Each stereo system has an internal Amplifier. if you move the volume knob and only get a very tiny difference in volume, then you internal amp is shot.

How to sound proof/increase the qualitly of the music in your car.

Most Car/Audio enthusiast have this problem: how to keep you music in your car while keeping the road noises out. And although it may seem like a complex problem, there are a few simple steps you can take to make your music sound better while keeping more of it in the car.

Now before we get started, I just want to say that every car is different. Each car will have different trouble spots that require different methods of treatment. Some of the accessories that i suggest can be expensive and alternatives that i talk about can be used for smaller price tag.

First, let us talk about sound quality. How would you define the quality of your sound? Most cars will have a standard speaker set that are made of low quality material that tends to distort at high powers. My first suggestion would be to replace your factory speakers. New sets of speakers can start at around $50 at and will greatly increase the sound quality of your car. Next, if you have basic upgrade speakers and use them in conjunction with a sub and amp, you may find that your cabin speakers may distort when the volume gets loud. You sub will sound great because it is designed to handle the power, but your cabin speakers may not have been. If you find they are distorting sound, try adding a pair of Bass Blockers. They sell for about $20 per pair. Make sure you find ones that match your speaker size as to provide the perfect bass cut off for best sound. If you want to start throwing out the big bucks and really start pumping the volume, invest in a nice head unit(CD player) and equalizer. A good head unit will have every thing you need to play great music. It will send the sounds to the right speakers so to limit distortion, etc. An equalizer will allow you to create the perfect sound for your taste by allowing you to adjust the decibel slopes for different frequencies.

Second, lets talk about vibrations. One of the worst things to have happen is to invest a large amount of hard earned money into a killer system, then when it is installed, the car rattles like no tomorrow and as a result all of the music is distorted. In cases like this, sound proofing material like Dynamat may be used. Dynamat is a thin rubber like material that bonds to the metal surfaces in your car so that they will not resonate/vibrate. Sound proofing the entire car with Dynamat would end nearly every vibration problem you may have. The only problem is that Dynamat cost on average $10 per square foot or $100 per 10 square feet. I would recommend using a different material. I used a roofing material call Quick Roof which was designed to seal holes in roofs. However, it does a comparable job to Dynamat and only cost about $15 per 10 square feet. That's $75 less than Dynamat. If you decide to sound proof your car, key starting places would be the doors and trunk. If you still have problems after this, try and seek them out by turning up you volume and standing out side of the car. To install Dynamat or Quick Roof, take off all panels until you see the bare metal of the car frame. Measure out the amount of material you will need, then cut peel and stick. Its that simple.

For Car/Audio Enthusiasts, sound quality is a key part in their everyday ride. You can invest hundreds of dollars into a nice system and not have perfect quality. If you have trouble with quality in your car, try some of the tips above. And although every part may not help out in your car, some parts might. Just remember what your goal is and remember that good sound quality is in your reach. Cheers to sick audio system. BrownyMan

I bought a used Luxman Stereo Receiver r113 and now my one Cerwin Vega speaker is crackling and distorted after 10 minutes of playing for the first time

As it's a stereo receiver and you specify one CV speaker, hook the speaker to the other side of the receiver and see if it still has the same problem. If so, hook it to any other audio source you may have. If it has a problem on only one side of the receiver, the receiver has a blown channel. If the speaker distorts on both sides of the receiver and on a separate audio source, the speaker is blown.

2.2 4 cylander wont start unless i floor the gas pedal and leave it there while cranking the motor forever. slowly it gathers itself and starts but sounds very distorted. take off and starts to run...

You can check to see if it is the catalyst by having an exhaust shop do a back-pressure test or you can unbolt the catalyst pipe before you start the car to see if that fixes the issue. This problem can also be caused by low fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure is caused by a clogged in-tank strainer, clogged fuel filter, or a weak fuel pump. If the pressure is low the car would be running lean, which can also cause the engine to run hot. Another thing that can cause this problem is a weak ignition system, either from leaking spark plugs, carbon tracking on the distributor, or worn/improperly gapped spark plugs.

XM Radio in 2008 Hyundai Sonata sounds bad

Same problem here. I repeatedly complained to XM but got no reply. I listen to XM in 2009 Sonata and it was just as bad.

XM is better than AM. Much worse than FM.
