Anyone who knows their music understands the importance of a high quality powered subwoofer. Without one, you risk not “hearing” the music as you should this is because the bass is actively impaired. If you particularly love to hear a deep, thumping base you should never miss out on adding a subwoofer – trust me, the difference is unbelievable; clarity, depth of tone and no distortion.
