Disorientation bass subwoofer does not mean that players can place anywhere in your listening room will give equivalent results. Selected set point matching subwoofer can make a clear difference in the bass performance of the speaker. Many people choose rather handy solution is to place the subwoofer in the corner, because in this way will the thick bass and largest. But the subwoofer placed in that position will not give detailed bass. In addition to some devices that are needed for installing a subwoofer, an amplifier is also necessary. Because this is quite an important equipment, you should take a careful consideration in the best car amplifier for car that is suitable and fit your car as well as your subwoofer in a properly way.
- Best way to set the subwoofer
With small subwoofer (diameter less than 20 cm), the best position is to set the main speakers about 0,9-1,2m. Placing the subwoofer too far is harder for it to bring the feeling that the bass is generated from the speaker system. In the process of positioning subwoofers, one should turn to high volume to figure out how to score big bass, but still the most richly detailed.
In some cases, after having put in many positions, the bass is not as detailed as desired, players can consider the following solution:
- Listening chair lift out of position and put the sub into it, turn on a movie or music have more bass at high volumes.
- Next, let’s go around the room to the point where players want to put that in most speakers (subjective).
- Finally, is moving in a straight line from the sub listening position to that point. When moving the speakers, listen to locate the bass can sound the most powerful and detailed, fixed and speakers there.
- Fitting and adjustment
Normally the rear subwoofers had several buttons, jacks with various parameters. This arrangement can make the “heathen” with audio momentarily confused. But if you look closely can see quite clearly the functions and simple. How to play the simplest and effective as signal wiring from the amplifier / preamplifier to the line “Sub in” rear subwoofer (or in some sub-topic is LFE / Direct / Bypass …).
Next, push the cut frequency knob points to the highest level. In some lines of subwoofers allow changes in the frequency range from 40Hz to about 200Hz wide. Players need to carefully study the specifications of the main speakers and subwoofer on this aspect in order to select an appropriate threshold for cutting frequency subwoofer. One way to estimate the relative frequency selection cut on the subwoofer level to match the main speakers are as follows: Threshold 150-200 Hz as the main speaker bass 5-8cm in diameter; 80Hz or 100Hz threshold for the main speaker bass 10-13cm in diameter; 60Hz or 80Hz threshold with large bookshelf speakers or speaker’s slender columns.
Rocker phase (phase), as well as one of the important adjustment button on the subwoofer, subwoofers, and speakers by the system can “sing” when they are synchronized – meaning that the speaker’s woofers pair the main speakers and subwoofer motion / out simultaneously. To test the speakers can operate in phase with each other is not, turn on loud music with more bass software and listen to the “sweet spot” for about a minute. At the same time, arrange to sit slight correction phase rocker 0/180 subwoofer located on site. Benchmarking is when people hear that the system found in the most bass. In cases where the listener does not feel the difference when tuning at any point from 0 to 180, leave the button in position 0.
The final step is to adjust the volume of the sub. Some people are “addicted” to the bass (bass freak) can push a little-known sub greater than the overall level of the main speakers. Meanwhile, the system will lose the balance in favor of the band and bass. If you want absolute precise adjustments, players need the support of volume measuring instruments professional in studio or lab.
