How does a mid-range work?

on January 18, 2024

In the world of car audio, mid range has been gaining popularity in recent years. This kind of audio system falls between low-cost and high-fidelity audio. Their popularity comes from the excellent price-quality ratio that these systems can offer.

In this article, we'll tell you everything you need to know about midrange audio systems, from the main components to the best brands. We'll also discuss the pros and cons of midrange audio systems so you can decide if one is right for your car. 


How are midrange speakers defined?

Midrange speakers are a form of speaker designed to provide a more focused frequency response than subwoofers. However, they can reproduce a wider range of frequencies than tweeters. This means that midrange speakers offer better sound quality than subwoofers. This is because they can reproduce sounds with greater detail and better definition.

Midrange speakers are also better suited for surround sound playback as they can reproduce a wide range of frequencies clearly. On the other hand, one of the great advantages of mid-range speakers is the price-quality ratio. A high range speaker is made of high quality materials for a perfect sound. 

If you are not a car audio professional or do not participate in competitions, it may be too high of an expense. However, if you like good sound, low-range speakers are not going to be satisfactory either. At this point, mid-range speakers are the perfect option for you.

These types of components are manufactured in such a way that they make the best use of the materials with which they are built, without affecting the price. In this way, mid-range sound systems are ideal for any average user, as well as for those who love high-fidelity sound, but who have a limited budget.

Differences between a low range and a mid range 

How to get good sound with mid-range speakers?

Mid range speakers are characterized by having a frequency range of approximately 100-5000 Hz. This means that they are capable of reproducing a wide range of sounds, from bass to treble. That is why they are ideal for audio systems that require balanced and versatile sound. 

Low range speakers, on the other hand, are characterized by having a frequency range of approximately 20-200 Hz. This means that they are mainly useful for reproducing bass sounds. These speakers are most common in audio systems dedicated to playing music with deep bass, such as hip-hop, reggae, or dub. However, their limited range of sounds makes them easily saturated. 

As you might expect, low range speakers are much cheaper than their counterparts. However, a combination of both types of speakers can create excellent quality sound without the investment that a high-range speaker system requires.

Boost the sound of your mid range with an amplifier

If you know the most important concepts of sound, it is not necessary to invest a large budget to achieve excellent sound. The secret of car audio is knowing how to combine the components and create a good set. This is achieved by incorporating power amplifiers, which increase the power of the sound produced by the bass. This allows it to be played at higher levels and with greater clarity. Power amplifiers also help improve the quality of higher frequencies, such as the mids and highs.

A good midrange set will also include some type of filter that will help isolate the different frequency ranges, so that each range sounds its best. All this may sound a bit complex, however, it is a matter of knowing in depth how car audio works.

With the help of an experienced professional, you can get great benefit from your mid-range audio set. Hiring experts will save you time and work, as well as giving you an incredible experience without having to buy high-quality components. 



Getting car audio equipment with excellent sound is not necessarily a luxury for a few. With skill and knowledge, you can have high fidelity sound from a mid range set.
