To choose the right subwoofer, you really have to understand how different subwoofer designs act in different situations and how they work with the rest of your system. At Ramsdell Pro Audio, we have always believed that the better you understand how to get the most out of your subwoofer investment, the happier you will be when you start to use your new subs. We find we need to teach most customers the fundamentals of subwoofer design and get rid of some misconceptions they may have before they really understand what they need. We don't claim to know everything, but 30 years of experience in all situations has given us insight.
Whether you are a veteran in the business, or just getting started, this collection of articles by Rick Ramsdell will help you get the most out of your investment by helping you pick the best subwoofer for your particular application. The two biggest determining factors in choosing the best type of subwoofer you need are the subwoofer's specific application, and the type of enclosure you are going to use to reproduce the frequencies right above your subwoofer crossover point. These articles were conceived as a single article, and grew into these three. It is very important that you read all three of them before you make your subwoofer selection, because you need to have a solid understanding of everything in these articles.
