Door speakers are a motor component that deliver the sound from the vehicle’s entertainment system directly to the side of the vehicle.
There are two basic type of car speaker. These are known as component and full range speakers. How these speakers differ depends on the extent to which drivers are employed. A speaker’s driver is one of its principal components and is the means by which electrical frequencies produced by the vehicle’s amplifier are converted to sound.
Full Range Speakers: This is the more frequently used type of car audio speaker. They are built into many audio systems at the point of manufacture. However, because they have only one single driver, sound of all frequencies emanate from the same location. This has the effect of reducing the overall quality of the sound they produce, especially at the higher and lower ranges.
Component Speakers: In a component speaker system each individual speaker is able to use its own driver. This means that the sound delivered to individual locations in the vehicle, including through the door speakers, is of the highest quality and clarity.
Whichever version of these two speaker systems is present, the quality of sound in a vehicle’s audio system has improved considerably over the years and the choice of speakers available on the market is now almost endless.
