Turn Up the Bass With Sound Sensations’ Subwoofer Installation Services

Every audiophile can agree that music is felt more than it’s heard. And when that deep, heavy bass hits just right on the highway, you may be inclined to take the long way home.

Bass notes create long sound waves, which require a lot of energy to produce. Most car manufacturers have to cram as much audio technology into speakers as possible, leaving no room for ample bass and resulting in poor sound quality.

Aftermarket subwoofers can help you take in every note and turn your daily commutes up to 11. Just this addition can completely transform your car’s stereo system and take it from basic to pro.

The good news is that more and more companies are offering subwoofers with different orientation capabilities to encourage a seamless integration. Take Pioneer’s TS-A2000LB, TS-A2500LB, and TS-A3000LB models, for example. These designs can be installed in three different ways:
