LS50W Active Music System Subwoofer Integration

There is no denying the thump the LS50W Active Music System is capable of producing, even in a larger room, but for those of you who want just a little more bottom end, the LS50W app has some options.

The -6dB (85dB/1m) frequency range for the LS50W is spec’d to 40 Hz (More), 43 Hz (Standard) and 46 Hz (Less). For enclosures that are basically 12” x 8” x 12” that’s a pretty amazing low-end.

The LS50W bass response is spec’d to 45 Hz (More), 50 Hz (Standard) and 61 Hz (Less). This is measured as the point at which the response curve attenuates by -3dB from the otherwise relative flat curve. With musical genres like chamber music and most popular music that have natural drums and bass (think everything from the Beatles to The Strokes) there’s not a lot of musical information below 50 Hz. For modern pop, classical symphony and electronic music, a subwoofer may be necessary. However, there is also the matter of quality of bass reproduction as opposed to the quantity of bass reproduction. For music, it’s preferable to have an enclosure that is tight, quick and responsive so the trade-off is depth of bass in order to produce accurate bass. Try out the LS50W without a subwoofer first to see if you think one is necessary.
