Loudspeakers are an integral part of home entertainment today. From a small set of powered bookshelf speakers connected to your computer to a complete home theater speaker system in your living room, dynamic speaker technology has been with us for since its formative days at the end of the 1800s. Innovations in design, materials and acoustic science have shaped the quest to refine sound reproduction for over a century, and continue unabated.

So what do you need to get good sound from your home entertainment system? The overall quality of the experience, particularly what reaches your ears, is the sum of its parts. Having a good source, proper amplification and efficient connections are all elements of this equation, but ultimately your speakers will deliver that symphony or action film to the audience.

Sound quality is subjective

How can sound quality be defined? Every speaker manufacturer claims their products perform exceptionally well; no one would buy them if they boasted about their mediocrity. But you can spend $100 or $10,000 for a pair of speakers, so obviously there will be a distinct difference between them. Do you buy speakers with horn drivers or titanium tweeters or electrostatic ribbons? Should you spend thousands on enclosures that become the aesthetic centerpiece of your home, or are the ordinary black vinyl towers good enough?

The bottom line

At the end of the day, a speaker that sounds good to YOU is a good speaker. Every person’s expectations are different. Certain types of acoustics appeal to some and not others. Perhaps you prefer the sound of a horn loaded speaker that emulates that live concert environment more effectively. But if you listen to classical music, different drivers may deliver a more desirable performance. Maybe movies are your thing, and the most efficient speakers with lots of bass are preferable. Whatever the case, when you sit down and listen to whatever it is you listen to and say “WOW, that sounds awesome!” you know you have the right speakers.
