The subwoofer is that one piece of audio equipment that adds another dimension to the sound. It gives you a feeling of being in a concert hall or some other place where there are large speakers, rather than your living room. The subwoofer takes care of frequencies below the regular human hearing range. These low-frequency sounds are referred to as bass sounds, and they can be felt as well as heard.
Operating on an ultra-low frequency (50 Hz) range, these speakers are designed specifically to reproduce bass at peak performance levels. A subwoofer is an independent speaker with its own amplifier and enclosure to reproduce the low frequencies in music or film soundtracks with greater clarity and depth. There are several types of subwoofers available in the market today. From small cube Style subwoofers, big and powerful active subwoofers, passive shelf mounted subwoofers to hybrid dual driver designs—we have them all covered here!
