DJ Subwoofers

DJ subwoofers focus on the bass frequencies of music, improving the clarity and audibility of the low end in the audio. DJ subwoofer speakers connect to other PA system equipment to enhance their overall sonic capability. The active and passive subs featured are built within a strong, protective cabinet and are suited for use at live events at most venues.

DJ Subwoofers are built to assist the working DJ in improving the sound of their existing PA setup. When connected to a wider PA system, the subwoofer will share the load of the audio playback. This allows the other speakers to focus on the treble and middle signals present in the sound, DJ bass subwoofers then take on the bulk of the low-end sound, clarifying the overall balance of the system.

Buy DJ Subwoofer Speakers

Bass is fundamental to most music nowadays and the working DJ likely owns an extensive back catalogue of bass-heavy and rhythmic music to be used when the audience calls for it. The DJ subwoofer speakers in this range are usable in a variety of live event settings and they are built to withstand transportation between venues. The overall listening experience of an existing PA system is enhanced during the usage of DJ subwoofers.

The sub speakers themselves are fairly large in diameter, their sizeable nature forces the cabinet to be larger still. This does make the sub unit quite awkward to carry alone, while the subs have been fitted with handles to simplify transportation, and request assistance if needs be. There are full PA system kits that contain DJ subwoofers available elsewhere in the store for those seeking something more complete.

DJ Bass Subwoofer

DJ Bass subwoofers are available as both active or passive units, an active sub has a built-in amplifier and a passive sub needs a connection to an external power amp unit. Whichever route is chosen, DJs can experiment further with the lower frequencies in their music. Keep in mind that bass signals travel much further than middle or treble frequencies, so expect the speakers to be heard from a distance.

Bass in all music should always be used to compliment the treble and mid in the mix and if it begins to distort it means the speaker is reproducing the bass at a rate higher than the system capabilities. When this happens the bass levels should be rectified and decreased to better accentuate the upper register instruments. Instruments such as the snare drum and hi-hats should be well balanced from the lower elements of the kick drum, bass guitar or synth.

The separation and subsequent blending of the upper and lower frequency registers is the approach used by DJs to achieve a professional sounding final mix. As mentioned, each sub can be used alongside other compatible PA gear, there is a team of audio specialists ready to answer any questions you may have regarding sub-combinations. Give them a call during office hours for some friendly advice on any of the items available.


Frequently Asked...

What is a DJ subwoofer?

A DJ subwoofer is a speaker that focuses on lower frequencies, reproducing bass in music and audio. Once connected to a PA system, subwoofers improve the overall sound by distributing most low-end sounds, allowing other speakers to focus on treble and middle sounds. Therefore, they are popularly used by DJs in clubs, at parties and occasions such as wedding receptions. We provide a range of both passive and active DJ subwoofers to suit all events and purposes.


Do DJ’s need a subwoofer?

Yes, subwoofers are generally an essential part of a PA system for working DJs. The subwoofer amplifies low frequencies and provides a rich bass sound that loudspeakers are not able to produce. Bass is a key part of most music, and having a subwoofer enhances the audio performance, complimenting the treble and mid. Generally a beginner DJ will start with one subwoofer, while a professional DJ may have a pair of powerful subs.


What is the difference between an active and passive DJ subwoofer?

The key difference between active and passive DJ subwoofers is that active subwoofers have an in-built amplifier, so can connect directly to the mixer/controller. In comparison passive subwoofers need to be connected to an external amplifier to work. This means that an active subwoofer will need to be plugged into a mains power supply, whereas passive subwoofers just require a speaker wire connection to an amplifier. We offer a wide selection of both active and passive subwoofers, and our team can advise on the best choice for you.


How do you set up a DJ subwoofer?

A DJ subwoofer will need to be connected to your other PA equipment. The process will vary depending on whether the subwoofer is active or passive. An active subwoofer will connect directly to your mixer/controller and will also need to be plugged into the mains. Active stereo speakers can additionally be connected to the mixer/controller, or will be daisy chained to the subwoofer. Whereas a passive subwoofer will need to connect to an external amplifier, and will not need to be plugged into the mains. Any passive speakers will also need to be connected to an amplifier.


Which subwoofer is best for a DJ?

The best subwoofer for a DJ will vary depending on the DJ’s individual needs. There are a range of subwoofers available in various sizes and with different max power levels to suit all usage purposes. A beginner DJ would suit a compact, lower powered model, while a working DJ would likely choose a powerful pair of subwoofers. There are also both active and passive subwoofers to suit different set-ups. We offer a range of high-quality subwoofers that are designed for DJ use. Please speak to a member of our expert Electromarket team who will be able to advise on the best DJ subwoofer for your needs.


Where should I place my DJ subwoofer?

Typically a DJ subwoofer is placed front centre in the area where you want the max bass response, usually close to the dance floor area. Alternatively sometimes they are seen in corners of a room facing out. They are designed to be set-up on the floor and this produces the best results. To find the optimum place for your subwoofer in large venues, ideally experiment with different positions and move around the room to listen to how the bass travels. Please note that DJ subwoofers tend to be large and can be heavy which can affect their placement.


What frequency range should a DJ subwoofer have?

Typically the frequency response of a DJ subwoofer is between 20-200Hz. This ensures that the subwoofer is able to reproduce an extensive range of low frequencies for a rich sound. The exact frequency range will vary between models and this information is available in the product specifications.


What size DJ subwoofer do I need?

The size DJ subwoofer that you need will depend on your requirements. Larger subwoofers will have a bigger driver, meaning that they can provide greater depth for low-frequencies and a bigger bass response. A beginner DJ is likely to start with a more compact DJ subwoofer, probably 12-15 inches. Whereas a professional DJ may choose a pair of 18-inch subwoofers. As a general rule, the subwoofers are usually slightly larger than the full-range speakers, for example combining a 15-inch sub with 12 inch tops.


How does a DJ subwoofer connect to a DJ controller?

Typically an active DJ subwoofer will connect to a DJ controller with a signal lead. Your active stereo speakers will connect in the same way, or can be daisy chained to the subwoofer. However if you are using a passive subwoofer this will first need to be connected to an amplifier with a speaker lead, and the amplifier will then connect to the controller with a signal lead.
