Most dealers indicate the power rating of their standard factory car stereos to be 200w. However, this is quite misleading because there are differences between peak and RMS wattage. Usually, this amount of power is too little to overwhelm road noise unless theres a shrill.
What is a good wattage for a car stereo?
If youre using your cars factory stereo — 50 to 200 watts RMS of power for the bass will do nicely. An aftermarket receiver — you might want 200 to 300 watts RMS of power for your sub. Amplified speakers with around 50 watts RMS per channel — plan on 250 to 500 watts RMS for bass.
Does higher wattage mean stronger motor?
The wattage rating is usually (read the manufacturers specs very carefully) the measure of how much power the motor can draw. It doesnt tell you anything more than that. Wattage does not tell you whether the motor is efficient at converting the input electrical energy into output mechanical energy.
What happens if PSU wattage is too high?
There is no truth to the myth that a large wattage power supply will force too much power into your devices causing overheating and burnout. The power supply will only provide the needed wattage. For example, a device that needs 50 watts will only get 50 watts from a 250 watt supply, not the entire 250 watts.
