Things You Need to Know When Adding a Sub to a Car Stereo System

If you are looking to upgrade your car stereo system, one of the components that you have to be thinking about is the subwoofer. Here are a few things you need to know if you are planning on purchasing a new sub to take your car’s sound system to the next level.

  • Low frequencies are about sound and feel – Humans hear frequencies down to about 20 Hz. So is that the magic number you should be shopping for? A couple of other considerations are that you may be able to hear slightly lower tones than the average person and you can still feel the lower tones even if you can’t hear them. Just remember that those lower tones that are out of the range of hearing may still be able to do damage if you turn your system up too loud.
  • You need to have the sub seated properly – One of the biggest complaints about subwoofers is vibration. When you work with a custom stereo installer, you get the benefit of having the sub installed in a custom housing that won’t rattle.
  • Noise reduction can help – By outfitting your car with noise reducing material, you can have crystal clear sound and play it at a lower volume because you are not competing with road noise or losing as much of your sound through the car body.
