Using Karaoke functions in Home Theatre Systems will shorten its speakers life?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new here.... Would like ask about the Karaoke functions that comes with the Home Theatre System nowadays..

 

I read that live vocals will damage the speakers of the home theatre systems. But doesn't this contradicts the Karaoke functions that comes with it if their speakers cannot last?

 

Does this means using the Karaoke functions of the HTS will shorten the lifespan of the speakers as compared to getting the mixer/amplifier setup?

 

I don't have high demand on sound. Just thought that with the Karaoke functions available from HTS, its sufficient for the job.

 

Thanks,

Probably if you have singers that really blast into the mic and cause distortion.  After all, an explosion should be just as 'damaging' to a speaker, yes?

 

But seriously, the main issue is to set the sensitivity correctly so that you don't get distortion, or worse clipping as someone tries to go really loud and the amp can't cope.

i would think the inadvertent feedback loops are the main killers of speakers. ;)

 

the music can still go over your regular HT system.

 

better to connect the k-mics to a seperate self powered speakers.

Hifi speakers are designed for the to reproduce the original signal faithfully. If used within their nominal ratings, you should have years of use from them.

 

Karaoke, if you use it right, should work just fine with any speaker, including hifi speakers.

 

The problem is that most users DON'T use it right.

 

They drop the mics on tables, put the mics too near the speakers, creating feedback loops (aka the wwweeeeeeeeeee sound) which can cause untold damage to the speakers.

 

Karaoke speakers aren't designed for fidelity. Looking at the general quality of the singing, I doubt you want a very neutral, transparent reproduction either ;) But they are designed to block off these effects from damaging the speaker drivers.
