Choosing a subwoofer

Picking the best subwoofer takes some level of understanding of audio and electronics. These are some of the most important factors you need to consider when buying a subwoofer:

1. Size

Subwoofers are available in a variety of sizes: they can be as small as 8 inches or as big as 18 inches. The size of subwoofer to get is largely determined by the size of the speakers that you have with your existing sound system. After all, you want the bass to blend in seamlessly with the other speakers, not to overwhelm them. If you have compact satellite speakers, then an 8-inch subwoofer should work perfectly well. Larger subwoofers of up to 12 inches can be used if you have big free-standing speakers.

2. Power

The power supply of a subwoofer provides the amplification for the low-frequency signal that the subwoofer receives. This means that a powered subwoofer does not need a separate amplifier to do its function.

So how much power do you really need? The general rule is: the higher the power wattage, the louder and more powerful your bass can get. This factor pretty much follows the rule of the higher, the better. We recommend getting the subwoofer with the highest power rating that your budget can buy because it is easy enough to tone down the bass as needed.

3. Wired vs. Wireless

Some subwoofers allow you to connect to the AV receiver via Bluetooth, eliminating the need to lay out long lines of audio cables in your home theater. This makes setting up the subwoofer very convenient and you can even change up the positioning of your subwoofer with practically zero difficulty. However, audio purists will argue that a wireless connection is more prone to signal interference and degradation compared to a wired connection. Even standard audio cables are designed to reduce radio interference and degradation with a series of conductors and conducting layers.

If you are interested in pure audio quality, then nothing beats a wired subwoofer. If you are after the convenience of installing and moving around your subwoofer without having to bother with long and heavy audio cables, then you are better off picking a wireless model.

Final thoughts

It can be argued that a home theater system cannot be considered complete without a subwoofer. Having a deep bass adds a layer that just makes the overall sound more complete and fulfilling. This Cyber Monday is the best time to get the subwoofer that will perfectly complement your home theater system. With so many deals and discounts being offered, you’re bound to find the subwoofer that will fit right into your budget and with your existing speaker system.
