New Sound & Entertainment Systems – Updating Your Car Interior

Older cars tend to not be as high tech as some cars to date, limiting you to radios, CD players or even cassette tapes. Now as some people take pride in their entertainment systems, upgrades are the solution and there are various systems available to best suit you and your vehicle.

As we know there’s a world of car sound equipment enabling motorists to practically weaponise their sound systems with all manner of ridiculous sub woofers and speaker sets, in our article we’re going to look at something a little different and a little more practical.

Upgrading your speakers
With JBL, they provide incredible, well designed speakers to significantly upgrade your system, with high sound quality and no distortion. We’ve hand picked their GX600C, 2-way component set with separate soft dome tweeter and filter. Their edge driven soft dome tweeter delivers a smooth, high frequency response allowing you to experience the best sounds from vocals and instruments. The GX speakers are able to pull more power from the amplifier for a more clearer sound. Designed to fit the majority of factory specifications and for enhanced audio that you take pride in, take a look and see if you can envision them in your vehicle.

The Aunt CS Comp 8 speakers deliver a much more sophisticated sound that benefits any musical genre. The speakers are styled within jet black walls that will fit into any vehicle effectively and give a smooth sound. Although mounting hardware and cables are provided for installation, this results in no complications and a great fit.
An inexpensive choice for a new and improved sound
The popular car stereo with built in USB

If you’re looking to upgrade your current sound system on a small budget, you are able to install a new radio/Bluetooth/mp3 player in your car without having to lose your mind with electricals and the whole wiring system that comes along with it. 3 in 1 sound systems are the most common and useful for money when updating your system, with a USB port allowing you to listen to music from your mobile device, the ability to listen to the radio and the option to play CD’s.

If you’re looking to use a mobile device or tablet, a neat little trick you can do is buy a mount that can be displayed over your original radio or CD player so it sits at a place where you can reach it easily, rather than having to mount it on your dashboard or lodge it in between heaters. Either way, with a brand new stereo system, you can enjoy an improved audio experience. For an inexpensive car stereo like this, you can find a few for under £50 at Halfords, take a peek! However, if you are a little unfortunate and cause damage with the installation, Auto Interior Medic can help with specialists in Dashboard Repairs.
