User Guide To Car Audio

It's a fact that a lot of people love cars as much as they love music. Car and music enthusiasts would seek the assistance of car dealers and auto repair shops for particular car audio systems that would enhance the experience of listening to music while driving along the Australia's roads.

The first car audio came in the 1930s with the introduction of the Motorola model 5T71 and could be installed in the most popular automobiles of the time. Eventually, all other car manufacturers followed the success of the car audio system and fitted radios into their cars.
The common components and terms that are associated with the car audio system include:

  • Stock unit. The original equipment that the vehicles manufacturer installed.
  • Head unit. The primary control device.
  • Speakers
  • Amplifiers. These are dedicated electronic amplifier that is separated from the other components of the system.
  • Subwoofers. A specific type of loudspeaker for low frequency reduction.
  • Capacitors. These are used to store energy for the amplifiers.
  • Damping. These are used to damp excess vibration of the panels in the car.

Car audio systems do not cheap especially newer models with better sound systems and the installation of these car accessories is usually done by motor mechanics, but a skilled car owner may be able to accomplish this without a glitch.
Since not all vehicles are locally made, there are dealers that import and wholesale auto accessories and components such as car audio systems to service the local automotive industry. Having said, asking about the guarantee before proceeding with the service would be an advantage as most mobile business services offer a guarantee for new parts installed including labour. These services, parts and accessories are available from stores that specialize in automobiles and also from the retailer of the vehicles, which can be requested upon purchase. These services are usually done by motor mechanics and electricians.
The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association is the peak body that is concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing of all vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment and services.

Tips when buying car audio systems

  • Know all the details of the car audio system that you need for you vehicle and compare them to each other in order to realize their suitability for you. Some car audio systems might not be compatible with your car and might not produce the desired sound.
  • Choose the right car accessories store. Reputable and trusted dealers often have good track records and are recognized by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association.
  • Ask for help from family and colleagues for any recommendations that they may give.
  • Check car audio system for any damage before purchasing them and do not be afraid to ask questions every time.
  • Car accessory stores should always have their policies posted and should be able to address all your concerns and queries to your satisfaction. If they are unable to explain a particular process, they may not be the most qualified people to take care of your car.
