Subwoofer Shopping Tips: Getting More Bang for Your Buck

Any time you upgrade the audio system in your car, you need to think about the subwoofer. This is one of the biggest contrasts between an aftermarket system and a factory system when it comes to both sound and feel. How can you make sure that you get the most from your purchase? Here are a few tips.

  • Invest in a custom housing – If you want your sub to sound right, you need it to be seated tightly. Otherwise, you end up with a terrible rattling sound that detracts from your music rather than enhancing it. This is a job for a professional installer.
  • Frequency response matters – The wattage isn’t the only thing to think about when buying a sub. You also want to check the frequency response. The human ear can hear anything down to about 20 Hz. However, if you want your system to have a heavy thump, you should know that you can feel sounds down to about 4 Hz. It is something to consider when you are selecting your subwoofer. Does the feel mean as much to you as the sound?
