Back Up Camera Is Essential

parking-safety-360x20011Backing up is one of the most challenging tasks that we do while driving. Backup cameras and backup sensor  are  a great help. Reversing out of a parking spot or pulling out of a driveway, our vision is limited, which can lead to dangerous situations. Backup cameras and backup sensors are only solution for reducing that danger.

Even if your car or truck does not have a display or screen, we here at Boyzaudio can easily add one and mount a rearview backup camera on your vehicle.A rear view mirror with screen to display images from your backup camera while in reverse.

Backup camera styles and options    image

At  BoyzAudio, we carry several styles of backup cameras. There are three main types to choose from:

• Plate- and bar-style cameras that mount on your vehicle’s license plate.

• Plug or knockout cameras that fit into a vehicle’s factory mount hole for a rearview camera.

• Keyhole camera, which is usually flush-mounted to a vehicle’s bumper.

Each backup camera style is designed to give you a wide field of view regardless of where it is mounted. Some rearview cameras have “night vision” LEDs to help illuminate the path behind the vehicle on dark nights.

Backup sensors use radar to alert your to objects behind you while your vehicle is in reverse.

Backup sensors are getting more and more popular with drivers every day. These systems are installed into your back bumper and turn on when you are backing up. If there is an object behind you, the sensors make a series of beeps to alert you of the danger, and these will get faster as you get closer to the object.  Having your system installed professionally by BoyzAudio ensures that all of the connections are made properly and will withstand the elements where necessary. This is especially true with truck backup camera systems, where connections and cables are run under truck beds.

  To find out more about our backup cameras and backup sensors and make your driving safer, please stop by our store in 2150 Steeles Ave W #8, Toronto, ON L4K 2Y7 or call us at 647-719-2016

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.

Things to Know about Car Audio System

 

Are you a fan of music? Are you looking forward to upgrading the sound system of your car to boost its sound so you can enjoy the beat of your favorite songs while driving?

There are plenty of places where you can get the best car audio accessories – the dealers, the shops, and even the internet. When getting the audio accessories, start off with the basic audio system then slowly upgrade and move forward to the much more complex components which will improve both bass and sound. You‘ll need to browse through various stores and set your budget.

Do your research and make a checklist as to what things you would like to prioritize on first, so you won‘t feel like you are in it over your head. The most important thing after making a list is sticking to your budget.

First thing‘s first. Look for a quality head unit for your car and at the lower end, you can purchase a basic car CD and mp3 player which has user friendly functions. If your budget isn‘t much of a problem in this department, the higher up price bracket for head units has more functions with more gadgets. A more expensive head unit can have a dampening function, making your listening experience more pleasurable. There are also simple head units that have an increased quality of output, so the choice boils down to which type you really want.

After deciding on the type of head unit you‘ll be getting, decide on the car audio accessories you‘ll be using. If you want to hear the music throughout the car with perfect sound, you will need coaxial mid-range speakers. These should be carefully placed in the rear, behind the back passenger seat. You can also add a tweeter on the front, near the head unit. This will enable you to hear the higher pitches in the music. As for the bass, getting two subwoofers is the best, but one will still do its job. If the budget is still quite tight, you can start off with getting a small subwoofer which measures around 10 to 12 inches.

These won‘t take up too much room in the car and they are the least expensive. Your decision will depend on whether you are particular about the quality of the sound coming out of the speakers. If you listen to music with heavy bass, focus on the subwoofers. But if you listen to a variety of music, it is best to go for all car audio accessories that will allow you to hear all spectrums of sounds.

Next thing you‘ll need to get is an amp. The job of an amp is to regulate the power of the car audio accessories. You will need a 4 channel amp to channel the power to the front and back speakers. This type of amp makes it easier to adjust levels between front and back than a 2 channel amp.
