Before you have new speakers installed in your car, it is important to know a little bit about what you are getting into so an installer can’t sell you more than what you need. We’re going to debunk three myths about car audio speakers, so you don’t get taken for a ride while trying to upgrade your audio system.
Myth #1 – You Can’t Get Good Sound from a Speaker in a Door
The main issue with door speakers isn’t the quality of the sound. It’s that you can’t use directional speakers because they are usually pointing at your calf, not your ears. However, something like a mid-bass driver doesn’t have to be as directional as something like a tweeter. Thus, using your doors for speaker placement is all about knowing which speakers will work best in a certain location.
Myth #2 – The Door Speaker Grill Will Destroy My Sound Quality
Once again, this goes back to putting the right kind of speaker in the door. The issue with those grills that manufacturers put over stock door speakers is that they redirect sounds that have a shorter wavelength. If you use a speaker that will only produce sounds with a longer wavelength, the grill will have little to no effect on sound quality.
Myth #3 – My Subwoofer Size Doesn’t Have to Match My Other Speakers
In part, it depends on what you want your music to sound like. But for balanced sound, you want to cone size of all of your speakers to be equal. This ensures that all of your speakers are moving the same amount of air.
