Some people buy a car and just aren’t content. Before they even so much as turn the key in the ignition they are thinking about how to get the best audio performance out of their sound system.
If you are one of these people and you want your car to deliver as high quality a sound as your home entertainment system, you need to pick your sound system wisely. Technology has come a long way from the simple tape deck or car radio. These days you can get a little bit more bang for your buck.
Below are some of the best in car sound systems money can buy, bringing clarity and life to your favourite music on those long drives or even just for your morning commute.
The Mazdaspeed3 contains a very respectable sound system, one that definitely won’t disappoint. Designed by Bose specifically for Mazda’s station wagon, this 10 speaker system gives you a great listening experience. It might not be the very best on the market, but it’s definitely one of the strongest in its price bracket.
For changeable high performance, you can’t beat the Rockford Fosgate Audio System which is available in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. This sound system boasts 9 different speakers and a 10 inch sub-woofer. Capable of crystal clear quality sound without sacrificing high or low end frequencies, this system is a very good, if pricey, option.
The Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 Digital Surround Sound system is a step into a world of luxury. Available in the £60,000 Mercedes Benz, this sound system offers unprecedented sound quality and listener experience. The speakers are placed so as to fully immerse the passengers in the audio experience, offering an incredible spectrum of aural enjoyment.
Running in first place by a long way is the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, designed for the Audi A3. This award winning sound system consists of 14 speakers with built in amplifers, a 12 inch subwoofer and a pair of dashboard mounted acoustic lens speakers. It is a worthwhile investment for anyone who wants to get the very best out of their car entertainment system.
It may seem petty to some to place such an importance on the sound system of a car; however decent quality audio can make all the difference on a long journey. For some people, the audio system of their car is just as important as the aesthetics, the speed, and the built in seat warmers.
To be fair, you will probably be using your sound system more than you will be using your car’s ability to hit 90mph in 5 seconds. If you do intend to invest a significant amount of money in your car’s sound system, make sure your car insurance covers it. The last thing you want is to have some kind of accident or theft, only to find out that your car insurance covers everything except the hi-fi. Whether you love your sound system or not, it is an investment worth protecting.
