. Like our products, most manufacturers will provide their soundbars with volume controls. So, if it’s too quiet, you can turn it up, and if it’s too loud, you can turn it down!
What are you Looking For?
There are many things you will need to consider before purchasing your soundbar. The first thing to think about is the cost. Though you probably don’t want to spend a fortune, it can be a waste of money to spend less on a product that will not perform how you want and is likely to stop working after a short while.
Think about what you want from your purchase and determine what can give you the best value for money. Have a look around to see what’s available and compare product specifications to select your top choices. The great thing about buying a soundbar these days is that they are more affordable than when they were first on the market. What’s more, the quality has only gotten better!
