When buying a radio tape recorder in a car, many people think about installing new speakers. However, when choosing them, a number of factors must be taken into account in order to get the maximum beneficial effect from the purchase.
Take a close look at the power of your radio. Usually it is indicated in the documentation or directly on the device case. Remember that here you need a nominal power, not a maximum power, which is often an overestimated value, which is a kind of advertising stunt of the manufacturer.
After that, decide on the power of the speakers, which should be no less than the nominal power of at least one channel of the amplifier. The optimal value is one that is 2-3 times higher than the power of the radio. Indeed, with the appearance of a headroom, the sound will have minimal distortion, and the service life of the speakers will increase significantly.
Pay particular attention to the sensitivity of the speakers, which allows them to sound louder. Do not forget to find out the value of the load resistance of the radio tape recorder, because when choosing speakers, this parameter must also be taken into account. To achieve the maximum power, it is necessary that the resistance is not lower than the minimum value indicated on the radio tape recorder. To reduce the resulting impedance, you can connect the speakers in parallel to each other.
Think about where you want to install the speakers: in the door trim, back or in the trunk panel. Depending on this, decide on the number, size and manufacturer of speakers. Remember that not always a large number of them will affect the sound quality.
Also, take a closer look at manufacturers who have been producing this equipment for a long time, because here you risk less purchasing a low-quality product. An important factor is the cost of a set of speakers, because often this is what is decisive. Do not forget about the design and color of the installed equipment, which will delight your eyes and ears for a long time.
