Upgrading a sound system in a gas-powered vehicle is simple. The battery is really only for the electronic ignition. Once the car is on, the sound system is one of the main things that the battery is powering. For electric vehicles, the battery is powering the entire car. This adds an element of difficulty when it comes to upgrades. However, the short answer is – yes, you can upgrade the factory sound system in your EV. Here are a few tips.
- Don’t change the head unit – The touchscreen display in an EV is usually customized for the electrical system in the car. You don’t want to mess with changing that around. The good news is that these manufacturer displays are usually great for operating an upgraded car audio system.
- Upgrade the speakers / add a subwoofer – New speakers are going to give you the most notable difference in sound, so don’t be afraid to upgrade the manufacturer speakers or even to add a subwoofer.
- Hire a professional – Don’t try to work on an electric vehicle yourself unless you really know what you are doing. Hire a professional car audio installation company that has experience working with electric vehicles.
