How To Get Better Sound From Your Speakers

Jul 14, 2015

When it comes to listening to your favorite song, there’s nothing worse than having crappy speakers or headphones. While you can spend hundreds of dollars on top-of-the-line equipment, there are a few solutions that won’t cost you a penny. Say goodbye to the days of muffled, distorted sound.

  1. Get Closer: the closer you get to your speakers, the better they will sound. Why? It minimizes the destructive effects of room reflections and tunes out some of the background noise.
  2. Change the Volume: if your speakers or headphones can handle music at high volume, try it out. Sometimes, playing music louder will make it sound better but make sure not to listen at high volume for more than 30 minutes at a time.
  3. Position the Speakers: did you know that positioning speakers with their tweeters at or very close to ear-level can make the audio sound better? If you’re setting up for an event, try to position the speakers so they will be close to the audience’s ear level.

When it comes to audio solutions in the NYC area, there’s nobody better than CitiView Audio Visual. Give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook!

How To Fix Speaker Static

Sep 04, 2015

Picture this: you purchase a new set of speakers and are eager to try them out so you turn them on and you hear static. If you praise sound quality like we do, there’s no worse feeling than hearing fuzzy or cloudy sound. How can you fix this problem? See below for a few solutions:

  1. You may be hearing a ground loop caused by another component in the room. Try the speakers in another room along with your A/V receiver/amplifier and see if the problem persists.
  2. Try a new set of cables. Sometimes cables that aren’t properly shielded can cause interference.
  3. Invest in a power conditioner that offers isolation and surge protection.
  4. Connect the speakers themselves into the main L/R outputs of the receiver, if they sound fine you know it’s not a problem with the speakers.
  5. Check to make sure no wires are running across another electrical cord, metal duct or any other piece of equipment.

Still hearing static? Contact the experts at CitiView Audio Visual, we may be able to help you out. And if you’re looking for sound equipment for you next event, make sure to call us at 212-632-5196.

The Bright Future of Projectors

Jul 24, 2015

The days of traditional projector lamps are just about over. Lasers are making their way into the machines and bringing lots of benefits with them. See below to learn more about the future of projectors:

Not only do lasers provide the biggest and best images you can see, they last longer than traditional lamps, won’t break or blow out as easily and offer an almost instant on/off. Not to mention, they’re much more efficient.

What can you expect? Laser projectors won’t be much different than what you’re used to now – they’ll create light and then use the light to manipulate an image on the screen. The major difference is what is creating the light.

Just like most technology, lasers are expensive because they are new to the market. We are excited to see where the future takes us and we hope to see the prices come down soon.

Need a projector or screen for your next event? Contact CitiView Audio Visual today and ask about our rental services!
