( Cars are very dear to their owner. Just like you care for your pet, your car also becomes a family member and it is quite natural that you would want to decorate it so that it looks attractive. The sound system of the car is of prime importance because, who doesn’t want to enjoy music while driving! But, if you are a music lover and want crystal clear music wherever you go, it would be best to go into the depths of the sound system that you will be buying, especially the amplifier.

The ability of the speakers to handle the power depends on the kind of amplifier that you are using. So, choosing the best amplifier becomes of crucial importance if you need music of high quality. However, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration when you are looking for a quality amplifier. Given below are some of the factors that will help pick the best:

* Compatibility of the system – leave everything else and start paying attention to the line level inputs and preamp outputs. These two are the deciding factors between a good amplifier and an average one. An amplifier will excellent line level input will produce a much better sound output and for preamp output, you need to have a good head unit. These two combine to give a mind-blowing sound effect and you get amazing music. The secret to clear music or sound is the unamplified signal that goes into the amplifier.

* Number of channels – there will be various configurations available for expensive amplifiers, but it is not always about the money. You need to decide how many speakers you want in your car. The channels of the amplifier will depend on the number of speakers you have in the system. However, the entire unit can change if you install a sub-woofer along with the normal woofer.

Ideally, there is a different channel for each of the speakers that are in the system, but if you have a sub-woofer installed, then there will be no need of having individual channels. The channel of the sub-woofer will do the job of the others. A sub-woofer not only handles the channels of the respective speakers, but also adds more power to the sound system.

* Go for the highest power – there is no denying that with more power comes better sound. So, never ever compromise on the power of a car stereo. Try to check the RMS value of the speakers before buying them.

If you go through the sound systems at, you will be surprised to see the high frequency speakers at very affordable prices. The ideal way to decide on the amplifier is after buying the speakers because then you will have an idea of how much power the amplifier can handle and also the channels that will be used.
