Subwoofers are designed to handle the deep bass sounds and the lower end frequencies that smaller speakers battle with. They add a level of power to the music system that would otherwise not be possible and help to produce a great all-round stereo sound.
Your choice of subwoofer should be determined largely by the type of music that you prefer to listen to, as some subwoofers are better able to keep up with fast, light music than others. Typically, larger subwoofers can handle deeper bass, but are a little less agile than the smaller ones in following quick changes in tone.
