Virtually every modern motor vehicle has the benefit of an audio system. Audio systems can take many forms. Almost every audio system has a radio. This was, in fact the only component of an audio system for many years. Now, in addition to AM and FM radio, audio systems consist of a cassette player (in older models) a CD player, Bluetooth integration and navigation systems.

The sounds that are generated by the various components of a vehicle’s entertainment system are transmitted by a set of speakers. These can be located in a variety of positions inside the car. The most popular locations are the sides of the doors and the dashboard. Dashboard speakers have been a feature of the audio system in motor vehicles for many years.

Dashboard speakers consist of air pistons that create differing amounts of air pressure at different frequencies through backward and forward motion. An amplifier then creates electrical impulses which reach a voice coil that is housed within the speaker.  This creates an electro-magnet that is attracted or repelled by a fixed magnet located at the bottom of each of the dashboard speakers. The voice coil is connected to the cone and creates sound by a backward and forward motion.

If dashboard speakers break or age, they can be easily replaced as there is a vast rang of dashboard speakers on the market.
