Is your soundbar not giving you the deep, rich bass you crave? Do you have a subwoofer lying around that isn’t being used? Fear not! Connecting your subwoofer to your soundbar is a quick and easy process that can give your audio setup the boost it needs. In this post, we’ll walk you through the steps involved in connecting a subwoofer to a soundbar.
Soundbar – what is it for?
Soundbars are a convenient way to listen to high-quality audio. You can connect one soundbar to your TV with a single HDMI Cable. Many soundbars are designed to be mounted on a wall or to sit under a TV on a table. They have speakers that are in compact, acoustically optimized enclosures, which provide detailed audio.
Many soundbars use a passive radiator to increase their bass output. It lets the drivers produce lower frequencies as if they were coming from larger, more prominent speakers. Even though they are small, these soundbars can be powerful!
Passive radiators are good, but they cannot match the power of subwoofers. These speakers are prominent and have one job: to play the low end of the audio spectrum. Therefore, they need to be in ample space to make noise.
How to connect a wired subwoofer to a soundbar?
In most cases, connecting wired subwoofer to soundbar is impossible. Soundbars are typically made to be used as a standalone product and are designed to improve your listening experience over TV speakers. However, different models have different compatibility, so please check your model.
Some soundbars have a special subwoofer output that allows you to connect a wired subwoofer. If your soundbar has this feature, connecting the two devices will be very easy. All you need is an appropriate cable to plug into the subwoofer output on the back of the soundbar.
You will need to use a wireless subwoofer if your soundbar does not have a subwoofer output. This type of subwoofer uses Bluetooth or another wireless technology to connect to the soundbar.
