Purchasing a music system advantageous for the car:
Several music systems come with an LCD fitting and displays. See which suits your pocket and budget. Choose a music system that provides the basic options of changing the tone settings to bass, treble, balance etc. Usually the best speakers that provide surround sound in the car has a total setting of six speakers- door speakers, rear speakers and speakers fitted in the back of the back seat. A real music freak would also purchase in sub-woofers or a nice set of tweeters!
Next step is to get the warranty card of the audio system in place. Check it twice and insist on the card being stamped on the date of purchase. Otherwise, repairing can cost a bomb!
Insist on buying it from a recognised dealer. An efficient sound system produces best auditory performance. One should also give up the hypothesis that sound systems large in terms of size produce good sound lucidity and quality.
