Replacing your stock speakers with aftermarket, high performance car audio speakers is the #1 way to get better sound from a car stereo. Many people believe that the easiest way to get better sound is to change out the head unit. While this will generally improve the features available versus the stock stereo (depending on what kind of vehicle and radio being used), the sound quality doesn’t usually improve. At The Specialists, we utilize our database of thousands of installations to fine-tune our suggestions to match your vehicle’s acoustics, your budget and of course your listening habits and preferred genre. An aftermarket head unit has roughly the same power output capability that a stock radio does. Additionally, chances are the factory speakers are tuned to the stock radio; so changing out just the radio may result in worse sounding music. Let one of our Specialists take a listen with you and we’ll make a plan. The easiest way to get better sound from a car stereo is to replace the speakers.
Add an Amplifier - This combination will bring your OEM system to life. It lets you fine tune with an active crossover network and double the power being sent to your stock speakers. This will give you a sound that’s clearer and louder. Plus, when it’s time for your next upgrade, you’ll be perfectly equipped to power aftermarket speakers.
This is one of the easiest ways to quickly and dramatically Upgrade Your Sound. By adding some sub-bass to a stock audio system you’ll be amazed how much better your audio system sounds. That bottom octave doesn’t need to rattle the glass (although we can) to round out your listening experience. The interior of a vehicle is an intimate listening room. You might as well hear everything the artists and engineers spent so much effort to include. It’s all about the box! A custom enclosure designed by The Specialists will maximize output, efficiency and overall sound quality. We also carry a full line of pre-made enclosures engineered to our specs and an excellent second choice.
One of the best ways to improve the performance of your sound system is with MESA Mat from The Specialists. MESA Mat is premium sound damping mat that we apply to metal to eliminate vibrations and reduce the transmission of noise into the vehicle. When you’re driving down the road, noise from your tires, your exhaust system, the engine and the wind enter the vehicle by vibrating surfaces, which in turn, pass the noise into the interior. Through the addition of a dense butyl damping mat material, the ability of the sound energy to exit those metal panels is reduced. MESA Mat can also be used to seal openings in door panels and the rear cargo deck in vehicles. This helps eliminate sound cancellation caused by the sound energy from the rear of a speaker mixing with the energy from the front. The result is a dramatic improvement in bass and midbass performance.
The Specialists’ industry leading experience in signal processing combined with specially designed 24-bit DSP’s (digital signal processors) offers music enthusiasts the ultimate audio experience. Features like precise equalization, adjustable crossovers, signal delay, signal summing/distribution and AccuBASS® make our preferred vendor, AudioControl’s Digital Mobile Audio Processors top-of-the-line performers. Every make, model, and year of car is different, so installation of an upgraded sound system can be tricky. Most factory radios today are so much more than the radio. They are the command center for the infotainment system of the vehicle and changing them gets very expensive (if even possible) and you do not get much of a sound improvement. The problem is that its sound quality might not be up to your standards. The Specialists’ Factory System Upgrades using the finest signal processors make your Good factory system Sound Great! And you get to keep your factory infotainment system.
We stock thousands of Vehicle-specific Car Stereo installation hardware and supplies. Your Car stereo system will only sound as good as the quality of the installation (for which we are famous.

For proper installation you need the proper hardware such as custom Dash Kits and Wiring harnesses, ABS plastic sheet, AM/FM antennas and adapters or extension cables, auxiliary audio input adapters, linear actuators, OEM power antenna replacement masts, factory car radio removal tools, fans, mounting screws and hardware, speaker adapters, tool, and sound absorption material. We employ an software program, to match your vehicle to the required accessories to get the most out of your installation.

With creative design and stringent testing, The Specialists has participated in the development of the MESA Wire line featuring performance and ergonomics. All power distribution blocks feature the highest-grade materials for maximum power distribution. Proper sizing ensures that every available power resource is available to your electronics.

Our premium audio cables are designed with the goal of achieving the purest sound quality that even the most critical audiophiles will appreciate. Cables do make a difference in sound quality and help reduce any unwanted RF injected noise.
Our Amp kits uniquely use “true gauge” wire that strictly follows the American Wire Gauge standard. Take a look at some other wire and you will find that the diameter includes a large amount of insulation and very little wire. Some even use copper-clad or aluminum only wire, compromising the wire’s ability to transfer full current. Our MESA Power and Ground wire included in our amp kits is made with high strand count pure oxygen-free copper that ensures your amps are getting the power they need to perform at their best. MESA wire is exclusive to qualified MESA dealers, a network of the finest Car Audio retailers in the country.
Our Power and Speaker wire also strictly follow the American Wire Gauge standard ensuring that your amps and speakers are getting the power that they need to perform at their best. The ultra-high strand count and frosted PVC jacket on the power wire increase the flexibility making for hassle-free installations
MESA Wire from The Specialists is the most advanced power distribution and audio cable system in the industry.
