How To Fix Speaker Static

Sep 04, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Uncategorized

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.

Collaboration in the Conference Room

Nov 06, 2015

The ways in which businesses and clients communicate have taken on a whole new shape in the last couple of years. With widespread innovations in technology, companies are now able to communicate in real-time with people across the globe. That in mind, it’s vital to improve the audio and visual components in your conference room.

Web Conferencing

When you are doing business across the country or across the globe, it’s difficult to get everyone in the same physical location. Thanks to web conferencing, we now have the ability to set up meetings any time of day as if everyone was face-to-face. But you can’t host a successful web conference without the right equipment. If you don’t have the capabilities of multi-camera switching, picture-in-picture or a content delivery system you’re missing out.

Audio

A few years back, a webcam with a pinhole mic was enough to get the job done. However, technology has evolved since then and audio transmission is much clearer. But this means you’ll need a higher quality mic. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that for you!

Video

If you have web conferencing software and a decent mic, it won’t do you much good without a quality camera. Failing to use an HD camera with proper background lighting can make your company look unprofessional and outdated.

At CitiView Audio Visual we understand that meetings pop up and presenters’ needs change on-site. Our staff will respond quickly and professionally so give us a call at 212-632-5196.

Bose Makes Push To Enter Kitchen Appliance Market

Jul 20, 2015

You’ve probably heard the name associated with high-quality speakers and audio equipment, but kitchen appliances? That’s right, the Bose Corporation seems to be interested in expanding their line of products to include cooktops. What does that mean for the audio giant? See below to learn more:

Bose has been a top name when it comes to the audio speaker and sound system industry for years, but who would have thought they could enter the kitchen appliances industry? They have recently filed a patent application for a “cooktop power control system” that has the ability to change the power of the burners based on desired and actual cookware temperatures.

If they do in fact create an induction cooktop, they will have to face competition from top appliance manufacturers like Samsung and GE.

We’d like to see the outcome of their desire to enter the kitchen appliance industry, but for now we’ll continue to focus on their quality sound systems and speakers.

With state of the art equipment and technology, we provide the crystal clear sound you have been searching for. So when you’re looking for audio equipment for your next event, call on the experts at CitiView Audio Visual!

I really like how you recommended to try a new set of cables because they can sometimes cause interference. I also like how you said to check if we are able to reset the speakers in order for it to reconnect. I really love to DJ for a hobby and I hate when my speakers begin to be static. Thanks for sharing this article because I will have to try out new cables.

Having an audio visual system would really make movie nights a lot more exciting. Setting up cables to connect your speakers is smart to get them to work properly. I would agree that making sure that you set your audio system up correctly can really make a huge difference.
