What Is the Difference Between Component and Coaxial Speakers?

The speakers will be one of the primary choices you need to give consideration to when designing a new car stereo system. Most speakers fall into one of two categories: component and coaxial. Do you know the difference?

  • Coaxial speakers – Sometimes abbreviated as coax, this type of speaker provides a wide range of sounds. As the prefix co- indicates, these speakers usually provide sound within two ranges. For example, you may have a coax speaker that combines a woofer and a tweeter. This is why coaxial speakers are also sometimes referred to as full-range speakers. There are also three-way speakers that throw a midrange speaker into the mix. This type of speaker is also called tri-axial. Obviously, these speakers are easier to install. However, they may not provide all of the function and sound that you are looking for in an upgraded car audio system.
  • Component speakers – Component speakers, rather than trying to be a jack of all trades, cover one part of the spectrum and do it well. These speakers include subwoofers, tweeters, and midrange speakers. The installation process is more complicated, but the configurations you can make are almost limitless. It’s perfect for a true music aficionado.
