Car Box

Can you put car subs in a speaker tower?

My subs in my old towers got ripped up and i need new ones, problem is, cant find anything on amazon that are not car subs. I found a pair of Pyle 8 ohm sub-woofers, however, im not sure if there is a difference between normal car subs and regular home theater speaker subs. If its clarity, i dont care. But would it work to simply place them in the tower and connect them the same way as a regular speaker?

Yes you can but it's generally not very good. You're looking in the wrong place for home audio woofers. You need to be looking at http://www.parts-express.com/speakers.cfm and http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/speaker-drivers/ Parts Express and Madisound are two of the largest suppliers. Also see subwoofer amplifiers... http://www.parts-express.com/wizards/searchResults.cfm?srchExt=CAT&srchCat=505

Car subwoofers are designed with very stiff suspensions making it possible for them to work in very small boxes. Also, because the space in a car is very small compared to a room, it isn't necessary to tune the car box to such a low frequency. It's going to get a lot of low end extension due to room gain. If you put the same woofer/box combination in your home you are not going to get nearly as much room gain. The net result is that car woofers are not very good for very low frequency. There are a lot of home audio woofers that also use very stiff suspensions and work in very small boxes but these require EQ built into the onboard amplifier to get any real low frequency extension. Also, these all pretty much sound bad. I call it, "One note fits all", aka one note bass. These are not good sounding subs at all. The best sounding subs have much looser suspension cones and work in either open or infinite baffles instead of a small box.
