Tuning up your car's audio system
by Charlie Pastorfield

Whether you're a car audio newbie or a seasoned competitor, you want your new car stereo equipment to sound its best. Here are a few suggestions that will help you maximize your system's potential.

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.

Your single-DIN (2" tall) dash opening shouldn't stop you from taking advantage of in-dash navigation and DVD compatibility. Clarion's NZ503 navigation receiver sports a retractable 7" color touchscreen display that gives you access to detailed maps and a whole lot more. Check out the NZ503 in this demo video.

Alpine's CDE-HD149BT CD receiver packs a serious sonic punch and includes features like an HD Radio® tuner, built-in Bluetooth®, and Pandora® Internet radio control, too. Alpine's user-friendly controls round out the package, with the innovative new TuneIt™ smartphone-based app for tuning your system. Take a look at it in action in this demo video.

Retrosound helps you bring the sound in your classic ride into the modern age while staying true to the look and feel of your interior. Their receivers fit into the small and odd-size dash openings found in classic cars and trucks, and they also make speakers designed to get the most out of their receivers.

Kenwood's KDC-BT555U CD receiver gives you more choices in streaming music. Once you plug your iPhone® into the front USB input or connect your Android™ or Blackberry via Bluetooth®, you'll enjoy easy access to the musical resources of Pandora® Internet radio and iHeart Radio.

Check it out in this display and controls demo video.

Harry from Pioneer Electronics came to visit us here at Crutchfield and showed us some of the great features available on their DEH-80PRS CD receiver.

We wanted to answer the most basic question about car audio: is it really worth it to upgrade? Using a 2004 Ford F-150 as our test vehicle, we installed some great gear, then documented the system performance and improvements along the way:

Eric G. from Willamsville, NY, wanted to get his 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP's system to sound less harsh and more bass-heavy. After trial and error with different components, he ended up with some JL Audio speakers and a sweet Pioneer AVH-P3400BH DVD receiver, among other pieces of gear.

Just because you can't replace the radio doesn't mean you can't improve your car's audio. Brent P, who works in Crutchfield's IT department, boosted his 2007 Saab 9-3 wagon's sound and functionality without installing a new receiver.
