Crutchfield's car audio experts Ken and Zak present an overview of Focal car audio products. Focal is a leading name in high-quality sound and Crutchfield is proud to have them in our lineup.

The Crutchfield MasterSheet™ is a vehicle-specific set of instructions that shows you how to install a receiver and speakers in your vehicle.

In Part 3 of our series: Jeff upgraded his speakers again, ran higher-quality wire, and added a processor to sculpt the sound. He had to modify the F-150's door a little to get the speakers to fit — but when you want the best, there's no need to let a little modification get in the way.

Like most high schoolers, Morgan didn't particularly enjoy getting stuck driving the family minivan. And a minivan isn't a vehicle you'd normally think of to put in a rockin' aftermarket sound system. Now, it sounds better than a new car's stereo and she has a place to plug in her iPhone, too.
