Type of Speakers-Audio Systems
Speaker is a device which throws out the sound which is received in the form of signals from the audio system. Speakers are not to be segregated as latest or obsolete because there are different types of speakers. The best quality speakers, even today, are the Floor Standing and not the Wall Mounting ones. Speakers can be 2 way , 3 way, or 4 way. It signifies the types of drivers your speaker has. For example, if your speaker has a woofer and a tweeter then it is a 2 way speaker. In 2 way systems it is not recommend to buy a system with a woofer larger than 7". Anything larger, in most cases, will not faithfully reproduce the midrange frequencies with realism, clarity and detail. If it has a woofer, a midrange and a tweeter then it is a 3-way speaker. Hi-Fi systems have normally between 2, 3, 4 way speakers, mini systems have either 2 or 3 way speakers and portables have either 1 or 2 way speakers.
