5 Tips to Choosing a Good Subwoofer for Your Car

A car subwoofer has the ability to transform the sound in your car into something you will enjoy. Most vehicles come with small stereo speakers which most of the time don’t do the music you listen to your car justice. Adding a subwoofer can improve the quality of music especially if you are the kind of person who enjoys listening to music as you drive. There are different types of subwoofers on the market and choosing the right one may be confusing at times. Here are a few tips on how you can never go wrong when choosing a subwoofer for your car.

1. Power

The first thing which you may want to check is the subwoofer power; this will depend on the kind of power that you are looking for. If you want a subwoofer that has a very high boom then there is no substitute for power. The part you need to be paying attention to is the RMS rating, this is what will give you an idea of the kind of power that you can expect. One thing to make sure is that you need to confirm is the subwoofer power can match with the output of our vehicle.

2. Size

The next thing which you need to consider when shopping for a woofer is the size. However, the size of the woofer will boil down to personal preference and the space in the car that the owner is looking to spare. Another issue with size is the debate that a bigger size subwoofer produces the loudest noise. To put the debate to rest if you are looking for a powerful subwoofer and you have space to spare then it’s advisable to go for a much bigger subwoofer.

3. Check Online Reviews

There is no great place to know how a certain subwoofer operates than the review section. Many sellers will have a review section where customers can leave their feedback on their opinion regarding the subwoofer.  Once you have settled on the kind of subwoofer you want, you need to check the reviews and JL audio 10W3v3 subwoofer review is one of the good places to start.

4. Sensitivity

Another key consideration when it comes to selecting the best subwoofer is to check the sensitivity. The subwoofer sensitivity goes hand in hand with the power.  A subwoofer which has a high sensitivity will require much lower power and is much powerful. If not sure about sensitivity ask to determine which kind of sensitivity meets your listening needs.

5. Enclosure

The next thing you need to consider is the enclosure type; this is because the type of enclosure will determine the deepness of the voice that you get. A great tip to keep in mind is that the sealed enclosed box in a subwoofer will give you more bass and more depth in sound quality. The next tip to keep in mind is that ported enclosure will give you the loudest volume.

    I think it’s always better to try and see how the car audio system sounds before purchasing it. My pioneer system works fine after almost a decade of usage. No issue at all except I don’t like that much bass anymore haha.
