- Also called low frequency loudspeaker, or woofer. A large speaker designed to reproduce frequencies below a given threshold, such as 1000 or 300 Hz. Depending on the design and components, a woofer may accurately reproduce frequencies below the limit of human hearing. Such a speaker unit is usually utilized with others, such as midranges and tweeters, for reproduction across the full audio spectrum.
