Why are in dash DVD screens so popular?
People usually purchase an in-dash DVD player for two reasons. The first is ease of system control and GPS navigation. The large screen makes it easier to see stereo settings and other menu options. Touchscreen controls let you use a 6.5- or 7-inch screen to make system changes. It is very handy and much safer when you’re in traffic. In-dash navigation, a growing trend in new car stereo purchases, brings you the incredible benefits of GPS guidance displayed on a big screen. You can also install a back up camera to help you see what is behind you when you are backing up.
Is your factory car stereo system not satisfying enough for you or just dont seem to have very much power?
The first step would be consider replacing your factory speakers with quality aftermarket speakers. If your speakers are not that clear or just not up to your expectations a set of aftermarket speakers will help out. The truth is most factory stereo systems suffer and will continue to suffer no matter what is powering them. Second, a new CD player or amplifier will provide better power for your speakers, giving you an immediate boost in sound quality by helping the speakers deliver more accurate sound. Adding a subwoofer brings in low audio frequencies that other speakers cant produce.
Why add an amplifier?
If you want your music to be loud, clean and crisp amplifiers are definitely something you should be looking for. But whether you run your system wide open or softly enough for conversation, a power amplifier will add life into your music, bringing out all of its excitement. Some main benefits of adding an amp:
-Better sound quality — Adding an amplifier gives you a clean power source that can drive your speakers without straining. Unlike an amplifier built into an in-dash stereo, an external power amp isn’t limited by the space available. It can be designed without compromises. That means your music will sound cleaner and more defined at all volume levels.
-Power for upgraded speakers — A factory system or an in-dash receiver may not do justice to your upgraded speakers. If you’re adding high-quality aftermarket speakers or component systems to your vehicle, they may require more power for peak performance than your existing in-dash receiver can provide.
-Powering a subwoofer — Subwoofers require a lot more power than a aftermarket CD player or factory in-dash receiver can provide. An amplifier is definatley required for a subwoofer.
Why add a sub?
Subwoofers are speakers dedicated strictly to reproducing low frequencies. No matter what kind of music you like, or how soft or loud you like to listen to your music, subwoofers are a crucial part of your overall listening experience. Small car speakers have trouble producing enough low-frequency sound to give your music realism and depth. A subwoofer can make the difference between a good-sounding and a great-sounding system.
There are a lot of different ways to add a subwoofer to your vehicle. Which one is right for you depends on a lot of different factors, including your musical tastes, budget, and how much space you have available in your vehicle.
