Get Your Next Pair of Column Array Speakers – Guided Tips

The best way to enjoy your music is in stereo sound. It’s necessary to purchase Column Array Speakers. That means that the left speaker’s audio should be played on the left ear, and the right speaker’s audio should be played on the right ear. But this isn’t always possible because you might not have two speakers or enough space for them in your home or office.

So what are some alternatives? Well, there are a few options but they all come with tradeoffs: Two regular speakers will give more of an immersive experience if they’re positioned properly; however, you’ll need more space and equipment. Multi-speaker arrays (like column arrays) will fill up a room with sound, but it’s harder to get them set up correctly and higher quality models are more expensive.

We recommend column array speakers for people that want the benefit of filling a room with sound without having too much trouble setting them up or spending too much money, and this guide should help you find the best pair for your needs.

Here are more options for you to choose:

The JBL CBT 1000 is a line-array column speaker system, with many applications across residential and commercial uses. It’s perfect for performing arts centers or entertainment venues such as cinemas and auditoriums. But the JBL CBT1000 isn’t just for people in the arts: it can be used to provide clairvoyant presentations outside of its home theater niche thanks to additional capabilities like amplification and broadcast sound projection.

The JBL CBT 1000 – a top performer, loudspeaker solution for live sound. It delivers system flexibility and industry-leading sound quality in a compact package with uncompromising power. Since JBL’s first loudspeakers hit the market more than 50 years ago, high-quality sound has been at the heart of every innovation as well as part of JBL’s iconic launch into music, live performance, and broadcast.

In 1974, an engineer from Stanford University named James Boynton laid down his blueprint for what is now recognized as one of the most accurate on-axis measurements ever recorded: The Fletcher Munson Curves. And that was the beginning and end of the speaker and component design limited only by physics. So you’ve got a pair of JBL CBT 1000 Column Line Array Speakers at your gig.

The JBL CBT features point source technology which is ideal if you only want one speaker. This makes it great for desktop use or any other situation where you don’t want a lot of equipment. It’s an overall great speaker and we would recommend it for any use at home or office.

Electro-Voice Evolve 50M Portable Linear

  • The full-range column array and its eight lightweight 3.5” neodymium drivers provide ultra-wide, full-bandwidth 120° coverage via proprietary waveguides; array-formed 40° asymmetrical vertical coverage ensures acoustic output is directed towards both sitting and standing audience members

  • The perfect choice for bands/musicians, AV rental companies, DJs and any application where true professional audio performance is required in a super-compact and portable package

The Electro-Voice Evolve 50m is an excellent portable linear which I have been using for the past 8 months. They are durable with a water-resistant coating and have great carrying handles. The most impressive feature about this product is that it can be set up in any shape configuration you would like (column, line array) with only one speaker per output channel.

The sound quality exceeded my expectations because of its crossover filter that creates crisp vocal clarity & enhancement to make music pop out, even at lower volumes. It sounds better than the previous model I owned but cost less! Another plus is that there aren’t many speakers on the market which retail for under $1000; meaning these are competitively priced.

If you’re in the market for a durable portable PA solution, Electro-Voice’s Evolve 50M loudspeakers are worth your consideration. These speakers are the perfect addition to live sound reinforcement when you need powerful low-end coverage with excellent clarity. The EV50MP has built-in DSP circuitry which means that it is an ideal choice for PFL (Pre-Fade Listen) applications where many inputs can be mixed at once without interfering with one another. And this loudspeaker delivers an incredible punch of 150 watts maximum output power!

Pros:

– Durable with a water-resistant coating

– Great carrying handles

– One speaker per output channel

– Crossover filter creates crisp vocal clarity and music enhancement at lower volumes

– Sounds better than the previous model I owned but cost less!

Cons:

– Doesn’t include a transport bag, which is a bit disappointing

Audio equipment has always been an investment that doesn’t go unnoticed. The sound quality of speakers is one of the most important factors in getting a great and expensive experience. The drivers and amplification create an amazing display, but if it isn’t supported by the size of the box, there will be distortions in each frequency range thanks to reflections from surfaces.

In terms of performance, this speaker set allows for different settings to balance high frequencies with low frequencies so you get all your music clarity with no distortion or ringing anywhere on their desired frequencies ranges which require minimal effort when adjusting compared to most other speaker sets out there. These speakers handle bass effortlessly without any distorting highs which make these perfect even if you have a bigger living space with less noise insulation restrictions in the walls.

The speakers are all made out of metal and it really gives them an increased weight which adds to the stability when placed on desks or in corners. Without proper consideration, speaker vibrations can be enough to shift surfaces fast enough to make even the most expensive speakers lose their balance. The design of these speakers covers that problem which means you can enjoy listening to your music without having to constantly readjust them for all songs available.

Pros:

– All metal construction

– Powerful sound

– Great frequency range and no distortion anywhere on the frequency

– Lightweight and easy to move around with

– Solid and stable with no vibrations from speakers themselves

Cons:

-Costly for some personal budgets

-Not the best option for music with high voices or different singing styles

– Lacking rear ports which can get blocked by standing them

Column Array Speakers Benefits

Column Array Speakers

The best way to make a room sound better is with the use of column array speakers.   These speakers are designed to be placed at the front and back of a room, where they bounce sound waves off the walls in order to create an immersive surround sound experience for listeners. The most significant advantage these types of speakers have over traditional ones is that they provide a more even distribution of audio throughout the room.

This means music can be heard from all angles rather than just from one direction. It also ensures that every seat in the audience has equal access to high-quality audio, which can dramatically improve listening experiences for everyone involved. 

Column array speakers are not too expensive either when you compare them against other types of high-quality speakers. If your business is looking for a way to improve the quality of its sound system without breaking the bank, investing in this type of speaker may be exactly what you need.

They are often used by DJs and music professionals to provide an extra level of immersion during live performances, but they have many other applications as well, including movie screenings and seminars. The more popular a speaker type becomes, the more affordable it typically becomes as well. This means that while these speakers can be pricey when they first come out, the price should drop over time as demand for them increases.

Factors To Consider When Choosing Column Array Speakers

Size

These speakers are generally pretty large, so be prepared to have a bigger space for them. Most units measure about three feet in height and they come with a stand attached. The majority of column array speakers also have a weight limit of 120kg or about 265 pounds, which is more than enough for one person to handle. If they need to be transported, these speakers can be broken down into smaller pieces for easier transport.

Price

The most expensive column array speakers are going to have a wide range of features and capabilities that set them apart from the competition. In order to choose the best possible speaker, you will want to consider what your needs are before making a purchase. Once you are able to determine your needs, you can narrow down the available options so that you are left with speakers which offer everything you need without being too expensive.

Frequency Range

These speakers have a high-frequency range of around 20kHz, so they are capable of producing sounds in the highest registers without struggling. This is not something most other types of speakers are able to do. Their small size is the main reason why they are capable of producing such high-quality sounds since there is less overall space for things to get muddled up.

FAQs about Column Array Speakers

Column Array Speakers

How do they compare to traditional speakers?

The column array speaker sets are designed to offer excellent sound quality with the ability to create an immersive 360 degrees sound field for listeners in both live and recorded settings.

Column Array Speakers

Column Array: Celestino’s column arrays offer a blend of directional clarity and 360 degrees sound projection that is unrivaled in design. Line Array: The line array speaker system was originally developed for live music performance, but it also offers directional clarity that can enhance recordings when mixed properly.

What is the difference between an indoor speaker and an outdoor speaker?

Many people are surprised to find out that not all speakers are created equal, in fact, they can differ greatly in both quality and performance. Indoor speakers will work well for playing music without hurting the ears of others, while outdoor speakers should be used for louder events where neighbors would need protection.
