The three most important parts of any sound system are:
1. Speakers 2. Speakers 3. SPEAKERS!
There are four categories of speakers: Tweeters, Mid-Range, Mid-Bass and Subwoofers. Each of these speakers are designed to reproduce specific frequencies. Every system design may call for any combination of these speakers. Component speakers (separates) will distribute the high and low frequencies to each speaker to give better sound dispersion and better realism. Subwoofers are speakers that are all too often associated with LOUD "BOOM" music; however, they are an integral part of every quality sound system. The objective is to create a full spectrum of sound across the entire audible spectrum. Speakers are rated in wattage, as many know, but there is more to it than that. Matching your speakers to the correct amplifier is essential to great sound. We hope that you find your way to visit us at Soundcrafters and get the benefit of our expertise.
This is the one component that most consumers think is the most important item of the system. WRONG! Certainly, your system is at its best by using an aftermarket source unit. Aftermarket source units are way better than factory for many reasons; the first of which is that they have pre-amplified outputs. If your system desire calls for power amplifiers to be installed, the pre-amp level outputs of a receiver provide for a much cleaner and more crisp sound when powering an amplifier. Factory units do not have pre-amp outputs.
Convenience features such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto, make the functionality of our source units limitless with Smart Phone integration. Send and receive text messages by speaking your commands Hands Free and listen to the responses read back to you.
Amplifiers do just that... they amplify the signal coming from source unit and make it louder and more dynamic. Your choice of amplifier is best made by a Pro. Don't get confused in the array of specifications on equipment or trust the internet to steer you in the right direction. All too often we see customers buy too much power for their needs. Amplifiers and speakers should be carefully matched by wattage and speaker sensitivity specifications.
A DSP unit, whether stand alone or built into an amplifier, is the ideal component to create the ultimate in sound quality. A Digital Sound Processor allows us to adjust time alignment so that every sound wave that reaches the listener simultaneously even though each speaker is a different distance from your ears. Phase correction ensures the optimum definition so that your speaker's sound waves do not fight each other as they "pressurize" your car's interior.
