Many factory cars today come with what is called a component set-up or component speakers. These speakers that are also known by some as separates consist of a mid-range driver, a high range tweeter, and typically a crossover which separate the frequencies going to each speaker. Depending on the speaker size, sending the wrong type of frequencies can lead to premature wear and blown voice coils in the speaker. The crossover minimizes this, by making sure only the sound range that is supposed to go to the speaker gets through.
A component speaker set also can be installed in a vehicle that doesn’t have components stock, and will significantly raise the sound stage and increase the listening enjoyment of the system. In most cars today, we find the front speakers down by your ankle. Acoustically this makes no sense, but when a manufacturer builds a car, they don’t consider the owners music experience a priority. By adding a satellite tweeter in the dash or upper door panel, this brings up the sound and gives a more musical and accurate experience. So even if you don’t have a factory tweeter locations, one of our car audio specialist can install a component set and give you that higher end performance and factory look
