Speaker systems for cars typically come in two kinds. Coaxial speakers use a single unit to produce every frequency, while component systems split the work between two drivers. They are connected by a crossover, which takes the audio being played, separates the signal into higher and lower frequencies, and sends them to the appropriate driver. This results in higher tonal clarity and better staging, giving the riders an excellent audio experience. Below is a short guide to such speaker systems.
Securely mounted in modern cars
The tweeters in component speaker systems should be easy to mount. They should have a sufficient mounting depth to ensure they stay in place if mounted flush with the dashboard. They come with mounting accessories for installing them on the surface, too. The mid-bass speakers typically go in the lower front section of car doors and come with grills for protection and style.
Size against stock holes
Not all component speakers fit every make of car, unfortunately. The doors may come with stock apertures precut for installing woofers, but these tend to be 5.25" in diameter. Some cars--and indeed several models of speakers!--come in larger diameters such as 6.5" and 6"×9". Checking the specifications of one's vehicle first is always a good idea, as alterations may be difficult and costly.
For many years of good tunes
As vehicles don't always have their windows turned up, it becomes necessary to invest in audio equipment that adeptly handles both frequent use and environmental effects like heat and moisture. An injection-molded polypropylene speaker cone and butyl rubber coverings handle wear and tear while remaining flexible enough to provide great sound. Aluminum voice coils work well with high temperatures, too. Look for silk-domed tweeters with neodymium magnets for the best sound definition.
