Now that we’ve talked about the difference between wireless and Bluetooth speakers, what should you look for a in a Bluetooth speaker? Classic Stereo Electronics Professional Mike Smith tells us in this week’s Electronics 101.

ELECTRONICS 101 – WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

Electronics Professional Mike Smith first recommends picking up your Bluetooth speaker. Is it sturdy? Does it feel like it will be durable and produce a high quality sound? You want the speaker to also be able to produce some bass and remain true to the sound of the music.

He also recommends thinking about how you plan to use it. Do you want a Bluetooth speaker that allows you to answer your phone outside? Do you want to use the speaker to help charge your phone or some other source of your music?

Finally, you deserve a speaker with a long-lasting charge. You don’t want to spend eight hours charging your speaker, but only get to enjoy it for an hour or two. You can find Bluetooth speakers on our Sound Desk that can produce up to eight hours of music before needing to be recharged.

Using the right words can be very important in life. That is one of the many ways our experts can ask the right questions to make sure you get the right products. In this week’s Classic Stereo Electronics 101, Mike Smith talks about the difference between wireless speakers and Bluetooth speakers.

WIRELESS VS. BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS

In essence, a wireless speaker does not require any SPEAKER WIRES. However, wireless speakers usually need to be plugged into an electrical outlet, then they work with a source through a network.

Many people also refer to Bluetooth speakers as wireless. A Bluetooth speaker has no wires at all. They usually store a charge and work with their source through Bluetooth.

PORTABLE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER: BIG SOUND

Portable Bluetooth Speaker Peachtree DeepBlue 2

“You will be surprised how loud it can get,” Classic Stereo Electronics Professional Bill Price says. “Its sound is much bigger than its size.” If you are in search of a portable Bluetooth speaker, or even not a fan of them at all, come into our showroom to hear the Peachtree DEEPBLUE2. See if its sound shocks you too.

HOW DOES IT PRODUCE SO MUCH SOUND?

It does not even stand one foot tall and weighs only 16 pounds, so you can move the speaker into any room. With its small size in mind, Peachtree uses a few features to ensure that its speaker still performs well at a high volume.

  • A custom 440-watt amplifier creates five times more power than home Bluetooth speakers on the market.
  • The 6.5 inch woofer moves so much air that you will not only hear full bass, you will feel it too.
  • Five speakers configure three ways to balance the sound. You can easily hear every voice and instrument.

NOT JUST PORTABLE…IT’S SMART TOO

Volume changes how our ears hear bass. The portable Bluetooth speaker uses a “Smart Volume” feature to adapt the bass levels for you. Yet, a remote still lets you control the bass if you want.
