These days, car audio speakers and car stereo installations are nothing without that extra accessory. With such a competitive marketplace, many speakers add all the bells and whistles possible to make their product stand out from the crowd. Whether it be unique designs or alluring lighting, car speakers are always being upgraded to meet the demands of the time.
From the cassette players of the ’80s and ’90s to the CD drives of the noughties, a car music system is one of the best indicators of technological advances. In part, this is because they have to adapt rapidly adapt to changes in car engineering and changing driving laws.
One such advance which has been seen more commonly in the modern era is the Bluetooth connected speakers and stereos.
What is a Bluetooth speaker?
Bluetooth speakers utilise radio technology to wirelessly connect audio devices. Speakers link up your phone and your car music system using short wave radio signals. Unlike WiFi, Bluetooth technology is a more personal system, usually linking one device to another through short wave signals.

Bluetooth speakers have become widely available in car audio shops due to their popularity as a safer alternative to using your phone whilst driving.
