Car Stereo Head Units
The head unit of a stereo contains an amplifier and pushes power to your speakers, and sends signal to an amplifier for sub-woofers if you have some subs.
The first question you need to ask yourself when shopping for a car stereo is: Single DIN or Double DIN?
A single DIN car audio head unit takes up a single standard slot of space in your dash.
Before touch screens became mainstream almost all head units were single DIN.
These days with touch screen technology advancing double DIN options are more commonplace, however there are still many great options if a single DIN car stereo is what you are after.
A double DIN is twice the size of a single DIN head unit.
Depending on your vehicle you will either have room for a single or double DIN unit.
Once you determine the size of stereo you need you will need a wiring harness and a dash mount kit.
Installing after market speakers into your vehicle will make a huge difference in the sound improvement.
Most factory speakers have paper cones and distort when combined with an aftermarket head unit or an amp.
To ensure your system sounds good at louder volumes and hits all notes properly premium speakers are a must.
The speakers we sell and install most often are made of a combination of plastic (polypropylene), rubber, carbon fiber and/or metal.
Premium materials lead to a premium sound and here at DH Performance and Sound getting you a system that sounds great matters to us.
Component speakers contain both a woofer and a tweeter within one unit.
This type of speaker saves on size and often on cost, however does not give the same level of clarity as component speakers.
Component speakers are high quality speakers where the woofer and the tweeter are separated.
A device called a cross-over ensure high frequency sounds are sent to the smaller tweeter and mid range tones are sent to the woofer cone.
The sound frequency separation makes for maximum clarity, which is why the most expensive speakers are most often component speaker sets.
Sub-woofers are what deliver the BASS for your sound system.
The space you have available for subs is often a main motivator for the sub-woofers you choose.
If you want your subs and car audio to really thump a good choice is to go with two subs rather than one.
Here is a picture of two 12″ Pioneer sub-woofers.
In addition to the subs you’ll need an amp to power them.
Since subs draw plenty of electricity you will need an amplifier to power them.
There are several different kinds of amps to match your audio needs. The most popular kinds of car audio amps include:
- Monoblock Amplifiers
- Two Channel Amplifiers
- Four Channel Amps
- 5, 6, and 8 Channel Amps
- Mini Amps
What is the difference between these different car audio amps?
Mono Amplifiers send out monophonic signals, for powering a sub-woofer or subs.
Indeed we carry many of the best brands and have a superb selection to serve the Barrie car audio market.
When you buy an amplifier to power you new sub or subwoofers we recommend installing a Bass Knob as well so you can control your bass level independent from the rest of your sound system.
