For the beginning audiophile, an “amplifier” might sound like what you plug an electric guitar into, and in a sense it is. An amplifier, broadly, is a device that makes an audio or other electronic signal larger and clearer before it reaches its final output device. A car amplifier amplifies the sound signal coming out of your car stereo before it gets to your speakers. The car audio market is projected to hit 13.52 billion dollars by 2028, according to GlobeNewswire. Here are some ways that a car amplifier will improve your driving experience.
Louder Sound, No Distortion
A huge part of getting car amplifiers installed is greater headroom. Headroom is the amount of volume you can pump through your amplifier before the signal begins to break up and distort. With more headroom, you can put more energy into your speakers and get clearer, louder, stronger sounds than before.
Tubes and Solid-State
The conventional wisdom is that only a tube amplifier will work. A modern solid-state amp gives incredible amplification, however, at a bargain price, and doesn’t add the extreme heat of a tube system to your car.
Get the Most Out Of Your Speakers
Remember that to truly get the most out of your speakers, you will need to know how much power your amplifier can safely draw from your alternator. A 65-amp alternator can drive a 540-watt amp, for example. Bigger alternators, like in a truck system or a sports car, can drive appropriately bigger car amplifiers and more powerful stereo systems.
You Love Your Music
A car amplifier is the best way to quickly increase the signal power going to your speakers. With the added power and clarity, you’ll hear new highs and lows that you never heard before in your car stereo system. If you love music, a car amplifier will breathe new life into the sound system of your car.
So Many Options
You’re looking for the best surround sound options you can get. The more speakers you have, the more channels you will need for surround sound. The total power of the amplifier is divided up between the channels, so remember that for a larger number of speakers, your chances of needing a capacitor to condition the power and a battery to store it for your car amplifiers will go up.
If you’re a serious audiophile, you need a car stereo amplifier system, and the higher the power, the stronger your signal will be. Car stereos have come a long way since 2000. Contact us for more information.
