Hi,

 

If you got a pair of two-way component speakers in front and a pair of two-way co-axial speakers at the rear powered by a decent 4 channel amplifier, is it still necessary to install a subwoofer plus dedicated amp in the boot?

 

I certainly do not want to get that thunderous killer bass which can be heard outside of the car!

 

Thanks.

depending on what music you listen to

 

bass adds the oomph

 

can get smaller subwoofer 8" or 10" and a mono bloc amp.

Diehard fans usually go for 12" but takes up boot space and extra weight.

 

or soft bass, get active subwoofer no need for amp

Most people put under seat but heard it gives butt a soft "bumping" feeling lolx

For music, tweeter, mid and woofer is required to produce the 3 different frequent.

 

If your component & co-axial has both tweeter & mid, where is your bass?

 

Even classic music also got bass hor.

What kind of sound system to get for the following requirements:

 

1. Basically listen to techno music

2. Wanted small and light weight

 

Any price indication ?  Brand not important and basically for the kick of it (like driving in a mini disco to drive my blues away especially in a jam)

 

Cheers

Wow! Afterwards the butt got massaging feeling, feel shiok then cannot drive properly!!!

Think boot placement will be better.

 

Found one such subwoofer made by Focal: Ibus 20.

See photo.

 

Has anyone installed this subwoofer? Comments?

 

Thanks.

For me I feel that in a car the acoustics are bad becoz of the tire noise, road noise and engine noise from other vehicles. And sometimes you need noise as feedback. That is why audio in my car is never a priority.

My active subwoofer is pioneer TS-WX120A. No additional amp required. My installer connect straight to my HU.

So far I am quite pleased with the sound performance. I also install under driver seat, when increasing the volume, really can feel the boom boom haha. Especially if you want something small and light music.

 

My setup is similar with you. Front is 2 way components speaker, rear is 2 way coaxial speaker and powered with 4 channel amp.

Added this active sub really make all the sound system complete. I am thinking to do sound proofing lolz. Poison never end one.

 

If you want to add active sub, pm me. The famous FL meng quote a very good price and decent workmanship from him.

 

Future upgrade list?

3 way components speaker?

I'd like to clarify this statement. 8", 10" and 12" subwoofer gives different kinds of sound (or ooomph). bigger isn't always better. in fact, bigger (12") means more sound, while smaller (8") gives more ooomph. depends on what you are looking for.

 

To TS, subwoofer or not depends on how particular you are about your music. some people dont bother too much about music in car, some people bother a lot. In general, in my opinion, a subwoofer is always better than none. In your case, a small one will do.

Since you are already in that route I suggest you continue to go all out which is to get the subwoofer and you might want to check out 3 way component speakers.

Since your 4 door are soundproofed then please go for a 4 channel amp ! You definitely need one. Big difference with and without amp.

Change your rear stock to 2 way coaxial speaker. After all this, your last upgrade properly will be adding a active subwoofer.

Is 3 way really better than 2 way speaker? I check out the prices.. it is super expensive, custom pillar holder for the mid bass, tweeter.. etc etc..

Easily 1000+...

I was thinking of not installing an amp for now. Don't need to reach the BOOM BOOM effect... just want to feel a slight bit more bass that's all. :)

4 channel Amp is not really for boom boom effect. It will make your speaker sound clearly, bass, and other vocal  etc etc.

Pioneer 5850 bulit in amp Mosfet 50w x 4 speaker. If you really want some bass, definitely need an amp.

u started with those (esp soundproof 4 door already), so u cannot stop.... [laugh]

 

select a sound workshop ...get 4ch amp..do a nice set up

 

then an active subwoofer or subwoofer speaker + box + monoblock amp (recommend the latter)
