Karaoke Speakers


Karaoke Speaker
HiFi speakers are not designed for karaoke. Those who use their home stereo or surround sound speakers to perform karaoke will usually find that live vocals are poor quality and that they distort when with an increase in volume. The reason for this is that HiFi speakers are designed to only reproduce recorded sound. Live vocals require a speaker that can produce sound. PA speakers can reproduce recorded sound as well as produce sound and are necessary for an adequate karaoke system.

Pa speakers can be either active (powered) or passive. Active speakers contain their own amplifier and require only the signal from a mixer or karaoke machine and to be plugged into to an electrical outlet. Passive speakers need an external amplifier and are powered through heavy duty speaker cables. Both are considered to be "full range" speakers which means they can produce a full range of sound from deep bass to high treble. PA speakers typically come in 2-way or 3-way configurations. Some will have a woofer (bass) plus a tweeter horn (highs) and others may also incorporate a mid range driver. A pair of quality 8" 10", 12", or 15" woofer 2-way full range speakers are all you need.

When considering giving PA speakers as a gift you will need to find out the type of system they will be used with. If it is a home stereo system contains a powerful amplifier (600 watts or more) then a pair of passive PA speakers can be used in place of the HiFi speakers when performing karaoke. If the system is not amplified, as when the audio source is connected directly to a TV for example, then a pair of active PA speakers would make a huge difference. Note: Some people do not care if their karaoke is performed in stereo so for these people a single active PA speaker will suffice.

Below are some of the more popular PA speakers used for karaoke. Click the links for complete information.
