For many drivers, their car audio system is an important part of their overall driving experience. According to Headphones Addict, about 62% of drivers consider themselves music fans or music lovers. A fully functional car audio system is a must for anyone who adores music, so it's important to know when it's time to upgrade to a new one. How do you know when to replace your car's audio system? Here are three signs it's time to make an appointment for an installation.
1. Snaps, Crackles, and Pops
If you're getting snapping, crackling, or popping noises from your audio system, this indicates that it needs to be replaced. These strange noises can be signs of a problem with the speaker, a subwoofer, or another system part. You should have crystal clear sound from your audio system. If you don't, it's time to invest in a new one.
2. Tuning Problems
Sometimes the problem with your audio has nothing to do with the speakers and instead lies in the tuner. If you're having trouble picking up stations, this is a sign that you need a new system. You might also notice strange sounds in the background if your tuner has gone bad. These issues can make it impossible to enjoy your car to the fullest, so it's important to get a new audio system as soon as possible.
3. Powering on and off at Will
If you press the power button on your audio system and it doesn't consistently turn on, this indicates a malfunction somewhere. It may be difficult to diagnose the issue. This can happen for many reasons, but typically, it will only happen with older systems that are on their way out. You may have a wiring problem, or your head unit may be overdue for replacement. This type of issue is not something that will resolve itself, and typically, the best solution is to replace the system.
