It is easy to get a good enough car audio system. Most cars come with an audio system that is good enough, and with a few choice upgrades you can have a passable car sound system. However, for true music lovers, “good enough” isn’t good enough.

Car Stereo City in San Diego is home to a team of car audio specialists, providing expertise when it comes to building car audio systems that instantly invoke the envy of the entire block. Car Stereo City outlines how to build the best car audio system on your block below, but to get started contact us today by calling (858) 277-1823.

1. Get High-Quality Car Speakers

First things first, you need to get yourself a set of awesome speakers to replace the factory car speakers currently installed in your vehicle. By upgrading from middle of the road factory speakers to booming aftermarket speakers, you can make a drastic change in the quality of your car audio system. Replacing your car’s speakers are a great first step towards building the ultimate car stereo system.

2. Use Sound Deadening Products

Sound deadening materials, made by vendors such as Dynamat and Hushmat, can help elevate your sound system. The thin metal next to car stereo systems can vibrate when you are listening music, and sound deadening products reduce these vibrations to create a better environment for high-quality sound. Sound deadening products can also lower the noise level inside your car, so you do not have to crank up the stereo when you are zooming down the freeway to block out the sounds of the road.

3. Install a Car Amplifier

An amplifier adds performance to all of your speakers and subwoofers, allowing for loud music that still has amazing sound quality. If your car audio system is missing an amplifier, your car audio system is incomplete.

4. Get a Subwoofer and a Sub Box

A subwoofer is needed to give your music some “boom” to it, bringing balance to your music. However, when installing a new subwoofer it is essential to make sure you have a sealed sub box that perfectly fits both the interior of your car and the subwoofer. If the sub box does not fit the subwoofer or space properly, you can get poor sound quality or eventually damage the subwoofer.

5. Use High-Quality Cables

While it is obvious that you should only get premium speakers and amps, it is less clear that you should also splurge for high-quality cables. High-quality cables do a better job of carrying an electrical current, meaning your amplifier will be running on all cylinders and produce a more rich, detailed sound.
