6. Subwoofers > 6.1. Hacks 48–54

Hacks 48–54

Ah, the rumble of a ’65 Mustang’s engine; the sound of a jet fighter flying overhead; nuclear explosions that rattle your teeth. These are the effects that most of us live for in a movie theater and desperately try to reproduce in a home theater. The key to all of these effects is, of course, the bass in your system—specifically, the subwoofer (or subwoofers) that you’re using. Even more exciting, room size (and a healthy dose of physics) allows you to go beyond sheer reproduction. Commercial theaters rarely can produce clean bass at under 30 Hz due to their size, but smaller home theaters actually can produce bass at 30 Hz, and even below 20 Hz, with authority. Of course, all of this depends on the right sub (woofer) and the right setup.
