A more economical way to upgrade your sound system without changing the factory receiver or speakers is to get a compact 4-channel amp to boost the power for your front and rear speakers. The Alpine KTP-445U Power Pack and the Clarion XC1410 4-channel amp are two examples of amplifiers that are small enough that they can be installed behind many dashboards and powerful enough to dramatically increase the quality and clarity of your sound. Both of these amps, as well as many others available at Crutchfield, feature inputs that can handle the high-level signal from the vehicle's factory speaker wiring. Look for an amplifier with "speaker-level inputs" as one of its features if you want to add it to a factory system.
You may want to consider a 5-channel amplifier that can power your entire system from one convenient and compact package. Some manufacturers offer 6- and 8-channel amps. These were designed to run 3- and 4-way active systems, with amplifier channels dedicated to one driver each, like a tweeter or a midrange speaker, and a couple channels bridged together to run a sub.
Figuring out what you need. The "ideal" car audio system is not necessarily the loudest one, or the most expensive one. It's the one that best meets your needs. So, the first step is to figure out what your needs are. Start off by asking yourself: what is the one thing you want your new car stereo to do for you? If you don't come up with an answer right away, then start by taking a look at your current system.
Worth a look. When you're shopping for a car stereo, consider the benefits of getting a touchscreen, navigation receiver. And if you don't need built-in navigation, DVD receivers and digital media receivers are less-expensive options. Regardless of which you choose, the elegance of touchscreen control makes them easy and fun to use.
