Superiority of Aftermarket Car Audio Upgrades, Part 2

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the specific advantages held by aftermarket car sound system components compared to the stock options generally present in vehicles. While newer vehicles on today’s market certainly do have better audio capabilities than they would have a decade or two ago, they still lag far behind the best components that can be found on the aftermarket in terms of sound quality, entertainment and several other notable areas.

At Laketown Speed and Sound, we’re proud to offer a wide range of car audio installation services, from basics like the speaker or car subwoofer to comprehensive entertainment systems including LEDs, head units and numerous other features. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll dig into a few additional reasons why aftermarket parts are not only absolutely worth the money you spend on them, but also major upgrades on the stock audio components generally present in your vehicle to begin with.

Entertainment Versatility

One of the key areas you can upgrade with aftermarket parts that simply isn’t available in most stock vehicles, even brand new 2020 models, is the head unit and several related entertainment areas. While it’s true that newer vehicles bring you touch-screen and related options that are upgrades on previous generations, these still lack several major areas of audio integration, including detailed sound adjustment in several areas the music connoisseur will have a keen ear for.

In addition, though, upgraded heat units and related areas offer a far greater range of broad entertainment options than you might find. On top of quality Bluetooth and Smartphone integration, which some older vehicle models might not have available, you also have access to things like hands-free calling, upgraded navigation and even several pure entertainment-only areas.

Sound Depth

We talked about sound quality in part one of our series, and sound depth is a related – and vital – area to consider as well. When we talk about “depth” of sound, we’re referring to how rich and detailed it is – how easily listeners are able to pick up complexities and nuance of the music being played, and separate various instruments or sound sources. Better depth means a clearer, more robust sound from anywhere in the car, and this is far more easily possible with aftermarket parts like subwoofers, amplifiers and others.

Audio System Lifespan

Finally, an added benefit of upgrading your audio system is improving its expected lifespan. Upgraded parts simply last longer than stock components, plus often come with extended warranties that cover you for many additional years. In plenty of cases, our upgraded audio equipment actually outlives the vehicle itself, and can be transferred to a new vehicle if needed.
