Ensuring you get the positioning of speakers in your property right, is essential in order to utilise your speakers and your space. This of course will depend on the size of the room, shape, and how you use the space.
The general recommendation for rectangular or square is one speaker for the first 16m² and an additional speaker for every further 8m². For example square shape room of 4m x 4m or 16m² we recommend that you would only need one speaker. If your room was 4m x 6m or 24m² we'd recommend two speakers.
Of course every space is different and are not always square or rectangular. If you are adding speakers to an irregular or L shaped room additional speakers should be considered alongside what is generally recommended.
We also recommend that you install the speakers at least 76mm away from the wall to ensure best audio coverage.
On the face of a Lithe Audio speaker, you will find the equaliser switch. We recommend the positive setting (+) if you have a high vaulted ceiling, which will produce +3dB. For a tiled room such as a bathroom we recommend the negative setting (-), which will produce -3dB.
