  • Speakers behind monitor, better quality of sound?

    Due to new small desk I had to put speakers behind my monitor, will this effect around quality at all I tried angle them out so not blocked completely by monitor, one faces open room but other wall so might block sound?

    I try add some pics but exceeded file size I'll try add pics later

    There is plenty of theory on speaker positioning. You seem to have done a good job of breaking every rule going.

    Aim them at your ears. Not at the wall.

    But if these are inexpensive powered computer monitors fed from a cheap sound card, you probably won't notice the difference, especially if your musical tastes stop at heavy metal.

    PS you also need a new camera, or whatever you use to take photos.

              Maybe I will bump into you there this afternoon.

              The last "rock" gig I can remember attending was Joe Ely at Antone's in Austin, Texas. More than 20 years ago.

                    Is there a PC variant of the old hifi adage?

                    Spend the same amount on the source (turntable or CD player for example), the amplifier and speakers?

                    So, don't waste money feeding 1000 speakers from a 200 amplifier and a 50 turntable.

                      Common guys, I know he posts a lot of dumb stuff but it's not that silly using cheap speakers in an expensive sound card if you mostly use your soundcard for audio recording. In fact cheap soundcards are terrible for audio recording.

                      The amp+speaker comparison is completely unfair as an unsuitable amp could literally break your speakers.

                      It wasn't that hard to follow. "spool" was probably meant to be "spdif" which I would imagine most phones would autocorrect incorrectly. If you take that into account his post does make sense.

                        Why?

                        An expensive audio card should produce better sound than a cheap sound card, or the on-board audio chip.

                        So it should deliver better sound output.

                        More expensive speakers should sound better when you feed them with a decent signal.

                        So the question is, if I spend 100 on a sound card, how much is it reasonable to spend on the speakers the card plays through?

                        One seller has PC speakers from 10 to 340.

                        So, if I have a 100 sound card, how much is it worth spending on speakers?

                          But he already said he got it for recording via spdif and mostly just uses headphones for listening.

                          If he doesn't use his speakers much then what's the point in mocking him for using budget speakers the few times he does? Not everyone can justify throwing cash at hardware they use infrequently. But it doesn't invalidate the point of his soundcard because recording via spdif is something worth investing in a better soundcard for alone (terrible english that last statement but I think you get my point).

                            In didn't mock him, at least, not on that front. That was someone else.

                            I asked a question, which you seem to have misinterpreted with the notion that "an unsuitable amp could literally break your speakers".

                              No misinterpretation. I'm just saying there's a more direct relationship between an amp and speakers which makes it more important to pare the right set together than it would to match active speakers with a soundcard. I used the blown speakers point as an example to illustrate the relationship between amp and speaker.
