Hidden vs. Visible Speakers: Which is Better?
When you turn on your favorite tunes or party playlists, you want to feel completely immersed in the music. You can only achieve this ultimate listening experience in your Buckhead, GA home with quality, high-end audio.
To create an ideal surround sound system, you must strategically place your speakers in the right spots. But what’s better for you – speakers that blend in seamlessly or less concealed ones that go with your décor?
We’ve dived into the advantages of either option, so you can decide which is best for your home. Read on below to see which speaker style is for you!
You might fear that “seen” speakers will clash with your existing decor or stick out like a sore thumb in the room.
But visible speakers these days are designed to be appealing additions to your room’s layout and style.
There are two main styles from which to choose. If you’re looking for a subtle design, small cabinet or bookshelf speakers can stay tucked away, not intruding on the room’s aesthetics. The smaller, bookshelf ones can come in a variety of colors and are easier to hide, even if they are not completely invisible. These are a great option when you want quality audio, but still want to keep most of your design the same.
The second style is the more visual, prominent speakers. These speakers are meant to be seen.
They’re essentially works of art, performance pieces that should never be hidden away. Your family and guests can admire them while listening to the high-performance audio they emit.
Visible speakers also have a slight advantage audio-wise: clearer and crisper sound. You can up your audio quality and still have speakers that blend in nicely.
With invisible speakers, you don’t have to compromise your style for high-end audio. You don’t have to worry about audio equipment taking up space and ruining your décor. These speakers create a flawlessly seamless and blended-in look.
While visible speakers have marginally better sound quality, you needn’t fret that they won’t deliver high performance.
Today’s tech ensures that in-wall or in-ceiling speakers won’t have muffled sound and that they will acclimate to the acoustics. There are even acoustically transparent coverings for the speakers, so the sound will not be affected.
Which speaker you choose really depends on your décor style and the space you want to dedicate to enjoying music.
