Determining the Number of Subwoofers

Our satellite speakers sound great on their own, but for true full-range performance you’re going to want at least one subwoofer in the system. To provide uniform coverage and reduce hot-spotting, we recommend using at least two subs per system (similar to a home theater design).

Multiple subwoofers are recommended for areas larger than 3,000 sq. ft, so try to place one every 40-60 linear feet.

Crown amplifiers are 2-ohm stable, so up to three subwoofers can safely be used.

Choosing a Subwoofer

When using multiple subwoofers, stick to one size and type in order to get the most out of the amplifier’s DSP.


A burial subwoofer is the top choice – both in terms of their performance and discreet aesthetic.

A hardscape subwoofer is perfect for areas where a burial sub is not possible, such as on a rooftop or concrete patio.
