You might as well face it, your audience is addicted to bass. We all are. There is nothing like the hum of bass coming in through your feet as you hit the dance floor, or listen to your favourite rock song. A PA subwoofer is that magical piece of equipment that will give you the bass boost you’ve been dreaming about.
Adding a subwoofer to your existing setup isn’t difficult, and can be done on just about any budget. There are powered options, also known as active subwoofers, if you don’t have a power amp. Just plug any of our active subs into the bass output and you’re ready to go. Or, if your setup is already powered, there are passive options available too.
Sourcing power from an external amp gives you extra control and allows you to have a lighter weight subwoofer (as these bad boys can already get pretty heavy due to the heft of bass modules). Whatever option you go for, active or passive, there are loads of great products in our extensive range.
Next up you will want to consider how big you need your subwoofer to be. Are you trying to shake the room? Or just add a little hum to the house? If you are using a power amp, it will have an optimal wattage and ohms requirement that will help you decide which sub is right for you. Speaker sizes range from 5 to 18 inches, so matching to your system won’t be a problem.
The subwoofers on the market these days come with a huge range of awesome features. You can find built in protection, DSP effects and advanced filters to customise your output. Some brands and models also have the ability to save presets, and even control your mixing via your tablet or device via WiFi. The future has arrived!
Lastly, you need to think about the practicality of the subwoofer you are interested in, like how it is mounted, and if it comes with a stand? Many woofers have integrated pole sockets and mounting stands.
