Why Install a Subwoofer?
Why is it vital that you include a subwoofer in your home theater system? Bring the thrill of your favorite action movies into your living room with a quality audio installation from Andrus Smart Technologies. Subwoofers produce low frequencies, ranging anywhere between 20 and 200 Hz, making the lowest notes and sounds for a varied audio experience. Without a subwoofer as part of your sound system, you’ll leave out essential sounds such as kick drums, bass guitars, pipe organs, and sound effects like explosions. A subwoofer will allow you to feel these sounds, just as the composer or director intended. Although subwoofers tend to be large because they require a big cabinet to produce low notes with high volume, a good subwoofer can make even the most modest audio systems feel like a commercial cinema.
Proper Subwoofer Placement
Subwoofer placement can pose a challenge to homeowners who are installing their system; we recommend partnering with a professional to ensure that you get the best performance out of your audio system. The problem arises because we often have to compromise between where it looks best and where it sounds best; after all, no one wants a bulky speaker in the middle of their living room. However, if your subwoofer is too close to a flat wall, you may experience harsh rumbling and other unpleasant sounds. When you work with our team, we will carefully evaluate the layout of your space and determine the best place to install your subwoofer, as well as the rest of your speakers, for both form and function.
Andrus Smart Technologies partners with some of the top-leading manufacturers in the audio-video industry. One of those brands, KEF, offers superior subwoofers for a variety of applications. KEF subwoofers use a proprietary equalizer that counteracts placement issues by adjusting the low-frequency output based on obstacles such as walls, corners, or cabinets. They can also be adjusted for homes that are close together, allowing you to get a memorable bass response without disturbing your neighbors.
Andrus Smart Technologies can do more than help you to select a subwoofer. We can work with you to create the perfect home theater system for your space and budget and create a customized design for your project.
