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.

An amplifier: An amplifier is an electronic device that increases the voltage, current, or power of a signal. Amplifiers are used in wireless communications and broadcasting, and in audio equipment of all kinds. They can be categorized as either weak-signal amplifiers or power amplifiers.
Weak-signal amplifiers are used primarily in wireless receivers. They are also employed in acoustic pickups, audio tape players, and compact disc players. A weak-signal amplifier is designed to deal with exceedingly small input signals, in some cases measuring only a few nanovolts (units of 10-9 volt). Such amplifiers must generate minimal internal noise while increasing the signal voltage by a large factor. The most effective device for this application is the field-effect transistor. The specification that denotes the effectiveness of a weak-signal amplifier is sensitivity, defined as the number of microvolts (units of 10-6 volt) of signal input that produce a certain ratio of signal output to noise output (usually 10 to 1).
Power amplifiers are used in wireless transmitters, broadcast transmitters, and hi-fi audio equipment. The most frequently-used device for power amplification is the bipolar transistor. However, vacuum tubes, once considered obsolete, are becoming increasingly popular, especially among musicians. Many professional musicians believe that the vacuum tube (known as a “valve” in England) provides superior fidelity.
Two important considerations in power amplification are power output and efficiency. Power output is measured in watts or kilowatts. Efficiency is the ratio of signal power output to total power input (wattage demanded of the power supply or battery). This value is always less than 1. It is typically expressed as a percentage. In audio applications, power amplifiers are 30 to 50 percent efficient. In wireless communications and broadcasting transmitters, efficiency ranges from about 50 to 70 percent. In hi-fi audio power amplifiers,distortion is also an important factor. This is a measure of the extent to which the output waveform is a faithful replication of the input waveform. The lower the distortion, in general, the better the fidelity of the output sound.

Get better sound and imaging! In this video I show you the basics to installing component speakers and things you should consider when doing the job.

There are several ways to installing component speakers and location to where the cross overs go. This video is showing the easiest way for this particular vehicle because it already has factory locations for the tweeters.

Building Car Audio False Wall – Subwoofer Box Trunk Build – CarAudioFabrication

September 9, 2016 by  
Filed under How To Fix Your Car

A false wall car audio install will help make the build look much more integrated into the trunk of the vehicle. But the false wall should do much more than hide the subwoofer box. The false wall should also match the OEM look of the vehicle interior. In this Car Audio Fabrication Project Rebuild video I show you how I create the geometry of the false wall that will be used to trim out the car audio install.

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.

Car amplifiers have a lot of switches and dials on the side. And a lot of the time when we see do-it-yourself installations, we see all these dials and knobs turned all the way up. This is not the proper way to tune a car amplifier. The proper way, is to first turn the gain down, turn all of the filters to off. Then, turn up the car stereo ’til it starts distorting, then back it down a little bit. Then, turn on your high pass filter, adjust it, and then go back and repeat the process. This seems to work for me, gives clear sound, makes sure the gain’s at the proper level. If you turn the gain to the wrong level, you can introduce all sorts of noise to your car stereo system. We have people who come in and they step on the gas pedal and there’s a whirring sound out of their engine from the speaker. That usually happens when either the amplifier is not grounded properly or when the gain is just turned up way too high. Now the way you adjust the amplifier is gonna vary depending on what type of amplifier you’re using, what type of speakers you’re using and what type of stereo you’re connecting it to. But generally, if you use that same method, you’re gonna achieve good sound in the end. Depending on your combination of amplifiers and head units, tuning the amplifier is gonna be slightly different. Some stereos you’re gonna have to turn the gain up a lot. Some stereos you’re not gonna have to turn the gain up more. Remember that more gain doesn’t necessarily mean more volume.
