How to Mitigate against Wireless Interference

If you have a wireless router and you are noticing dropouts lately then chances are that some other wireless signals are interfering with your router. I will tell you how you can detect such signals and also how you can mitigate such wireless interference.

The reason why you might experience interference is because pretty much all routers which are sold nowadays are working at only two frequency bands. The bands in question are the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands. Each of these bands only has limited frequency space and therefore the number of channels also is limited. If you do notice some performance degradation of your wireless Internet lately then chances are that some other signal is affecting the transmission of your router.

Routers are set to a fixed frequency. If there are other routers in the area then there might be another router which is set to the same frequency. In that case, both signals will be sent on the same frequency space and can corrupt one another. The result is that data packets will get damaged and have to be retransmitted. That will slow down performance. You can detect such signals by performing a scan. This scan can be done by using a special router which …

How to Improve the Sound Quality of Your Speakers

In this post, I will cover the topic of tweaking the sound quality of your speakers. However, this topic is rather complex and I will not be able to get into much detail. Instead I’m going to focus on some basic techniques which are easy to implement.

First of all, the speakers have to be set up properly. That means they should be placed on a stable surface which doesn’t vibrate. If you don’t have a stable surface or a surface which is not very hard then you might want to purchase some special speaker spikes which are usually mounted at the bottom of speakers that reduce the amount of vibrations. You can also use a blanket made out of felt which is place underneath the speaker. This will dampen the vibrations of the speaker enclosure to prevent those vibrations to be transferred on to the basement.

Locate the speakers such that the front of each speaker is facing towards the area that you will usually listen. High-frequency components usually travel into one specific direction. That is why it is important that the front of the speaker is located properly. However, low frequencies are less critical. That means if you are setting up a subwoofer for example you can usually …

What Type of Speakers Work Best Outdoors?

The outdoor environment poses quite a few challenges when it comes to setting up some speakers. However, speakers are crucial element in providing ambience to your outdoor party. There are plenty of manufacturers nowadays which offer Bluetooth speakers which are designed for outdoor use. But are those speakers ideal for your party? Certainly, they don’t cost more than $50 and sometimes even less than $20. But what do you really get for this amount of money? I will shed some light on speakers which are marketed for outdoor use and also give you some insights in what to watch out for in order to avoid mistakes.

If you are still not certain what type of gift to give your loved ones, then you might want to look at some speakers for setting up outdoors. There are website such as Amazon.com or http://www.amphony.com/products/wireless-speaker.htm that offer wireless outdoor speakers. Certainly, it is now too cold to have an outdoor party but next summer is right around the corner. The party would not be much fun without some music and as such you need some suitable speakers. There are certain outdoor speakers which are passive speakers by design and as such need a certain amount of wiring in order to work. Depending on …

A Quick Look at Digital Audio Amplifiers

Audio power amplifiers are the core element between your source and speakers. They are required in order to drive speakers which have a very low impedance with a high voltage swing. If you were to connect speakers directly to a source then the source most likely would take some damage. Therefore an amplifier not only boosts the signal sufficiently to achieve the desired volume on a set of speakers but also it serves as the protection for your source. The way audio amplifiers work is changed quite a bit in the last decade. I’m going to explain how amplifiers work and what has changed in the last few years.

Nowadays the bulk of audio amplifiers works by using digital modulation. The core element of these switch mode amplifiers is a pair of complementary transistors. These transistors are switched on and off repeatedly. Even if the audio input signal doesn’t change, these transistors are switched constantly. Once there is an audio signal applied to the input of the amplifier, the signal which is modulating the power stage changes. This a change in time of the switching signal is either analog or digital. The frequency of the switching signal also might change depending on the technology.

You Don‘t Have To Be Afraid of New Technology

Technology is evolving in leaps and bounds. The tech sector still remains a strong segment of the economy. However, unlike other parts of the economy, only companies that have strong development are able to gain market share these days. Obviously, nobody wants to purchase a product which is outdated. Let’s take cell phones for example. Vendors are trying to carve out their piece of the market by inventing new models. Even though the features of the latest generation of cell phones have not evolved dramatically, manufacturers instead have increased the size of display and also refined the processing speed and also the touch and feel of their models.

Aside from making the products more powerful, manufacturers also have realized that a lot of people these days are unable to utilize their products properly. That is because usually these tech products lack the proper user interface. In other words, they are simply too difficult to use properly. Even though many products still are quite complicated to utilize, you nonetheless don’t have to be afraid to adopt new technologies. First of all, most cell phones and also other products are frequently updated with new firmware or software. Also, if you purchase one of the many available android cell phones or iPhone’s, you …
