Sweet Components vs. all-in-one L istening to music on crummy factory speakers can bring out the Krampus in the best of us. Good thing that stepping up to aftermarket speakers can be one of the simplest improve- ments you can make to your car's audio system. If someone on your list is hoping for new car speakers this year, or if you're just in the mood to treat yourself, here are some basics. The first big decision you'll make when shopping for car speakers is whether to go with a component speaker system or speakers with the woofer and tweeter mounted together. One style can give you the very best sound possible in your vehicle, while the other improves your audio dramatically while being a bit less complicated to install. Which speaker set is right for you? In a 2-way speaker, the tweeter, which handles the sparkling details of the high frequencies, and the woofer cone, which handles the lower foundational frequencies, are together in one basket. This space-efficient structure can make adding a pair to your doors go quickly, and we've got your back - for most vehicles, we include free installation instructions, wiring harnesses, and mounting brackets. And depending on your vehicle, you might even be able to step up to 3-way (pictured to the right), 4-way, or 5-way speakers which add extra drivers to target certain frequency ranges for a more nuanced sound. You'll be singing along in no time. The all-in-one sound solution Check out our full selection of car speakers at crutchReld.com/carspeakers Use all your factory locations!
