premium sound


On the left we show what a speakers look like in a new vehicle with a premium factory audio system. These “premium” speakers are only obtainable by purchasing the upgrade packages that include them, which often adds over $3,000 to the cost of a new vehicle! Contrary to their name, these audio systems are by no means even close to premium. Built using extremely cheap parts such as untreated paper cones and cloth surrounds, these speakers are very sensitive to moisture, tearing, and deterioration.

On the right we show what a baseline aftermarket speaker from DD Audio looks like. Built using quality parts like heavy duty, yet lightweight, coated cones and compressed rubber surrounds, these speakers are built to sound amazing and last a very, very long time for a fraction of the cost!

Much better for much less.
