Tuning Car Audio System

Tuning the car audio system is essential to get the best out of your paid amount. After tuning, you can differentiate the sound quality as there would be a lot of reduced background noises and much more.

Audio system tuning is easy; you can do it on your own by following some simple steps. Here is the complete guideline and step-by-step procedure to tune your car’s audio system. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Be Calm with the Process

Before starting this procedure, you must be calm and have spare time. It will take some time to be completed. Park your car in a safe place because you are never going to play around with your car systems while driving.

Now get in the driving seat and start tuning. Be patient while making all the adjustments. However, there is nothing to worry about because the experience will be fun overall.

Step 2: Play a Song

Now it is time to play your favorite song or one you listen to frequently. If you know its sound well, it will help you to tune the car stereo. Be ready, because you are going to listen to it many times. However, you must choose music with enough sonic varieties to tune the stereo perfectly for all kinds of music. These sonic varieties include:

  • High notes that include flutes and brass
  • Mid-range, including guitar and vocals
  • Lowest notes, including bass and drums

If your selected music lacks any of these, you will feel issues with the sound quality of that music whenever you will play it. So, make the right choice.

Step 3: Tune the Fade Controls

Before going to this step, grab a paper or open notes on your phone to write down all the settings. Start tuning the receiver’s fade controls until the music is coming only from the front speaker. Now adjust the left-to-right balance until the music sounds great to you. Note down the setting.

Now, do the opposite with the fade controls until the music comes from the rear speakers only. Adjust the left-to-right balance until you get the desired sound quality. Note down its reading too. It is great if the balanced setting is the same for both settings. Otherwise, adjust the balance to a suitable setting.

Step 4: Set the Tone

Figure out the issues with the tone of all the high, mid, and low notes. If they are not balanced, you have to adjust them. Many car receivers have tone-adjusting EQ presets. You can try them because, in many cases, they can make the sound quality according to your requirements.

Now fine-tune using different controls and adjustments on the receiver. Try different presets and adjustments until all the tones are in the best sound quality.

Step 5: Tuning Speakers

Tuning speakers do not require much effort, but it improves the efficiency of the car audio system. Moreover, if you are feeling distortion in the sound coming out of the music system due to background noises, it can also fix it. Again, turn on your favorite music and follow these simple steps.

       I.          Adjust the Tweeters

Make adjustments to the tweeter level or turn it over in various directions until the music sounds to be perfect to your ears.

     II.          Adjust the Rear Fill

Adjust the Rear speakers of the audio system to increase the spaciousness of the sound and add some depth to the music.

   III.          Use Noise Dampening Material

The use of noise-dampening material can reduce the vibration that affects the sound quality of the music. Fewer background noises mean less distortion, and it ultimately means amazing quality music.

Final Words

Tuning the car audio system seems difficult, but it becomes easier when you concentrate on what you are doing. Adjusting the controls, playing with different settings, and setting the tones are the main steps that can add much more to your audio system. Adjust the speakers and their components to create smooth music coming out from them.
