Small Space, Single Speaker?

During a recent Virtual Consultation, a client wanted music in a small bathroom and asked if she could use just 1 speaker. My answer was a qualified yes with a major stipulation. You do not want to use a standard in ceiling speaker. The reason for this is two-fold. First, connecting a single speaker to a stereo amplifier with no speaker connected to 2ndoutput is not good for the amplifier. Second, connecting to only one output of the amplifier results in hearing only half of the voices and instruments. As an engineer explained to me early in my career, listening to only 1 stereo channel is listening to the Beatles and hearing only Paul and Ringo. The correct way to install a single speaker in a small space is to use a stereo speaker such as the Klipsch Designer Series Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker. This type of speaker has 2 inputs, left and right. Using a stereo speaker results in hearing the complete audio soundtrack and avoids having an unused output on your amplifier.For installation, this type of speaker requires 2 speaker cables. So remember, for small spaces needing a single speaker, use a stereo speaker.Please visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
