The sound quality and performance of a sound system dictate the overall experience in our home. Since speakers are the main source of sound, we need to give some attention on how to get the ones that fit our home and musical taste. If you are looking for the ultimate home experience, bookshelf speakers can make a difference in our home theater system.
What are they?
Bookshelf speakers are small speakers that can be located on a bookshelf and are usually housed in small and compressed enclosures. They also come in different sizes and finish to match your home furniture and color taste.
Where can you place them?
They can be placed in small and tight places such as bookshelf and stands. Although bookshelf speakers can be placed anywhere in your home, it is recommended to place them in an open space rather than hidden inside parts of furniture.
Advantages and disadvantages:
Unlike floor speakers, the main benefit of having bookshelf speakers is the price and size. Because of their small size, you can fit them in places where floor speakers can’t fit in. You can mount them anywhere (shelves, walls and stands and cabinets). Moreover, the price of these fit any budget and don’t cost as much as the other home speakers. However, it can be argued that these speakers have a limited power handling and efficiency because of their small enclosure and drivers’ size. If you are thinking to buy bookshelf speakers, a subwoofer might be needed to add some extra bass to your sound.
