Let's talk about your car speakers. It's just a fact of life that car manufacturers only really include speakers because they can't sell a car without them. With a few exceptions, factory speakers are serviceable for listening to the radio or playing music, and not much better. For anyone who loves music as much as they love driving, this is an issue.
When you're accustomed to the quality of your home speakers, hearing the same songs through factory car speakers can be jarring. For this reason alone, it's worth considering upgrading to brand new speakers.
Here are a few of the benefits:
1) Lasting Quality
Factory speakers tend to be made of inexpensive materials. At a glance, this makes sense: the manufacturers are keen to keep costs down and speakers have no direct bearing on a car's performance, so they're easy to skimp on.
However, a car is a micro-climate in itself, and cheap materials don't cope well with frequent changes in temperature with air conditioning, humidity etc. Soon enough, the materials used for factory speakers will start to wear down and deteriorate, further affecting the quality of the sound produced.
Brand speakers are designed to be far more robust in these conditions and hold their level of quality over time. This means that not only will the sound quality instantly improve if you decide to upgrade, but it will also pay increasing dividends over time.
2) The Romance
Let's be fully honest: hands-down the best reason to get some good quality speakers is so that you can fly down the motorway with your favourite tunes blasting out. Whether you're doing a one-man rendition of the Bohemian Rhapsody scene from Wayne's World, screaming along with Tina Turner, or bouncing to Uptown Funk, being able to crank up the volume and fully appreciate a good road song is pure, undiluted joy.
Having a lengthy, well-chosen road playlist is a great way to capitalise on the benefits of quality car speakers. To really make the most of this, making sure your car has good Bluetooth capability is essential. It's well worth shopping around and checking out Bluetooth handsfree car kit reviews to find the best system for you, enabling you to pick exactly the right track for your mood wherever you're headed.
3) Quiet in the Back
If you have children - especially small children - then you know the dread that comes when a long car journey is approaching. The arguments, the tantrums, the are-we-there-yet questions over and over again, etc. All of this is just a yard behind you, but there's nothing you can do about it because you're driving.
Distraction is the key to keeping kids quiet. Audio books are great because they're so hard to avoid. A good story draws people in, and a good audio book will do just that; it's hard not to become invested in the worlds of Harry Potter or Percy Jackson.
The problem? The kids can't hear it over their squabbling because the tiny speakers in the back doors aren't up to the task. Good-quality speakers will ensure that the sound reaches all over the car, and provides a much more pleasant listening experience. And it's far nicer for you than listening to three different phones blaring out segments of three different Facebook videos at random.
You won't fully realise it until your factory speakers are replaced, but upgrading to quality speakers is a game changer. When the love of driving and the love of music are equally strong, there's really only one option. Shop around for quality speakers that suit your budget and needs, and you'll find your driving experience growing more rewarding day by day.
