Bose Makes Push To Enter Kitchen Appliance Market

You’ve probably heard the name associated with high-quality speakers and audio equipment, but kitchen appliances? That’s right, the Bose Corporation seems to be interested in expanding their line of products to include cooktops. What does that mean for the audio giant? See below to learn more:

Bose has been a top name when it comes to the audio speaker and sound system industry for years, but who would have thought they could enter the kitchen appliances industry? They have recently filed a patent application for a “cooktop power control system” that has the ability to change the power of the burners based on desired and actual cookware temperatures.

If they do in fact create an induction cooktop, they will have to face competition from top appliance manufacturers like Samsung and GE.

We’d like to see the outcome of their desire to enter the kitchen appliance industry, but for now we’ll continue to focus on their quality sound systems and speakers.

With state of the art equipment and technology, we provide the crystal clear sound you have been searching for. So when you’re looking for audio equipment for your next event, call on the experts at CitiView Audio Visual!

How To Get Better Sound From Your Speakers

When it comes to listening to your favorite song, there’s nothing worse than having crappy speakers or headphones. While you can spend hundreds of dollars on top-of-the-line equipment, there are a few solutions that won’t cost you a penny. Say goodbye to the days of muffled, distorted sound.

  1. Get Closer: the closer you get to your speakers, the better they will sound. Why? It minimizes the destructive effects of room reflections and tunes out some of the background noise.
  2. Change the Volume: if your speakers or headphones can handle music at high volume, try it out. Sometimes, playing music louder will make it sound better but make sure not to listen at high volume for more than 30 minutes at a time.
  3. Position the Speakers: did you know that positioning speakers with their tweeters at or very close to ear-level can make the audio sound better? If you’re setting up for an event, try to position the speakers so they will be close to the audience’s ear level.

How To Test Speaker Wires and Connections

What’s one of the most common problems with speakers? Their wires get tangled up in a pile and the hardest part is figuring out where they are supposed to go. But you don’t have to spend hours untangling the mess, you can trace the wires with common household batteries.

Speakers and their wires have a positive and negative polarity and so do batteries. Therefore you can hold one speaker wire to one of the batter terminals (using AA or AAA) and hold the other wire to the remaining terminal to find out where they are supposed to go.

To do this, take one of the wires and repeatedly touch and disconnect it from the terminal. You should hear a static sound each time the wire touches the terminal and this will allow you to identify the speaker. It’s a good idea to label each wire with is corresponding speaker so you won’t get them mixed up again.
