What to consider when buying speakers?

If you want your music to sound its best while driving these great speakers can be a great improvement for your car stereo. They are quite affordable and are a worthy investment towards the great sound. They can be easily installed but don’t hesitate to get help from a professional if you don’t feel like installing them yourself. A ceramic dome-shaped tweeter is required in order to get a great reproduction of higher frequencies.

Look for speakers that come with surround material like rubber or foam so as to avoid vibrations from lower frequencies.  It is vital to look for speakers that are capable to reproduce audio on all the sound spectrum. In most cases, speakers of this size can produce the full range of frequencies well so there is not a need for separate tweeter and subwoofer. Three-way speakers are designed so as to be able to handle bass, mid and highs all from the same speaker. Obviously, the clarity of the sound is vital to look for models that prevent distortion even on higher volumes.

The speakers come with two ratings, the one refers to the peak power and the other to RMS. The peak power rating is the rating that indicates the maximum amount of power the speaker can take in an instant peak that still will not damage the speaker. It is important to check but you are not going to run the speakers at this power, keep it in mind as a safety precaution. The RMS (Root Mean Square) is the rating that indicates the actual power that the speaker can handle continuously, which means that is the maximum power you can actually run the speaker from your amplifier.

Keep in mind that RMS rating might be misleading as it can not be considered accurate unless. The CEA certification guarantees that the value is correct and comparable to other CEA certified speaker systems.

Most speakers of this size can deliver around 40-70 watt RMS power output. Look for speakers that have a low-frequency response for better and round bass. It’s typical for 6×9 speakers to have crossover circuits integrated and their size is ideal for the back deck of the car for an even fuller sound. Pick a speaker from a reputable brand that comes with a long lasting warranty. Most speakers on the market come with one year warranty, but some brands offer up to 3 years warranty which might come in handy.
