What is Subwoofer?
The subwoofer (or "sub") is a speaker designed to play only the
lowest frequencies present in a movie or music recording (the bass). The normal
playback range is of frequencies from approximately 20 Hz to 150-200 Hz. The subwoofer
is tuned with the other speakers in the system so that it plays those frequencies
which can’t be reproduced by the rest of the speaker package. The subwoofer is the
".1" of a 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 channel system because it normally reproduces only about
10% of what has been recorded. Subwoofer boxes come in a many styles, including
sealed, ported and bandpass. Subwoofer Placement As a result of the non-directional
sound that is reproduced by the subwoofer, it can be placed anywhere in the room.
A subwoofers ability to offer good low frequency extension with ample output (power)
for the room (good impact), and yet still offer very good definition (low distortion),
can make or break a home theater or music system.
Why you should add a Subwoofer
Subwoofers are becoming more and more crucial to the home theater experience. Unless
you have a subwoofer, you don't have enough bass. A Subwoofer delivers impact bass
that you can hear and feel. The low frequency foundation of sound is a very important
aspect to the experience, be it in music or in movies (and not just action movies).
Subwoofer adds no clutter to your room at all, taking up less than a cubic foot
of space, but it instantly adds a dimension of deep bass impact to your otherwise
two-dimensional TV-watching experience.
Not all home subwoofers are made the same. If you're serious about home theatre,
you'll certainly want a subwoofer for that all-important bass.
