How Do Bluetooth Speakers Work?

Do you have any idea how your Bluetooth speakers work? Are you curious about the process that takes place inside your speakers? Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes. There are Bluetooth speakers that are big; there are those speakers which are small and there are those Bluetooth speakers that are of the same size as regular plug-it speakers. Though they come in different shapes and sizes, these do not really matter. These characteristics are for aesthetic purposes only and these speakers all work the same way — using Bluetooth technology.

What is Bluetooth technology? Basically, this technology is connective convenience. Bluetooth technology is considered the global wireless standard for the expansion of the range of connectivity of a device. Since we are in a world where connectivity matters a lot; the presence of Bluetooth technology is a very important element for our daily lives. It helps us get connected to each a lot easier. With this being said, Bluetooth technology is now built into various products – cars, mobile phones, medical devices, computers and even on toothbrushes and forks. This technology allows us to share music, videos, photos, data and other information wirelessly between “paired” devices. Bluetooth technology has been known to us for its low cost and low power consumption.

This technology is then applied to speakers, thus giving birth to Bluetooth speakers. This Bluetooth capability on speakers is one of the latest innovations in these field. How does this work? Bluetooth technology in these speakers allows devices to “talk to each other”. This technology works by embedding tiny, inexpensive transreceivers or chips into your devices, that then transmits and/or receive radio waves. These radio waves are then amplified by your speakers.

When you are connecting a Bluetooth speaker with your Smartphone, it works this way: Your Smartphone will transmit radio waves to the speaker; then this speaker will receive and process these radio waves; lastly, these radio waves, in the form of music or voice, will then be amplified using the speakers’ built in amplifiers.

When choosing which speaker you are going to buy among the wide variety of designs and functions, always keep in mind to consider you audio and lifestyle needs or preferences. You should also consider your taste with regards to its design or appearance. Knowing the right Bluetooth speaker for you will ensure that you get the best performance your speaker’s going to give.

Music is a nice addition for every outdoor party. However setting up speakers outdoors may be a hassle. I will give some advice for setting up speakers outdoors.

Music can be a nice touch regardless of whether you have a party or trying to improve the morale at work. There are several difficulties, however, when you set up speakers in a larger area or throughout your home. One of these difficulties is running the wiring from your amplifier to all of your speakers. The other is maintaining even sound level in a larger space.

Outdoor speakers present yet another challenge. They will be exposed to the elements and the sun. Thus the enclosure must be waterproof and also should have a protective coating. The amplifier and speaker wiring also must be protected against rain.

Instead of using one large amplifier, you may also want to investigate using distributed amplifiers to eliminate long speaker cable runs and also simplify adjusting the speaker volume in each location.

If you do not want to run a lot of speaker cable then you should look at wireless speakers. Wireless speakers come with a transmitter which is usually paired with the speakers either by having switchable channels or via a pairing button.

Digital wireless speakers offer improved audio fidelity and reliability than analog 900 MHz type speakers. If you need to cover a large area then you need to make sure that the transmitter operating range is large enough and also keep in mind that walls will shorten the range. Robustness is another concern, especially if you have a lot of interference from other wireless gadgets. Thus look for a speaker which incorporates error correction and is thus able to cope with such interference.

The wattage of the speaker must be large enough for the space which you are looking to cover and also large enough to overcome noise if you plan to use the speakers outdoors. Outdoor speakers will be exposed to the elements. Thus the speakers should be waterproof. Also, the housing should have a protective coat for protection from extended sun exposure. Some wireless speakers such as Bluetooth speakers employ audio compression to reduce the amount of data to be transmitted. However, audio compression will degrade the audio fidelity depending on much the audio is compressed and also adds latency which can potentially cause sync problems when there is video present.
