Subwoofer News

How low can you (or your home theater system) go? This is where a subwoofer comes in. Known in the more geeky, home theater circles as an LFE channel, a subwoofer can do low frequency bass performance in ways that even the biggest home theater speakers simply can not do. Surround sound enthusiasts love what a sub (or two or three) can do for their system's power. Audiophiles are sometimes off-put by subwoofers, but these big-box speakers offer true power to an audio system. Read below for news on everything subwoofer from companies like Velodyne, JL Audio, SVS, Revel, Bowers & Wilkins, Paradigm and many others.
