TIPS FOR BUYING A GOOD CAR BATTERY

Car batteries, like all things, will have their power wear out eventually. However, there are certain key things you need to consider when buying a car battery that will help you make the best purchase possible for your car and make the most out of it.

  • PRICE

As much as it is tempting to buy the most affordable car battery possible, sometimes it will end up costing you more in the long run. Yes, you might be saving maybe $50-$100 buying a more affordable battery compared to a $300-$400 one, but in reality, these batteries have shorter battery life spans that will end up making you buy one every 1-2 years or so compared to a slightly more expensive one that will last you years, especially if you take good care of your car batteries. Research a bit more and save up to purchase a battery that will last you a bit longer, making you save up more money (and avoid the hassle!) in the long run.

 

  •  SIZE

Car batteries do not have a universal size, “one-size-fits-all” kind of situation. Look for a car battery that fits the terminal locations. If the terminals are in the wrong spot then it’s either the car cables wouldn’t be able to reach the battery or they might not be snug enough to fit.  

 

  • MANUFACTURE DATE

Pick the newest car battery, if possible -- or take note of the car battery’s manufacturing date. As a practical tip, buy car batteries that are less than six months old from when they were manufactured.

Another tip is to check a 2-character alphanumeric code on the battery. The first character is a letter from A-L, which represents the 12 months of the year (A is January, B is February and so forth) while the 2nd character is a number from 0 to 9 (0 is 2010, 1 is 2011 and so forth).

 

  • WARRANTY

Choose a car battery with a long free-replacement period. Car battery manufacturers divide their warranties into the free-replacement period and the prorated period. Prorated period is the partial reimbursement of the customer after a certain amount of years if the free-replacement period has already lapsed.

 

  • POWER REQUIREMENT

For those who live in colder temperatures, this should be very important: CCA (cold cranking amps) is a measurement of the ability of the battery to start a car at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Meanwhile, CA (cranking amps) is the energy needed to start a vehicle at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

  • RESERVE CAPACITY

Reserve capacity is to indicate how long the battery can continue to run and operate if the alternator, stator and rotor fails. It is the number of minutes a 12-volt battery can provide a current of 25amps at 80 degrees Fahrenheit without falling below minimum voltage. It is also a measure of how long someone can accidentally leave lights on (battery discharging) and still won’t need a jump-start.

These are just some of the basic tips when choosing a good car battery. Onlinecarstereo.com, aside from being your one-stop shop with car audio/video and accessories, is also an XS Power Authorized Dealer! XS Power specializes in car racing and competition car audio, so you are assured that you’ll be getting a high-performing car battery.

WHAT ARE EQUALIZERS?

When we do upgrades, we audio geeks still tend to configure our sound to the best hertz and decibel we can get. Sometimes, even though we've upgraded to the best speakers or subwoofers, there is still room for small adjustments to achieve that perfect sound. This is where equalizers come in.

Equalizers are devices that lets you tweak your sound frequencies in different spectrum. When done right, it can improve your car sound and eliminate unwanted frequencies and customize your music. Equalizers come in different forms. It can be built in your head unit or receiver; or it can come as a separate in dash unit which can be classified as graphic, parametric or digital.

Graphic equalizers are the most common and can be used easily. It is makes use of sliders that represents the shape of the frequency you are trying to achieve hence the name. The sliders are used to cut or boost certain parts of the sound frequency whichever you desire.

Parametric equalizers is a little more complex than the graphic. It will allow you to adjust the width and center point of any frequency band. A parametric equalizer will also allow for Q adjustment (the quality of the curve of the band passed by the filter) of a frequency.

Digital equalizers offer the best of both worlds. From the graphical equalizer, it takes the ability of a user to see the adjustments made on the frequency. From parametric equalizers, it takes the ability to control the actual parameters of sound. The values are displayed on a screen digitally.

Onlinecarstereo offers various equalizers for your needs. Here are some of the best sellers:

AudioControl DQ-61: Audio Control produces the best EQ's in the industry and the DQ-61 is one of the best sellers. It is a 6 channel line out converter with equalization and signal delay that provide precise tuning. It also features AccuBASS with variable threshold and gain processes and corrects roll-off bass. You can also checkout other equalizer models from Audio Control at Onlinecasrtereo.

Cadence CEQ777: This equalizer from Cadence is a bang-for-the-buck equalizer that features simple 4 band parametric knobs.Cadence signal processors create clean, noise-free, high voltage signals while conserving valuable interior space and installation time.

JL Audio Fix-86: If you have the budget to spend, the JL Audio Fix-86 will give your state-of-the-art digital processing power. Unlike typical OEM interface products, the FiX™ 86 automatically corrects time-delayed factory outputs prior to signal summing and EQ correction. Calibration takes just a single button press and about 30 seconds to complete, with no special equipment needed.

Memphis Audio EQL7: In the mid tier equalizer product, the EQL7 boasts a 7-Band Graphic Equalizer that allows you to dial in your system for peak performance.

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!
