“Oh, you mean those things that boom?!” Well, kinda!
One of the most common things we hear from our customers when the topic of subwoofers comes up is “oh you mean the things that make your car rattle? No, I don’t need everyone around me to hear my music”. Granted, there are subwoofer systems that fit that bill, but that does not mean that is the way it has to be! As a matter of fact, we specialize in small, discreet systems that add excitement to your sound system while taking up very little space and do not drain your electrical system or your wallet! Also, we have the ability to let you listen to a subwoofer in your own vehicle to hear what it sounds like before you buy anything, using our mobile subwoofer demo.
Kind of like watching a color movie in black and white!
Every kind of music has sub-bass, this is a simple fact. So, if you do not have speakers that can reproduce this part of your music, you are missing out on music that artist intended for you to hear! In the absence of a speaker dedicated to producing sub bass, most users will adjust the settings on their radio to attempt to get some kind of bass from speakers that are not intended to produce it, and they end up damaging the speakers. What we propose, instead, is to add an amplifier and a subwoofer to the sound system so that you can get the sound you are looking for, without damaging your existing equipment. This way, your whole system sounds great!
Using our knowledge to get you the best bang for your buck!
The most important part of a subwoofer system is the enclosure itself, the best sub in the world will sound terrible in the wrong enclosure, it’s simple physics. When designing an enclosure, you must take into consideration parameters of the subwoofer itself, the amount of power it will receive and the type of music being listened to, in order to create a truly satisfying subwoofer system. Maybe you’d like a small woofer in a sealed enclosure so that your rock music is nice and tight and punchy. Maybe you listen to rap or hip hop and want some powerful low end boom! With all of these variables, how could a “package” or “bass-in-a-box” type of system possibly be the best way to go? It is essential to custom build each enclosure for each vehicle and each listener and this is the way we do it.
At Handcrafted Car Audio, we have the experience and knowledge to choose the correct design and build it to perform! We have a room in our facility dedicated to fabrication so we can build one-off enclosures specific to your vehicle, we have computer programs to show us what our design will sound like and we have instruments to calibrate the amplifier so that the subwoofer is getting the power it needs, without the risk of damage. This is not throw-a-box-in-your-trunk car audio, this is custom, handcrafted car audio! <—— Clever huh?
