In-ceiling and in-wall speakers are an excellent way to save space and remove clutter. With no exposed wires, there is nothing to trip over or to ruin the aesthetics of your room. They can be positioned anywhere, allowing you to optimize the acoustics within the room. Here are a few things you should know about these next-generation speaker systems.
In-ceiling speakers are generally sold in pairs, allowing you to set them up for left and right sound. In a larger room, four smaller speakers provide better balance than two larger speakers. For very big rooms, six speakers may be needed for optimal sound quality.
For best stereo separation, position the speakers at least 6 feet apart. If this is not possible, consider using a single stereo ceiling speaker in the middle of the room. Odd-shaped rooms benefit from speakers with adjustable tweeters, which allow you to choose the direction of sound.
While in-ceiling speakers are an excellent choice for ambient music, nothing beats the true surround sound experience of in-wall speakers. Rather than coming from above, the sound will envelop you as you watch TV or movies.
Typical in-wall speaker systems have at least 5 speakers (2 in the front, 2 in the back, and 1 in the center) plus a subwoofer. Many systems add 2 additional side speakers, and some even add another subwoofer.
The center speaker should be mounted horizontally on the front wall, just below the screen. It is responsible for dialogue, so this position provides balanced audio for all seats.
The front speakers should be installed vertically on either side of the TV. They are responsible for the sounds that seem to come from in front of you.
The rear speakers (and side speakers in a 7 speaker system) create a wraparound effect. Everyone, regardless of seat placement, will feel that they are in the middle of the action. The biggest advantage of an in-wall speaker system over a more traditional surround sound system, is the ability to precisely position each speaker without taking up space in the room.
For the ultimate hidden surround sound system, hide the subwoofer(s) in the front and back walls or in the floor. These speakers are essential to provide deep bass sounds, but traditional subwoofers are big and bulky, and take up a good bit of real estate.
Every room is different, and a custom speaker installation is the best way to maximize the sound in your unique space. At Dallas Installer Pro, we will ensure that your in-ceiling or in-wall speakers are optimized to make the most of your room’s acoustics.
