What To Think About With...Radio Ceiling Speakers

We have a wide range of listening to the radio with our Radio Ceiling Speakers; some options may suit you down to the ground, however there may be some that will not live up to what you need it to do.

From simple basic FM radios with ceiling speakers through to a more extensive audio system incorporating radio, Bluetooth and other sources, we want to go through and highlight what it is you need to think about before you decide to make your purchase and install - at BuyCleverStuff, we pride ourselves on helping our customers find their perfect solution, and we hope this short guide can help do that.

  • Purpose

Ceiling speakers typically, allow you to fill whatever room with fantastic audio. Fitting speakers into your ceiling space, has another advantage, as it keeps everything out of the way, and you will hardly notice them when you walk into the room - as a result of ceiling speakers, gone are the days of bulky noticeable Hi-Fi speakers on table tops or side cabinets.

Having radio integrated into a system allows you to tune in to your favourite stations with just a touch of a button, and you can relax and enjoy great audio around your room thanks to the system you choose, whether you want a simple solution for your kitchen or bathroom to give you background audio, or a broader setup to give you more options, radio ceiling speakers can suit a number of needs.

  • Size of room / speakers

The size of room and speakers, and the number of speakers, play a significant part of the decision you will have to make before purchasing.

You will be having to cut holes into your ceiling at some point, so it is far better to get this decision right now instead of having to make changes and modifications at a later date.

Consider what you wish to do with your audio system. Is this for your own personal needs in your kitchen or bathroom, or will you be planning to host dinner parties and functions where audio will almost become the centre piece itself?

We have 2", 2.5", 5" and 6" speaker sizes available, and can either work in a single pair or in two pairs, again depending on the size of room you wish to install these in, and also what you require the system to do.

  • Functions

All of our radio ceiling speakers at BuyCleverStuff come as standard with FM tuners, however as you may be aware, DAB is on the rise, allowing for more stations and a clearer sound (if in a good reception area).

KB Sound offer a number of smaller Radio Ceiling Speaker Systems, which are basic FM (Basic and Plus) or FM / DAB tuners (Premium). The Premium in this range also expands to allow for a 3.5mm jack stereo input for other sources.

Radio through these systems can be controlled in a number of ways, either via an in-wall panel and remote control. Some of our Radio Ceiling Systems include the option to connect Bluetooth devices to even further widen your audio offering, allowing personal music or music streaming apps to be connected and played.

Presets can be installed into these systems, so your favourite stations can be accessed easily and without trawling through frequencies every time you turn the unit on or off.

  • Appearance

Radio Ceiling Speakers can be very discreet, with very small speakers installed alongside a slimline remote control, through to a fitted panel in-wall that can be controlled directly or even again via a remote.

With our KB Sound Plus and Premium units, the ability to choose speaker colours to complement other design features in your room is optional, whilst the majority of our speakers across our range at BuyCleverStuff are white. This allows for a discreet, and unobtrusive look for your room, meaning the only real stand out feature will be any panel fixed into your wall. However, again, most are designed with homes in mind.

KLAB20D and KLAB20DB In Wall Amplifiers are also similar to the white in-wall stylings of the KB Sound range, and include moisture-resistant fascias.

Our other offering when it comes to in-wall panel is the E200. Sleek in design with its LED screen and brushed steel touch function buttons, it can be installed into most rooms without cause for concern where look and style is of issue.

KB iSelect, with its discreet remote control, means that you'll hardly notice it is in the room with you and is a small piece of hardware that is no different from other remotes you may use around the home.

The Tenor Illuminated Mirror, featuring both FM and DAB radio tuner (which can be used in conjunction with a separate ceiling speaker), may stand out somewhat, but is a great feature piece to include in a room, and has that added bonus of being an integrated audio system.

These four main aspects that we have now evaluated and considered hopefully will make purchasing a Radio Ceiling Speaker system that little bit easier and give you more of a sense of what you require.
