Subwoofers have made significant advances in the last decade. This isn't marketing hyperbole. This is reality. Subwoofer performance and price have always been contingent on three major attributes: 1. Quantity of bass, the volume of air it will move. 2. Quality of bass - the accuracy of the bass, 3. Size of the cabinet - the physical dimensions. Large subwoofers weren't always the easiest item to locate in the listening room, especially with a cabinet the size of a Saint Bernard's kennel now parked in the middle of the room! Of course in those days, if you wanted big bass - you needed a big kennel for the big woofer!
Enter the modern subwoofer. Obtaining higher output with lower distortion in a smaller cabinet has always been the end-goal of subwoofer engineers for decades. The subwoofer revolution is here and it's due to four significant advances:
1. Increased performance of Class D amplifiers
2. Smaller diameter, longer throw woofers
3. The high efficiency / high wattage of Class D amplifiers allowed for small, low efficiency sealed enclosures.
4. The development of on-board in-room equalization software with USB interface.
Taken together, you have a subwoofer that plays louder, cleaner, is vastly smaller and and delivers superior in-room bass performance. JL AUDIO, PARADIGM, MARTIN LOGAN and REVEL all exemplify the best in modern subwoofer design and engineering. The inclusion of ARO software from JL Audio, PBK software from PARADIGM, MARTIN LOGAN and LFO software from REVEL, offer real in-room performance advantages.
The modern era of subwoofers have arrived and they're delivering exceptional performance, accuracy and in a small enclosure. While we still like big bass, today we can put the big dog's kennel - outside. The modern subwoofer is superior in every performance parameter to the subwoofers of a decade ago.
