Site Updates

We changed a bit of the UI to make it look a tad more spiffy. We will likely be doing UI updates as an ongoing thing for the next few months.

For our second round of testing we’re looking to put together some popular commercial subwoofer systems and some new drivers that have yet to be put to the test by anyone! No date for a deadline yet, but the next round will use a full 10,000 watts of power so we won’t have too much clip limitations.

Bug fixes

We have a few bugs that we're sorting out. We noticed a compatibility issue with IE7 where the navigation menu did not work. This should be fixed now, but please report if you're still having issues with IE7. Thanks for the feedback!

Welcome to Data-Bass

Welcome to Data-Bass.com. After quite a bit of work and a few hiccups along the way, we’re off and running with our beta version! We only have a handful of systems tested and entered into our database at this time, but our system is designed to scale up quite a bit, so we hope to add many more systems this year and the next! We could use your help in this endeavor. If you are interested in temporarily sending in a system or woofer to be evaluated and have the data added as part of Data-Bass then please email our staff. We have the resources available to handle even very large, bulky and powerful systems. Your feedback is also encouraged. We are receptive to your comments, criticism and suggestions, so if you have an idea for a new test, a suggestion for the site itself, or a comment on how to improve Data-Bass drop us an email.

Our goal is a simple one: To provide real and relative measurements among home, car and pro audio subwoofers in order to advance the understanding of system design, tradeoffs and real world performance characteristics. We are not trying to prove one system is better or worse than the next but we do hope to reveal information about performance that may be difficult to otherwise compare. We would not likely be here today if it was not for the efforts and inspiration of other enthusiasts and their test sessions that have gone before. Ilkka Rissanen, Ed Mullen, Charlie (Slartibartfast), the various ProSound subwooofer shootouts, etc, etc.. who have compiled a considerable list of relative data for home audio, pro and diy subwoofers. We would like to continue the tradition of accurate no-nonsense evaluations while hopefully expanding on the concept in the process. We want to evaluate as wide of a range of brands, sizes and types of systems as possible in order to gather and spread accurate knowledge and separate myth from fact about subwoofer performance. We hope you enjoy!
