I'v encountered a problem with a well sounding sing, it sounds crisp & clear in every monitor or commercial speakers i tried but not in the car or club system, the sound gets smaller, kinda sounds like a mono mix

any idea how to fix this?

It could just be an inherent problem in the environment. Mixing for a car stereo is a lot harder than for a pair of decent near field monitors.
I always mix first with the decent near field monitors, but I still like to hear the mix converted to an MP3 (you have to assume the worst! Laughing (but I still keep it at 320kb/s)) and then played in my very run of the mill type USB car stereo. It doesn't prove anything, but if you can't understand the vocal, or if you can't hear the hi-hats, well,... you've either got to re-mix it or improve the playback medium.
Bottom line is that it's all very subjective. You want it to sound good in the car, you mix it for the car.
Idea
There is also, of course, the possibility of phase problems, either in your studio or car setup, so you can ignore all the philosophical stuff at the start if you want. Wink Laughing
