In today’s newer vehicles we find all sorts of high-tech features like, Bluetooth, USB Ports, Satellite radio etc….
But for those out there rocking a cassette player there is still hope for you to have a high-tech system! Upgrading your stereo system is fairly simple and you can find all you need at your local Walmart or even on Amazon. First you need to decide on what exactly do you want, if you have most of your music on your phone or tablet then I’d suggest purchasing a Bluetooth or USB capable CD player, I personal like Pioneer,Boss, JVC and Sony. Now that you’ve purchased your new CD player it’s time for your to decide on what type of speakers and how many, when I shop for new speakers I tend to stick with 2-4 high and mid range and 2 sub-woofers.
Finding The Right Speakers and Equipment
What I like to do when shopping for a new car system I tend to stick with all the same brand! Sony makes descent speakers and amplifiers, which you will definitely need 1 or 2 amplifiers to power your sub-woofers and Highs and Mids. Now when upgrading your system your going to need speaker wire, usually when purchasing a kit they will include wiring for your speakers and amplifiers. One mistake people make when upgrading there car system is using to many Sub-Woofers or to little, having too many will drown out your music and all you will hear is the bass along with having a cracked windshield, having too little and you won’t have the proper thud when the bass hits.
Along with wiring your going to need a descent battery, I prefer purchasing a deep cycle battery to power my system!
You may want to look into Sub-Woofer Boxes which will give your speakers a better sound and bass along with a place to house your speakers. When looking for Sub-Woofer boxes it’s best to make sure they are well constructed and sealed properly, you don’t want any cracks or holes.
Having the right placement for your speakers is important, some people may not have the option to place the subwoofers in the trunk so where is the next best place? If you have room under your seats that would be the next best place for your subwoofers to go, putting them in the rear speaker deck under your back window is a bad idea and best reserved for your High’s and Mid’s.
Wait a minute I don’t have an option for putting my speakers under my seats, well there is one more option and that is mounting them behind the seats, which most people do. Mounting them behind the seats will give you room in your trunk as well as a good bass sound inside of the vehicle.
Moving on to your Highs and Mid range speakers, which can be mounted inside the doors, under the rear speaker deck or even under the seats, however if you decide to mount them under your seat its best to purchase a box to mount them in so that later you may move them around.
Personally I don’t like having a bunch of accessories, but you can also trick out your interior and exterior with Glow lights which you can find kits on Amazon and other stores. Having too many things going on for me would take away from everything else, especially if you decide to install tv’s, game consoles etc.. I prefer to have a killer Stereo System and that’s it. But if you do decide to trick your car out with lights there are some pretty cool things you can do like setting your lights to brightening when the bass hits or even change color. However adding all sorts of high tech stuff to your car can create a fire hazard, especially when it comes to adding lights to the interior of your car, which is one reason I stay away from adding to many accessories to my interior, having a good system is enough!
