A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.
