Placement And Installation Tips For Setting Up A Subwoofer
Anybody who is into gaming already knows how awesome subwoofers can be. However, if you are new to this by-product of tech genius and want to explore its potential to enhance the audio/visual field of your room or home, then there are certain things you ought to know. Let’s get started on all things subwoofers and how they can enhance your A/V experience.
What Is A Subwoofer?
A subwoofer is a speaker that produces low-frequency sounds, typically below 100 Hz. It is an important component of any sound system because it adds depth and power to the sound. A good subwoofer can make a small car stereo or home theater system seem like it has much more bass than it actually does.
The best subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep bass without distortion at all frequencies, which means they have a very flat response curve and don’t add extra bass at other frequencies. This is what gives them that iconic depth-of-field enhancement sound that we all love at movie theatres.
Setting Up A Subwoofer
The first thing you need to do is find a good place for your subwoofer. This can be in the front or back of your vehicle, but make sure that it is not too close to any other speakers; moreover, no objects should block the sound. However, specialized subwoofers require settings according to the sound quality production. For instance, if you have an aftermarket stereo system, you should consult your dealer about how to set up a subwoofer so it will work properly.
Similarly, if you are using an OEM stereo system, then there are some things that you can do on your own. Like, ensure that everything is plugged in properly and set as per the instructions.
Placement Is Key
It doesn’t matter how good your speakers are. If you don’t place them correctly, they will sound bad. If you want to get the best out of your subwoofer, you must place it where it can be heard properly. The ideal position for a subwoofer would be somewhere near the front wall or on the side walls behind your main speakers.
This is because most of us listen to music at home, which doesn’t guarantee that we have our heads facing the speakers while listening to music. If you put your subwoofer too close to the main speaker or even directly in front of the living space where you listen to music, it will not perform as intended.
Subwoofers are a great tool to enhance the whole vibe of a room or space. Thanks to RGB lights, the whole experience has become even more sensory loading because it grabs your attention with the lights flickering and performing according to the sound. If you want to invest in a subwoofer, this is your sign to go ahead and get it.
