How to tune up your car audio system

Check the speaker stage

All the speakers in your car audio system should be out of step – in short, all the membranes should go in and out at the same time. Otherwise, bass reproduction will disappear, leaving your car audio system anemic and dark. It is important to check all speakers, even if the car audio system is professionally installed.

To find out if your vehicle’s speaker pair is on stage, listen to rich bass music on the side with balanced stereo controls. Now bring the balance control back to the center – you should hear a lot more bass. If not, your speakers will not be up to date. Replace the positive and negative wires with a speaker and try again. If you feel lower, no! Use this method to independently control the front and rear speakers.

Turn on your system’s subwoofer. Turn on the subwoofer speaker cables and hear the bass puzzle change. Again, if it gets stronger, let it be. Another tip: always make sure some compartments are linked in phase.

Adjust the equalizer and maximize the subwoofer

Bass dropping can be deceptive, especially if you have a slim bass guitar installed. But first, you need to set up your car audio system. When playing the equalizer, remember to make small changes where you need them most.

Start by setting the stereo equalizer: all tone controls are set to “0” and the equalizer is not activated. Turn off the subwoofer, set the familiar music to a moderate level, then slowly increase the subwoofer power until you reach a “sweet spot” – where the bass really stands out without outpacing the rest of the music.

When the bass feels it should be behind you, pull down the subwoofer connection to “move” the bass. If your amplifier has a non-adjustable crossover filter, try moving the subwoofer. There is a subwoofer for example. Pull back, rotate so that it pulls forward or on all sides. Remember to check your pace again when the submarine is in the final position.

Create an audio image on your dashboard

Your car audio system should create an “audio image”. This means that when you close your eyes you will hear the instruments as if they are right in front of you, from right to left (listening to a rock ‘n’ roll) with a rhythm. Drums, bass, and lead vocals in the center-right. When your sound environment is set up correctly, you will hear that the band is playing a set on your panel.

Blocks of death

Subwoofers eliminate low frequencies and improve the performance of previous speakers

Some high-visibility vehicles can be difficult to get in front of you, but there are a few solutions to help you get the sound you need:

If your car has small front speakers, install subwoofers. They filter out the low frequencies so that the speakers sound louder and clearer and bring you back to the soundscape. If your receiver has a built-in crossover filter, use a high pass filter to remove the bass from small speakers for better performance.

You need to install the best car stereo system to get the optimum level of experience.

If you have a subwoofer (or large speakers on the back) use the receiver’s parent to carry the music and then turn up the master level to bring the bass back into play.

If the front speakers are installed in low doors, the sound may be affected. Some receivers have independent front / rear tone controls or signal processing that enhance the scene. So, if possible, make these adjustments. Or, if possible, install the front speaker.

Just the right amount of bass in your music

Bass isn’t just for fans of rap, heavy metal, or reggae – if you’re a fan of classical or jazz music, you might be surprised at how quiet the subwoofer adds to your soundtrack. Even at low hearing levels, the subwoofer can produce an abundance and power that you wouldn’t otherwise hear.

Play music with active, powerful bass – all sticks should be annotated at the same volume. If you hear bass or noise, check your pitch and try different cut points until it’s flat. If the subwoofer is set up correctly, you can make small adjustments using the equalizers on the receiver.


Instead of disassembling the bass to increase system performance, turn it up slightly and reduce the highlights and mids. It pays to keep it as low as possible – pumping the subwoofer will only ruin the efficient performance of your car audio system.

Something is missing?

After a few hours of listening, you will begin to notice weaknesses in your car audio system.

Does the system seem boring?

 To enhance the previous picture and make the sound more vivid, install a set of tweeters. Many receivers have extensive signal processing or EQ to enrich the sound, which can greatly enhance a boring car audio system.

Are the rumors and the pills buried?

 If your receiver has a medium-sized control box, lift it slightly; If it includes a parametric equalizer, try a small extension between 400 and 1000 Hz. Replace high-quality mid-range speakers with high-frequency rear speakers to bring out the warmth and detail without extra stitching. Installing Dynamat in a vehicle reduces road noise by covering important details in between.

Wish system?

 If your previous speakers have center height speakers, remove them yourself. If you have composite sounds installed, check the crossover level of the output level – a 3 dB drop can drastically change how high-frequency sounds match the rest of the car system. Test your receiver with equalization. If that’s not good, consider adding more EQ or (for a stronger car audio system) external EQ.
