Did you know you could improve your speakers’ bass performance with this simple trick?
Sometimes tweaking a small detail can drastically improve your listening experience. Since some of our speakers ship with a subwoofer pointing at the opposite side of the mid range, we thought it would be a great idea for you to learn more about how to maximize the performance of the bass with a simple trick.
So where to start?
First of all, let’s understand what a subwoofer actually is and what it does. Well, to describe it in a very simple way, the subwoofer is where most of the low frequencies (bass sounds) come from. It is that part of the speaker that makes the “Boom Boom” sound louder and bolder, and generates the strongest vibrations, the ones that make your coffee table shake and your neighbors complain when the music is too loud. In our products, the subwoofer is the products’ largest speaker and is usually located on the back of the device.
So what is the trick?
Well, it will neither please your coffee table or your neighbour when the music is too loud, but you will have a chance to experience more lower frequencies at lower volumes. Basically, this means that you will be able to hear some of the instruments better and more distinctly when played at lower frequencies.
The trick to getting a better listening experience all comes down to where you place the product. In order to hear more bass, you should place the back of the speaker close to a wall, or in a corner. In this way, using wave reflection you will be able to have a better sound experience.
