Also referred to as the radio, this controls many of the functions of the audio system. While it is an important piece of equipment, it isn’t the primary contributor to the sound of the system. The head unit provides the ability to play back all sorts of media types and can provide options to connect with your phone or another portable media player. If you listen to music stored on or streamed to a portable device but your factory radio doesn’t provide an opportunity to conveniently connect that device to the system in your car, you may want to consider a new head unit. At 360 Audio we are proud to work with premium suppliers Clarion, Alpine, Kenwood and Sony for your head unit requirements.
Ultimately, these are what you hear when you listen to your system. Good speakers should be able to handle enough power to play at the level you require without distortion. The speakers in the front of the car are the most important because those are mostly what you hear. The rear speakers provide sound for rear-seat passengers and help to create a more realistic experience for front-seat passengers.
This is a speaker designed to produce the lowest notes in the recording. A great sounding subwoofer adds interest and the visceral impact you hear at a concert, or in a club. A subwoofer usually needs to be enclosed in a box of some kind. Your expert can custom-build an enclosure that matches your car and leaves plenty of room for cargo. At 360 Audio we are proud to work with premium suppliers FOCAL and Rockford Fosgate for your subwoofer requirements.
Amplifiers are designed to provide the power necessary for your system to play more loudly than a system that’s powered by the small amplifier in the radio. Having this additional power prevents distortion. At 360 Audio we are proud to work with premium suppliers FOCAL, Mosconiand Rockford Fosgate for your amplifier requirements.
A signal processor can be the most beneficial of all audio upgrades because it compensates for the acoustic properties of your car’s interior. Signal processors often include powerful equalizers, crossovers and other features that can make your car sound like a much more expensive home audio system. If you’re thinking about keeping the factory radio a signal processor may be necessary to connect the aftermarket gear to the radio and to provide the tuning tools necessary for a high-performance system.
