Have you ever noticed that when you get into your vehicle and turn on the stereo system, it doesn’t sound like your favorite concert? We hear that a lot at Bay Area Audio Visions. When someone comes to see us, we like to go sit in their vehicle with them and listen to their stock stereo system. Probably the most common comment we get is “This vehicle needs more bass.”
Three Things For Adding Bass
The good news is that we are here to help. Many people have it in their heads that the only way to add bass to a vehicle is by changing out the stereo system in the dash. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Let us explain. Adding bass to a vehicle consists of three things. First, you need a subwoofer. Second, you need some type of enclosure or “box” for the subwoofer. Last, you need an amplifier to power the subwoofer.
Integrating With Your Factory Radio
In modern vehicles, the stereo system in your dash is often integrated with many other items in the vehicle, not to mention that it looks great since it blends in so well with the cosmetics of the interior. While it is true that your stock stereo system does not have a subwoofer output like a replacement stereo would, our team has a selection of interfaces specifically designed to integrate a subwoofer amplifier with your existing stereo system.
This is not a one-box-fits-all type of interface. Different vehicles with different levels of factory audio systems require different interfaces for the best results. We have a large selection of diagnostic equipment that allows us to test your system so we know what is going to work best in your vehicle.
Big Box Not Needed For Big Bass
In years past, adding a subwoofer to your vehicle meant adding a large enclosure in your cargo area that took up most of your available space. Well, times have changed for the better. Modern subwoofers work in enclosures as much as four times smaller than in the past, yet have better sound quality and output. This allows us to design and build enclosures for you that can tuck into unused areas of your vehicle, keeping your cargo space intact.
