How to increase volume of speaker without amplifire? Answered

I have f&d f3800X 5.1 speaker. 5 satellite speakers are of 10 watts and the sub-woofer 30 watts. All works fine, but the rear pair of speakers makes low sound. Can i change the speakers with high watt speakers to get more sound?


Unless your amp can deliver more wattage than the speakers are designed to drive, probably not.

FWIW, One way to increase the effective volume of a smart phone or small single speaker gizmo like a bluetooth speaker is to place it in a cup or bowl, which in part can act as a resonator and in part as a directional element.

sit closer to the speakers.

Maybe you can find a more efficient speaker and get more sound energy..

But experience is bigger speakers are less less efficient as the wattage goes up !

+1 You may be better off and cheaper trying to improve the enclosure.


I have only 15W in the front and 10 in the back but enough power to make the windows vibrate.
But then again, a single speaker of mine was close to $200 when they were new....
