Speakers: Types & Functions

Speakers are actually relatively simple devices. You should understand at least the basics of how speakers work before incorporating them. Basically, you have an enclosure (typically a box) into which speaker drivers are attached. The drivers are the round elements that many people call the speakers (they’re not). Speaker drivers look like cones or horns (or even ribbons or domes), and in fact, the large surface area of the drivers is called the cone or diaphragm.These surfaces move back and forth to make the sound. If you have ever pulled the front screen off your speakers or have seen speakers without their front grille on, you’ve seen speaker drivers au naturelle.

 Let's start with 3 main types: Installed, Free standing, and Wireless

Installed: These are speakers such as "in-ceiling", "In-wall", "Cabinet", & even "Landscape" speakers. There are several benefits to these types of speakers, like taking up no floor space & no stands. This makes perfect for any sized room and works especially well in smaller spaces. They can also provide a higher quality of audio. The bass and treble effects of in-ceiling speakers are better than regular speakers and this is another reason for its popularity.

The wires can be concealed, which reduces the chances of accidents. Parents no longer have to worry about their kids tripping on the wires or pulling them by accident. These concealed wires also make the room clutter-free. This is why many users prefer to have the speakers installed.

Free-Standing: The beauty of freestanding speakers is that they come in many styles and sizes - from ultra-compact cubes & rectangular bookshelf models to the floor-standing towers. Styles and finishes range from plain-Jane boxes to sculpted cabinets with finishes that run from black vinyl or faux woodgrain to furniture-grade wood veneer or black lacquer polished to perfection.

So in addition to selecting speakers that physically fit the room, you can choose models that complement the décor or become a focal point. And whether we're talking about floor-standing towers or small- to medium-size speakers on a shelf or stand, you can move them around to optimize sound quality!    



For every music lover, who would want to listen to music on the go, then the portable speakers are a must have for you. These portable speakers don’t have much wiring like ordinary speakers would. One may have to connect a cord to a phone in order to play them, but with most portable Bluetooth speakers, one can simply connect their device via Bluetooth to the speaker and the songs will play. The portable Bluetooth speakers are light in weight and come in variety of sizes. 

The portable speakers operating on the Bluetooth can come in great handy. Let’s say you are at a picnic on a beach with friends and there is no source of electricity or music system. Here the portable Bluetooth speakers can come in handy because they are operated through battery and you can connect the speakers with Bluetooth and enjoy music with your friends! The sounds is simply amazing a clear as well!

Digital Signage

on Wednesday, 08 July 2015. Posted in Knoxville Digital Signage

IT’S ALIVE! Bring your story to life…

Digital signage is an effective, user-friendly and proven means of delivering dynamic messages to the right targets at chosen locations. Bring life to your promotional displays with eye-catching and interactive displays. Ideal for hospitality, casinos, retail, transportation hubs, entertainment, and many other venues, users have the ability to manage their own digital signage network across any number of locations, resulting in more captivated and engaged customers.

Have you been to the mall lately and noticed the directory has been replaced by a new interactive digital display or gone in your kids school to find reminders scrolling by on digital signs in common areas? Digital signage is becoming not only popular, but the new standard in the industry. In fact, they are becoming so common that it's almost odd when businesses still use basic posters or signs. The types of businesses that can benefit from this technology are endless and the time digital signage can save employees and management is worth its weight in gold. They truly are the quickest way to display information and in today's fast paced society, every second counts. They can be used in many different locations, but here are just a few:

Digital Signage can be changed in a flash so you'll always be able to bring announcements to your audience ASAP. Before digital signage, you would have to design poster displays, have them made, spend a decent amount of money, and have it displayed in enough time that it's still relevant. So say you own a small boutique and you want to get rid of some extra inventory by having a big spring sale, but you really wanted to do it this weekend. Unfortunately you get a call Wednesday and there's a delay with your signs and they won't be done until the following Monday. Digital signage allows you to change your message instantly so you can pass along news, events or sales at a moment’s notice.

Digital signage is especially a must in schools or college campuses these days. They are perfect for keeping students in the know about deadlines or events and can be lifesaving in case of an emergency like dangerous weather conditions. They are also great for those students that always seem to forget tuition deadlines!

Don't get left in the Dark Ages, let us show you how digital signage can work for your business.
