How much do you know about car audio systems? Our quick quiz will help to confirm some truths and dispel some myths that surround car audio and video systems. See how many you already know the answer to.
LED Screens Are Better for Car Entertainment Systems than LCD Screens
True. First of all, LEDs use a lot less power, so that means less strain on your battery and alternator. Second, LED screens can be made much thinner, so they are great for fitting into any location in the car. The only real downside to an LED screen can be the viewing angle, so it is all about placing screens in the right location for passengers.
Unless I Have Super Hearing, I Won’t Notice the Difference in Audio
False. Unless you are half deaf, you’re going to be able to tell the difference between a good audio system and a great audio system the second a song begins to play. Even if all you listen to in your car is talk radio and audio books, words are going to be much clearer when you have professional speakers and other stereo equipment.
Tweeters Should Be Placed Close to My Other Speakers
True. Sound travels fast, but not that fast. You may actually hear the difference if you are a few feet closer to your mid-range speakers than your tweeters.
Speaker Wires Need to All Be the Same Length
False. Electricity is faster than sound. Way faster. While it only travels about 1/100 of the speed of light, it is traveling at nearly a million times the speed of sound. You can have a foot of speaker wire on one side of your car and fill the door with it on the other side, and you would never notice the difference.
