The most important aspect of a car’s purchase is the infotainment system. Users value it as intuitive, simple to use, resistant, and striking.
90% drivers enjoy driving with music. This is evident whether we are going to work, when we have hundreds or even miles of road ahead or when we encounter a massive traffic jam. These situations are great times to listen to quality music. Do you want to have a convincing sound system in your car? These are the key factors to selecting the best car audio equipment.
It is difficult to decide whether to replace the original source. Newer cars are more likely to integrate the screen with their infotainment system. It is therefore difficult to fill the gap left by the screen, as other functions can be removed if it is replaced.
What can we do with the source audio?
Other than high-end cars and sound packages signed by top developers (BOSE/Kardon Alpine, Harman/Kardon Rockford Fosgate Pioneer, JBL), there are no exceptions to this rule. The audio source is fine.
Although it may not be of the highest quality, it is still acceptable. It is best to either replace it with one of a better quality or to upgrade to an audio system that includes all the options offered by the manufacturer.
We will need to search for a good car stereo if we decide to replace the original audio equipment. An external AM/FM radio is another option. However, it does not have the same quality sound as car radios.
If we choose a sound source (either a CD radio, or multimedia receiver), it is important that it has excellent sound quality. It must also have RCA outputs for connecting the amplifier.
It would be great if it could allow equalization as well as time alignment, filtering and filtering. Everything will depend on each individual’s needs in terms of connectivity or multimedia: Bluetooth, USB and iPod, browsers, etc.
It is essential to have the best speakers and the best amplification at the front when you want the best quality.
What does a good amplifier need to look like?
To make the most of the dynamic potential of the amplifier/amplifiers, they must have a high S/N and low harmonic distortion.
It is crucial to concentrate on the best front speakers and the corresponding amplifier when you are trying to achieve the highest quality.
It depends on what you are looking for. If we want to improve the sound quality of the four seats, then it would be worthwhile upgrading all the speakers. It would be a bad idea if we are looking for maximum quality at the front.
The fact that there are more speakers does not necessarily mean better quality. It is evident that the rear speakers produce an indirect sound and reflections, which can cause the front to lose its precision.
It is important that the speakers have separate channels for the front channel, and offer a good linear frequency graph.
This is the most common and correct thing. The woofer, tweeter, and surrounds should be made from soft materials like paper, propylene, and silk. If we want a pleasant sound, If we prefer a stronger sound, we’ll choose harder materials (aluminium or kevlar).
A subwoofer is essential if you want to experience the sub-bass sounds in all styles.
The musical preferences of each person will determine the choice. For example, if you like the sound of the subwoofer shaking in your body, and a loud, exaggerated bass, mount one of 12″-15″ in Bass Reflex with an amplifier between 400 to 1,000 W rms.
A subwoofer 10″ to 12 inches in size and an amplifier of 200 to 500 W rms is best for you if you prefer instrumental, classical, or jazz music.
Last but not least, wiring – It is important to remember that signal cables and RCA cables have shielding to prevent interference. However, speakers must have a greater area of 1.0 m2 to avoid excessive electrical resistance. This would impact the damping of speakers.
To avoid overheating, the wiring of an electric power supply must include a section that is suitable for the power of equipment.
