Car audio speakers: what you need to know

Speaker Information ...

Speaker systems are very important because they are the units that actually reproduce the sound of electrical energy. When I buy speakers, I just want to get a high end. Here is what you need to know and what to look for:

First, let's start with the types of speakers you'll find in the world of car audio.

Woofer - A large speaker designed to reproduce the lowest frequencies of the audio spectrum.
Mid - A mid-size speaker designed to reproduce the mid frequencies of the audio spectrum.
Tweeter - A small-sized speaker designed to reproduce the highest frequencies in the audio spectrum.

There are other variations of these speakers available as well.

Surely you've heard of "subwoofers" that reproduce the lowest audio frequencies. Essentially, these are the same as the woofers, only bigger and with more power handling. The result? Thundering bass! As the gods sent it themselves ...

You can also find "midbass" drivers. These are similar to woofers, but are generally used to bring more bass to the front sound stage. Many times, they are connected to cross networks.

Another type of speaker you can find is called a "รีวิวลําโพง marshall" and it reproduces the highest frequencies in the audio spectrum.

Now to surprise you ...

When you buy a "speaker", you are actually buying a speaker system. AKA, more than one thing working together to produce a result. Let's take a look at the types of speaker systems available ...

TYPES OF SPEAKER SYSTEMS:

Basically, there are two types of speaker "systems" that exist.

1. "Coaxial", "three way", "full range", etc.

These speaker systems are designed to fit the location of the factory speakers in your vehicle. They are often referred to as a "speaker," but they have more than one speaker and also contain a crossover. (coaxialspeak.jpg)

2. "Components", "Separated"

These speaker systems essentially take everything from the previous speaker system and divide it into parts. (componentspeak.jpg)

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE AND WHY SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MYSELF?

To repeat the obvious, one speaker system has all of its components in one package, and the other speaker system has all of its components in separate packages. Both speakers do the exact same thing and work in exactly the same way, BUT THE COMPONENT SYSTEMS ARE BETTER.
