A lot of people think of loudness when they think of amplifiers, but that's just one benefit. An amplifier will make your music sound cleaner and more defined even at lower volumes.
Amplifiers can really bring the best qualities of aftermarket speakers forward. Aftermarket speakers, unlike factory speakers, are designed to handle more power, play cleaner, and reveal more detail than factory speakers, which are designed mainly to a certain (low) price point.
Subwoofers need an amp to move enough air to play the low frequencies. Some subs have the amp built in, called powered subwoofers, while your component subs use a separate amplifier.
So which type do you need? 2-channel? 4-channel? 5 or 6 channel? More channels? How much power? Are there certain features you want or need? Our expert walks you through it in this video.
