Car Audio Tips

Replace the Speakers

No matter what kind of music you’re into, a set of brand name speakers is always going to offer a more sophisticated audio experience than the chintzy dinner plates that were installed by the car manufacturer. Unlike factory speakers which provide a muddled, single-driver sound, a set of Clarion or Kenwood speakers is going to have multiple drivers for low, high and mid-range sound.

Invest In Amplifier

An amplifier boosts electric signals, increasing their power. In the context of caraudio, the amplifier takes low-power output signals from a CD player, aux connection, or radio, and increases the strength of the signal to the point where it can power speakers and subwoofers.

What is a four channel amplifier?
These are a great choice if you drive a regular cab truck as you can power the frontchannels to power the front speakers and the rear channels can typically be bridged and used to power a single subwoofer. 4 channel amps are also a must have for any boat or off road vehicle owner.
What is the meaning of a mono amp?
A mono block amplifier has only 1 channel and cannot be bridged. The 2 outputs of a mono block amplifier are there to easily connect multiple subwoofers. If you are not sure whether your amp is a mono block or a multi-channel model, look at the speaker terminals.

 

A Sub Makes A Difference

Obviously, you want to hear and feel the full effect of bass-heavy sound. A subwoofer is key to capturing those lower octaves, and can lighten the load on the rest of your system. If you plan on riding the bass particularly hard, consider investing in a capacitor. Your car’s electrical system wasn’t designed with Major Lazer in mind. A capacitor acts as your battery’s sidekick, storing up auxiliary power to meet your sub’s demands.
