Whether you’re looking to upgrade the sound quality of your factory system, add more bass, or replace your factory speakers, Safe & Sound Mobile Electronics has a wide range of solutions to fit your vehicle.
When you add more power, you get more power which improves dynamic range. If your volume sounds distorted at high volumes or if you simply want your system to be louder, you may want to consider adding an amplifier for instantly clearer sounds at a larger range of volume levels. Overall, adding amplification is one of the best upgrades you can make to increase the total performance of your system.
Most factory sound systems can’t give you the dramatic and high quality bass range that comes from having a subwoofer. You can pair your subwoofer with an amp or get one that has an amp built in so that it’s already powered. Yes, bigger and better bass can make your heart feel funny and you’re your girlfriend’s hair fly around but it also makes recorded sound feel like there’s a live show happening in your car.
Once you’ve heard sound coming from quality factory replacement speakers, old factory speakers will sound well, old. If you decided to go for the amp and sub, you can get speakers to pair with them to further enhance that setup but, you can also replace your factory speakers even if you don’t go the amp and sub route. Don’t forget that every vehicle is different so it’s best that you make these improvements with a professional who knows what exactly your car needs and how to install it. Like us! The only thing we recommend doing yourself when it comes to your new system is showing it off.
You have many options when it comes to integrating your smartphone, iPod, or tablet into your car. Options range from custom installations to adapter solutions to help you and your vehicle work with the latest technology available.
Replacing Your Factory Radio
When we refer to the head unit, we are referring to the stereo that fits into your dash. Replacing the head unit in your car is not only the most convenient way to integrate your smartphone or mp3 player for use in your car, but it is often also the most affordable as well. Getting a head unit that easily integrates your devices into your car is an easy first step to getting the latest in new car infotainment without having to buy a new car. Additional features may also come with your new head unit such as bluetooth for hands free calling, navigation, and video. Some units even have native support for iOS or Android apps. There are a wide range of models, options, and price points available so you can get the smartphone/mp3 player integration upgrade that makes the most sense for you.
Factory Radio Adapters
Factory Radio adapters allow you to keep your factory radio while adding functionality. You can control your iOS devices through a wired connection without needing to completely replace or upgrade your stereo. The iSimple GateWay was the first interface that utilized a car’s built-in satellite radio connection to provide music from an iPod or iPhone, as well as library browsing by Artist, Album, Genre, and Playlist from the radio controls. GateWay delivers crystal-clear music from any iPod or iPhone model, and houses technology allowing it to be upgraded with an iSimple HD Radio, SCC1 SIRIUS satellite radio receiver or an iSimple Bluetooth module.
FM Modulators ie. Playing through your FM Radio
Using an FM modulator to play your audio output through your car’s speakers is not the most seamless way to integrate your devices into your car, but it is one of the simplest. We recommend trying the iSimple WiFli which transmits a digital RDS FM radio signal to the car stereo, resulting in sound quality superior to that of most FM modulators as well as track and song information displayed on car radios equipped with RDS technology. You can use the WiFli remote to play/pause your iPod or iPhone, as well as control tracks and select playlists.
