While the products you choose for your car stereo upgrade are as important as the way we integrate them into your vehicle, what makes an audio system from Adrenaline Autosound in Clayton stand above the rest is in its configuration and tuning. Our installation team is not only fanatical about the products we sell and installation services we offer, but we dedicate an appropriate amount of time to ensure those solutions are optimized for the challenges found in an automotive interior. Read on to find out why proper tuning is crucial to a mobile audio system’s performance and is a key component in the services we offer.
The Acoustic Challenges of Automotive Interiors
If you were to take a high-quality bookshelf speaker out of your living room or den and move it into a spartan office, the sound you hear would change dramatically. The difference in sound is not caused by the speaker, but by the acoustic characteristics of the room.
Different materials in your vehicle absorb and reflect sounds in different ways. Because a large percentage of your interior is made up of glass and other hard surfaces, managing and fine-tuning an audio system for these challenging acoustic conditions takes dedicated tools and a carefully engineered tuning process.
Every high-end home theatre or recording studio in the world sounds the way it does because the installation technicians have tuned each speaker for the acoustics of the room. Even live concerts in stadiums, clubs, concert halls and dedicated venues benefit from careful tuning to get great sound.
Audio System Tuning Takes More Than Just Tools
We have invested in high-quality calibrated test equipment as part of our commitment to excellence. While having this equipment is crucial to creating a realistic and lifelike listening experience, knowing how to use the equipment and interpret the results is equally important. We’ve developed a process that combines a multitude of measurements in a very short amount of time to ensure our system configurations deliver smooth frequency response that makes instruments and voices sound real. At the same time, our audio system design, installation and tuning process creates a realistic soundstage in front of the listener. The result is similar to listening to a high-end home audio system, but with the convenience of being able to commute to and from work.
The Importance of Digital Signal Processing
As we are designing an upgrade for your car audio system, it’s likely that we’ll mention the need for a digital signal processor. Whether it’s a stand-alone unit to work with your existing amplifiers or a solution built into a new amp, a signal processor allows us to fine-tune the frequency response and signal-delay settings for each speaker in your vehicle. Only when these criteria are optimized will your stereo system come to life with an amazingly accurate soundstage, excellent imaging and sound that rivals a live performance.
Stereo System Upgrades for Any Application
Our detailed vehicle inspection and measurement process enables us to upgrade the sound system in any vehicle. Whether your car or truck has a basic radio or an elaborate premium audio system from Bose, Lexicon, Revel, Mark Levinson, Meridian, Krell, Bowers & Wilkins, Bang & Olufsen or Burmester, we can improve the clarity, detail, bass response and overall volume capabilities to make your commute a truly enjoyable listening experience.
