Car stereo experts agree. The single best thing you can do to improve car audio sound quality is to replace the original factory speakers with quality aftermarket speakers. Without doing anything else to your car’s audio system, you’ll experience clear, vibrant sound, and hear aspects of songs you probably weren’t aware of. Of course, if you’re upgrading your entire sound system, new speakers should be at the top of the list of components to be replaced.

There is a big difference in design and materials between original equipment and aftermarket speakers. Speakers aren’t as important to vehicle manufacturers as engines and brakes. Factory speakers are typically built to a price, using cheap materials: low grade paper cones, foam surrounds, and small magnets. The result is poor sound, and since the materials can’t withstand the environment in a typical car, they deteriorate and the sound gets even worse.

The brands we carry, on the other hand, specialize in audio equipment. That focus enables them to create cutting edge designs and use superior materials that result in better sound quality. Woofer cones are made of high grade paper, and polypropylene that is blended with other materials, coated, or injection molded; tweeters are constructed with silk or silk/polymer composite; and speaker surrounds are made of butyl rubber, and urethane. With aftermarket speakers, your music will sound the way the artists and sound engineers intended back in the recording studio.

We offer both full range and component speakers in a wide range of sizes and wattage. Full range speakers come in 2-way or 3-way versions. 2-way speakers, also known as coaxial speakers, have a woofer for low, bass tones, and a tweeter for high notes. 3-way speakers have a mid-range driver in addition to a woofer and tweeter. Full range speakers are ideal for replacing factory speakers, because they can be installed in the same locations, usually in the door panels. They’re also a good choice if you have limited space to mount speakers, and when you want a sound upgrade with a minimum of effort.

As the name implies, component speakers are separate speakers designed to be used within a system. Typically, a component system has two tweeters, two woofers, and a crossover. The crossover is wired in between the amplifier and speakers, and its function is to separate the high and low frequencies and send them to the appropriate speakers, thereby reducing distortion. If you have the mounting space, component systems allow you to position the speakers within the cabin for superior sound quality. Tweeters should be mounted higher in the cabin than woofers.

The speaker wattage, the amount of power it can handle, should be matched to the power output of the amplifier. Always go by the RMS, or continuous power output rating, not the peak power rating. All speakers also have a sensitivity rating. A speaker with a high sensitivity rating will work better and be louder with a lower powered amplifier, while a lower sensitivity rated speaker is better in a powerful system. To make installing your speakers easier, we offer spacers and adapters that will enable you to mount different size speakers in the original factory locations, or install speakers in new places within the cabin.

    If your current car stereo doesn't produce sound that's as clean, crisp, and listenable as what comes out of a high quality set of headphones, chances are it's because one or more of your speakers are past their prime, compromised, or even blown. If you're not the original owner of your vehicle, you have no idea how much or how little any previous owners abused the stereo system. Most OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) speakers in vehicles naturally lose quality over time no matter how they're treated, and if you spend 30 minutes or more in your car each day, you'll appreciate the benefits that higher quality aftermarket speakers offer over OEM ones.
