An Amazing gaming experience is not only about the visuals but also the sound. But, it’s easy to miss out on the tiny details if you’re not using headphones. But, with the latest soundbar and subwoofer technology, gaming has reached a new level. With their proper use, every audio effect can come to life. Here, we’ve described these ultimate gaming sound solutions.
It’s impossible to get the proper sound effect without placing your soundbars and subwoofers correctly. It’s true for even the best soundbars or subwoofers.
As all of us know, soundbars are placed over or under the TV. The subwoofer Should also be placed on the front part of the room beside the soundbars. They work best with the center channel speakers in sync.
Be sure to place them near the soundbars. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions in front of the woofers. If you have one woofer, test which side works for you the best. Put it left and right beside the soundbar and check the sound experience.
And, if you have two woofers, just put them on both sides of the soundbar.
You can also put the woofers on the corners of the room to boost the acoustic punch. But, make sure that it’s a few inches away from the wall. It will allow the subwoofer to reverberate properly.
Be Detail Specific
Escaping from reality to within the game is what makes it worthwhile. And, to do that, even the slightest details in sound are necessary. So, the soundbar and subwoofers have to provide optimum sound quality.
Today soundbars and woofers use complex algorithms to imitate the surrounding sounds of the game. While the subwoofers can create the perfect background sound to imitate explosions, and rumbles in the game.
So, for the soundbars, make sure that they have at least 3 channels. More channels mean a more immersive sound experience. Also, be sure to buy active soundbars as they’ll have built-in amplifiers.
And, while buying subwoofers, check the RMS power and if the amplifier can support it. Make sure the woofer has a high sensitive rating to produce more sound with lesser power. Also, look for dual voice coil woofers for more flexibility while wiring.
We know how important dialogues in games are. Missing even one line creates a plot hole. Thus, soundbars and woofers nowadays come with dialogue enhancement technology. It increases the volume of the dialogue while keeping the background music volume the same.
You can also look for an option named ‘Dynamic Range Compression’. It’ll allow the louder noises like explosions to compress and soften the dialogues. Thus, you’ll be able to hear the dialogue better.
Also, be sure to mute the internal speakers on your TV. This will let your soundbars and woofers shine even more.
Hopefully, now you understand what to look for besides techy features in your soundbars and woofers. Still, we’d like you to know one more thing. Make sure that the soundbars have HDMI switching. This will make it easier to switch sound sources without re-routing HDMI cables. Thanks for reading the whole article.
