How large a subwoofer should I choose?
This is a common question. The size and quantity of subwoofers is related to the size of the audio system, but most importantly, the size of the room. Subwoofers need to be treated differently as bass frequencies react to the room in a very different manner than midrange and treble frequencies. Bass travels in all directions, and escapes into other rooms through doorways and openings. The ultimate choice for subwoofer size depends on your listening room. The larger the room, the larger the subwoofer needed to energize the room, or multiple smaller subwoofers can be an option.
