Subwoofers (Part 1): Which sub should you get (that works best with your speakers)?

hedd audio & acoustics insider

Are you thinking you need some more "oomph" when you're mixing?

The low end just isn't cutting it, and whenever you take your mixes to a bigger system you think:

"Damn, I wish I could hear that bass in my studio.."

So you've been eyeing the different subwoofers on the market. But holy smokes, those things get expensive.

Maybe a cheap one will do the trick too..?

Some of the more budget friendly brands offer more price conscious products after all...

But are they any good? Which size should you get?

And will they play nice with your speakers?

In this first part of a two-parter on subwoofers I want to show you what it comes down to when picking a subwoofer so you can be sure you're getting it right from the start:



"How to correctly place your listening position and speakers, no matter what room you're in."

  • Find the correct wall to face in your home studio
  • Optimize the low end and minimize reflection effects
  • Get the distance between wall and speakers right
  • Get a stereo image like on really good headphones
