What is a subwoofer?

Subwoofer Definition

Speakers are designed to move air. When they move air, they create sound. When speakers excite the air and create sound around them these sound waves are measured in wavelengths. Subwoofers are designed to reproduce the lowest two octaves of audible sound, about 20 Hertz to 80 Hz.
