With so many brand choices, it can be confusing and frustrating trying to figure out which brand will work for you and meet the needs of your overall system goals. From time to time, I will be posting some information about a few of the brands that we have available at Down4Sound Shop to help you decide which brand may work for you.
In this post, I will discuss one brand that, for over 20 years, has been taking the car audio scene by storm. This brand has truly become one of the leaders in producing car audio equipment that packs the power, performance, and reliability that people look for in mobile audio.
Not only does this brand’s products perform both musically and in the SPL lanes, but they also look the part as well, which can be important to some. They are overbuilt to take the abuse of serious ground pouring, but sensitive enough to get your music sounding the way it was intended.
The brand I am speaking of in this post is DC Audio. Founded in 2006, DC Audio has made a name for themselves by offering the car audio community custom-made, hand-built, amplifiers and subwoofers that meet whatever goals you have in mind for your car audio system.
Did you know that Down4Sound Shop stocks more DC Audio than any other online retailer, today? It’s true. D4S wants to the be number one source for all of the major car audio brands, including DC Audio.
Let’s take a quick look at the D4S inventory of DC Audio, and give you a rundown of some of the products and their specs to help you choose which DC Audio product will work for you. I’m not going to get too specific with the technical details of each product, by I will, however, provide links that you can click in order to see the full specifications of each product on the Down4Sound Shop website.
