2018’s List of Top-Rated Subwoofer Systems for Single Cab Trucks!

Subwoofers are the thrum in your body; you don’t hear these frequencies as much as you feel them. That is why a powerful subwoofer will be “felt” even at great instances. They are disturbances in the air, and without a good subwoofer, the music loses its depth.

Custom fit subwoofers are not an issue, there are many makes and brands, and in most cases,  they are very good. However, as with any product, you need to appreciate quality into your equation, so you get a clear, filtered vibration and not a static-filled cacophony. Remember, your body feels these wavelengths more than your ear hears them, this means that a good frequency, with clear wavelength, will make you feel good.

We have compiled a list of the best ten subwoofer boxes and systems that will fit into most single cab trucks, and you can go rigging along with any sound, enjoying that deep thrum in your bum!

The main features we look for are frequency response, which must be between 20 to 200 HZ and Sensitivity, which should be above 88dB for an above average sound level per 1 Watt of power.

What kind of sub should you get?

Buying a sub-woofer might seem simple, but its actually a very delicate matter. A good subwoofer will bring you a lot of joy; a bad one will freak you out and most probably lead to road rage.

That’s why you need to consider all the factors involved in a subwoofer system, and these include the dimensions of the box. Where will you install it, how will you attach it to the current system and the most important factor is what quality of sound will you receive?

These are the main needs that people have stressed, and these are what you need to consider:

  • An easy “off-the-shelf” sub/enclosure combo that is budget friendly. You will need an external amp when buying such a deal.
  • A simple, space-saving bass system. These are great small powered woofer systems to install, but they are limited to the amount and depth of bass that they will give you, due to their size.
  • A sub that will blend in with the car’s interior. There are a number of predesigned woofer systems; they usually come with all the additional features. They are more expensive but well worth the cost since they were designed specifically for your car and for providing the maximum bass complement.

What to look for

Power: Ultimately, Power is king. This means check out the speaker wattage; you will see this in RMS or peak power output. Essentially peak power output is usually double the RMS, so if the kit states 600 peak power, it means that the speaker is 150Watt RMS. Just take note that peak power is not a continuous output, the RMS is what you want to check.

Sensitivity: Power by itself is not enough., you need sound too, and this is sensitivity. Sensitivity is measured in decibels (dB) and the higher the dB, the higher the sensitivity, the more sound you get for your power. Essentially, an 88-dB unit is average, anything above this is above average and so too with the downside.

Frequency range: This is how low the sound will be to how high it can go.  A good unit will go as low as 20 Hz. However, these are costlier units and usually found in the engineered home systems and professional systems. Most car units start around 24-26Hz, and the upper range is not as important, but it does show for speaker versatility and quality if the range is high.

Enclosure type: Sound, especially low-frequency ranges travel through air, and they move air accordingly. This means that the box can amplify the power of the vibration (wavelength) and focus it directionally. A well-sealed speaker enclosure will act as a sound actuator, making it deeper and more accurate.

A number of voice coils: Now we get a bit technical, and this is important to those ear buffs that have such an acute hearing the physical aspects of the speakers make up become important. Essentially car sound enthusiasts fall into this category of people, and they prefer a dual voice coil subwoofer since these units provide flexibility in wiring up sound systems. The dual voice coil (DVC) subwoofer uses two separate voice coils, mounted on one cylinder, with individual connections, connected to a common cone.

Size of the woofer: This is a contested question, essentially the answer is down to quality. Certainly, the larger the system, the more powerful sound, but some smaller unit are so well engineered that they compete with larger ones. For the average car system, size does matter, if you can buy a 12” instead of a 10”, go for it.

Impedance: This is the Ohm setting you to read about, and there are three types: 2 Ohm, 4 Ohm, and 8 Ohm. In this instance it’s all about the installation, you need to match your subwoofers Ohm’s to the system you are connecting to. This means that you need to check your subwoofer before you buy it when connecting to an already installed sound system.
