Enhance Your Audio With Top-of-the-Line Car Stereo Systems From Sound Sensations

Time to blow out the candles and make a wish! Let us guess: You’re hoping for some car audio enhancements. Maybe you’d like a more modern head unit for your dash or better quality speakers that don’t miss a beat. Or perhaps you’re dreaming of subwoofers with a dynamic and powerful bass you can actually feel.

If there’s any time to upgrade your car stereo, it’s for your birthday. After all, they only come around once a year. You deserve to turn up the volume on your celebration.

So you can get the most bang for your buck, we’ve compiled the five best car stereo installations that are worth treating yourself to.

Modernize Your Head Unit

If you’re a music lover, you need a system that supports high-resolution audio. The latest car stereos let you listen to your favorite tunes uncompressed and just as the artist intended them to be heard.

An upgraded head unit can also help bring an older vehicle into the modern age. A stereo installation that includes Apple CarPlay or Android Auto will allow you to integrate your favorite smartphone apps and features into an in-dash touchscreen capable of music streaming, GPS navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, hands-free calling, and more.

Replace Your Stock Speakers

Auto manufacturers generally try to include too many components in small speakers, making it difficult to clearly hear music, podcasts, and other audio. Throw road noise in there, and you have a sound quality disaster.

Aftermarket car speakers are specially designed to take your soundscape to a whole new level, bringing out the brightest highs and deepest lows. We rely on brands like Pioneer, JL Audio, and Rockford Fosgate to make your ride more luxurious and engaging without the giant dent to your wallet. Also because aftermarket speakers are made from more durable materials, they can withstand extreme temperatures and last longer than the ones your automaker used in your ride.

Make Some Space For Bass in Your Car Stereo

If you really want to step up your car stereo game, you’re going to want a subwoofer. Having ample bass is the difference between a good listening experience and a great one. You’ll get to enjoy accurate and detailed low frequencies whether you’ve got the volume cranked up or turned down.

Subwoofers come in varying shapes, sizes, and packages, so there’s something for every need and vehicle size. More and more brands are developing compact designs that take up less precious cargo space and can be installed under the seats or unobtrusively in the trunk.

Amp Up Your Listening Experience

Amplifiers work in tandem with your subwoofers and tweeters to put out optimal sound and curb distortion. Most subwoofers aren’t able to run off of your car’s built-in amp and need an aftermarket model to achieve the big bass they’re capable of. Amplifiers can also do a world of wonders for overcoming noise pollution from the road.

But one of the biggest benefits of adding an amp to your car stereo installation is the opportunity for customization. You can take control in your system settings and make updates wherever you see fit, like making the bass deeper in that song you always have on repeat or enhancing the sound effects in the audiobook you’re currently listening to.

Strike the Ultimate Balance

A digital processor is like a control board for your car stereo system. It can take each audio component in your vehicle and optimize their outputs for greater alignment, balance, and tuning.

Consider the distribution of your car’s speakers, for instance. If you’re in the driver’s seat, the speakers up front reach your ears first compared to those in the back. Because you’re hearing different sounds at different times, this can result in a less harmonized experience. Digital processors solve this with signal delay features that time the output of selected speakers.

Additionally, digital processing lets you better tune your system - no matter if it's a factory unit or an aftermarket car stereo installation. Digital processors ensure the right signal is coming from the right speaker. No one wants high-pitched frequencies sent to their subs. Once channels have been correctly assigned, you can fine-tune and mix the sound exactly to your preferences.
