What is the Echo Show 5?
It’s Amazon’s newest Alexa display that was released on June 26. It costs less and is more compact than the Echo Show (2nd Gen), but offers the same capabilities. For more information on the Echo Show 5, check out our complete review.
The Echo Show 5’s rear-facing 4 watt Dolby speaker features improvements in sound quality overall, producing warm yet clear audio, and fixing previous problems such as tinny distortion and unbalanced sound levels found in previous models.
The Echo Show 5 is capable of filling most average-sized rooms with high-quality audio. Be it for alerts, alarms, chatting, streaming music, podcasts or videos, with simple voice commands to tell Alexa to lower or increase the volume, change stations, or play your favorite hits.
How can I make the Echo Show 5 even louder?
It’s possible to add additional speakers to the Amazon Echo Show 5 via 3.5 mm stereo hard-wire connection or Bluetooth. This can increase volume in a single space or a direct feed to Bluetooth enabled headphones. It can also spread the sound and responsive area to other rooms or areas within the Bluetooth network or hard-wire range, with no quality or volume loss. As well, the Echo Show 5 can be paired with other Echo devices to create a multi-room soundscape experience.
If you want more volume without buying more speakers, you can place the Echo Show 5’s rear-facing speaker with its back directly facing a wall or a corner. This will amplify the sound coming from the 1.65″ full-range built-in speaker dramatically, without interfering with quality, signal, or responsiveness to spoken commands.
While the precise kHz and decibel levels for the Echo Show 5 have not yet been released, we will be sure to update you as they are revealed.
