Speakers are important, but they aren’t all alike. Of course, some speakers are manufactured with higher standards of quality, but this isn’t the only thing you need to worry about. Speakers can be divided into basic classes based on the sounds they’re designed to reproduce accurately. Some are geared towards higher pitches, while others are made for the low end sounds that let you feel the beat blasting as you drive along.

Making sure you’ve got the right speakers in the right places is crucial. The speakers that replicate bass sounds are necessarily larger and heavier. They require proper rear mounting that takes your car’s structure into account. A vehicle is a massive conglomeration of parts, and vibrations in the wrong areas disrupt ideal performance, not to mention cause undue wear over time.

You must be certain to place and mount your speaker system properly. Speakers that aren’t securely fixed tend to rattle, leading to decreases in sound quality and material damage, so it would behove you to learn something about the necessary precautions.

Good stereo installs include custom mounts for all components. While the head-unit or radio face may need little more than brackets and screws to slide smoothly into the dashboard, your amplifier, wiring and speakers must all be firmly tied down, often requiring their own shelves or boxes for added stability.

Finally, you must prepare your car stereo system for appropriate power generation. You’ll need an amplifier that can boost the power of your regular audio signal so that it moves the heavy bass speaker cones back and forth with little trouble. Make sure you match your amplifier’s power level to that of your speakers so that nothing burns out.
