Today, a stereo system has become a must-have feature for any car. But, having a sound system is often not enough because your car should have all the modern and smart features that younger generations have come to expect.
We have seen many car enthusiasts getting confused over what features make a stereo system ideal. Well, the answer is right here in this post.
Read on to know how you can make your sound system an ideal one!
1. Find out what you require
Well, it is not necessary that the loudest and most expensive audio system is ideal for a car. Your requirements can vary from other people. So, the first step to getting the best sound system is to figure out what kind of features you need.
Maybe, you are not getting the best solutions straight away. But that’s okay, just have a look at your current system and then decide what additions can make it better.
2. The stereo system you have now
What type of stereo system you want depends on what kind of system you have right now. Determine whether you are happy with the way your existing system works.
Ask yourself if you enjoy your music on this system. If the answer is no, then your sound system is dull, flat and wimpy. Maybe, your car’s old radio is struggling to work with a flimsy speaker. But the good thing is that you can replace this old version with the latest one.
3. Analysing your radio
So what does your radio do? Does it stream music and makes phone calls with Bluetooth connectivity? Does it tune in to HD radio and satellite broadcasts? Maybe it helps you control your android, iPhone, iPod and other portable devices and also plays MP3 files and CDs?
Now, think whether you want to replace your receiver. Is the speaker blaring at a ridiculous level of volume or is the sound not loud enough. When you’ve got these answers sorted, you can start adding new features and replace the outdated ones entirely.
Now that you’ve evaluated the changes, it’s time to address them one by one.
1. Broken or old speakers?
Most of the factory-made speakers are either made of cheap materials or from lightweight paper. Even, if you have premium factory speakers, they usually distort or wear down faster. They might sound good at the time you buy your car, but after a few years, these will deteriorate.
So buy a new set of aftermarket speakers and improve the quality and volume of the sound. They are easy to fix and more affordable than a receiver. As they are made out of quality material, you can enjoy playing music on it with increased durability and better sound.
You can also buy full range speakers that have a combination of a midrange, a woofer and a tweeter that fit in your car easily.
If you are someone who loves to hear every single beat that plays with the volume on blast, go for a set of component speakers with separate tweeters and woofers to convert your dashboard into a soundstage.
2. Add the ‘oomph’ to your music
To enjoy each and every beat of the music, you need to add power to your speakers. This can be done by simply adding an amplifier. It will not only increase the volume without distorting it but also save you from the troubles of hearing tunes while windows are down or the sunroof is open.
It will level up the volume and add more zest to the sound system by bringing more clarity and highlighting various details.
3. Feel the beat with a subwoofer
Even though your speaker sounds good, the addition of a subwoofer will greatly enhance your stereo. To get the most of the music, augment the setup by adding an amplifier to the subwoofer. It will fill in the low notes that small speakers are simply unable to do.
Now, when your car is hitting the road with improved sound quality, why not add to its exterior look? You can simply enhance the look of your car with stylish car wrapping.
Also, make sure that the headlights, tyres and other small aspects of your car are looking good and working properly.
All of this will enhance your driving experience greatly.
