The science of sound - How Lithe Audio delivers superb sound quality
8 October 2018 | Amit
We here at Lithe Audio are audio geeks. Which means we’re continually searching for better and more efficient ways of bringing superb sounding audio to homes and businesses around the UK and the world.
We realise the importance of music in bringing people together and deliver amazing experiences for you, your friends, and your family. And a decent quality sound system is a feature that can really get people dancing together and having a great time.
We believe our ceiling speakers deliver a truly unique sonic experience unmatched by other audio systems. And the secret behind this amazing sound is our decision to mount the speakers up on the ceiling. By kitting out your living space with our Bluetooth or Wifi enabled speaker units, we guarantee your home audio experience will be transformed.
Here’s how we achieve such amazing results...
Ever wondered why that speaker you’ve feng shui’d into the corner of the room sounds lacklustre? It’s because of the way sound travels around the room. If you imagine your walls and objects in your room as pool table cushions, then you can get a sense of why your speakers aren’t sounding the way they ought.
For the best effect, listeners require direct, unmediated sound waves. For home theatre units, this involves staging stereo speakers at set intervals around the room to deliver a full 360 sound experience.
But for those who have neither the budget, space, nor willingness to stay in one position for hours on end, it makes sense to mount the speakers up high. Why? Because they direct sound waves downwards for more comprehensive audio coverage.
Speakers positioned at ground level may create hot and cold spots, where sound waves are unequally distributed. Filtering the sound down vertically, you are given a more balanced means of audio distribution. Our decision to mount speakers on the ceiling is therefore in tune with the physics of sound. Fill your room with superb audio!
Low and high frequencies
The design of our speakers are no accident. The distinctive concentric look that looks great in any home or business includes two fantastic units catering to different frequency ranges. The sound of our all-in-one speaker models boasts an incredible 65Hz-20kHz spectrum. That means more powerful bass, and crisper treble, than your average Bluetooth model.
Our speakers boast a fantastically engineered woofer and tweeter combination, both utilising the latest cone technology. In terms of audio quality, this combination provides a flat frequency response, low distortion, fast transient response, and a low resonance frequency.
So whether you’re watching films, playing games, or just listening to your favourite tunes, our speakers are perfect for your home audio needs.
We’ve designed our speakers to not only look great, but to sound amazing. And with many of our customers choosing to kit their entire home out with further bathroom and passive models, that Lithe Audio sound is something to be relished
Managing Director at the company Amit Ravat described the idea behind creating a powerful, all-in-one ceiling speaker solution.
“We wanted ceiling speakers because of all the benefits they bring in terms of sound quality and space saving design but could not run cables through the walls without major disruption so decided to develop a speaker which we could install in any room by just adding power.”
“And being avid music listeners of various genres of music the speaker needed to sound amazing and be a price that was affordable and not just for high end luxury home usually associated with a in ceiling speaker system.”
