A Simple Plan: Equipment

A Guide to Choosing Car Receivers When thinking about getting a car stereo, it is best to start with the deck or the head unit. Since it is this part where you will directly interact with from behind the wheel, it is important for cars today. This is what is called the receiver of the head unit. Choosing a receiver also involves look at plug-in sources, features, and the expandability of the rest of your car audio. After the audio is received from an audio source it then gets to the preamp. This is where all sound adjustments are made. This preamp sections includes controls which range from simple volume, balance, fader, source selection and tone adjustments, to sophisticated crossovers, equalizer and time corrections. The next place where it goes is the amplifier. In this sections small audio signal (low voltage) coming from the preamp section is boosted into a large audio signal (high voltage) and then sent out to the speakers.

Below we will discuss what you should look for when choosing a new receiver because it plays a critical component to the whole audio experience.
Learning The “Secrets” of Equipment
The audio sources are the most often used component which is the most important item to look for. There are many complex functions that today’s car stereo can perform compared to the older versions but one common reason why it is good to get a new stereo is so that you can expand your system’s music playback and other capabilities. Aftermarket stereo offer advanced capabilities from MPs/WMA/AAC playback, iPod or Android support, Satellite Radio, HD Radio reception, DVD playback, Bluetooth connectivity, GPS navigation, or Pandora support. This delivers sound that is cleaner, richer, and more detailed. There are other advanced features found in new stereos which give you another reason for choosing a receiver. This includes full-color animated displays, customizable color schemes, touchscreen monitors, and precision sound control like digital time correction. This is that which compensate for the uneven distances between left and right ear speakers and listeners’ ears which is the processing circuit found in some receivers. It delays signal from the closest speaker, so that all the sound arrives at your off-center listening position at the same time to make one get a more accurate, lifelike stereo image. There is another advanced feature which is the parametric equalization which allows you to adjust the volume level of a frequency or range of frequencies within an audio signal. Another consideration when choosing a receiver is its auxiliary inputs or its expandability. This includes USB connections, and audio/video outputs that will allow you to expand your system by connecting portable music players, rear seat screens, external amplifiers, and powered subwoofers. You should also consider putting security features in your car stereo like detachable face plates and security codes so that they are protected from thieves.
