Video: Overhauling a Music Teacher's Audio System

Heads up!

Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.

When you're learning to play and appreciate music, it's important that you can hear it as well as possible. We overhauled a local music teacher's classroom audio system, taking it from a tired old shelf system to a sonic marvel the whole class could enjoy. New speakers, a CD player, an iPod dock, an amp, and power protection complete the package.

Hi. I'm Kevin White, and I teach music at Meriwether Lewis Elementary School here in Albemarle County. The music system that I had here at this school for many years was a good system, but it was kind of a low power. The fidelity was okay, but it really wasn't true to the experience of the music I wanted my children to hear at the school.

The system I have now from Crutchfield includes mounted speakers, an iPod dock, CD player, an integrated amp, and power protection. It has excellent fidelity. It's a wonderful sound. The bass sound is just very thick and rich. I think the kids really notice the difference. I did a little test with them and said "Which one's which?" and they all could tell the difference immediately. It really helps having a music system that re-creates the sound in the way it was intended to be. It's just really allowed the kids here, the students at the school, to have a much fuller and richer musical experience.

Please share your thoughts below.

    Can you please let us know what products you used for this setup? I am looking into a new setup for my music teacher and need to have an idea of what worked and how much it will cost.
