  • Bass and Sound Quality

    Subwoofers have lowest notes for their bass frequencies in which the frequency response range comes as low as 20Hz and it is also a lower point-ability of the human hearing.

    The top frequency we have measured is 150Hz, However, it is not important because higher frequency response usually car speakers cover is above 80Hz.
