For more years then I can recollect, I’ve been associated with car audio. Though the car companies have really enhanced their stock sound in recent times, they nonetheless aren’t able to reach the quality made available by after market car audio equipment. Over the years, one topic which is constantly discussed is what are the best car speakers in the marketplace. Honestly speaking, it is obvious that the answer is purely subjective and according to one’s relationship with a particular car speaker brand.
In the real world it would be very uncommon if a salesman ever endorsed anything other then the brand he personally sells as the best car speakers. Although salesmen might come in contact with a variety of brand names, their motive for recommending any given car speaker needs to be suspect since their sale is his source of earnings. That’s the reason why it is nice to report the findings of an unofficial study determined by years of feedback and suggestions from actual users of different brands of car audio speakers. This appeals to most as one of the best means of judging performance of any speaker in the real world environment of car audio. We hear a lot of times about a consumer who loved the speakers in the show room and then grew weary of them after they were set up in his vehicle. Our survey results reflect the feelings of owners after daily use over periods of months as well as years.
Our survey has established Alpine speakers to be among the most preferred car speakers on the market. Those speakers are favorites among serious car audio enthusiasts in addition to those new to the hobby of car audio. To be judged best car speakers, the speakers considered must be effective at producing good sound quality when played at all power levels. Often certain makes of car speakers will tend to lose decent sound quality when played at higher levels. This naturally would disqualify them from being judged among the best. It also is good to make use of a consumer survey because obviously this would reflect a speaker’s use when powered by a standard receiver and in addition by various power amplifiers used in many vehicles.
In addition to full range speakers, we’re invariably asked about the best car audio subwoofers in the marketplace. A subwoofer is really a large speaker made just to reproduce those deep bass frequencies which add a lot to the richness and pleasure of nearly any type of music. The universal winner as best subwoofers has been the Kicker subwoofer for several years now. Although car speakers are usually installed in factory locations, adding a subwoofer takes somewhat more effort. The car audio subwoofer needs a subwoofer enclosure matched for the specific sub. The installer just has to think about available space before deciding upon which size subwoofer is desired.
However the nice thing about improving your car’s sound system is the fact that most of us spend more hours every day in our car or truck then we do in our homes. So upgrading ones vehicle’s sound system with the best car speakers readily available just makes good sense.
