Do you have a car that you absolutely love but find the safety features lacking? Do you spend a lot of time on the highway and wish you could have extra assistance for blind-spot monitoring during lane changes? Blind spots are large areas around a vehicle where you cannot safely observe with mirrors or their eyes. Depending on the make and model of the car, the blind spot can be more significant. A blind spot car camera installation can help compensate for these areas of your vehicle. At Speed of Sound, we’re committed to solving safety issues with quality and professional aftermarket solutions.
No one ever expects to get in a car accident, especially if it’s one caught in your blind spot! Blindspot collisions are one of the most common types of crashes. The National Highway Safety Administration statistics reported over 800,000 collisions due to blind spots each year. Does that number surprise you?
Here at Speed of Sound, we only provide quality products and car camera installations to our customers. The Brandmotion Radar Blind Spot monitoring and detection system is an aftermarket solution that performs just like the systems found on newer vehicles. The system can be installed on any car with plastic fascias. In other words, any plastic bumper. But, it cannot be installed on metal pickup truck bumpers. As a result, you’ll get an OEM-like fit and performance.
Unlike other aftermarket monitoring systems, Brandmotion’s products offer accurate cross-traffic detection. Therefore, the car camera installation will eliminate up to 95% of false triggers common in other detection systems. The Radar Blind Spot system is available for all car models 2007 or newer. Professional installation is required.
Here at Speed of Sound, we’ve built our reputation by providing only the best technology at the fairest prices. With decades of experience, you can have peace of mind that you’re receiving the very best of everything.
Let’s help you enhance the capabilities of your vehicle with a new blind-spot monitoring car camera installation. Visit our website or give us a call today at 603.766.6666 for more information.
Think your ride could be amped up with a great audio system? Want to make your commute a little more enjoyable? There are a few components that go into making a car audio system sound better. If your stock stereo isn’t cutting it, Speed of Sound provides the ultimate customer experience to revamp your vehicle. Here’s an overview of the three basics of a car audio system.
This device is probably what you imagine when you think car audio system. The head unit is commonly referred to as the radio or stereo! While that’s technically correct, the head unit is a tiny box with lots of different functions. These days, the head unit typically comes with a CD player, Bluetooth audio, control for media players, and an AM and FM radio. The head unit is the place where you can adjust tone like bass or treble to allow the music to match your taste.
The amplifier is responsible for enhancing your car’s audio signal strength. To move the sound to the speakers, an amplifier increases the power of the audio signal. This is a two-stage process. The preamp is usually something already inside the head unit. It takes the audio signal data from the source and prepares it for the second stage. A stock car usually doesn’t have a separate power amplifier outside of the head unit. A second power amplifier is added to boost the pre-amplifier sound for better quality, depending on the setup.
Time for the fun part! The speakers take the amplified sound signals and converts them into mechanical energy. The vibration of the speaker cone creates the sounds that we want to hear! To get the most accurate range of sound, different types of speakers are recommended. Most cars come with a “full range” sound setup that can’t necessarily produce sounds as accurately as a dedicated speaker can. Subwoofers are large speakers that can reproduce low-frequency and bass sound well. There are also midrange drivers for well, mid-range frequencies. Lastly, tweeters are used for high-range frequencies!
If you’re thinking about upgrading your vehicle’s audio system, Speed of Sound has your back. With an ear for high-quality sound and equipment, we’re here to help you design a stereo sound system that enhances your listening experience without breaking the budget!

With the holiday fast approaching, shopping for many is complete. However, for others, you may find yourself struggling to locate the perfect gift for that someone who has everything. Lucky you for, you’ve stumbled across Speed of Sound. From the perfect motorcycle sound system to remote starters, we have the solution. Here is a look at a few gifts sure to be the perfect match for that hard to please person (we all have one)!
Living in New England, having a remote starter comes in handy no matter what season you’re in. With the brisk winter upon us, starting your car ahead of time is always a welcome luxury. Beyond jumping into a warm car, you’ll also be able to drive away sooner with snow and ice already melting from your frozen windshield. Likewise, having a cool car during the steamy hot days of summer is always nice too!
Sure, many of us have access to various navigation systems with our phones. However, a system built into your vehicle proves beneficial in several ways. First and foremost, safety comes into play. Without having to hold, look at, or play with finicking volume issues, removing your cell phone from the equation of driving is always the best bet.
If there’s a motorcycle enthusiast in your life, they’re probably missing the days of riding. While the bike is stowed away for the season, get those riders excited with the gift of sound! At Speed of Sound, we offer premium options for motorcycle sound system solutions.
Or, perhaps, you have a boating enthusiast in your life. While many boats are equipped with stock stereo systems, they often prove less than desirable in sound quality. Give them something to look forward to next summer with the ultimate sound experience while they hit the water for the day!
No matter who it is, Speed of Sound has the perfect gift for that hard to buy for person. Whether it’s a motorcycle sound system or remote starter, our team is here to help! Give us a call today for more information on how we can help complete that holiday shopping list!
