Component speakers are referred to as “separates.” They’re the less common of these two types of car-speaker systems, yet many audiophiles use them to deliver a well-balanced sound performance.
Component speakers come with separate speaker parts, each containing a single driver. This means each piece is built to produce one frequency range: either low, mid-ranges, or highs. This is why component speakers offer more versatility.
Component speakers come with two tweeters, two woofers, and two external crossovers. Each is installed separately, yet they work in unison to create a more balanced sound equalization inside the car.
In addition to these parts of the speaker, you may need an equalizer, an amplifier, or one mechanism that can simultaneously do both jobs. This is a great option if you want your separate speakers to sound more harmonious and better attuned as they work as one.
