1.0 An Overview of Bookshelf Loudspeakers

1.0 An Overview of Bookshelf Loudspeakers
Bookshelf loudspeakers are refer more to the size and configuration of a loudspeaker than whether or not they can or will be installed in a bookshelf. Bookshelf speakers are normally installed on stands or mounts of some sort. They tend to be front ported or fully dynamic in configuration. Because of their small size they are known for their ability to image very nicely but rarely produce deep bass thus are often also matched with a powered subwoofer to get a full range sound. Bookshelf speakers are also used frequently today as side and or rear speakers in 5.1 and 7.1 speaker configurations.
