7 Tips for the First-Time Buyer | Car Audio


Hi my name is Movin On, and I’ve been working
in the field of car audio and mobile electronics for 8 over years. I’ve installed everything from navigation
systems to full car stereo systems, remote starters, alarms, and beyond. To learn more, visit our web site at www.movinon.com. When you’re getting a car stereo for the first
time, you wanna ask yourself, “”What are you looking to get out of this stereo? Are you looking to play a form of media that
you couldn’t play before? Like an iPod? Are you looking for better sound? Are your looking for more bass?”” A lot of times it’s easier to just replace
your head unit, which is the main part that you put the CD in and plug iPods into, but
often times it’s not really possible. You’re gonna want to go to a local car stereo
shop and consult with a professional. You need somebody who has experience to look
at your car, determine what can be changed, how it can be changed and how it’s gonna be
done properly. If you plan on doing it yourself, you’re gonna
wanna do proper research and maybe even go to a car stereo shop to ask what type of parts
you’re gonna need. For instance, if you wanna play your iPod,
there are interfaces we could add to make that play; if you want more bass, we can add
a sub-woofer and an amplifier and if you want better sound, we may be able to replace your
speakers or add an amplifier or a sound processor without replacing the head unit at all. When you’re looking to change a stereo, you
may want to ask yourself, what you’re looking to gain by that. Is it better sound? Is it better features? You wanna be able to play your ipod? These are all things that could potentially
cut your costs in half. You may not need to change every single component
of your car stereo, just to give it a little bit more bass. Changing your speakers isn’t always the answer. Sometimes changing the head unit’s a better
idea. Sometimes adding an amplifier with a little
bit of bass’ll give you that extra bit of impact that you need. A lot of people will jump straight to the
“Big Box Store” because they know that the “Big Box Store” has a big selection and that
they have lots of salespeople and help that is readily available; but I tend to recommend
the local car stereo shop because, typically, you’re gonna have more dedicated professionals
with a lot more experience. You’re gonna get better work done to your
car, you’re gonna get better advice, and a lot of times, you’re gonna have higher-end
brands to choose from.
