    Question Can i use this as a sub?

    hi there,

    i still got my old boom box which was already broken but the good thing is the woofers is still in good shape, now im planning if it can be used as a woofer for the car since it has a good deep bass.

    its from this boombox

    I'm no sound guy, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work.

    I'd say about 90% of the performance of a subwoofer is not the subwoofer itself, but rather how it's enclosed.
