One of the best things that can be done to get better sound from any stereo system, whether factory of aftermarket, is upgrade the speakers. The car is far from the perfect environment for a good stereo system. Factory speakers are lacking in the technology that good quality aftermarket speakers have, and the speaker location is normally the last thing on an engineer’s mind. In order to get higher performance and better clarity, good quality aftermarket speakers (when installed properly) are the only way to go. A good aftermarket speaker will be louder and clearer than the stock ones, even with your factory radio. Speaker technology has come a long way and good quality speakers do not have to cost an arm and a leg. As with anything car audio related, the installation is what matters the most. The stronger the mounting surface for the speaker, the better it’s going to sound. Special materials can be used in order to get the most out of your speaker upgrade with less vibrations and road noise to get you more music.
