Question about English (US)

What is the difference between could and could have and I learned that we use 'could have ' to talk about past. In addition to that I know I can use ' could have' to say something was possible ,but did not happened. For example, Why didn't you stay at your house.You could have stayed with a hotel. and I also know ' could ' is used as the past of can. and So I'd like to know which is correct or natural in following sentences.The music was very loud and could be heard from a long way. or The music was very loud and could have been heard from a long way ?Feel free to just provide example sentences.
