FAQs about Surround Speakers

Surround speakers are part of a multi-channel audio system designed to envelop the listener in sound from various directions. In a home theatre setup, they are specifically positioned to the sides or behind the listening area to provide ambient sounds, special effects, and enhance the immersive experience of movies, TV shows, and video games. Surround speakers complement the front left, centre, and right speakers, and possibly a subwoofer, to create a full surround sound experience, bringing the on-screen action to life.

There are several types of surround speakers, each designed for different room setups and preferences:

  • Bookshelf speakers: Compact and versatile, can be placed on stands or shelves. Satellite speakers: Even smaller than bookshelf speakers, often used when space is limited.
  • Bipolar/Dipolar speakers: Feature two sets of drivers facing in opposite directions to create a more diffuse sound field, ideal for surround effects. In-ceiling and in-wall speakers: Provide a clean look by being mounted flush with the surfaces, offering an immersive sound without taking up floor or shelf space.
  • On-wall speakers: Designed to mount directly on the wall and are a good compromise between sound quality and space-saving.

While it's not an absolute requirement, matching the surround speakers with the front speakers from the same brand or series can ensure a cohesive sound field and timbre matching, which can enhance the overall immersive experience. However, if this isn't possible, focusing on finding surround speakers that have a similar sound character to your front speakers can still provide a satisfying surround sound experience.

For a 5.1 surround sound setup, position the surround speakers to the sides of the listening area, slightly above ear level when seated, and angled slightly towards the listener. In a 7.1 setup, additional speakers are placed behind the listener. The exact angles and distances can vary based on room acoustics and personal preference, but following the guidelines provided by formats like Dolby Digital or DTS can serve as a good starting point for placement.

Yes, wireless speakers can be used as surround speakers, offering the convenience of reducing cable clutter and allowing for more flexible placement options. Many modern home theatre systems include wireless options for the rear channels, either as part of an all-in-one package or through add-on wireless kits designed to work with traditional wired systems. Ensure that the wireless system you choose is compatible with your existing home theatre setup and that it supports the audio formats you intend to use.
