A speaker box is a box that is used to hold speakers in place. However, the design of most speaker boxes is not ideal for sound. Most speaker boxes can harm the sound. This blog will let you know about how to make a speaker box sound better.
How to make a speaker box sound better?
There are two ways to make a speaker box sound better. Firstly, the speaker box volume can be increased without making too many compromises on sound quality. It would involve adding more material to the side of the speaker box facing the speakers, which I will cover first.
Secondly, you can change how big your speaker boxes are. For example, if your speaker boxes are two foot cubed (length x width x height), you can change them to one foot by six inches by three feet. It would only make the sound slightly better than the first solution, but it is easy to do and can be done quickly with little cost or effort.
How much volume?
The first way to make a speaker box sound better is to increase the volume of your speaker box by adding more material. The more volume you have, the less bass will escape outside of the box, which means it won’t be lost as much before it reaches you. It means that there is a less tonal distortion which means that the speaker box will sound better.
There are two ways to do this; the first is to add a circular piece of wood thicker than your current material and smaller in diameter than your speaker box. It should be glued onto the back of your speaker box. The second method is to glue on a square piece of wood that is thick enough to change the volume of your speaker box without changing how it looks.
If you are interested in making a speaker box sound better, add more material on the side facing your speakers. It will increase the volume of your speaker boxes without changing how they look or what they are made out of. Increasing the amount of material outside the speaker box also means less bass is lost before it reaches you.
It is just one way to make a speaker box sound better; there are other ways to improve the sound quality of your speaker boxes. Speaker boxes can negatively or positively affect good quality, so it is crucial to think about how you construct them before you start wiring up speakers.
How big should my speaker boxes be?
It depends on where you are planning to put them. If you want your speakers in the corner of a room, for example, they should be slightly shorter than each wall (if you don’t want any sound lost behind the speaker box). If you want them to sit in an open space, make sure there is enough space around the box and enough distance to the first wall.
How do I make them bigger?
Cut another two pieces of material to give more room inside your speaker box. The longer your speaker boxes are, the more bass will be dissipated as it travels away from you, so try and keep them as short as possible without compromising on sound quality.
What are speaker boxes made out of?
They can be made out of many different materials, for example, MDF or particleboard. You can also use denser wood like Oak if you want your speaker box (ideally the front and back) to look slightly better than one made out of a less dense wood-like Elm or Pine.
How do you make a speaker box hit harder?
A speaker box will be more complex if you have bigger speaker boxes. It means the volume inside your speaker box is greater meaning more bass can be produced.
When should I use a ported speaker box?
A ported speaker box is used to produce low frequencies very quickly. It works by using an opening that allows air into the back of the speaker box when it has low frequencies. Air will travel through this opening when the speaker plays low frequencies, which means more bass is produced.
Does putting a speaker in a box make it louder?
No. Speaker boxes are designed to reduce the movement of air in and out of the speaker box, which makes it, so there is less tonal distortion. If you put a speaker in a box, it will simply sound different because some frequencies are being dissipated before they reach your ears.
What should I glue on my speaker box?
If you want your speaker box to sound better, add more material on the side facing your speakers. It will increase the volume of your speaker boxes without changing how they look or what they are made out of.
