2023 In Ceiling Speaker Buying Guide, Recommended Audio Brands

There are many types of speakers, and the price span is also very large, ranging from smart speakers worth tens of dollars to millions of audiophiles. The span is evident.

Many people don’t know much about speakers, and even less about ceiling speakers. Therefore, I will tell you how to choose the category of ceiling speakers, just to help you choose the speakers that suit you.

1 Application scenarios of ceiling speakers
Since there are so many types of speakers on the market, before we buy speakers, we must first figure out where your needs are and in what scenarios.
For example: Do you want to pick up the microphone? Home or business? Listen to music or watch a movie? Prefer low frequency or high frequency? etc.

If you need it in the living room or bedroom, and you need a smart linkage air-conditioning TV, then a smart speaker is more suitable.
If you have a small space and a small scene, occasionally camping and picnics, and have take-out needs, then it is best to use a multimedia speaker.
If you are watching movies at home and want to turn your home into a personal theater, then home audio and video can make you feel immersive.
This time we are talking about ceiling speakers, so what kind of scenes are ceiling speakers suitable for?

a. The most commonly used scene is actually applied to commercial space.
Because of commercial space, the pursuit is to have uniform sound and high-fidelity sound quality. Whether it is a coffee shop, milk tea shop, restaurant, clothing store, or even a gym, club, bar, beauty salon, etc., simply put, it is a variety of For shops, ceiling speakers are the best choice. Of course, if it is a bar, KTV, etc., if there is a need for singing and singing, you cannot use the background sound of the ceiling, but need to configure a complete set of more detailed sound solutions.

b. Home background sound solution.
Ceiling speakers can also be used as background speakers for home use, meeting the daily needs of listening to music, watching TV, and movies at home. Because of the problem of home decoration and the gradual deepening of the concept of smart home, it will occupy a larger market in the future.

2 Some basic parameters of ceiling speakers
Before understanding the parameters, we need to know that there are two very important concepts of ceiling speakers.
a. There are two types of ceiling speakers, one is ceiling speakers and the other is ceiling speakers.
b. The ceiling speaker is passive and needs to be equipped with a power amplifier to produce sound.
I will elaborate on it later, OK, enter the parameter section.

power
There are two types of power, one is the rated power (RMS), and the other is the maximum output power (PMPO). The rated power refers to the maximum power value that the speaker can safely use for a long time without distortion. This value is also used in normal use. However, except for some large manufacturers on the market that will mark this value, most of the other manufacturers mark the maximum output power. As for the maximum output power, for example, it is like a weightlifter. Although he can lift a barbell weighing several hundred kilograms, it can only support it for a few seconds. It may be burnt by high current shock. Remember, the power of the speaker is not necessarily related to the quality of the sound. The power only determines the size of the sound. Therefore, it is enough to choose according to the scene and the required area. Normally speaking 15W~60W is enough. If it is used in the bedroom, 1 watt can make the whole room hear clearly.

impedance
Impedance is the sum of resistance and reactance. Resistance refers to the resistance of objects to current flow; reactance refers to the resistance of capacitance and inductance to current flow. When listening to music, if the impedance is too low, the current will be too large, which will easily cause sound distortion. Therefore, it is not advisable to buy one with too low impedance when purchasing. Generally speaking, the impedance of the speaker is designed to be 8 ohms, 2, 4 , 6 or 16 ohms are also more common.

sensitivity
Sensitivity refers to the sound pressure level measured at a distance of 1M from the vertical central axis of the front of the speaker when the speaker is input with 1W power, and the unit is decibel (dB). The higher the sensitivity of the speaker, the easier and more friendly the power amplifier is to drive.

SNR
How to explain this in a popular way? In simple terms, it is the ratio of the normal sound signal to the noise signal, and the unit is expressed in decibels (dB). The higher the sound quality, otherwise the opposite. The higher the value, the better, it is directly related to the sound quality, and the signal-to-noise ratio should generally not be lower than 70dB.

Distortion
For audio systems, distortion is unavoidable, but as long as it is controlled within a certain range, it is normal, so there is a parameter of distortion. Distortion is the difference between the amplified signal and the unamplified signal, usually expressed as a percentage, the smaller the value, the smaller the distortion.

In addition to these parameters, there are also speaker weight, speaker diameter, frequency response, crossover point, etc., which are also what we should pay attention to when purchasing.
In addition, the parameters are only a reference indicator of the sound, and any sound can only be felt after listening to the sound, and then you will know which is better.
Only when the sound quality is compared will there be harm, and you will know how to choose, so a video of sound quality comparison is attached at the end of the article, don’t forget to watch it.

3 Ceiling audio brand
Ceiling speakers: Xianke, Swans, DSPPA, TOA, etc.
Ceiling speakers: BOSE, JBL, VILLIS, EV, etc.
Many people may wonder why some well-known audio brands have not appeared?
This is because these brands, such as Edifier, Dynaudio, Harman Kardon, B&O, etc., may have more prominent products in headphones, multimedia audio, and home theater, but they do not involve the category of ceiling audio. So it is out of the scope of our discussion this time.
