You’re on a budget. So? That doesn’t mean you have to give up on getting your tunes loud and sharp. Music’s gotta be right! It shows you haven’t given up on life. Here are a few tips for better stereo performance in your car.
Fiddle With The Equalizer
Find ‘Settings > Music > EQ’ on your phone and adjust the audio till you have it just the way you like it.
Amp Up For Sharpness
Amps aren’t just about volume and bass. They’re also about sharpness and detail. Take note, especially if you have jazz and classical in your mix.
Cheap Car, Cheap Speakers
When your car’s manufacturer selected the contractor for the speakers, all it cared about was ‘How Cheap?’ and ‘Can They Hear the Weather?’ If you care about music – you’ll be getting your own speakers.
They’re cheap and they make sense. Half the reason you can’t hear your music is all the incidental road noise. So block that out!
Give Up On Cheap Audio
MP3 has its uses, but sooner or later it’s time to admit that it just doesn’t carry enough information to produce good audio.
Switch To Thumb Drive
Maybe it’s time to give up on the phone completely. Downloading your music to a thumb drive lets you use the car’s own audio.
About That Classic Car
A 1965 Mustang will always be a great car. Its 1965 car radio, however, just sucks. Get a new one.
You can install a powered sub-woofer under your seat for less than $100. Pump up the volume like it was the 70s!
See this thing attached to a car radio? It renders it completely Bluetooth-compatible for serious audio enhancement.
The Secret Of Bass
Bass junkie? Can’t get enough bottom? Stop turning up the bass, which just distorts past a certain point. Instead, turn down the mid-tones, turn down the treble then turn up the volume.
