Whats In A Speaker The Inside Scoop On Professional Audio Quality-mentalist

.puters-and-Technology Selecting the right speakers is an important part of creating high quality audio. No amount of software or editing can replace a great speaker, because without the right audio equipment your audience will be unable to hear the depth of the audio quality. When selecting a loudspeaker, it is important to look for advanced audio features that will lead to pitch perfect sound. Speaker Technology and Considerations •Total Harmonic Distortion Most speakers are equipped with technology to reduce harmonic distortion – a measurement that calculates the total harmonic .ponents of a given audio relative to the fundamental frequency (the lowest frequency in repeating sound waves). Various electronics tend to add harmonic distortion to your audio file, which reduces sound quality. Most professionals look for speakers with a THD of under 1%, indicating a very low amount of distortion that occurs below the threshold of human hearing. •Nominal Impedance in Relation to A/V Equipment In order to achieve professional audio quality, you also need to .pare the impedance level of your speakers relative to your other a/v equipment. Impedance refers to the amount of electrical resistance your speaker receives (in ohms) from power and amp. The impedance rating alone is not too important for audio quality (although most of the advanced speaker technology uses a 4-ohm load or less), but your speakers’ impedance rating relative to your receiver does affect sound quality. You want the impedance rating of both your speakers and your receivers to be equal, otherwise your sound may be distorted. •Power and Sensitivity Speakers are equipped with their own power and sensitivity ratings, which refer to things like how much wattage a given speaker can handle and how loud the speaker will be (in decibels) relative to the amount of watts it receives. For power, you need both your nominal power (the amount of power your speaker can handle continuously without damage) and your peak power (the most watts your speaker can handle at any moment without damage) to be as high as your audio requires. Some of the more advanced speakers can handle anywhere from 1000 nominal/2000 peak or more. Professionals are a little lenient on sensitivity, but ultimately they are looking for efficient speakers that get the most out of the available wattage. Those looking for a louder sound with lower watts may need more sensitive speakers, but for many professionals sensitivity is based on personal preferences. Getting Professional Audio Quality from Your Speakers Audio technology has not necessarily changed much in recent decades, but there have been advancements in the quality and reliability of speaker drivers and their basic .ponents. That’s why professional audio equipment is no longer run under the mantra of "bigger equals better," and some of the highest quality audio equipment .es in smaller sizes. But when selecting your speakers, you should still consider the technical details and whether the sound equipment is going to provide the quality and professional sound that you need.
