If you plan to distribute music throughout your home, you will face several challenges. You probably do not want to start drilling holes in the walls to add speaker locks. I will watch wireless speakers as an alternative to wireless speakers for full house audio distribution.
Whether you add music at work or at home, there are many benefits that music offers. Music can provide relaxation at home. It can also help improve the atmosphere at work. If you do not have a prewired house for audio, you will face a big challenge. Installing the wiring to all your rooms can be a big problem.
For outdoor applications, you should choose a waterproof speaker, which is also protected from prolonged exposure to the sun. Outdoor speakers have additional elements exposed to the rain. These include the wiring as well as the connectors and amplifier. Use the same caution to protect these elements against rain.
Mini amplifiers distributed with each speaker are an interesting option to investigate. These amplifiers are located close to each speaker. Thus, long speaker cable runs are eliminated along with the issue of feeding the mice into the speaker cables. Additionally, individual amplifiers allow to change the volume of each speaker on the spot.
Wireless speakers eliminate the long speaker cable. Instead, music is sent via a wireless signal to each speaker. The amplifier is already integrated into the speaker itself. The transmitter base is connected to the audio source and sends the music wirelessly to one or more speakers. Ideally, the speakers can be paired with the transmitter that allows you to set different sound zones in your home or outdoors.
Wireless speakers are available in two varieties. 900 MHz type speakers use FM type transmission and are quite prone to noise and interference. On the other hand, wireless speakers that use digital transmission offer crystal clear transmission and superior reliability. Be sure to look at the transmitter's work area when selecting wireless speakers. The range must be large enough to cover the entire area where you want to set up speakers. Also note that the range is also affected by walls and obstacles. Thus, the current range may vary from the area specified by the manufacturer. To ensure reliable operation, the wireless protocol should be robust against radio interference from other wireless devices that may be in the area using an error correction protocol.
When installing wireless speakers outdoors, the integrated amplifier should have a relatively high power. This is because there is usually a lot of background noise that comes from traffic, wind and other sources. The sound also releases freely, thus achieving the same sound pressure level outdoors challenging outdoors than indoors. If you set up outdoor speakers, you should choose speakers in a waterproof case. This will ensure that the speaker can endure the elements. Some wireless protocols such as Bluetooth compress the wireless signal. Compression is made to reduce data rate and thus bandwidth. This is because Bluetooth and some other protocols do not support uncompressed HiFi audio. Audio compression reduces sound sensitivity.
Typically, the more the sound compresses, the lower the sound quality. In addition, compression will introduce some latency during the transfer. Low latency is critical for video programs to keep the audio synchronized with the video.
When choosing speakers, it is best to give them a listening test. The speakers sound depends on the environment. Therefore, it is best to compare multiple models side by side in an environment similar to the location where you plan to configure the speakers. Following the above guidelines, you should be able to select and install appropriate speakers.
