Misconceptions About In-Ceiling Speakers

Whether you're purchasing a nice set of JENSEN floor standing speakers, in wall speakers, in-ceiling speakers or something else entirely, the end goal is always the same: you're trying to build the best home theater system that money can buy to accurately recreate the cinema experience in the comfort of your own home. You probably already have some very specific ideas on how best to accomplish this, but not all of those notions may be based on the most accurate information. Case in point: there are a range of misconceptions about in-ceiling speakers that have prevailed throughout time that need to be addressed moving forward. Once you understand how to get the most out of your in-ceiling JENSEN speakers, home theater will never sound the same.

It's Impossible to Create an Accurate Sound Field

One of the benefits of a surround sound system comes by way of immersion. By placing speakers in front of and behind you (and in some cases on the side of you), you're creating essentially a "box" of sound that you sit right in the middle of. This makes you feel less like you're watching your favorite movie or TV show and more as if you're an active participant in it.

Because in-ceiling speakers are installed above you, many people believe that one of the biggest drawbacks is that the sound field is negatively affected, distorting this ever-important immersion factor at the same time. This is completely false - so long as you purchase a high quality set of JENSEN in-ceiling speakers and pay close attention to where you're installing them, the immersion factor can be just as good as it can with something like floor standing speakers.

In-Ceiling Speakers Harm Your Home

Speakers shake - those loud, booming explosions in the latest Hollywood blockbuster are a large part of the reason why people might invest in a home theater system in the first place. Because of this, however, many people assume (or were flat out told at some point) that in-ceiling speakers are a bad idea because right when you're in the thick of things, they'll shake your entire house and may even cause structural damage if left unchecked.

This is yet another misconception that is not rooted in anything even close to fact. In-ceiling speakers still give you all of that booming power that you're after, but they're constructed in a way to minimize and account for the natural shaking that occurs when you crank your system up as high as you're willing to go. Not only do you not have to worry about your entire home rumbling the next time you sit down to enjoy a film, but you're actually getting the added benefit of top quality construction at the same time.

These are just a few of the many misconceptions about JENSEN in-ceiling speakers. Once you've installed some high quality, low profile in-ceiling speakers into your home theater system, you'll wonder how you were ever able to watch your favorite movies and TV shows without them.
