Do you travel a lot? If you spend a lot of time in your car, you should consider investing in a new receiver with multiple inputs and a wide list of features. USB and aux jacks are essential for iPods and other devices, and Bluetooth is a great thing to have for hands-free calling and music streaming. Many receivers are SiriusXM-ready, so all you need is a subscription to start enjoying the amazing variety of commercial-free music, live sports, and talk. Best of all, you get coast-to-coast coverage so you won't ever lose a station again.
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.
Speaker materials. A speaker's material design will determine its durability and sound quality. Woofer materials, to effectively produce the low notes in your music, the woofer of a full-range or component speaker should be made of material that is stiff, yet lightweight. Manufacturers make most car speaker woofer cones out of synthetic films like polypropylene, which serve well. Polypropylene mixed with other materials, like mica, is often stiffer, yielding more accurate bass response. Woven fabrics, or synthetics coated with metals like aluminum or titanium, are also lightweight, strong, and provide excellent response. All of these materials stand up well to heat, cold, and moisture.
Improving clarity with tweeters. Check out the way you've set the tone controls on your factory stereo. If you see that the treble control is all the way up, consider buying a set of tweeters, small high-frequency speakers that you can install in your doors or dash. You can wire them together with your door or dash speakers, and you'll be amazed at how they'll bring your system to life. Even if you already have factory tweeters, installing a set of high-quality tweeters in their place can improve the clarity of your system dramatically.
