Types Of Active Bookshelf Speaker
There are two main types of active bookshelf speaker systems.
2.0: These systems consist of two speakers, usually one master speaker with built in amplifier and one passive speaker. This is the most common for computers, HiFi audio etc. You’ll get a great stereo sound quality. One of the most popular 2.0 speakers is the Edifier R1280DB - amazing sound quality, great price and feature packed!
2.1: These systems consist of the same two speakers as above but also feature a subwoofer for extra bass. These systems are great for use with computers, especially if you like gaming. Don’t forget that you can add a separate subwoofer to quite a few of our bookshelf speakers as some of the 2.0 models will have much greater sound quality, such as the Airpulse A100
