A component of a complete loudspeaker, which is commonly referred to as a woofer or subwoofer, reproduces low pitched bass or sub-bass. The typical frequency of a subwoofer ranges from 20 Hertz to 200 Hertz for most consumer products. The subwoofer frequency is below 100 Hertz in the case of professional live sound equipment, and below 80 Hertz in THX Limited approved high fidelity sound systems. A subwoofer augments low frequencies of a loudspeaker that is intended to cover higher frequency bands. Technically, subwoofer is a common loudspeaker driver. However, in regular parlance, subwoofer refers to one or multiple sound drivers mounted inside a loudspeaker or subwoofer cabinet. These subwoofer enclosures are available in varied designs, such as bass reflex design that includes a vent or a port, a subwoofer with a variable number of passive radiator speakers in the cabinet, acoustic suspension with a sealed cabinet, horn loaded, infinite baffle, and band-pass designs that represent innovative trade-offs with regards to low frequency ranges, efficiency, subwoofer enclosure prices and sizes. A passive subwoofer is powered by external amplifiers and has an enclosure and a subwoofer driver. A built-in amplifier is included in an active subwoofer. A subwoofer was developed to facilitate a bass response feature in home sound systems. With the introduction of Sensurround sound in motion pictures, subwoofers gained popularity in the market. A large subwoofer produces loud low frequency Sensurround sound.
Subwoofer: Market Drivers and Challenges
Subwoofers possess the capability of reproducing a wide range of frequencies that the audio source in a home or professional theatre system transmits. This factor is the primary driver of the global subwoofer market. The continuous research, development and upgrades in the automotive sector will also propel the global subwoofer market to greater heights. Customers have the option to customize the subwoofer cabinet material based on their requirements. For instance, some applications require wooden subwoofer cabinets for technical purposes or to give the loudspeaker an aesthetic look. This service offered by the manufacturers will enable the global subwoofer market to grow. However, with respect to the acoustics, a subwoofer with 15-inch, 18-inch, and 20-inch sound drivers are susceptible to distortion when compared to 10-inch, 12-inch, and 13-inch subwoofer sound drivers. Availability of cheap and poorly designed subwoofers is expected to challenge the growth of the global subwoofer market. Also, most subwoofers are extremely delicate and a tiny tear could destroy the quality of the sound. This factor restraints the growth of the global subwoofer market.
