The sensitivity of the mic in my citation 100 is to low. Any way to change this? As it is now it hardly pics up the Hey Google command, while my Google home mini picks up the command even if it is placed far away (in a different room).

Asked by: Micke57
The sensitivity of the mic is highly dependent on the placement of the speaker in the room. Try your harman device in the same place as the Google home mini and see if it picks up your voice better.

If I have 2 Citation 100, can I use these as surround speakers connecting with a laptop? That said, one for right and another one for left.

Asked by: Jinho
The CITATION 100 speakers cannot be used as part of a surround sound system. However, they can be used as a pair of stereo speakers. This can be done in the Google Home app.

How would the audio from the Citation 100 and One compare to the Invoke? I'm not too familiar with audio specs, but based on numbers it seems the Invoke might have better sound quality, I already have an Invoke, I'm just curious as to the comparison.

Asked by: dylanfreston
Both the Citation 100 and Citation ONE inside have one woofer and tweeter, with an output power of 50W RMS and 40W RMS respectively. However, the Invoke on the other hand has 3 woofers and 3 tweeter with an output power of 40W RMS. All three speakers were designed for different uses. The Invoke was designed to be a stand alone unit. While the Citation speakers can be paired with another speaker.

Can 2 citation 100 be paired with the citation soundbar and sub woofer for surround sound

Asked by: Jay D
The Citation 100 can be paired with the citation soundbar but it would not be set up as a surround sound. For the set up that you want, you'll need the Citation soundbar, Citation subwoofer, and the Citation surround to get the surround sound.
