Simply put, factory speakers aren’t the best. The vehicle manufacturer gives low priority to a vehicle’s sound system, giving you something that’s just OK.
Aftermarket Speakers –
- Give you better sound quality, crispness, and clarity,
- Tend to be constructed better than factory ones,
- Are made with high quality materials, built from sophisticated designs, and state-of-the-art technology
What type of speakers do you need?
Full Range – these contain all the speaker elements in one. They consist of a woofer for the lows, a tweeter to produce the highs, and some have additional drivers such as mid-range for the middle frequencies. Full range speakers can be a good option if you’re looking to simply replace factory speakers. They come in a variety of sizes that can be mounted easily into factory speaker locations.
Component – these systems include separate woofers and tweeters to give you a superior design and a more detailed sound. There is also an external crossover to separate the bass/mid-range and high frequencies.
Coaxial – these are comprised of a driver and a tweeter. The driver reproduces the bass and midrange frequencies and the tweeter reproduces the high. The crossover used in coaxial speakers is usually attached to the baskets of the speaker, so no external mounting is required.
