We wanted to answer the most basic question about car audio: is it really worth it to upgrade? With the help of the Crutchfield Labs, we set out to prove just how much better music sounds when it's played through a high-quality aftermarket system.

Different amps with the same wattage ratings can have wildly different prices. Why pay more for the same amount of power? Because not all watts are created equal. The reason? Build quality.

2008-up Scion xB
by Jon Paulette

The original Scion xB was a small, quirky box of a car that quickly found a loyal following in a crowded U.S. marketplace. The second-gen xB is longer, lower and wider, but it's still a practical people-mover with just enough of Scion's trademark Scion-ness to keep things interesting.

Clarion's XC1410 4-channel amp delivers 50 watts RMS per channel from a chassis that's about as long and wide as a dollar bill. This micro-sized amp can fit almost anywhere, even behind many dashboards. And Clarion managed to pack more watts per square inch inside the XC1410 than almost any other 4-channel amp made.

2007-2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
by Jon Paulette

The FJ Cruiser is the spiritual descendant of Toyota's original FJ40 Land Cruiser. The modern FJ combines the original's off-road ability with modern conveniences and retro styling that helps it stand out from ordinary SUVs. All you need now is a stereo that stands out from other FJs.

2001-2005 Mazda Miata
by Jon Paulette

When you're driving a Miata on a curvy, country road, music probably isn't all that important. But into each life a little rain must fall and the only thing to do when that happens is put the top up and enjoy some music. You're driving a great little car, so why not enjoy some great stereo sound?

2004-2006 Scion xB
by Jon Paulette

Scion's first-gen xB was a welcome addition to an often bland automotive landscape. The xB isn't for everyone, but if it's the car for you, you'll be rewarded with a surprisingly vast amount of interior space, decent road manners and an impressive list of standard features.

2009-2013 Volkswagen Routan
by Jon Paulette

The Volkswagen Routan offers an interesting blend of American ingenuity and Teutonic engineering. It's based on Chrysler's fifth-generation minivans, but there's much more to the Routan than a simple case of badge-engineering.

The fifth-generation Chrysler Town & Country offers everything you'd want in a luxurious people mover. With loads of space and lots of features, the T&C lets you haul kids and cargo in comfort. Upgrading the entertainment system will help make it "fun for the whole family."

2006-2011 Honda Civic
by Rick Carlton

The Civic has evolved from its humble sub-compact beginnings to become a leader in the luxury compact segment. By 2011, it regularly topped nearly all competitors in U.S. sales. This profile shows you what to expect when you replace your factory stereo system.

1998-2010 Volkswagen Beetle
by Traci Benoit

Designed to capitalize on the immense popularity of the original VW Beetle, the New Beetle made its debut in 1998. It went largely unchanged throughout its production run, which lasted until 2010. Replacing the Beetle's stereo is fairly easy, but the speakers require a little more work.

2007-2008 Honda Fit
by Jon Paulette

The 2007-2008 Fit looks cool, holds a surprising amount of stuff, gets out of its own way on the interstate, and actually provides comfortable seating for at least two adult humans of normal size. No wonder it was a perennial fixture on numerous car magazine "Best of" lists.

2002-2004 Nissan Altima
by Jon Paulette

When Nissan designed the 2002-2004 Altima, they knew that anything with four doors and a place to tie down a child seat would sell like hotcakes. But they designed something interesting anyway. This Altima is roomy, practical, safe, and - surprise, surprise - fun to drive.

2003-2011 Honda Element
by Jon Paulette

The Honda Element is one of those versatile vehicles that can handle just about anything you throw at it or in it. The tall, boxy shape holds a lot of stuff, and the clever door arrangement and low step-in makes access easy. There's also plenty of room for an impressive stereo.

A Rockford Fosgate system gave the family minivan a major audio overhaul while still keeping the manufacturer's dual DVD players intact for the kids.

2008-up Dodge Grand Caravan
by Jon Paulette

The redesigned 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan improved upon all that was good about Chrysler's genre-defining minivan line. The GC is a comfortable, capable people-mover with plenty of room for audio and video improvements.

The mobile audio/video section of the Crutchfield Labs lets our writers, researchers, and advisors get hands-on experience with the latest car audio products.

Michael H's 2009 Kia Spectra
by Robert Ferency-Viars

Michael decided that the factory stereo in his Kia Spectra wasn't nearly up to the task. He shopped around and found affordable gear that could give deliver the sound he wanted.

After a little over a year of driving my 2011 Subaru Impreza, I knew it was time to change out the system from factory equipped to an aftermarket setup. It also made sense to upgrade since I write all things speaker and subwoofer related for Crutchfield, and I get to hear amazing car stereo equipment on a regular basis thanks to our labs. The final product sounds amazing, and helps me enjoy riding around town even more.
