Follow these basic tips to give your audio system the boost it needs.

What the Deck?

You must have a quality head unit capable of supporting your speakers, subwoofer and amp. The deck is what ties everything together. Without it you have nothing more than some wires and a box.  Purchase a deck that has CD, AUX, USB, MP3 and Bluetooth capabilities for the best listening experience.

High-Performance Speakers

There are audio shops that offer high-powered speakers for your car stereo in Ottawa.

The Right Subwoofer

Different subwoofers will produce different types of bass. When purchasing a subwoofer you have to know which kind of bass you want. There are a variety of subs that offer different listening experiences. Ask an expert which sub is right for you.

Power Up

Your amp is what powers your whole sound system. You want to make sure that your amp is powerful enough to support your sound system; otherwise your system won’t run at full capacity. Purchase a capacitor for your system; it acts as mediator between your amp and your car battery. This way you’re not constantly draining power from your battery.

Strong Box

A well-built box with low quality subs will sounds clearer and louder than a poorly built box with top of the line subs. Having the right box for your subwoofer makes all the difference in the world. Make sure you purchase a well-built, solid box to ensure your subwoofer produces at its full potential.
