Music in your home can make the world of a difference in creating the home atmosphere you desire. With technology continuing to grow and expand, figuring out what speakers would work best for you can be confusing, or at least daunting. This article is to help articulate what speakers work best for each of your rooms. This article should help end users understand their options when it comes to speakers, and possibly provide some pieces of information for installers that may be of value. If some of the terminologies of this article seem too complex, don’t worry! There are trained professionals on all of our products that can help guide you in this process. 



If you're looking to improve or create a home audio system, one of the best ways to start is by adding passive speakers. Passive speakers are those that don't have their own built-in amplifiers; they rely on an external amplifier or receiver to power them. This makes them more versatile than active speakers, which do have their own amp and thus require a specific type of setup. These speakers are so valuable to audio because of the customization options that can be made for your needs/space. Passive speakers can be installed internally in your walls and/or ceiling, or housed in cases for an external “display” installation. Installing internally is often a design choice for those who want great sound, but don’t want speakers being a design feature of the space, or need all the room in the space they can get! External speakers can be built in different finishes and designs, making it a cool feature of the room if you desire! Regardless of what type of passive speakers you prefer, passive speaker systems are of the highest quality and customization when it comes to adding great-sounding audio to your space. Whether it's a home theatre, bathroom, patio, pool, or whole home system; there are speakers designed specifically for your preference. 



There are a few things to consider when choosing passive speakers for your home. First, you'll need to decide what kind of sound you're going for. Are you looking for a powerful, bass-heavy sound? Or something more balanced? The size of your room will also play a role in determining which passive speakers are right for you; larger rooms will require more powerful speakers.


Another thing to consider is what materials make up your room. Rooms with carpet react differently to speakers than rooms with glass and hard flooring. Luckily, different speakers are made for these different situations.



Once you've decided on the type of sound you're going for and the size and design of your room, it's time to start shopping around. There are a variety of passive speakers on the market, from budget-friendly options to high-end models. It's important to listen to each speaker before making a purchase, as everyone's ears are different and what sounds good to one person might not sound as good to another.


If you're looking to improve your home audio setup, passive speakers are a great option. Just be sure to consider the size of your room and the type of sound you're going for when making your selection. With a little bit of research, you're sure to find the perfect passive speakers for your home. If you have questions, we're here to help! Get direct help at TruAudio.com
