There's nothing more enjoyable than driving around in your car with the windows down, sharing your music with the world. However, your experience can be greatly dampened by a low-quality audio system that will not punctuate the bass to your liking or will sound fuzzy when you try to play music too loud. There are three great extras that you can put in almost any car to improve the sound quality of the stereo system.

1. Component Speakers

When you get a new car, unless you've specifically had the audio system modified before you receive it, the car will likely have coaxial speakers installed. Coaxial speakers are speakers that have a woofer, which broadcasts lower sounds, and a tweeter, that broadcasts higher sounds, combined. This means that all of the parts of the music will be coming from one location and will not sound as good as a result. If you're serious about improving the audio quality of your vehicle, then you should install component speakers, which have the tweeter and the woofer separated. 

When the tweeter and the woofer communicate with each other, they will use a crossover network to direct sound to the rightmost speaker, giving the driver more distance from the speaker so that the music sounds more put together. It's essentially a surround sound system for your car.

2. Subwoofer

You're also going to need a subwoofer in order to increase the range of bass sounds that your car's stereo system is able to produce. Subwoofers are able to go deeper than the woofers and are responsible for the feeling of your heart pounding when the bass is dropped at a bar or a club. If you want everyone to know that you're all about that bass, you're going to need to pay to get a subwoofer installed.

3. Bluetooth

A few years ago, an MP3 player would have made this list, but now most people browse music using online services. As a result, you're going to need Bluetooth in order to make sure that your phone is able to connect with your vehicle's speaker system and that you can control the phone with your voice. This will allow you to browse popular music services without taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road. 

For more information about what you can install in your car in order to get the ultimate music listening experience, talk to a car audio technician at a business like Sun Valley Stereo.
