Car stereo experts agree. The single best thing which 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 will experience clear, vibrant, and evenly spread sound as well as hear aspects of songs you probably were not even aware of. Of course, if you've decided to upgrade your entire sound system, new speakers should be at the top of the list of components to be replaced.

There is significant difference in design and materials between original equipment and aftermarket speakers. Speakers are not of such vital importance to vehicle manufacturers as engines and brakes. Factory speakers are typically built to a price, using cheap materials, namely low grade paper cones, foam surrounds, and small magnets. As the result we get poor sound, and forasmuch as the materials can not 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. With a core focus on innovation and excellence they do their utmost to provide the most effective solutions to your needs. These brands create cutting-edge designs and utilize superior materials that result in great sound quality. Woofer cones are made from 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 from 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 which are 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. The full range speakers are ideal for replacing factory speakers, because they can be installed in the same locations, usually in the door panels. These premium speakers will become a good solution for those who have limited space inside the vehicle to mount speakers. They will also help upgrade the sound system of your auto with a minimum of effort and time.

    As the name suggests, component speakers are separate speakers which are specially 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. The function of the crossover lies in separating the high and low frequencies and send them to the appropriate speakers, in this manner reducing distortion. Upon the condition that you have the mounting space, component systems provide the possibility to position the speakers within the cabin which ensures excellent sound quality you are actually expecting to get. 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 an extensive line of top-quality spacers and adapters. These spacers and adapters will enable you to mount different size speakers in the original factory locations or install speakers in new places within the cabin.
