If you’re a music lover, you’ll know, when it comes to listening to your favourite song while driving, “it’s all about the bass” – so let’s talk music streaming quality.

A good sound system has quality Speakers, brings the “woof” into your Woofer and Amplifiers that literally amp up the sound.


Why choose a large cone? A large cone speaker can more effectively move air from the amplifier (amp), which makes it more efficient. The larger cone size also has a lower resonant frequency, resulting in it producing more bass.

Compared to a small cone speaker, the difference is the level of bass, and in particular, mid-bass. To achieve anything close to the levels any music lover would want, a small cone speaker needs to move a lot more, to counter this. More movement equals more wear, which soon results in sound and clarity distortion. Therefore, less expensive units may sound fine for a few years, but then the quality quickly nosedives.

As the name suggests, an amp literally amplifies the sound clarity. As the audio signal (music/sound) passes through the voice coil, the speaker driver reacts, according to the audio waveform, and we hear the soundwaves, as unique voice, or music, characteristics, that we can identify as not only a specific sound, or tune, but the singer, speaker, and instruments used.

Your amplifier is the device that enables that signal to be clear, strong, and recognisable. The better the quality of amplifier, the greater the signal clarity and individuality.

What is a Woofer ?

A woofer is a speaker that focuses on the low-end of the audible spectrum, with a narrow frequency. The word “WOOFER” comes from the sound a dog makes when barking with a deep bark. A woofer allows for that bass sound we all enjoy, and it also has another benefit, when it comes to speakers. Depending on the design, a speaker may have a smaller voice coil, and therefore less thermal capacity. This often results in overheating and failing. Budget cars often have inexpensive sound systems and drivers may find, especially if the vehicle is eight or more years old, that occasionally their sound system just cuts out. This can be for several reasons but is also likely due to the voice coil thermal capacity.

This issue can be resolved with a woofer, because the high-pass crossover point is raised to reduce the amount of power sent to the speaker. At Reverse Safe, we have an extensive range of woofers, suitable for most make and models. Whether you’re looking to enhance or upgrade, we’ve got you covered.

What does a Sub-Woofer do?

As the name suggests, a sub-woofer is a subsidiary to a woofer. The best way to explain the difference between a woofer and a sub-woofer is to describe a woofer as a type of speaker that hits a low frequency, thus improving the sound and quality of sound, while a sub-woofer does the same thing, but on an even narrower frequency.

While a woofer covers a frequency range of 20Hz to 2Hz, a subwoofer focuses on the very narrow range of 20Hz to 200Hz. By focusing on this narrow spectrum, a sub-woofer creates a fuller, deeper, sound. The downside is, as this range is so narrow, any unit that has a sub-woofer, will need other speakers that can cover the other frequencies.

Which is better? Depends on your needs, budget, and your love of bass 😉
