Buying Guide to Select the Best Outdoor Subwoofers

In our buying guide, we want to highlight the peculiarities that a product of this type must-have, so that you can choose what best suits your listening tastes. Compare prices and performances of the recommended models: in a few minutes, you could find the one that best suits your needs.

Some Features

To go into the details of a subwoofer and its qualities, it is impossible to ignore some technical characteristics, on which we must necessarily dwell, however, trying not to be too dull.

The first aspect to consider when evaluating a device of this type is the size of the speaker, typically expressed in inches and which can vary from a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 34.

Let’s say that in the models to be used in an apartment, as “companions” of a home theater system, for example, the speaker’s diameter falls between 10 and 12 inches or approximately 30 centimeters.

Generally, the dimensions of a cone of a subwoofer tend to be rather large compared to that of a regular speaker because the low frequencies produce a massive displacement of air, better managed by an adequate diameter.

In principle, subwoofers are divided into active and passive. The former has a built-in amplifier while the latter receives power from an external microphone to which they are connected via a power cable. The best brands of devices of this type, however, have turned to the active models by now by far the most popular on the market.

The Best Positioning

Any component of a home theater system must be placed intelligently inside the listening room. From this point of view, the rules relating to where to place a subwoofer are less stringent than, for example, those relating to speakers to be placed in the right places in the room to make the best Dolby surround effect.

The positioning of the subwoofer is less “delicate” because the human ear cannot pick up precisely the origin of the lower frequencies. For this, you can place it wherever you like, keeping in mind that the appliance must, in any case, be placed directly on the floor and not on a shelf, a shelf, or a piece of furniture.

Another trick to be included in the ranking of the aspects to be taken into account is that of not bringing the subwoofer too close to the corners of the room because the waves, bouncing against the walls, could ruin the sound quality that you can perceive.

The Subwoofer Adjustment

Deciding the bass performance of a subwoofer is an operation that is closely connected to everyone’s tastes, so you certainly cannot hope to find a precise indication in the technical data sheets or the reviews of the various models on sale on the market.

Therefore, the most obvious solution is to provide for adjustment from time to time, mainly taking into account the type of film you are about to watch.

The bass level must be present only when necessary, to avoid that annoying background, which is the consequence of an incorrectly regulated device.

Of course, this is a valid argument, especially for subwoofers that fall into a medium / high price range, guaranteeing a crisp and not mixed result.

Origin and Role of The Subwoofer

The subwoofer is a particular type of acoustic speaker dedicated explicitly to the reproduction of low-frequency sounds. For this reason, it is used as a component in Hi-Fi stereo systems, both domestic and automotive, and in Home Theater multimedia systems.

They are also used professionally, in live concerts, cinemas, recording rooms, nightclubs, and more.

My Sub, Ideal for Small Rooms

The well-known Indiana Line brand, a subsidiary of the Italian company Coral Electronics, produces a line of subwoofers dedicated to home use, among which the MY SUB model stands out, an active subwoofer with a 178 mm diameter, explicitly designed to complete the extension of the bass speaker frequency with three or four-inch woofers.

Its nominal power is only 50 Watts, with peaks of 80 Watts, just enough for domestic use in rooms no more extensive than 25-30 square meters.

It is equipped with an internal amplifier, complete with controls on the rear side, and a double reflex duct, which minimizes the turbulence of the airflow, ensuring deep and full-bodied bass, free of distortions.

The only drawback of the subwoofer MIO SUB, according to the testimonies of the buyers, is given by the connection cables supplied in the accessory equipment, whose quality seems to leave much to be desired.

The first models were created in 1960, to extend the bass range in home stereo systems, but it was only from 1970, with the introduction of Sensurround, the first Surround system to be developed, that subwoofers had started to spread more and more.

Compact and Elegant Design

Leaving aside the problem of cables, which can be easily solved by purchasing a couple of new, better quality ones, what remains is a subwoofer with excellent performance that is particularly well-kept also from an aesthetic point of view.

One of the most appreciated aspects, in fact, together with the level of performance, is the size and appearance of this small subwoofer, which measures only 23 x 25 x 25.5 cm, and is finished with a beautiful matte black color, of a decidedly elegant vinyl tone.

Its dimensions make it easy to place in a small room, which is the type of environment for which it has been optimized, and the color allows it to be combined very quickly to any kind of furniture, classic or modern.
