What makes a good component speaker? The answer, of course, is a good set of speakers with the best possible crossover for each individual component. The more speakers you put in your car, the more likely you are to get a good system with excellent sound reproduction and real bass extension. It’s true that many tweeters can handle the upper range of frequencies but not all can produce good bass; and even the best tweeters will falter if they don’t have good isolation on both sides of their speaker cone. In other words, it’s important to have your best component speakers isolated from each other, especially for woofers. Click here
Speakers – How They Work and What They Do
Why is this so important? Well, imagine putting some very large (and expensive) full range speakers into a relatively small vehicle; that should be a recipe for utter and complete failure. The cone is going to react to all the vibrations in the air and send the sound waves out into the room. However, some of these vibrations will be caused by the surround speakers and some by the tweeter. If you have a set of full-range speakers, each speaker, individually, will only reproduce a very small portion of the total sound spectrum. The end result will be sounds that are far too high frequency or just too bass, which will never happen if the speakers are positioned right next to each other.
You’ll need to experiment with positioning if you want to place the best component speakers so that you can get a good stereo sound. Some people will position their stereo system so that they are facing outward while others will set it so that they are facing inward. Still others will use dual systems so that they can place the best of the best enclosure boxes next to each other. Whatever method you choose, make sure that it is something that will work well within your budget.
