Car Stereo Systems
A factory custom car stereo will be able to provide adequate music quality, but for a person looking for the best and most customized car stereo experience, looking into new sound systems for cars is a must. Before heading to a custom car audio dealer, there are a number of things to understand so that the perfect system is purchased.
The receiver or head unit is the most important piece in sound systems for cars. This is where the audio is controlled and the specifications of the unit you select will determine the power range of the speakers and amplifiers that can be utilized. Purchasing an inexpensive receiver and subwoofers that are too powerful is a common mistake.
Common things to look for when selecting a receiver include making sure it has: the option to plug in an MP3 player, control for a CD changer, and a removable face or one that can be flipped and hidden from view.
In most cases, after-market receivers can be mounted seamlessly into an existing radio slot. There are a wide variety of kits available that make receivers fit perfectly. Just ensure that it will definitely work before purchasing. Having the unit installed professionally will ensure this. The receiver will optimize your custom car experience.
In any car system, the amplifier powers the speakers and ensures that a crisp and clean sound is always heard. This is always the case if the proper amplifier is installed to match the overall system. A good test of the amplifier is to listen to music at half volume. If the sound quality is still clear for your custom car audio, the amplifier is doing its job. If distorted, it may not be powerful enough.
Once the correct amplifier is purchased, it is just a matter of mounting it in the right spot. It can be hidden from sight and placed in almost any location as long as there is adequate airflow around the device.
The final piece when it comes to sound systems for cars is the speakers. Depending on the size and type of the vehicle, the location, type and number of speakers can greatly vary. More is not always better when it comes to providing the best overall sound. By looking at a budget and getting a recommendation from a sound professional, the right number and type of speakers can be recommended and then purchased by the customer.
For speakers that are mounted indoors, fit may be a concern. A more powerful speaker will be larger and have a larger magnet. Depending on the vehicle, larger speakers may or may not fit correctly.
Great car stereo systems can provide the driver and passenger with amazing enjoyment, but the wrong one can be an embarrassment or even painful to listen to. Before purchasing a system or customizing the car sound system, it is always good to do research and have a specific budget in mind. Finally, going to a reputable audio center will ensure the right purchase is made.
