Car Stereo Installation Terms for Everyday People

The world of car stereos covers a lot of ground. Automotive audio systems include everything from a simple radio to advanced units that create thundering bass. For the mass of consumers who fall somewhere in the middle of this range, selecting a car stereo or CD player can be a real challenge. What follows are some terms a typical car stereo salesman might use.

  • Amplifier - This device takes a low voltage signal from the preamp and turns it into the stronger, high voltage signal that is pushed through the speakers.
  • Bass - The lower register of the sound spectrum are referred to a bass. In a car stereo system, the bass can be amplified to thunderous proportions with aftermarket accessories.
  • Electronic Playlist Hookup - Most modern car stereo systems include not only a CD player, but also a dedicated hookup for an electronic playlist player. Not every system works with every player, so make certain the sales staff knows exactly which player you'll be using.
  • Preamp - The device where all the sound adjustments are made before the signal is sent to the amplifier. The preamp may include an equalizer, which is why some people incorrectly refer to it as that.
  • Universal Mounting Kit - The dashboards in some older vehicles are not compatible with modern radios and stereo systems. In these cases, a universal mounting kit is used to help the new unit fit on the old style dashboards.
  • Removable Faceplate - Sadly, car audio systems are irresistible targets for thieves. That's why most modern systems are designed with a pop out front piece that can be easily removed when getting out of the car. Because the system won't work without the face plate, the stereo is well protected.

    Car stereos have existed in one form or another since the 1930s. These early stereos, or radios, didn't have subwoofers or other high-end sound systems. They didn't offer customers the ability to control the bass or treble levels in their vehicles. And they certainly didn't have luxury touches like surround sound systems. But, these early radios did enable car owners to listen to music and other radio programs while driving, and they quickly became a popular fixture in most automobiles. In the 1950s, car radios were even more prevalent, and units were installed in many cars. In the 60s and 70s, they grew still more prevalent, and they were often available on sale, and at discounted prices. In the 90s, the first amplifier was created, and the audio quality of these devices improved tremendously. CD players were also invented in the 90s, and they enabled car owners to transport a wider selection of music in their vehicles. Today CD players and stereos are widely available, and compatible with cars of all makes and models. Electronic and digital models are often available for sale. And accessories like adapters and speakers are also often available. If they're willing to look hard enough, savvy customers can often find these radios on sale, at prices far below the typical retail value. Stereos, headphones, and other types of audio equipment can be found at local service providers. These care stereo service companies offer interested customers a variety of makes and models to choose from, and their prices are always exceptionally reasonable.
