Car Audio Speakers in Melbourne, Victoria

You don’t need to be a musician, or even a devoted music lover, to know, that when you’ve got a great ‘bass’ the sound thumps out and has every one of us nodding our heads in time with the music.

But many of us really don’t fully understand what it means when someone says “it’s all about the Bass” – so let’s break it down. A good sound system has quality Speakers, bringing the “woof” into your Woofer and Amplifiers that literally amp up the sound.


What’s a large cone & a small cone & what’s the difference?

A large cone speaker can more effectively move air from the amplifier (amp), which makes it more efficient. The larger cone size also has a lower resonant frequency, resulting in it producing more bass.

With a small cone speaker, the difference is the level of bass, and in particular, mid-bass. To achieve anything close to the levels any music lover would want, a small cone speaker needs to move a lot more, to counter this. More movement equals more wear, which quickly results in sound and clarity distortion.

This is why often less expensive units sound fine for a few years, but then the quality quickly nosedives.

What is a Woofer?

The word “WOOFER” comes from the sound a dog makes when barking with a deep bark. Many of us have heard of woofers, or sub-woofers, but are they the same thing?

A woofer is a speaker that focuses on the low-end of the audible spectrum, with a narrow frequency. A woofer allows for that bass sound we all enjoy, and it also has another benefit, when it comes to speakers. Depending on the design, a speaker may have a smaller voice coil and therefore less thermal capacity. This often results in overheating and failing. Budget cars often have inexpensive sound systems and drivers may find, especially if the vehicle is eight or more years old, that occasionally their sound system just cuts out. This can be for several reasons but is also likely due to the voice coil thermal capacity.

This issue can be resolved with a woofer because the high-pass crossover point is raised to reduce the amount of power sent to the speaker. At PPA Car Audio, we have an extensive range of woofers, suitable for most makes and models. Whether you’re looking to enhance or upgrade, we’ve got you covered.

What does a Sub-Woofer do?

As the name suggests, a sub-woofer is a subsidiary to a woofer. The best way to explain the difference between a woofer and a sub-woofer is to describe a woofer as a type of speaker that hits a low frequency, thus improving the sound and quality of sound, while a sub-woofer does the same thing, but on an even narrower frequency.

While a woofer covers a frequency range of 20Hz to 2Hz, a subwoofer focuses on the very narrow range of 20Hz to 200Hz. By focusing on this narrow spectrum, a sub-woofer creates a fuller, deeper, sound. The downside is, that as this range is so narrow, any unit that has a sub-woofer will need other speakers that can cover the other frequencies.

Which is better? Depends on your needs, budget, and your love of bass 😉

We can look at your needs, your make and model of vehicle, and your budget, and assess what would work best for you. We hold all the top brands, which means, we have a sound system suitable for most cars.



An amp literally amplifies the sound clarity. As the audio signal (music/sound) passes through the voice coil, the speaker driver reacts, according to the audio waveform, giving us unique sounds, voice-specific sounds and music that is easily identifiable not only for the notes but also for the singer/performer. Those soundwaves, allow us to identify as not only a specific sound, or tune, but the singer, speaker, and instruments used.  The better the quality of the amplifier, the greater the signal clarity and individuality.

Amps and speakers work together to create the best possible combination of sound and clarity, however, many of us who are not musicians, or experts in sound systems, can find it confusing to know what the best sound system is for our personal, daily, use.

Our Team are expert in car sound systems and can advise and guide you to find the ideal system for you. As we’re one of the best in the business, we have systems to suit most vehicles 😊
