When it comes to great sound systems in boats, the team at Certified Autosound and Security in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Maple Ridge know that marine audio subwoofers are an absolute necessity. From a 16-foot bowrider to a 40-foot cruiser or sailboat, a premium entertainment system is an integral part of enjoying your time on the water with friends. Whether you want a little background music while you enjoy dinner with friends or want to pound your favourite jams while skiing or wakeboarding, we can design a solution that will exceed your expectations.
Improved Low-frequency Extension
A subwoofer is a speaker that is designed specifically to reproduce the bottom three octaves of the audible audio spectrum. To reproduce music with accuracy and detail, a subwoofer has to move a lot of air – significantly more than a speaker designed to play midrange and high frequencies. For that reason, subwoofers typically have large surface areas and a suspension designed to provide lots of excursion.
When we install a subwoofer on your boat, we will match it to a dedicated high-power amplifier to ensure it has the power it needs to reproduce even the deepest notes in your music. A typical 6.5-inch coaxial speaker may play down to 60 Hz with usable output. Even a modest subwoofer can play well below 30 Hz.
Enhanced System Clarity and Detail
Speakers sound their best when they operate within the frequency range for which they are designed. In the same way that a tweeter is small and light to respond accurately to high-frequency information, midrange speakers are optimized for clarity through the midrange frequencies. Sure, they can make a little bass, but they sound much better when they don’t have to work as hard.
When we add a subwoofer system to your boat, this dedicated speaker alleviates the high-excursion, low-frequency duties from your smaller speakers. The result is that they sound better and pay louder at all volume levels. Your subwoofer system takes care of reproducing bass with clarity and impact.
Marine Audio Subwoofers for Every Application
We carry subwoofers from prestigious brands like JL Audio and Rockford Fosgate. Each company offers several performance levels and a wide array of cosmetic styles. We can match the subwoofer to your application with white, black, silver or chrome grilles and we have several solutions with integrated LED illumination to add some unique style to your boat.
Our subwoofer offerings range in size from 8 to 12 inches in diameter with power handling ratings from 175 to 600 watts. Depending on the available space in your boat and your goals for the system, we may suggest a single sub to warm up the sound and use multiple drivers to create concert-level volume levels that cause waves of their own.
