We previously talked about the best speakers for Denon CEOL N10 and today we will be showing you a list of subwoofers that you can go for, so as to match one of them with your Denon’s mini HiFi system. If you want to learn more about the sonic characteristics and strengths of the Denon CEOL N10, we suggest checking out the earlier mentioned article.
Denon CEOL N10 has tight control over its bass delivery which is ideal for music playbacks and to make full use of this sonic characteristic, we highly suggest getting a sealed cabinet subwoofer. A sealed subwoofer is more capable of controlling its low-end delivery thus giving us a more accurate bass response. We assume you will be using your Denon CEOL N10 in a small listening room and a sealed sub will be ideal since it doesn’t have a bass port which might be reinforced by the walls causing it to sound too pronounced. The overly exaggerated bass reproductions might muddle the upper registers and deteriorate the music playback quality.
Unless you prefer bass output over quality, then a ported subwoofer will be a much more suitable choice for you. Since you are likely to be using the Denon CEOL N10 mini HiFi system inside your bedroom which would be considered small. You don’t really need a large-sized subwoofer to fill up the room and it might take up too much space as well. If you have limited space then you will need to consider getting a compact-sized subwoofer for easier placement within your listening room. Another important requirement to consider would be your budget. This will heavily influence the choice of subwoofers that you can go for. Do note that the better quality of the subwoofer, the more expensive it will get.
If you are very concerned about matching your speakers’ sound signatures, we suggest going with a subwoofer of the same brand. Or to get a high-quality sealed subwoofer, as it will be articulate and accurate enough to keep pace with your speakers. When you have considered all necessary requirements and are firm with what you want from a subwoofer, please take a look below to check out the best subwoofers for your Denon CEOL N10 system. We have taken the price points of the subwoofers into consideration so as to match closely with the Denon mini HiFi system.
Best Subwoofers for Denon CEOL N10
The Kanto SUB8 is an excellent subwoofer choice for bedrooms due to its modern and elegant aesthetics. Its size also makes it well-suited to be used inside a small listening room too. Kanto SUB8 is a sealed cabinet subwoofer with an 8″ driver and will match well with your Denon CEOL N10. It may be considered quite a small subwoofer to some but the SUB8 is still capable of delivering low-frequencies of down to 35Hz bass extension. This Kanto subwoofer will help add more weight and presence to the overall sound reproduction.
For Denon CEOL N10 users who have higher budgets might want to consider choosing the SVS SB-1000 Pro. This is a high-quality sealed subwoofer with a much larger bass driver than the Kanto SUB8. It uses a 12-inch SVS Subwoofer Driver and has more power at its disposal, up to 820 Watts (peak) to be exact. The bass performance is powerful and not exaggerated. Furthermore, the low-end delivery is tight, making the SVS SB-1000 Pro a fantastic choice for music lovers.
The Klipsch R-100SW is one of the best subwoofers to partner up with your Denon CEOL N10. This is a ported subwoofer with a 10″ front-firing IMG woofer. The bass port is located at the rear of the cabinet and you can place it nearer to the back wall so as to reinforce the low-end output. Klipsch R-100SW may be a ported subwoofer but it has a rather tight delivery and a clean bass reproduction. The size of the R-100SW is suitable to be used inside a small listening room and is good for music playbacks.
The SVS PB-1000 Pro is another ported subwoofer and is more powerful than the Klipsch R-100SW. It is capable of reaching below 20Hz bass extension which is really impressive for an entry-level ported sub and already justifies the higher price point. This ported SVS sub is ideal for Denon CEOL N10 owners who are bass fanatics. The level of bass output is incredible and will fill your bedroom with ease. It has a unique feature where you can switch between “Standard” or “Sealed” mode, great for users who are unsure which type of subwoofer to go for.
The HSU Research VTF-2 MK5 is one of the best hybrid subwoofers to go for and match it with your Denon CEOL N10 mini HiFi system. This hybrid ported subwoofer provides flexibility for its users. You can choose between having both bass ports open or one or simply closing it all to activate the sealed operating mode. Each operating mode has its own unique sound characteristics and this allows you to adjust the HSU Research VTF-2 MK5 accordingly to the type of music you are listening to on your Denon CEOL N10.
Polk Audio PSW10 is one of the best subwoofers to go for if you have a tight budget. This compact-sized ported subwoofer has garnered thousands and thousands of positive ratings from its users. It is certainly a worthy match for your Denon CEOL N10. The Polk Audio PSW10 is a 10″ ported sub with only 100 Watts of power but it is sufficient enough for a small listening room or at a nearfield listening distance. The bass quality of the PSW10 is really good for the money and for a subwoofer at this price point, we won’t be trying to nitpick it.
To Sum It Up
Once you have confirmed all your requirements, choosing a subwoofer from this list will be a piece of cake. Arranging an audition with the potential subwoofer would help too as you can use your own ears to find out if you like the bass quality. If the subwoofer brand you are looking for is not on this list, please feel free to use this as a reference. It is not really necessary to get a subwoofer that is from the same brand as your speakers though.
