Adding a subwoofer is one of the best improvements in sound quality you can make. Even the best component speakers won't give you rich lower frequencies. Without a subwoofer you are literally missing one third of your music. Your speakers can do the highs and the midrange but to truly get full sound you will need a woofer. From a single 8 inch woofer to round out your system and keep all of your trunk space. All the way up to four 15” wo going to ofers in a custom trunk to let the neighborhood know you like bass we can get you taken care of!
SIZE AND QUANTITY
The larger the surface area of the subwoofer, the deeper the notes it can play. However, smaller subs may sound a bit cleaner and may hit harder because they have less mass and can respond more quickly. Multiple subwoofers (2, 3, or even 4) will play more loudly than a single sub and handle higher amounts of power. Ultimately its your musical preference (and your size constraints) that will decide which configuration is best. But remember there is no replacement for displacement.
DVC / SVC
Dual voice coil (DVC) subwoofers have two sets of terminals to allow for wiring flexibility. DVC subs are great for load matching to your particular amplifier, but they are more complicated to wire than single voice coil (SVC) subs. See our how-to section for different wiring options.
