For many people, upgrading a car stereo system is all about the subwoofer. Having that thumping bass can make or break your purchase. So if you want to know how to choose the right sub, here are a few quick tips to help.
- Choose the proper type of subwoofer – The right type of sub for you is going to depend on a few key things such as budget and sound system design. A raw subwoofer will offer clear and powerful sound, but only if you have it installed in a custom enclosure and paired with the right amp. Drop-in subwoofers are also an option if you have an exact fit. You also need to determine if your sub needs to be self-powered or have a separate power supply.
- Check the frequency response – You may only be able to hear down to about 20 Hz, but you can feel down to about 4 Hz. The lower the response range, the deeper your bass will sound and the more you will feel.
- Make sure it is housed properly – The wrong enclosure results in poor sound quality and a terrible rattling sound. You can hear it when someone drives by with an incorrectly housed sub. Having it professionally installed is your best option.
