Install an audio kit in your car
As with the sound from your Hi-Fi system or from your TV with a Home Cinema, the audio installation in your car is made up of several elements. Together, they bring you a sound reproduction at the top for your trips. For your car audio kit, you need:
A car amplifier: placed in your trunk and connected to your car radio, it amplifies the sound signal. This gives you better clarity of sound, more precise specialization and greater power at high volume. The amplifiers operate by channels. A 5-channel amplifier can for example support 4 speakers (front / rear) and a subwoofer / subwoofer.
Of auto speakers: some speakers directly integrate the different speakers necessary for the distribution of music for a minimum footprint. Other models, called “separate channel kit” opt for a function specific to each speaker in order to obtain a more precise sound quality and better specialization. The choice of the number of speakers to install will depend on your current configuration and your desires. If you travel often with 2 people, prefer to install it with 2 front speakers. If you are carrying passengers in the back, the installation of 2 additional rear speakers is essential so that they also benefit from top audio quality. Before you start, take care of the diameter of the speakers so that they fit into your cabin.
A car subwoofer / subwoofer: also placed in the trunk or under one of the seats, it gives more depth to your music, developing the whole range of bass.
A tailor-made travel playlist
Now that your racing car is fully equipped with an audio system, what about the musical selection?
