WHAT ARE BASS RESTORATION PROCESSORS?

The bass is a really important part of a sound system. The ability to hear the music’s low frequencies will greatly improve your music experience inside your car. Of course, we have the subwoofers that will definitely allow us to hear more of the low frequencies, but sometimes, subwoofers can be costly and can be difficult to install due to the size constraints. 

 

A bass restoration processor (or BRP) is generally, in simple terms, a bass booster. BRPs digitally restore the bass that might still be lacking if you lack the bass powers of a subwoofer on your vehicle. They have a built-in equalizer to adjust the frequency and the ideal amount of bass the car owner wants for their music. Typically, BRPs have three types of adjustments: frequency, width and level.

 

The “frequency” adjustment allows the owner to the specific frequencies they want to be brought out in the music. The “width” adjustment allows the owner to adjust the amount of frequencies that will be affected. You can adjust the BRP to affect a narrow or wide bandwidth of frequencies along a selected frequency. And finally, the “level” adjustment allows the owner to adjust the level of effect, hence giving you a sound made specifically for you, just the way you like it.

BRPs aren’t just used to improve the bass sounds and give you that heart-pounding bass. It improves the low-frequency sound on all kinds of music.  It can modify the way a specific music will sound. It digitally restores the desired frequency and powers up the low-end sound, injecting it again in the audio signal to give it an improved bass impact.


One of the most famous bass restoration processors in the market today is the EPICENTER series from AudioControl but other brands, like Soundstream, have put out their own BRPs as well. And right now they are under the HOT DEALS on onlinecarstereo.com! So, what are you waiting for? Go now and check out our array of BRPs on amazing deals right now and check out the other products while you're at it.

COAXIAL VS COMPONENT SPEAKERS -- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Searching for the perfect speakers for your car is already an overwhelming thing to think about, much less think about what type of speaker to get. We always encounter coaxial and component speakers, but really, what’s the difference between these two types of speakers? (Disclaimer: These are just the basic differences between the two types of speakers. It is still advisable to research a bit more on the different types of coaxial and component speakers as they still have different specifications.)

 

Coaxial speakers are the most common (and popular!) type of speakers and are also called full-range speakers. They come in different configurations. The different types of coaxial speakers are also referred to as “drivers”. There is what we call the 2-way, the most common one, which is comprised of a woofer with a tweeter mounted on top of it. There is also the 3-way, also called tri-axial speakers, which is comprised of a woofer, a tweeter and a mid-range. 

 

Coaxial speakers are easy to install and requires minimal customization, and are more affordable than component speakers. This is probably the reason why coaxial speakers are so popular and are the choice of speakers car owners purchase if they just want to replace the factory-installed speakers of their vehicle. However, they lack the bass or the "boom" that component speakers might offer, especially if you enhance your component system with subwoofers.

 

Component speakers, also called “separates”, on the other hand, have a more advanced design than coaxial speakers. They are a speaker system where speakers are mounted separately. They consist of a woofer, tweeter, and crossover. 

Component speakers, unlike coaxial speakers, are more complicated to install than coaxial speakers. They're a bit more time-consuming to install and may require the help or the expertise of a professional to install them. They are also more expensive than coaxials. However, component speakers allow for a lot of customization. If you are planning to do a full system, complete with subwoofers and ultratweeters, getting component speakers is the way to go.

 

Choosing whether to get coaxial speakers or component speakers still depend on the car owner and their preferences. It still depends on the car owner how much they are willing to pay for their car audio, and whether they want customization for it or not. 

 

Either way, we here at onlinecarstereo.com have a wide array of coaxials and component speakers, and we’re currently having up to 15% off to a lot of our Kicker speakers, a lot of which are component and coaxial speakers. We also offer up to 15% off on our Kicker subwoofers and amps as well. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to receive weekly promotions and save tons of cash!

TAKE YOUR BOATING EXPERIENCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH THE KICKER MARINE SERIES!

Kicker Marine Speakers

The Kicker Marine Speakers is sure to take your boating experience to the next level! You can choose between three different sizes -- the 4-inch, 8-inch and 6x9 speakers that come in both charcoal and white grilles so you can easily match the theme of your audio setup with the theme of your boat. 

What makes them different from Kicker’s standard CS or KSC speakers? Marine speakers have a motor that is completely encased in the basket so it is completely sealed. The wires that connect to the amplifier are gold-plated instead of tin to ensure it is water-tight and safe from corrosion. Gold-plated wires do a lot better with corrosion resistance. The Kicker Marine Speakers’ grilles have a built-in drainage port to prevent standing water.

The Kicker KM Series Speakers have an awesome LED light display and you get to choose between seven colors:

  • Red
  • Magenta
  • Green
  • Lime green
  • Blue
  • Blue-white
  • Aquamarine

Want to amp up the cool? There is a controller unit (KMLC LED controller), sold separately, that unlocks 20 colors and 19 lighting modes. Isn’t that awesome?

 

Kicker Marine Subwoofers

Kicker Freeair (45KMF102, 45KMF124 and 45KMF104) Marine Subwoofers and KM Subwoofers (45KM104, 45KM124, 45KM122) need no enclosure, so you can mount these versatile subwoofers nearly anywhere. You can choose between the 10 and 12-inch marine subwoofers that were tested for salt/fog and UV exposure, meeting or exceeding ASTM standards, so you can be assured that these bad boys are completely weatherproof. They have a completely sealed motor structure and locking/sealed terminal cover to make it splash-proof, and a tough Santoprene® surround.

Much like the marine coaxial speakers, there are optional LED grilles (sold separately) for KM Subwoofers. They also come in seven selectable LED colors. They also can be controlled by the KMLC LED Controller (also sold separately) for 20 colors and 19 different lighting modes to jazz up your already cool party!

 

 

Kicker Marine Amplifiers

Kicker KXMA400.2 and KXMA400.4 are marine amps that feature conformal coated circuit boards to protect the heart of the amp from water damage. All the power terminals meet stringent ABYC/NMMA standards and the thick gasketing protects the control cover from unwanted moisture. The aluminum chassis is also UV treated for extra-long life.

Included with the amps is a wireless remote that goes way beyond being a simple bass knob. You can control as many as four KXM Mono amplifiers simultaneously, plus the bass channel of the five-channel amplifier. You can monitor and adjust vital functions of the amp such as clipping, gain, bass boost and more.

These Class D amplifiers deliver as much as 1,200 watts of power -- while requiring an incredibly small footprint.

The amps also have a specially designed gain control that lights up when the perfect input signal is detected from your radio. An adjustable 24dB crossover is featured on the marine amplifiers, as does 18dB of KickEQ+™ bass boost.
