Hi-Fi, Home Cinema & Wireless Multiroom Subwoofers

A question we get asked frequently "Do I need a subwoofer?" In short....Yes you do. Whether its Hifi, Home Cinema or even wireless multiroom a subwoofer adds a foundation to the sound that makes your experience even more exciting. As we don't want huge Floorstanding speakers dominating our lounge or chosen listening area then it becomes imperative that a subwoofer is added to improve the low end ( Bass ) response. 

For a normal speaker to reproduce the low frequencies of a subwoofer it would need to be huge, thats why subwoofers were invented so that the size of your speaker could be reduced. For home cinema purposes the .1 in the speaker configuration i.e 5.1 or the middle number of an Atmos configuration i.e 5.2.4 denotes the number of subwoofers.

Subwoofers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes from the small style speaker package subwoofers where aesthetics take leading decision on design to reference quality, larger subwoofers such as the SVS PB16 Ultra or the Rel 212/SE. These subwoofers are large but create a performance no other subwoofer can achieve. For the more living room friendly approach the likes of the SVS SB1000, SVS SB4000 or Rel HT/1205 offer a performance far beyond their price would indicate.

There are some key points to consider when choosing a subwoofer :
1. Identify what the main function of your speakers are (Surround Sound or music)—this determines many of the qualities needed in your subwoofer selection. Obviously, an expensive state of the art floorstand speaker that produces good extension and output into the upper 30’s will require a larger, more competent sub than an inexpensive, small bookshelf that just barely gets into the 60Hz range.
2. What are my room dimensions? Large rooms take a lot more power and subwoofer to properly drive this room, where a smaller room may require less power.
3. Ideally, you should be able to identify and call out other room information that has bearing; is the 16’X24’ room open floor plan and gives onto a dining room of an additional 16’X14” and then continues into a hallway (in acoustic terms, a bass trap)?

Obviously we are here to help you with these decisions and as to whether a dual subwoofer setup would be of more benefit to you.
