What Are Ceiling Speakers Colorado Springs?

For starters, you can buy ceiling speakers either for your wall or for your ceiling. The way they work is the exact same. They’re like any other kind of speaker, but without a housing. Instead, you cut away either a part of the wall or the ceiling and have them there.

Why buy ceiling speakers? Let’s take a look.

  • They free up room in your home. Having a surround sound system can take up quite a bit of room, in between the sound bars, big speakers, small rear speakers and more.
  • And because there are plenty of high quality speakers available, you aren’t compromising on the actual sound system either. Ceiling speakers can be exceptionally high quality. Or, if you’re on a budget, you can find cheap ones too.
  • Not only that, but you avoid the need for tangles of wires all around the room. The more speakers you need, the more wires you have. This means having to buy cable tidies, or worse yet, run them through the wall. If you’re going to run them through the wall, just have ceiling speakers instead!

So, if you’re completely sold on ceiling speakers Colorado Springs, how many do you need?

How Many Ceiling Speakers Do I Need?

How long is a piece of string? You can have as many as you want, although after a certain point you do experience diminishing returns! These speakers usually come in pairs. If your TV has decent speakers or a sound bar, that means you don’t need so many. One on each side in the middle of the room, and two behind you would give high quality surround sound. But if you wanted, you could have two ceiling speakers, and ‘regular’ speakers in front and behind you. Ultimately, it’s all up to you and your budget.

Ceiling Speakers and Surround Sound

Ceiling speakers are the best way of achieving surround sound, without the need for lots of visible wires, lots of tiny speakers, and lots of effort. And because they’re installed directly, you can set them up for optimal sound, which will stay optimal for however long you use it. The principle of surround sound is in the name: it’s about having noise coming at you from the side, from behind, from the front, and even from above! The point is to make you feel like you’re really experiencing the movie. It’s the perfect complement to a 3D movie, because the sound is in 3D too.

Ceiling speakers help you achieve that. With ceiling speakers above and on each side of where you’re sitting, you’re creating that 3D sound (coupled with the speakers in front of you).

Do I Need Anything Else?

You most definitely do. If you’re installing a top quality sound system, you’re going to need top quality cable. If you wanted to scrimp and save on wiring, you’re welcome to, but you’re shooting yourself in the foot. Essentially, the longer the wire is, the more the sound degrades. This isn’t likely to affect you—it’s more to do with bigger rooms, like actual cinemas! But you’ll still need either two-core or four-core speaker cables.

Besides that, you also need ceiling speaker hoods. They’re big fabric hoods designed to fit around the speaker. They look almost like a cat bed! The point is that they stop noise from echoing around in the wall or ceiling cavity. This improves the sound quality of your ceiling speaker system. But even more importantly, it stops noise from spreading around the house. Plus, if you have an upstairs neighbor, it stops them from being able to hear whatever it is you’re listening to.

Can You Install Ceiling Speakers Yourself?

If you’re thinking of installing ceiling speakers yourself, you’ll need to be able to gain access either behind the wall or above the ceiling. You’ll then need to run the wire through to the TV or home cinema setup—if you do want ceiling speakers that use wires, that is. You can get Bluetooth speakers, although these are a little more expensive.

However, no matter what kind of ceiling speaker you buy, you’re going to need to power it. So your choices, really, are between a lot of wires and even more wires! All of this is to say that it’s perfectly possible for you to install them yourself, but it’s going to be a lot of hassle. If you’d prefer, we can do it all for you.
