How to make speakers louder without an amp?

How about increasing the volume of the loudspeaker without using an amplifier? Check out the methods below!

Make A Speaker Louder
  • Verify equalizer preferences

Most audio sources feature an equalization that may be used to change the sound’s bass and treble. You can change the equalizer’s settings to increase the loudspeaker’s volume.

  • Make use of high-quality cable

The loudness and sound quality might be affected by the cabling used to connect the speaker to the audio source. Using a high-quality cable can enhance and amplify the sound.

  • Employ additional subwoofers

You can purchase an additional subwoofer if you want louder speakers but don’t want to buy a new amplifier. They are designed specifically to recreate low-frequency sounds between 20 and 200 Hz. The subwoofer will aid in reproducing the bass and greatly boost the loudspeaker’s volume.

  • Connect several loudspeakers simultaneously

You can utilize this technique if you have a speaker that can connect to other speakers. Amplification of the sound will be quicker and more effective if it is played simultaneously on several speakers.

  • Overseal the loudspeaker’s outer edges

You can use electrical tape or spongy foam to cover the loudspeaker cut-outs’ edges. It will help to strengthen the seal and stop the passage of sound and air. This could lead to a more robust, clearer, and smoother sound with less chance of warping and cancellation.

  • Set the speakers down on the ground

It has been demonstrated that placing your speakers on the floor as opposed to a table or couch would provide better sound. This enables a continuous vibration flow, which produces louder and better sounds.

  • Place the loudspeaker in a big box

Larger boxes will have more air volume, which will allow sound waves to move more quickly and loudly. From there, it can support loudspeaker amplification.

  • Remove surrounding obstructions

Some items can block or absorb sound, lowering the loudspeaker’s volume. Eliminating obstacles can increase loudspeaker volume and enhance sound quality.
