A subwoofer is a speaker (usually considerably bigger than your standard speaker) that responds to the deepest bass rumbles in your music, and thus improves the fidelity of what you hear, even in some cases (particularly the better drum n bass tunes) it brings out bits you can't even hear through normal speakers.

How do I know if a speaker is "blown"?


would an upgrade help...or be the same?

A sub woofer is a loud speaker that reproduces the low end
(bass) sounds. It usually covers a range from 20hz to 150hz.
As the guys mention above it needs an acoustic box which
depends on the size (diametre) of the sub woofer. The box will
isolate the front sound waves from the rear. Without the box
the woofer‘s diaphragm will go back and forth without producing
the desired deep notes. Once in the box, only the front diaphragm
will push air out and the rear movement, isolated from the front,
will not affect the and cancel out the front waves. The diametre
of the sub woofer can vary but usually is 12/16 inches for a large
system. The sound is produced by pre-amplifier which sends the
sound signals to an amplifier. A large woofer requires a powerful
amplifier, then to a crossover which divides the the sound waves
into three frequencies (or more) and sends the lower end to the
woofer, the mid range to a compatible speaker and the top end
goes to a tweeter (normally self isolating). A large woofer also
requires a large acoustical box and a large room.

What are the best speakers if i want to have bass in my car?? HELLLPPP?

So, you see that it is not that simple to only buy a woofer. This
is the old classical way of reproducing sound. There are other methods but more expensive. The woofer can be found in a good sound shop. I don‘t know where you are, so Google your area and you will find one. Be careful not to fall into a wise salesman‘s hands because he will try to sell you the most expensive and a good woofer can be quite

I'm a Car audio newbie. Can someone please give me detailed directions how to install a car amp and then subs?

but first, go to your local journalist and buy a sound magazine.

You will have noticed that I have not mentioned any brand names.
This has it‘s purpose, because you will not find the best in a small
village. Now, I wish you good luck and, if you follow the above
rules, you will get your value for money and the correct equipment.
Cheers, Iain

Go to halfords. They do a pack that includes a subwoofer mounted in box and an amplifier. With a wiring kit this is everything your partner will need, although his car strereo will need to have a 'pre amp output' on it. If you make a note of the make and model number next time you are in his car the helpfull people in halfords will be able to tell you if it has the required pre amp out put. Alternatively you could contact any of the car audio companies that sell online and they will be able to tell you.
