Best Car Audio

By September 11, 2011March 10th, 2012No Comments

Best car audio is a popular searched for term. What does the phrase” best car audio” mean? Is there such a thing. If so, what does it sound like?

Good car audio is a difficult feat in and of itself. Take your current listening environment and sit in your chair and imagine all the room boundary surfaces closing in on you. It is like the trash compactor, Princess Leha and Hans Solo found themselves in Star wars. After the room’s walls and ceiling have shrunk within about a foot of your body and chair on all 5 sides, now change the composition of your shrunken room’s surfaces to glass. Yes, glass and you can even imagine the ceiling made of glass. Now, you have the space reserved for car audio. Yea!

We are testing our foam technology on every car interior surface and find that all surfaces need to be addressed if one is to have any acoustical chance of making good car audio. Lets don’t even think of best car audio at this stage. Lets shoot for some type of audio, period. The dash holds promise for windshield reflection “control” and I use that term in the loosest sense of the word. The rear passenger windows and back ledge show promise for more control for the rear speakers. No rear passengers allowed. The roof or ceiling in our “car room” shows us that maybe diffusion could help us with presentation and air after we get the reflections tamed.

It is worth the effort to try to create the best car audio for yourself. Forget about the others. Find the emotional connection to your car audio and definitely step on the gas. Music and motion, just can’t beat it. All other drivers please pull to the right.
