A cool new car deserves a cool new entertainment system in place. Right? So, here’s what you should buy.
It’s a common site to see a car slowly roll in and park next you, its neon lights flashing underneath and music thumping out so loud, it would probably shame new generation auditoriums. We don’t care much about the rest. But the stereo matters, especially if you want your car to have that edgy feel about it. Car stereos are not just great stress busters when you’re caught in maddening traffic, but they also double up as mini discotheques on the move. But, how do you go about choosing the best? Here is the low down: a car audio system consists of four basic components: the head unit, amplifier, speakers and auxiliary input devices.
One must know the amount of power a speaker can handle. This is important when dealing with woofers, since it requires more power to play loudly. Make sure that the power measures in Roller Music System (RMS) watts. What sort of music you listen to also makes a difference. If you like to listen to bass-heavy music, you should get powerful amplifiers and ample subwoofers. If your music taste runs to pop, though, you would want a speaker system that can reproduce the entire audio spectrum evenly.
