4 Tips to Improve Your Sound
- Sound dampening material is one of the most overlooked additions of any sound system. It is used to eliminate excessive road noise, reduce rattles within the interior and it helps maintain a proper acoustic environment for your speakers.
- Bass blockers remove frequencies from music that are not typically playable by smaller speaker drivers. They are used to prevent distortion in tweeters while trying to reproduce low frequency music notes.
- Speaker baffles will protect your speaker from moisture and dirt. Nothing is worse than purchasing a nice set of speakers, only to find they have rotted out over a rainy winter.
- Speaker wire that is properly sized is important for delivering a clean signal to your speakers with little electrical resistance. Whenever you increase the amount of power you are delivering to your factory speakers, you will need to upgrade the thickness of your speaker wire.
