What is a Subwoofer?

Most people know that subwoofers produce low notes and bass, but they are still unsure why they should add a subwoofer to their home theater system or next to their stereo speakers. For many people, the first step into the subwoofer world comes after not being able to find the necessary entertainment due to the lack of a subwoofer in a cinematic scene that requires the room to shake.

What Should I Consider When Choosing a Subwoofer?

Most people think that the factor that really matters is the size of the subwoofer - the bigger the better. But this isn't always true, and size shouldn't always be the main consideration when choosing a subwoofer - design and build quality are just as important. Deep and powerful bass response is not something only big and bulky subwoofers can achieve.

Subwoofers, like any speaker, produce bass by moving air. That's why design and driver performance are decisive factors for a great experience. Before you buy, it's best to know exactly what you need for your space: a 10" or 12" driver can provide deep bass in a medium-sized room, but you'll also need to consider how the subwoofer will integrate with your other speakers. However, a properly designed subwoofer with a driver as small as 6.5", such as the soccer-ball-sized KEF KC62 subwoofer , can perfectly reproduce the low notes every movie and audiophile wants to hear.

When choosing a subwoofer for music or movies, it's important to choose a design that fits your room and is packed with innovative technologies that can bring out the details and add depth and texture to the sound.
