This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.

The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.

This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

    FAQ Frequently asked questions in All Component Car Subwoofers

    Component car subwoofers are specialized speakers designed to reproduce low-frequency sound, commonly known as bass, in a car audio system. Unlike full-range speakers, component subwoofers are dedicated solely to producing deep and powerful bass tones, enhancing the overall audio experience by providing rich and impactful low-end frequencies.
    Component car subwoofers work by moving air to create low-frequency sound waves. When an electrical signal is sent to the subwoofer's voice coil, it generates a magnetic field that interacts with the fixed magnet, causing the voice coil to move back and forth. This movement, in turn, pushes and pulls the subwoofer's cone, creating air pressure variations that produce bass sound waves.
    Using component car subwoofers offers several benefits. They enhance the audio system's bass performance, adding depth and impact to music, movies, and other audio content. Subwoofers allow you to experience the full range of frequencies in your favorite tracks, making the listening experience more immersive and enjoyable. They also relieve the main speakers from producing bass frequencies, which can result in cleaner and more accurate sound reproduction overall.
    Choosing the right component car subwoofer involves considering factors like your vehicle's available space, your preferred bass level, and the type of music you enjoy. Pay attention to the subwoofer's size, power handling, and sensitivity ratings, which influence its performance. Match the subwoofer's power handling with your amplifier's capabilities to avoid underpowering or overpowering. Reading user reviews, consulting online resources, and seeking advice from car audio professionals can help you select the appropriate component subwoofer that suits your audio preferences and vehicle setup.
    Installing component car subwoofers can vary in complexity based on your vehicle's wiring, enclosure design, and your familiarity with car audio installation. If you're comfortable with basic car electronics and following instructions, you may be able to handle the installation yourself. However, if the installation involves custom enclosures, complex wiring, or if you're not experienced with these tasks, seeking assistance from a professional car audio installer is recommended. Professionals can ensure proper installation, wiring connections, and acoustic tuning, ensuring that your component subwoofers deliver optimal bass performance while preserving your vehicle's interior integrity.

    All About All Component Car Subwoofers

    All Component Car Subwoofers

    Adding a subwoofer is one of the best modifications you can make to your car stereo. Subwoofers are larger, specialized speakers that can reproduce low-frequency sounds that regular car speakers can't handle.

    Bass For Any Genre

    Whatever you're listening to—rock, hip-hop, jazz, classical, or country—a subwoofer is an absolute must. Instead of being overbearing, bass may give the music a sense of fullness and depth without being overly obnoxious. A subwoofer-equipped audio system does more than just improve sound quality; it also enhances the listener's ability to feel and appreciate the music.

    Car Subwoofer Sizes 

    These low-frequency drivers are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from tight, punchy-sounding 6.5”, 8”, 10”, 12”, and 15” subwoofers up to boomy, bone-rattling 18", and bigger varieties

    Aside from component subwoofer speakers, we also offer powered subwoofer boxes, loaded & empty subwoofer boxes, custom-fit sub boxes, and even marine subwoofers

    Power Handling Diversity 

    It's important to keep in mind the wide range of wattages and voice coil designs available when searching for car subwoofers. While this can make finding the right subwoofer more of a challenge, the end result will be the appropriate sub for your needs rather than a "one-size-fits-all" type.

    For the vast majority of listeners, subwoofers with an RMS power output of 400–800 provide plenty of deep bass without requiring expensive wiring modifications or taking up too much room. 

    Subwoofers with a wattage of 800 or more are typically referred to as SPL (sound pressure level) woofers, and they are made with true bass heads and bass competitions in mind.
