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 a comprehensive line of subwoofers from the most prominent names in the industry that will deliver the decibels. We offer individual subwoofers that are ready to mount, subwoofers in enclosures, powered subwoofers, and subwoofers designed to fit in specific locations like under the seat.

If you are 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. You should keep in mind that 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 and intensity 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 is perfect for any music that requires crisp, clean bass, but it needs 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 to reinforce low bass response. Great for hard-driving music, a ported box requires less power to be loud and 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 save space and have flat frequency response. Free air subwoofers are easier to install on some vehicles thanks to the lack of a box, but they will not deliver the performance of subwoofers enclosed in a box.

    For vehicles with space limitations, there are several subwoofer options. A powered subwoofer has an amplifier and a subwoofer in the same enclosure. You only have to find space for one component and installation is as easy as one-two-three. 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 vehicle applications or different vehicle areas, including behind the seats in a pickup truck, under the seats, in the cargo area of SUVs, and more. Many of these subwoofers are available on our digital shelves.

    Many subwoofers have a Dual Voice Coil. A DVC has two voice coils, each with separate connections. This provides multiple wiring options to better match and take advantage of the amplifier. 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. Independent wiring is great if you wire 2 DVC subs to a 4-channel amplifier – one voice coil per channel.

    Great Investment
    This is great and the fact that I don't have to plug it in directly into the battery is even better. Literally a plug & play well you have to connect the positive and the negative but what I did I connect it to a cigarette lighter and it works perfect.
