Many music and sound experts have begun their interest following a moving bass related experience. Bass is considered by many to be the most emotive part of music. It is bass that makes the adrenaline rush around your veins and makes your windows vibrate. Bass is unstoppable, it passes through concrete walls as easily as if the were made of tissue paper. Extremely low frequencies have been studied by the world’s military for their ability to spread unease and discomfort in humans and bass is also used to stimulate excitement in movie soundtracks, fun fairs and live stage performance among many other areas.
Some of the nation’s finest Sound Quality competition entrants will admit that their interest began with the memory of organ wobbling bass from a PA stack at a gig, real life sound such as a low-flying aeroplane or a sub-filled car heard at a show.
Handling bass frequencies takes a considerable amount of expertise. Hertz Subwoofers are designed from the ground up to optimise low frequencies whilst delivering sonic integrity. Every single element of their design comes from years of experience and know-how and is included in order to deliver maximum excitement at an affordable price. Many subwoofers command high prices as the engineering and materials required require highly specialist skills. At Hertz, the skill and expertise is all in-house ensuring that customers benefit from the best talent but at every day prices.
But it is not only the subwoofer which needs to be designed with skill, amplifiers and the interconnecting cables also need highly skilled attention. The amount of power required to drive a good quality subwoofer means that all elements of a system need to have plenty of performance to spare. The 2-channel Hertz amplifier selected for this bass system can deliver 200 Watts RMS to the subwoofer and has high level as well as line level inputs. This means it can connect directly to the speaker outputs of your factory fitted stereo and deliver all the bass you need to take your in car listening to new levels of enjoyment.
There is nothing like a significant bass boost to captivate your interest in music and there is no shame in starting your musical journey this way. Bass is the most difficult kind of audio to produce with integrity and although many companies can make a noise, it is usually one loaded with distortion rendering the source music unlistenable at worst or unintelligible at best! This is where Hertz differs from the crowd. They research, build, test and review each product tirelessly until it pleases them and as they have amassed some of the finest designers and critical listeners in the world over the years it takes something extra special to impress them!
