Do You Need External Speakers For Your Projector?

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-09

Introduction

Sound is best appreciated when produced through an output that delivers its purest form. You can appreciate the sound, hear low and insignificant sounds better, and easily remain glued to your screen when watching a movie with reverberating, room-filling audio from external speakers.

Powerful home theater projectors have built-in speakers enhanced with advanced audio features like Dolby and DTS, delivering similar sound quality as external speakers, helping you save cost, and giving you an easy setup. 

This article will compare built-in projector speakers to external speakers and recommend XGIMI projectors like HORIZON Pro, AURA, and HORIZON for their built-in Harman Kardon speakers that create an immersive audio experience.

Conclusion

Built-in projector speakers and external speakers come with unique upsides and downsides. External speakers can deliver powerful HiFi sound, but they can be expensive and not too easy to set up. Built-in projector speakers help you save cost while also packing features that can produce excellent surround sound but may not be loud enough for large audiences and noisy environments.

XGIMI HORIZON Pro, AURA, and HORIZON have professional Harman Kardon built-in speakers which produce excellent, theater-quality sound for an engaging viewing experience. They also have ports and are compatible with Bluetooth, allowing users to connect external speakers.
