Bass is the backbone of music, and if a sound system is lacking in it, then no matter how good the rest of the components sound, the overall system will feel underwhelming. When choosing the right size of subwoofer for your vehicle there are a few aspects to consider: How much space do you have to dedicate to your subwoofer? What kind of music do you listen to? How much power are you planning on supplying the subwoofer?
This article is about 15” subwoofers, and these questions are even more important when considering this size. The size of enclosure needed to house a subwoofer grows exponentially with every inch of the subwoofer’s diameter, so even though it is only 3” wider than a 12” subwoofer, the enclosure for it will be much larger.
Subwoofers of this size work best when paired to bass heavy music types like house or EDM, though they work well with other genres as well. As for power, because they are so large they are often less efficient than other sizes, so usually they require more power.
If you decide on a 15” subwoofer you gain deep bass that is more “environmental” than other sizes and the bass can be more impactful. These subwoofers are a big commitment but the sound rewards you get are unmatched.
