I have a 99 ford ranger, the stock radio is pretty good. I think there are 16 levels to the sound (1 lowest, 16 highest), i can take it up to 10 and that is pretty good however i dont take it higher because i’m afraid of blowing the speakers.
What exactly do i need to know about speakers to figure out how many decibels they can put out w/o damaging them?
i am thinking that the stock radio i have is good so i dont need to replace that, but i want something louder. Since taking it to volume 10 is pretty good and it goes to 16 i am assuming that is enough, i just want to replace the speakers. Maybe i might want an amp too.
How much do a new set of speakers for a car cost? if i did need an amplifier, how much would that cost? would any rewiring (aside from installing the new speakers) be necessary?
I dont know if this made sense, im doing 3 things at once right now as i write this.
Synopsis: my stock stereo is good, and i think it can play alot louder than i currently do but i don’t play it that loud for fear of damaging the speakers. what rating system is used to determine how many decibels a speaker can put out? How much do good speakers cost? if i do need an amplifier for extra sound how much would one of those cost? do i need to do any extra rewiring if all i do is replace the speakers aside from putting the new ones where the old ones were (tear up the floorboards, stuff like that).
