A basic guide to choosing the best speakers for your car sound system
When shopping for the best speakers for your car, there are a few important points to consider, first let's start with 2way vs mid bass
2-Way Coaxial VS Mid Bass
A mid-bass woofer is a type of speaker that produces sounds in the middle-low frequency range. Coaxial speakers are 2-way speakers mounted on the same “axis” – in other words, multiple speakers built together in the same speaker assembly. Most coaxial speakers provide a woofer cone and a separate tweeter with crossover for improved sound quality over that of a standard single cone speaker.
2-Way Coaxial Speaker advantage:
- Easy sound upgrade: they’re a drop-in replacement for existing poor-sounding single cone speakers.
- More speaker manufacturing options and price ranges for buyers (different levels of tweeter quality, crossover design, cone materials, etc).
- Somewhat similar performance to separate 2-way component speakers without the need for a bulky separate crossover box.
- They’re very common – in fact, they’re the most popular car speaker upgrade and they’re easy to find when shopping.
- Very affordable: good coaxial speakers can be found for around $25 and up per pair depending on the size & quality.
- Coaxial speakers can fix the poor frequency response (missing sound frequencies) you find with single-cone speakers. You nearly always get a big improvement in sound right away!
Mid Bass Speaker advantage:
• Add on with tweeter and crossover to enable wider range of sound from different direction
• Better frequency response and sound accuracy overall – even entry-level component speaker sets can have really great sound quality!
• More power handling – often 75 watts RMS, 100 watts RMS, or more.
•Better crossover component quality.
•Better speaker connector terminals and installation accessories.
•The ability to mount the tweeters at a line-of-sight listening angle and height for better stereo imaging during music playback.
