Choose the best sound quality for your connected speaker

Connected and wireless speakers are becoming increasingly popular and offer increasingly impressive audio performance. If you want to choose the perfect smart speaker, it's important to understand what makes up good sound quality. With this information, you can better assess the sound quality of your smart speaker and get sound that suits your needs.

Power and frequency response

One of the main characteristics to take into account when buying a connected speaker is the power. The power of a speaker gives you an idea of how much sound it can produce. Learn the wattage (W) of each speaker you're considering, and make sure that number is high enough to meet your needs. For example, a smart speaker with a power of 10W will be ideal for a small room, while a 30W speaker will be better suited for a larger room.

Frequency response is also an important part of sound quality. The frequency response indicates how often the speaker can produce sound and how often it will be audible. Speakers in an audio system can produce low, mid, and high frequencies, and their frequency range can be important for good sound quality. You will need to be aware of the frequency range your speaker can produce and look for a speaker that can produce satisfying sounds at all frequencies.

Distortion and sound pressure levels

Distortion levels are another important factor to consider when buying a smart speaker. Distortion refers to the loss of sound quality that the speaker produces, which affects sound power and signal clarity. Low distortion is needed to avoid unwanted spikes or clicks in the signal. A good loudspeaker will generally have a total distortion level of less than 1%.

The sound pressure level or decibels (dB) indicates the amount of sound that can be produced by the speaker. Higher sound pressure levels mean the speaker can produce louder sound. A good smart speaker will have a very high sound pressure level and deliver excellent sound quality at high volume levels. Most smart speakers will have flexibility in their sound pressure level and you should look for speakers that offer pressure levels ranging from 85dB to 115dB.

Resolution and delay time

When buying a smart speaker, look for resolution and delay time. Resolution is the number of bits a speaker can support. The higher the number of bits, the better the sound quality. Connected speakers usually support either 16-bit or 24-bit resolution.

The delay time or delay between signal input and signal output is also important. With a speaker with a low delay time, you can enjoy the best sound without interruption. Speakers connected usually at a lower baud rate, which may cause a longer delay time.
