DSP | OEM Integration
Stock Look | Aftermarket Sound
Sounds Incredible Mobile in Brookfield, CT specializes in OEM integration. OEM integration typically refers to the process of upgrading the sound quality of a vehicle’s car audio system while maintaining the stock stereo in the dash. This can be achieved through the use of a DSP, Digital Pre-Amp adapter or Line Output Converter. We carry a variety of products that enable us to upgrade the sound while retaining the original look, features and function of your vehicle’s in-dash infotainment system.
Enhancing a Factory Sound System
One of the easiest ways to improve sound quality in any stock car audio system is to add a subwoofer. To properly recreate the full presence and depth of most audio recordings in a vehicle, you really need a subwoofer to accurately reproduce those lower frequencies. We humans we can hear down to 20Hz. However, even the best interior car speakers on the market are only capable of reproducing 60 – 80 Hz effectively. Even then, this is usually not at a high enough output level to be reasonably heard over road and tire noise. A subwoofer is designed to reproduce those lower frequencies that are naturally missing in most standard car audio systems.
Digital Sound Processors
What if your stock car stereo sounds harsh, tinny, muddy or hollow? If you desire more clarity, vibrancy, warmth, articulation and nuance, you may be interested in a Digital Sound Processor. More commonly known as a DSP, Digital Sound Processors are able to take the output from a factory stereo and correct it, giving us a clean, flat, pre-amp signal to work with. We can then feed this super clean audio signal to higher quality aftermarket speakers and amplifiers, all while keeping the original look, fit, finish and functionality of your factory stereo.
Digital Pre-amp Adapters
Depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle, a Digital Pre-amp may be an option. Digital pre-amps adapters are a nice easy way to obtain a pure, clean pre-amp signal from a factory radio. They utilize a simple T-harness style connection to your factory stereo and use software to digitally correct the output. Similar to a DSP, but simpler in design and execution, pre-amp adapters allow us to easily add higher quality aftermarket speakers and amplifiers to enhance a stock car stereo system while retaining completely stock appearance and function.
Can’t I just upgrade the speakers?
This is one of the most common questions we get from clients. The truth is in many vehicles, simply upgrading the speakers to a higher quality set is a lot like taking two steps forward and one step back. Without properly addressing the limited sound quality and output from your factory stereo, you can never reach the full sound potential of those aftermarket premium speakers.
