If you are the type of person who loves great-sounding music, and you think your factory-installed car stereo sounds lousy, Adrenaline Autosound in Clayton, North Carolina, is here to help. We have clients who contact us all the time, looking to replace their bad sounding factory systems with something that can provide a concert like experience in their cars. Let’s explore why a typical car stereo sounds so bad, and the most popular ways to fix it.
Factory-installed speakers are lousy. If we had an easy way to take the speakers out of your vehicle and show them to you, even an untrained eye would see that they look cheap. Thin paper cones, small magnets and very limited excursion (how far a speaker can move back and forth) are a bad recipe if you are looking for great sound. Vehicle manufacturers are continuing to look for ways to save money when building a vehicle. As the trend continues toward bigger, bolder touchscreen displays in the dash, money has to be pulled from somewhere else to hit “magical” selling prices. In many cases, the speakers take the hit. What you, the consumer, end up with is a stereo system in your dash that sounds like an AM radio.
Factory Speaker Upgrades
The good news is that Adrenaline often can install new speakers in the factory locations and completely transform the sound quality of your vehicle. If you have a base model vehicle that didn’t come with tweeter locations, we can install those for you. Tweeters are the small speakers that are used to reproduce high frequencies in your music. They reproduce everything from the “sizzle” in your electric guitar to an “airiness” to a vocalist’s voice. Without them, your music sounds dull and lifeless.
Factory Stereo Units
Your factory stereo system also lacks real bass. Let’s face it, we all like bass. From the smack of a kick drum to the feeling we get when a bassist plucks on that top string, bass makes the music fun. To reproduce bass properly, you need a subwoofer. Many stock stereo systems lack a real subwoofer, and instead rely on the front and rear speakers to reproduce that bass we all love. And they can’t do it. Adrenaline Autosound can add a subwoofer to your stock stereo system, giving you bass that will make your music come alive. Don’t worry about taking up lots of trunk space – our master craftsmen can build you a subwoofer enclosure that takes up almost no space, yet will reproduce your music with authority.
Maybe you are the type of person who really loves your music. No stock stereo system has ever impressed you. We understand, and are here to help. Our team can install a sound processor to strip away the equalization that was added to the music by your car stereo in a feeble attempt to make cheap speakers sound good. Then, we will install new speakers, an amplifier, and a subwoofer, giving you the complete package.
Once it is all installed, our team will fine-tune each and every speaker in the vehicle, maximizing it for sound quality. The end result will truly be a concert on wheels, giving you studio-quality sound with concert-level volume.
