Subwoofer Reviews

No audiophile system nor home theater system is complete without at least one subwoofer, also known as a LFE or point one channel. Setting up a subwoofer used to require a lot of guess work, but modern subwoofers tend to feature internal amps, EQ systems, and room correction software. With all these settings, it's easy to set up your subwoofer to integrate with your floorstanding speakers or your bookshelf speakers. Look below for a complete list of reviews of the best subwoofers from brands like Revel, Bowers & Wilkins, Paradigm, SVS, Wilson Audio, and many others.
