Before car sound system only has an AM and FM radio, then came the tape player, then tape deck combo and now we have CD players. Some cars even have DVD players with screen. It’s not wise though to watch a movie or TV while driving as it could lead you into accidents.

The quality of sound coming from our audio system depends on the following factors: the acoustic of your car, amps, speakers, and interruptions from your car’s devices.

Car audio system nowadays comes with an in-dash CD player, radio receiver, and a device that would allow you to play WMA music files. Some audio sound system also comes with a tape player in addition to multiple CD player. Another option would be is to hook your CD player to your car using a cable, adapter, or even through Bluetooth. These are just some of the types of auto sound systems that you can choose from.

Another thing to consider is the aesthetics of your car audio system especially if you are customizing it. It’s important to consider that your head or deck should blend it with your car’s dashboard and other already existing gadgets of your car such as computer screens, or GPS.

The quality of sound from your car stereo depends on the type or how good your speakers are. Basically, there are only two types of speakers, coaxial and component. Coaxial speakers are the type commonly used in cars because it is easy to install and practical. Coaxial is already a complete speaker with the tweeters and woofer built into one piece. Component speakers are used when a person wants something more in a sound. It allows you to listen to various frequencies separately because it separates the tweeters and woofers. With component speakers, you can distinctly feel the booming sound of the drum solo or the bass plus the distinctly high sounds from the tweeters.
