How to Perfectly Position Your Speakers

How to Perfectly Position Your Speakers

Some people may buy a good speaker, but always think that the sound quality is not good enough, there is a way to improve the sound of any speaker: it's all about placement.

Musicians and producers who put in months of effort to create their work deserve the best speaker experience possible, and music fans want every beat to sound as good as the artist expects it to.

The following assumes you're sitting at your desk in front of the speakers with plenty of space to experiment. Even if you don't, you'll learn something useful.

Surround Sound

If you have surround sound speakers, determine where you will be listening and place the center channel directly in front of you, and place the speakers with the sides. Each speaker should be the same distance from your listening position, forming a circle; if done correctly, you should hear stereo surround sound!

Speaker Height

Adjust the height of your speaker stand and position your speakers so that the tweeters are about the same height as your ears. (Tweeters are the small speakers' drivers. They are in charge of the high-frequency treble range.) If you want your music to stand out,point it at your ears.

Room Arrangement

Check that there are no obstructions between the speakers and the ears. Aim for symmetry in the placement of the speaker and furniture. The goal is to reduce sound reflections. If your room is rectangular, the speakers should ideally face the length of the room, so put your desk against the shortest wall.

Space Away From The Wall

Pull the speakers away from the wall if you have a lot of space to work with. Ideally, you should avoid an area of 2-3 feet. If you have a small room, try to leave as much space between the wall and the speakers as possible - up to 1m - and avoid placing them too close to the wall, as the bass will be less effective. This will minimize sound reflections, which can negatively affect playback clarity.

Isolate Your Turntable

You should always isolate your turntable from speaker vibration. The turntable should be placed on a different surface than the speakers.

It's not always easy to put each step into action, and getting great sound from your speakers takes a lot of trial and error. Finding the best position will go a long way toward making your vinyl sound more three-dimensional!
