Car Stereo Speakers
March 1, 2006
Car speakers are an integral part of the car radio system. Their function is to absorb the signals from the power amplifier and deliver them to you. There are three components that speakers in delivering sound – tweeters, woofers, and midrange drivers.
The tweeter and the woofer manage low and high frequency sounds, respectively. As the name implies, the midrange drivers manage the midrange frequency.
You need to choose the amplifier and woofer based on your car speaker and what you want to install in terms of a car stereo system. Mostly, speakers are installed with other components in such a way that they produce the maximum sound. But remember that others may be inconvenienced because of these "noise makers," as they are sometimes referred to.
You can opt for different kinds and brands for the front and rear end speakers so that they blend perfectly to produce superior quality sound.
For example, you can choose Oxygen sphere 100s for front speakers. You need to choose a CD player that allows you to add features in the future, and possesses a good amplification system and excellent sound quality. You may or may not go in for a subwoofer. In such a case, it would be better if you opt for full range speakers placed on a MDF parcel shelf.
To utilize the available space in a car, usually speakers are installed in doors. However, the quality of sound produced is sometimes compromised because of the service holes in the doors. The basic function of a speaker is to receive electric signals and convert them into sound. It is not always true that expensive speakers produce high – quality sound.
Factors like resonance and inertial effects determine the efficiency of speakers. Powered speakers have built-in amplifiers and can be directly connected to a sound source.
