Subwoofers – Worth It Or Not?

So should you get a subwoofer in addition to your speakers, soundbar or any other type of audio output device?

In my opinion, Yes. You definitely should.

A subwoofer can improve and make your music listening sessions much better and more enjoyable. This is also true when it comes to car speakers.

That’s why, on Audioviser, we dedicated a part of our site to subwoofers. We reviewed many different models, compared them with each other and wrote a few guides on how you should use one, subwoofer placements and many other things.

There are hundreds of different subwoofers you can buy – ranging from car subwoofers, soundbar subwoofers, home theater subwoofers and more.

What are the different types of subwoofers?

There are many different types of subwoofers, and all of them have their own use. Here are the most popular ones:

  • Bandpass subwoofers
  • Passive Radiator Subwoofers
  • Front & Down Firing Subwoofers
  • Active Subwoofers
  • Passive Subwoofers
  • Ported Subwoofers
  • Sealed Cabinet Subwoofers
  • and more..

Before buying one, you need to decide what you will be using the subwoofer for. For example, If you’re a music producer, you’re going to want a sealed subwoofer. If you’re a casual music listener, you’re going to want a passive or active subwoofer.

If you are new to the world of subwoofers and don’t know what to look for, i recommend reading some of our buying guides and other articles on subwoofers.
