Better Sound Quality

Experimenting with Sound 
      I recently read an article about "making your Bluetooth speaker sound better". It all comes down to acoustics. Different places in the room have different effects on the sound. It doesn't take a scientist to figure this stuff out really. Way back probably before fifth grade, I used to take speakers apart, experiment with it, and the whole kid thing that a lot of us did. Yes, we got in trouble, but you learned things that helped you get better sound or just fix things better than your parents ever could.
Sound Tips
     I quickly learned that speakers and subwoofers need a box or case of some sort. A subwoofer is basically a speaker that is meant to produce pure bass. Subwoofers need a thicker case and speakers need a thinner one. Put a subwoofer or speaker in the corner and the bass is magnified. You can even hear the much lower tones sometimes that was hidden when it was in the middle of the room.
     You might not be as much of an experimenter as me, but next time, give your speaker or sub a chance. Read the CNET article "How to make your Bluetooth speaker sound better". So as , would say it, "Try the Audiophiliac's simple experiments, and you might get better sound. It's easy to do, and it's free."
