Places That Buy Subwoofers

Subwoofers make all music sound better. No matter what kind of music you like, or how softly or loudly you like to listen, a quality sub can really improve your overall listening experience. This article will explain how to find the subwoofer and bass system that's right for you.

I want a sub that will blend in with my car's interior.You're a prime candidate for a vehicle-specific sub, either powered or unpowered. These subs are designed to fit in out-of-the-way locations in many cars, trucks, and SUVs, and are often color-matched to the vehicle's interior. Like the powered subs we just talked about, they may not be the best choice if you're looking for really big bass, but they'll more than suffice for most listening needs without taking up a lot of interior space.

In an actual listening room, you'd find that some speakers play louder than others when fed the same amount of power. In equal power mode, you'll hear these differences in loudness as they naturally occur between speakers.

Subwoofers have gotten a bad reputation as being eyesores, space hogs, and booming bass boxes that only serve to annoy the neighbors. But a lot has changed over the past few years. There are now subwoofers of nearly every size and shape. In this video, we make the case for why you need a subwoofer and cover the different types of subwoofers available that might work best for your needs.

In-wall subwoofers need to be professionally installed with special boxes that are designed to hold the subwoofer cabinet in place and isolate it from the rest of the room. Done properly, it can be an effective solution. One thing to remember: In-wall subwoofers are really expensive because they often require external amplification, crossovers, and a lot of labor to install them properly.

Note: Some subwoofers are relatively hands-off, with few settings available for consumers to manually change. Others have an array of dials and toggles to adjust. Do what you can with what you have, based on our instructions here.

It may be tempting to go for the largest sub you can find. But bigger is not always better. It's important that your sub blends in seamlessly with your other speakers to create an immersive listening experience.

The question of "how much sub should I get?" is a personal consideration. I'm really into dinosaur and spaceship movies, so I like bass that thunders and makes my room quake. I went through several smaller subs before landing on my current 12" Klipsch, which suits my room and taste for bass perfectly.

So how much power do you actually need? Honestly, there's no cut-and-dry answer to that (and I'm not sure boring you with the engineering details is helpful). But generally speaking, the higher the amp's wattage, the more powerful and impactful the bass. My advice is to go for as much power as your budget allows, but don't overspend for higher wattage just for the sake of a bigger number.

Ported boxes (or bass reflex enclosures) have a built-in air vent that helps reinforce low bass output. You'll typically get more powerful bass from a ported enclosure without needing as much power. But there's a tradeoff: ported boxes can be considerably larger than their sealed box counterparts.

Some subs use passive radiators to reinforce bass output. These are unpowered cones within the sub enclosure that move in tandem with the powered driver. Passive radiators add extra "oomph" to the subwoofer's output without increasing the sub's amplifier size.

Don't forget that you'll need to connect your sub to an outlet for power, as well as to your receiver for signal. Check out my article on home theater speaker placement for tips on arranging your system.

Quick story: my living room has glass bookshelf and fireplace doors, along with tall windows that line three of its walls. All of these used to rattle like crazy when bass hit during movies. It drove me nuts!

One day I decided that I'd had enough. I bought an isolation platform to decouple my sub from the hardwood floor. Voila! Just like magic, the rattling and vibrations instantly disappeared. I even had to dial the sub back because the bass was suddenly stronger. It is without a doubt the best money I've ever spent on my system.

Home theater receivers use an RCA output for their subwoofer connection (that's the ".1" in a 7.1 system). Some receivers have two subwoofer outputs, which let you easily add a second sub to your system.

Using two subs improves bass distribution around your room, which is especially helpful if you have multiple seating locations. A dual-sub setup is also a great way to go if you crave lots of bass in your room. Here are home theater receivers that have two subwoofer outputs.

Earlier I mentioned that your sub needs to connect to your home theater receiver for signal. Usually this means running and concealing a long cable from one part of the room to another (everyone's favorite, right?).

The SB-1000 Pro has line- and speaker-level inputs and line-level outputs. Thus, it can connect to any receiver or preamp with a subwoofer output or a spare line output, and it can also connect directly to speakers or an amp in systems that have no subwoofer or line outputs.

The standby power consumption for our subwoofer picks is rated at 1 watt or less for the Rogersound Labs Speedwoofer 10S MKII and the Hsu Research VTF-2 MK5, and at 0.5 watt for the Polk Audio HTS 10 and the SVS SB-1000 Pro. Those numbers are in the same range as the standby power consumption of a typical TV set. To put it all in perspective, at a rate of 20 per kilowatt hour, a device that consumes 1 watt of standby power adds $1.75 per year to your electrical bill if you never turn it on. Of course, both the electrical consumption and the cost increase the more often you use the subwoofer and the louder you play it.

Sound United, the parent company of Polk Audio, says that it is currently working to create and implement a set of sustainability policies, and that the HTS 10 and its packaging are not made from recycled materials and are not recyclable.
