If you love bass, whether it’s the mirror-rattling kind or the more subtle kind that adds fullness and nuance to any music, a subwoofer is the way to go. Which sub is right for you depends on many factors, including the size of your vehicle, what music you like, and also the type of installation involved.

All subwoofers need an amp, whether it’s built into the enclosure of a powered sub or mounted separately from the enclosure. The installation for either type is roughly the same; you need to grab power from your car’s battery and then connect signal either from an aftermarket receiver’s preamp outputs or by tapping into factory wiring.
