Don’t Miss Out

Plenty has been written in the audiophile annals about why one should include a subwoofer in modern home music and theater systems. I do not disagree with any of it, but I do want to bring a new perspective on why everyone should have a subwoofer.

For music, the common advice is to always use at least one subwoofer in a serious audio system, because there is much more sub-bass information in non-sub-bass-instrument recordings than you might at first believe. Transient string plucks, firm foot taps or the changing of a bow direction on a bowed instrument can produce seemingly insignificant sub bass material, but it’s there, and experience shows that we really miss it when it’s taken away.

I’ve noticed that much of the focus on subwoofer improvement by audiophiles has revolved around effectiveness with acoustic music. Whether it’s classical, jazz, chamber or world music, sounds that are captured by microphones will always benefit from a subwoofer in playback, simply because real sub bass exists in the real world.

In my view, the arguments are applicable to all kinds of music, not just acoustic music. All the same principles apply to synthesized music, perhaps even more so. Let me explain.

Our Purpose

We make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus. No kidding ourselves that we can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. We just do our best to conquer our bit of it.
Each day we come in to work in pursuit of only one intention, to produce the most raw, perfect, pure sound possible, to capture the raw intention of the artist. We use the best quality materials, employ the most exacting construction requirements. We think of the problem holistically. We pursue the chase of the perfect experience of sound with an obsessive passion and vigor.
We do it because we love sound. We believe sound can move people more than any other sense. We believe it’s the integration of the bass via the perfect subwoofer that makes everything else better. And, ultimately, there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from doing this well, creating something of unique quality, such that you know it is going to inspire. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s our reward.
