We are surrounded by sound – allday, every day. Birds chirping, voices of those around us, and even the low humof the refrigerator grace our ears without us noticing. Meaningful sound,however, is more than just background noise. It is the sound we take the timeto appreciate because it is layered, complex, and rich. If your sound system ismissing a little depth and bass, then there is no better way to introduce theseelements than through Polk’s world-renowned subwoofers.
Let’s explore a few reasons whythis investment is one upon which you don’t’ want to miss out.
Why a Subwoofer?
Before we get into how Polkrevolutionised the industry, we must first discuss what subwoofers are. Theyare, in essence, loudspeakers that act as amplifiers. They specialise ingenerating sub-bass and bass audio, which are just very low frequencies thatstandard speakers cannot always produce. These low frequencies may not seemimportant, but most music, movies, and television shows make use of suchsounds. Without this bass, viewers and listeners will miss out on the fullimpact of the piece, losing much of the experience. So, to truly get your heartpumping during your favourite movie’s car chase scene or that intricate pieceof classical music, you will need to invest in a high-quality subwoofer.
