Materials affect the sound quality of speakers (loudspeaker box).
At present, the materials used in the speakers are mainly divided into plastic boxes and wooden boxes. Material thickness and quality are directly related to speaker cost, and also affect the performance of the speaker. The higher the material density of the speaker enclosure, the smaller the vibration generated by the cabinet when the sound is emitted, especially for active speakers with high-power amplifiers, and the thickness of the panel is a strong guarantee for achieving subwoofer. Therefore, the bass effect of the plastic speaker is not flattering. Obviously, the low-end audio products must be molded. But is the mid-range speaker definitely wooden? The answer is no. The speakers of this grade are both wooden and plastic-like, but some imitations have completely reached the level of realism.
The medium and high-end products are definitely wooden, but the use of medium-density plates or multi-layer plates also have different effects on sound quality. Even if the selected plates are the same, the output power is the same. The sound quality of the different design structures and different cabinet sizes may still be far apart. However, some speakers use plastic cases, but they also excel. For example, CREATIVE’s Sound works speakers not only use a plastic case, but also have a small size. The first impression is nothing special, but after the audition comparison, It feels really extraordinary, whether it is the sound, the sound quality has reached the professional level, the bass also has a strong shock, of course, the price is not cheap.
