Buyer’s Guide: Mid Range & Mid Bass

Another intergral part of your car stereo system is your front stage.  After market speakers provide more clarity and power than stock. A quality car stereo system will have clarity in all ranges not just bass.

Depending on your ohm load and other factors such as space there are a variety of mid speakers including shallow mount, woofers and multiple ohm options such as 8ohm or 4ohm.  Different speakers are designed to play a specific bandwidth of frequencies.  Thus the main difference between a mid range speaker versus a mid bass speaker will be the frenquency range they are designed to play.  This means some builds may include horns, tweeters, mid range, mid bass and subwoofers for optimal sound quality.

For best results, add an amplifier such as 4 channel to your front stage of your car audio system, for highs and mids.  Just like subwoofers,  the output of your amp should not be too much or too little to drive your speakers.  There are also componant sets that include a built in crossovers for tuning.
