Our Car Audio Installers Recommend Their Favorite Summer Gear

Now that summer is here, you’re enjoying all the freedoms that this season brings. Like the rest of us who are planning out the perfect summer, there’s a lot to be excited about. However, you might already be thinking about whether you’ll pull off everything you want to do before the season ends, so you can say you had a summer to remember with no regrets.

What can you do to make sure you’re living in the moment and not keeping an eye on the clock? We think it all comes down to acting on what you really need to ensure your summer is a success. From our perspective at San Diego Car Stereo, that means getting in touch with our car audio installers for the very best summer upgrades for your car stereo system.

We asked our technicians to recommend a list of the aftermarket upgrades that make or break a great summer, and here’s the list they came up with.

Replace Your Car Audio with a New Car Stereo System

If you’re truly into high-quality, powerful sound in your vehicle, you notice all the small details. Whether it’s the sound quality itself or the features on your stereo deck, there’s things about your current system that you probably wish were different.

If you’re planning to go on a road trip or have many more nights out this summer, you’ll want to focus on the perfect car soundtrack and not all the imperfections in your car audio system. You won’t want to be worrying about all the little details that limit your enjoyment of your favorite music, not to mention the look of your system as a centerpiece in your interior.

Our car audio installers recommend looking into a superior brand for your car stereo system. That way, you can ensure high performance, state-of-the-art smart features, multimedia options, and sound quality that will turn your summer into an experience you won’t forget.

Signature brands we have in stock now include:

  • Kenwood

  • Pioneer

  • Scosche

  • Alpine

You can’t go wrong if you select a system based on your local audio team’s recommendations, as well as the research you’ve done online. Feel free to explore the latest stereo systems from these manufacturers today. A lot has changed since you saved up for your first car stereo receiver.

New Car Audio Speakers Make a Big Difference for Road Trips and San Diego Nightlife

If you’re already feeling good about your car stereo system, but you still feel like something’s missing, you might consider some of the other components that are essential to delivering the best sound quality you can get in a car today.

Excellent speakers, of course, come first, as these car audio products do much of the heavy lifting to ensure well-rounded, optimized sound. You can’t get that from original equipment manufacturer (OEM) car speakers - even when the dealership tells you the sound quality is great. There’s a reason aftermarket upgrades exist, so you can make upgrades that auto manufacturers simply can’t put in any car, no matter how well-made it is.

Consider one of the following speaker manufacturers that are known for cranking out extraordinary speakers:

  • Focal

  • Kenwood

  • Hertz

  • JL Audio

  • Rockford Fosgate

  • Pioneer

  • Alpine

Our car audio install team listens to a lot of speakers and gets to make the kinds of comparisons that most people don’t have time to think about. When we recommend a set of speakers for your vehicle, we really mean what we say. We’ve put every speaker through the litmus test and know whether they’re worth your time or if you should move on to another product.

Subwoofer and Amplifiers Round Out a Supreme Car Audio Package

Many car audio enthusiasts who get the best speakers and receivers on the market today realize that something is still missing. You can get great sound from great speakers for your car stereo, but the sound won’t be everything you want it to be until you’ve considered a subwoofer and amplifier.

Subwoofers specifically handle that powerful, vibrating bass sound you crave, while amplifiers push your audio’s power to the max, so that every sound is sharp, crystal clear, and truly immersive - for you and drivers around you. Complete your car audio package with these items, and you’ll be well on your way to the perfect summer.

The premier car audio installers in San Diego have subwoofers and amplifiers from these outstanding manufacturers:

  • Kenwood

  • Hertz

  • JL Audio

  • Pioneer

  • Rockford Fosgate

  • Alpine

  • Infinity
