The Cheapest Way to Upgrade your Car Stereo
:: 7.1. My Recomendation

«« 7.0. Bass Blockers

I personally recommend the Non Polar 100Mfd/50Wv capacitor.

Check you local Radio Shack store


go to any place where they do radio installations and ask for a bass blocker.

If you really want to save money, just buy the capacitor itself from Radio Shack.

The ones they sell you at the car stereo place is simply a capacitor with a piece of wire on both end and inside a shrink tubing.

How do you think I know which ones to use?

I bought one for $15 and stripped it so I could find out what's behind door #1.

I started making my own; I charged my customers $15 a pair. They saved money and I made a few bucks.

I have tried different sizes but I find the 100Mfd/50Wv to work the best.

Some of them filter out too much of the midrange leaving only the high 'cone like' sound. That is a waste of a good speaker.
