Replacing the speakers can offer you a clearer sound as well as a tighter bass. You can find a variety of quality speakers for sale in South Africa. Another way to get the best out of your sound is to decrease the compression of your audio files.

You could install the amplifier at the rear end of the subwoofer box. Another great spot is underneath the passenger seat. Smaller amps may fit behind the dashboard. If the amplifier is in a small space it is crucial to install a fan which will help to ventilate the equipment. A computer fan is suitable for this application. Once you have decided on the right spot, install the amplifier and connect up the wires. Don’t forget to test it out to make sure that the audio system is working.

If you decide to build your own sub box make sure that it doesn’t have any air leaks. Another option is to buy a sub box. In this case you will need to match your sub to a suitable box. Whether you are buying or building a box make sure that the interior volume is correct.

    I’ll have to try decompressing my audio files for sure. My sound system is pretty solid, but I have noticed the quality of some songs are less than others. These are good tips though, if I ever need to replace my sound system I’ll have to refer to these. Thanks for sharing!
