It may be a bit early to realistically think Spring is just around the corner, considering we are still buried in multiple feet of snow, but it will eventually arrive! And with that will come all the pursuits of warmer weather, of which car audio is definitely a part.

The world of consumer entertainment technology is an ever-changing and rapidly advancing field. No sooner than you buy your newest smartphone is there a better version of it available. You just finish setting up your cutting-edge home theater system, only to see the ‘updated’ version being advertised. That Blu Ray player that has barely a few movies played through it has now evolved to feature streaming capabilities. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all of the ‘latest and greatest’ marketing, but some people seem to be on top of the trend at all times.

By the time you’ve selected and installed your new system, there is already a better amplifier, or a more efficient subwoofer, or a head unit with more advanced features available. While some vehicle owners are quite satisfied with the stock factory stereo that came installed at the point of purchase, for others it’s a hobby in need of perpetual amendment and improvement. And there is certainly no lack of upgrades, as new and exciting products hit the store shelves with predictable regularity.
With the arrival of Spring, everyone is feeling that urge to get out of the house! After being snow and ice-bound for months thanks to our Minnesota weather, it’s time to feel warmth and sunshine and put away our snow shovels. With the new season come various activities that we can enjoy without being bundled up in a winter parka. Gardening, biking, fishing, golfing, working on outdoor projects, heading out to the range, boating or perhaps just taking a drive through the countryside with your windows open and the tunes rocking! Whatever the calling, we are just as excited about being done with winter as you are!
Radio broadcasting began in 1920s, and became an instant sensation. People could listen to voice and music transmitted over the air – the stuff of science fiction at that time! Vacuum tube radio receivers were popping up in people’s homes everywhere, and it would not be uncommon for friends, family and neighbors to gather at the home of a person who had one of these amazing new listening machines to revel in this amazing technology. Soon enough, this innovation became mobile, and in the 1930s, we had the first car radios.
