How to correctly place the speakers

  Today we introduced the correct placement of 2.0-channel, 2.1-channel and 5.1-channel speakers. So that everyone can hear a better voice. In fact, there are many ways to put these speakers, we also recommend you to try more. Hearing is a very subjective feeling. I think what sounds good may be what you find bad, so there is no right or wrong in the absolute sense. Only by trying more can you get a better hearing. Here are some of the methods I summarized.


  Nowadays, the penetration rate of desktop active speakers is very high. Whether it is a 2.0, 2.1 or 5.1 channel audio system, I believe everyone must be familiar with it. Speakers have become the most intimate family companions for computers, TVs, and mobile phones. Considering that the housing area of ​​residents in today’s first-tier cities is generally small. A bedroom is about 10 square meters, plus the standard 2.6-meter clear height, which requires a reasonable use of space. This also makes the easy-to-place desktop active speakers become people’s first choice.


  At the same time, young people in this era have higher and higher requirements for sound quality. Not only are they able to speak out, but they are also more particular about brands and functions. Not only the sound of the speakers should be good, the brand should be high-end, and the choice of sound source equipment should also be more professional.

  Of course, enthusiasts are still in the minority, and not everyone can afford the expensive equipment. Ordinary users currently use a computer with desktop speakers to listen to songs at home. And with the improvement of living standards and users’ pursuit of sound quality, people are willing to spend more money to buy better speakers. However, everyone often overlooks a problem-space placement.

  Desktop speaker systems, most of them choose 2.0 channel or 2.1 channel speakers. Because of their small size, they are especially suitable for use in the room. The distance between the left and right speakers can be adjusted between 1.2 meters and 3.6 meters according to the size of the room, and the distance between the speakers and the side wall should not be less than 0.3 meters. Generally, the distance between the speaker and the floor and ceiling should be more than 0.45 meters. If the distance is too small, the response of the low frequency part will be enhanced. Never pile speakers together. When a person sits in front of a table, the three-dimensional sound is basically produced by the spatial distance between the left and right sides. If piled together, the sound heard is very monotonous.

  How to put the 2.0 channel speakers?

  Let’s start with 2.0 channel speakers. The first consideration for its placement is the distance, that is, the distance between the speaker and the wall, the distance between the left and right boxes, and the distance between people and the speakers. First, let’s talk about the distance between the speaker and the wall. At present, most of the 2.0 channel speakers on the market have rear-mounted inverted holes. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep the distance between the speaker and the back wall and side wall between 15CM-30CM to ensure the expansion of low-frequency sound waves when the speaker is working. Broaden the low-frequency dive and sense of volume, so as to make the sound sound fuller. Do not place the speakers close to the wall, as this will have a negative impact on the low frequency and sound field.

  How to put 2.1 channel speakers?

  Regarding 2.1 speakers, we can simply understand it as adding a subwoofer to the 2.0 speakers. People who often watch movies and play games at home must be familiar with the subwoofer. Only with it can we get the surging low frequency and the hearty audio-visual game experience. However, in real life, we often see that many users put the subwoofer on the desktop. Although the subwoofer itself has no directivity, it still cannot avoid resonance at high volume, making the bass become muddy.
