PARAGRAPHA subwoofer or sub is a loudspeaker designed to reproduce low-pitched audio frequencies known as bass and sub-bass , lower in frequency than those which can be optimally generated by a woofer. While the term "subwoofer" technically only refers to the speaker driver, in common parlance, the term often refers to a subwoofer driver mounted in a speaker enclosure cabinet , often with a built-in amplifier. Subwoofers are made up of one or more woofers mounted in a loudspeaker enclosure -often made of wood-capable of withstanding air pressure while resisting deformation. Subwoofer enclosures come in a variety of designs, including bass reflex with a port or vent , using a subwoofer and one or more passive radiator speakers in the enclosure, acoustic suspension sealed enclosure , infinite baffle , horn-loaded , tapped horn , transmission line , bandpass or isobaric designs, representing unique trade-offs with respect to efficiency, low-frequency range, cabinet size and cost. Passive subwoofers have a subwoofer driver and enclosure and they are powered by an external amplifier.
