:: 7.0. Bass Blockers

«« 6.13. Car Stereo UPGRADE TIP # 7

A bass blocker is a type of capacitor that filters the low frequency out of the signal going to the speakers.

A speaker sounds distorted at high volume not because ittoo cheap nor is it not powerful enough but rather because it cannot handle low frequency levels (bass).

That is seldom the biggest problem with your factory speakers. Since they are made of cheap materials, they are not flexible enough to give you a good bass response


By adding a bass blocker to each speaker, it will play louder and a lot clearer. That's exactly what you need to do.

By filtering out the bass, you get a



and longer lasting speaker.

This is very important for your low budget stereo system.

TIP>> The capacitor (Bass Blocker), should be installed on the "+" side of each speaker
