Professional Tips and Tricks for Going Wireless

The world is going wireless, and outdoor speakers are going wireless with it. Wireless speakers offer plenty of benefits. You don’t have to go to the time and trouble of connecting them by wire to amplifiers, and you don’t have to worry about friends, family or guests tripping over loose wires. They have no wires to degrade outside under the elements. Some wireless speakers are portable, so you can move them around to get that perfect sound or take them with you as you move outside. They are good looking and attractive, made to blend in with any décor. Wireless speakers shaped like rocks or planters complement natural surroundings.

All of these speakers offer excellent sound at an affordable price. Outdoor Speaker Depot offers a huge assortment of high-quality wireless outdoor speakers at rock-bottom prices with free shipping. If you’re thinking about switching to wireless speakers, here are some professional tips and tricks for going wireless.

One of the biggest problems with wireless speakers is that they can be subject to interference from other electrical and electronic gadgets, including computers, garage door openers, cordless phones and a variety of other devices. To keep interference to a minimum, place your system as far as possible from power, phone and other cables.

The same goes for wireless routers. Although problems are unusual, certain types of wireless routers cause interference with wireless speakers. The solution is simple. Move the transmitter away from the router and then run through the frequencies several times.

Also, avoid using old-fashioned speakers that operate on 900 MHz. This digital spectrum is very crowded, because many common household items use it, and interference is more likely. Opt for better speakers that use 2.4 GHz. You’ll have less trouble with interference and will get clearer, better music.

You can also improve your system’s performance from streaming services such as Spotify by setting the service for maximum quality and kilobytes per second. Do this by going into the settings and making the adjustment there. This will vary with the service provider, which can provide specific directions.

You can also adjust your computer settings to improve the music by increasing the kbps. Services such as iTunes provide a standard default setting of just 256 kbps. If you increase that to just 320 kbps, you will be getting more out of the music you listen to.

If you have a receiver that comes with a “pure” or “direct” button that will give a clearer sound, try it and see if you get a sweeter sound. Don’t be afraid to try all the buttons and switches on your receiver and amp that allow you to make adjustments. You can always go back to the default mode if the changes don’t work out.
