Re: Silverado Speakers? - Guitar Focus
Hate to say it but the amp section in your Delco head unit is the source of your distortion. As you turn it up the tiny amp section reaches its limits and begins to clip giving the distortion that you want to get rid of. You have two simple options on how to get rid of the distortion, and neither invlove replacing your speakers. Option 1 is to replace the head unit with and aftermarket one that has a decent amp section in it. That will get you more volume before clipping and distortion. The other and IMHO better option is to get a small amp to take the signal from your stock HU and amplify it to your stock speakers. Benefits are maintaining stock appearance (theft deterrance) and better amplification. Even HU's with good amp sections are not able to keep up with a dedicated amp, even an inexpensive one. You won't need much power, maybe 25 watts per channel RMS. If you decide to upgrade your speakers later, you already have an amp to take proper advantage of the added sound quality of the new speakers.
