Subwoofers & Boxes

Designed for Optimum Sound Performance

Subwoofers are all about bass. But to get the bass tone you want depends on a lot of factors including power, space, enclosure, sensitivity, impedance, and number of voice coils. No matter what configuration you decide on, we have the subwoofers that will deliver the decibels. We offer individual subwoofers that are ready to mount, subwoofers in enclosures, amplified subwoofers, and subwoofers designed to fit in specific locations like under the seat.

If you’re looking for loudness, choose a subwoofer that can handle a lot of power and pair it with the amplifier that can deliver that power. The RMS, or continuous power, rating should match the output of the amplifier. However, there are other factors to consider. The subwoofer’s impedance must be compatible with the amplifier’s capability. And a subwoofer with a higher sensitivity rating won’t need as much power to produce the desired level of sound.

The other element in subwoofer sound quality is the enclosure. Three types of enclosures are generally available and each produces different bass tones. A sealed, airtight enclosure will deliver crisp, clean bass, but requires a powerful amplifier if you also want a lot of volume. However, this type of enclosure is the most compact, so it’s a good choice if you have space limitations. A ported enclosure has an opening in the box called a port. A ported box requires less power to be loud and it delivers a deeper bass tone than a sealed box. Ported boxes are usually much larger than sealed enclosures.

The bandpass box is the 3rd type of enclosure and it incorporates elements of the previous two. The subwoofer is mounted in a sealed box, with a ported chamber in front of the speaker cone. Choose a bandpass box if you want maximum bass volume. There are also subwoofers that can be mounted on the package shelf behind the rear seat, with the trunk acting as the enclosure. These are called free air subwoofers and are specifically designed for the application. They are easier to install on some vehicles, but they will not deliver the performance of subwoofers enclosed in a box.

Low Profile Shallow Mount and Tube Subwoofer Systems

For vehicles with space limitations, there are several subwoofer options. An amplified subwoofer has an amplifier and subwoofer in the same enclosure. You only have to find space for one component and installation is simplified. There is no need to match an amplifier with a subwoofer and the right enclosure. All components have been designed to work together and wiring is much easier. There are also subwoofers that are designed for specific vehicles or different vehicle areas, including behind the seats in a pickup truck, under the seats, and in the cargo area of SUVs. Many of these are available amplified.

Many subwoofers have a Dual Voice Coil. A DVC has two voice coils, each with separate connections. This provides multiple wiring options for the best performance in different setups. In general, an amplifier will produce more power when the subwoofer has low impedance. When wired in parallel, the overall impedance is less than each individual coil, so you’ll get the most output from an amp. Wiring in series enables more than one subwoofer to be connected to an amplifier, with the right impedance to match the amp. Each voice coil can also be wired independently to separate channels of an amplifier.

Guides & Articles
In this article, we'll focus on subwoofers and the enclosures (or "boxes") they may be housed in. But first, we'll clarify the differences between a subwoofer and a woofer. Both these terms are often mixed up, creating confusion about functions these components serve.

The sub looks sweet and went in really easily. With the 400 watt power handling and the amp in my 2002 Ford Focus SVT at 290 watts, I thought it would be a little quieter than the original. I was proven wrong when it was louder and clearer than the original sub in the car. It was insanely easy to install with the slip on wire terminals and included hole template. Plus for the, it was far beyond what I expected. Great sub for the beginner who loves great sound or even the expert who wants a quick improvement.
