But if you have a solid playlist lined up, the entire mood of the drive can change. You’re probably familiar with the feeling the right song at the right time through your stereo brings, but you might not be as familiar with how much better that feeling can be with the right sound system to make that song, and all the others on your playlists, sound their absolute best. As your auto body shop, we see a lot of cars and their sound systems. If you think the sound in your vehicle could be amped up, or elevated, here are our tips on how to get the best sound quality possible.

Don’t Stick With What You’re Given

We’re sure this doesn’t come as a surprise, but it’s rare that the sound system that comes standard within your vehicle offers the best sound quality possible. But here’s the bright side of that – with today’s after-market options, you aren’t stuck with the standard equipment. If sound quality is important to you as a driver, you have plenty of options.

Pad Your Car

While you need to be able to hear some things on the road, a lot of vehicles are….noisy. Road noise makes it difficult to hear the sound of your music accurately and can affect the harshness and quality of the sound. If you use a sound-deadening product like Dynamat or Hushmat for example, you can reduce vibration and road noise. By doing this, you don’t have to turn your music up as loud when you’re driving, which allows your amps to work a little less and lets you hear your music more clearly.

Get Your Subwoofer On

One of the most common after-market add-ons for an in-vehicle sound system is a subwoofer – and for good reason. It’s not unusual for a driver to not even notice that they’re missing the bottom octave of their music until they hear the same song with subwoofer installed. As an added bonus, a subwoofer can take a load off your full-range speakers, making your existing sound system last longer, too.

Invest in Quality

This should go without saying, but if you’re going to amp up the sound system in your vehicle, do so with quality in mind. If you weren’t happy with the quality of sound your pre-existing system gave you, taking the cheap route certainly won’t make it any better. Invest in high-quality equipment and you’ll get high-quality sound.

From amps to subwoofer boxes to cables and beyond, there are countless customizations you can make to your vehicle’s sound system in order to elevate it and meet the needs of your daily life and sound preferences. Just make sure you consult with an expert and have any after-market systems or components installed by a professional, too. There are too many moving parts in a vehicle (no pun intended) to be trying your hand at wiring things yourself.
