Bose Subwoofers: Subtle Sound, Boosted Bass

When it comes to entertainment, there's no better accessory than sound. Whether you're watching a movie, bingeing a show, playing a game, or listening to music, modern recreation demands an innovative sound system. Bose soundbars upscale any entertainment into a three-dimensional audio experience—and when paired with a Bose subwoofer, every noise becomes real. Explosions shoot through the floor during the family's favorite thriller movie, while deep bass beats flow across the room as you turn on your favorite playlists. These monochromatic gadgets turn moments of sound into full-fledged sonic adventures. Find yours at Abt.

Why Do I Need One?

You might not...that is, if you don't watch TV, movies, or listen to music. These satellite subs have become increasingly popular alongside soundbars and wireless speakers. That's because those small devices have a hard time producing the deep beats we'd often describe as "bass". And without bass, tunes become harder to enjoy—you're missing that quintessential element. The driving power of bass, along with special effects noises and beats that you'd never notice without one of these woofers.

Bose subwoofers bring the bass back thanks to an easy set-up process and unrivaled flexibility. Learn more about all the different pieces involved in a classic audio kit with our Speaker Buying Guide.

A Wireless Design

Unlike a classic wired version, modern Bose subwoofers are designed to connect completely wirelessly. With no tether connecting you to your speakers, you're free to place your device wherever it feels the best. While it can sometimes be tough to figure out where your bass-maker belongs, there are a few methods and rules of thumb that can get you started.

First, consider the physics of how these waves move. Though you can't see it, the noise your speaker fires at you shoots in waves. Your sub will do the same thing with lower beats. You want those beats to feel as natural as possible, mingling with the noise coming from your TV or soundbar for seamless audio. That's why many designers recommend beginning your search for the optimal sub spot at the front of the room (the direction you'll normally be facing, like towards the TV) or just beside your speaker. You won't want it to be right up against a wall either—that wall will absorb your noise before it gets to you, acting as a buffer to your beats. Instead, move it further out from the wall or any corners.

Now comes the fun part: testing your setup. There's no guarantee that the first spot you set your device down in is going to be optimal. Instead, you'll need to play some tunes and see how everything feels. Adjust your machine as you play tunes and see how everything "mixes" until you've found it: the optimal audio.
