How to Choose a Car Audio Amplifier

Car audio amplifiers are the power that runs your speakers and subwoofers. If you don’t pick the right one, you will spend too much, and your car stereo could sound terrible. So how do you know you’re purchasing the right car audio amplifier for your car? Read on to find out.

How to Choose The Right Car Audio Amplifier

Choosing the best car audio amplifier for your vehicle’s stereo system is actually one of the biggest decisions you will make in the course of your life. All of your car sound will be traveling through your audio amplifier so you will want to ensure that you have purchased a high-quality amp that can produce enough power for all your speakers and make them play as loud as you want them to. It’s imperative to know that your car’s amplifier takes signals from your car’s head unit and makes them loud enough to power your speakers. So, if you’re looking to buy a car audio amplifier, the following are some of the things to consider.

The Right Number of Channels

When purchasing a car audio amplifier, it’s important to check how many channels it has as car audio amplifiers come with varying channels. The number of speakers you have in your car will determine how many channels you’ll need in an amplifier. As a rule of thumb, one channel is usually needed for each speaker you have, including the one in your car’s sound system subwoofer. However, if the amplifier has an even number of channels, it’s able to power an even number of speakers even the number of speakers is more than the number of the amplifier’s channels.

So as long as your car’s audio amplifier gives enough power for each of your speakers, you are good to go.

Too Much Power for Your Speakers

Regardless of the kind of speakers you’re working with, the amplifier you’ll choose must provide sufficient power to all speakers in your car audio system. Ideally, an amplifier must have the capability to provide about 75 – 150 percent of the total RMS value of all the speakers in your car audio system. So, because of this, it’s often said that it’s better to exceed the needed power for the speakers than to have too little. In fact, too little power to the speakers could blow up or fry them in a matter of minutes.

Moreover, it’s also recommended to select the speakers for your car’s audio unit and then use them as a benchmark for picking an amplifier. We recommend Caraudiologic’s research on 4 channel amps to make the right decisions on your car audio system.

Compatibility with Your Head Unit

In a car’s audio system, the head unit, also known as the stereo, multimedia player, or radio, connects to the amplifier which then connects to the speakers in your system. A factory head unit does not usually come with preamp outputs so means the amplifier you choose should have speaker level inputs. Conversely, a head unit with a preamp output requires an amplifier with a line level input. So, to avoid buying incompatible amplifiers, you must first find out whether your car’s head unit has a preamp output or not.

Need for an Extra Car Battery

If your car’s sound system demands at least 600 watts of the total RMS power, then your car’s starting battery should be upgraded if you don’t want to buy an additional battery. A sound system, at this level, can be very demanding in terms of power requirements. If you find that the bass is dropping and your car’s headlights are becoming dim, then you surely need an additional battery to keep up with your car’s energy demands.

Make Sure That The Amplifier is Covered by Manufacturer’s Warranty

In most cases, manufacturers only honor a warranty if the item was bought from an authorized dealer, and this is the case when it comes to car audio amplifiers. So, before choosing a certain amp, it’s good to verify the credentials of the seller. Buying a car audio amplifier from any seller may lack the guarantee that the amplifier is original or has the quality intended by its manufacturer. To check this, you can easily find all the authorized dealers online on the manufacturer’s website.

If you follow the above tips, you’ll be able to choose the right amplifier for your car sound system.

How to Get Your Car Track Ready

What kinds of things should you actually look at if you want your car to have a successful day at the track? There are ways to go about optimizing your car for the track, and it need not cost an arm and a leg. With every round of revisions and improvements, your car will be ready to go whenever you want to test it out at the track.

 

  1. Essential preparation tips: Typically, cars have plenty of performance right out of the box. However, to avoid an embarrassing melting incident, or completely falling apart since it will spend a few hours at its peak performance levels, there are a few things you should take care of. To start off with, a thorough spa day should be performed, if you will. Servicing the differential, the gearbox, the cooling system, brakes, and replacing fluids with ones more suited to the track life will help you reach top performance at the track and know of anything that might be wrong on the car before pushing it too hard. Inspect everything. New or old, components and fittings can be worn or loose. Vibration and time are the enemies of every car, at the track or not. Cars endure a lot of wear and tear without accounting for fun track days.
  2. Check your tires: Track days, although much fun, can cause a lot of wear on tires. Both tire treads and pressure should be optimized to your preferences, and you should have enough tread to get the car home. Something such as an alignment could be used to adjust the camber of the tires, and help you turn your best at the track.
  3. Suspension alterations: Another way to adjust the turn is to adjust your toe angle. We don’t mean the angle on your foot. We are talking about the toe angle of the front suspension, which can be altered to your preferences for the car’s reaction to the steering input. Many cars will be stock with slower reactions, for safety purposes when driving daily. An adjustment of the front suspension, while it can make your turn reaction much tighter, can also make for much twitchier normal driving.
  4. Upgrades without breaking the bank: Odds are, if you’re at the track, you’re probably there as a hobby. Most readers of this are not professional racers. For modest investments of about 500 to 1000 pounds, many upgrades can add to your track day experience. New tires,reducing the weight of the car via lighter frame pieces or internal components like a battery, or even decorative additions are fun ways to up your track day experience. Whatever modification you make, internal or external, it is best to do a test run to help you fine tune the car to your preferences, if you’ll be the one in the car on the track.
  5. Increasing your cool factor: Literally, the cooling factor of the car is imperative to look over for a track day. Upgrading the cooling system, or the fans can help with performance. You want everything to be as reliable as possible, so taking preventative measures to increase system efficiency will help your car perform better on the track. Think of the enormous amount of heat created by pushing the car to its peak performance. A reliable cooling system will ensure that nothing melts, warps or suffers other damage. Many stock systems aren’t up to this kind of task. Sometimes, you can even add vents to the hood to help the heat dissipate.

 

Going to the track is an exciting way to test out your car. Track days provide safe environments for cars to compete with each other, and just to see what the car can actually do. Make sure that your car is track ready by following some of the tips above.
