Having a good set of speakers is just one part of the equation when it comes to a good audio set-up. With surround sound in particular your speakers need to be in the perfect location. Moving them even a foot or two can greatly impair the experience for your home cinema, gaming or music system. This is particularly true in oddly shaped rooms where the acoustics must be calculated carefully to offer the best sound experience.
To ensure that your speakers sound clear and crisp, and remain in position, it is a good idea to put them on stands or brackets. These brackets should be secure themselves, and made specifically for the speakers. If you put your speakers on a bracket that is loose or flimsy, it could vibrate and impair the quality of the sound.
We sell a selection of wall mountable brackets, ceiling brackets and speaker stands designed to suit most types of speaker. Using speaker stands, you can position the speakers at ear height, which gives them better focus and offers a better stereo experience. Raising the speakers and putting them on a solid stand helps to produce tighter and more controlled bass, and the spikes on the stand will reduce vibration, ensuring that the sound is as crisp as possible. Ceiling brackets make it easy to position satellite speakers in exactly the right place and at exactly the right angle, and help to decouple the speaker from the ceiling, again making the sound crisper and cleaner.
