and a barely useful 1.5 farad cap, i can't even remember what brand it is. it reduces the dim of the headlights by a slightly noticeable amount
i named the wrong receiver. i also looked and saw that my cap is only a 1.2 farad, it's made by american legacy (a brand i have never heard of)

alpine cda-7998 - i remember i also bought it when it was $800, then crutchfield cut it down to $400 w the free kit, harness, and shipping. i pulled the trigger

Re: Car Audio

I did in a previous car. It's well worth it even without a car audio system...it smoothed out my idle and probably helped extend the life of the alternator.

Re: Car Audio

Back in the 80's I knew evrything there was about each brand but that's when I sold and installed them. I had a blaupunkt system which would blow the doors off with one of these wild floor mounted EQ"S. Alpine was also big in the 80's. I wouldn't know where to start now days.

Re: Car Audio

it's funny, since i moved here, and i don't have many tools at all, i enlist the help of my gf's brother. he is a very experienced mechanic, he always looks at me like "wtf?". especially in regards to the fact that i have no tools, and i hadn't changed my own oil until this year.

i would always find dealerships offering an oil change for under $5. didn't have a decent jack, didn't have access to a pit, and oil is expensive. he has a pit in his driveway, it's really nice.

anyways, i'll definitely be using his help w this project. sanding, soldering, and wiring galore.

Most of the stuff now days you just buy a wiring harness for your car and everything else plugs in.

Best ever.

I bought some speakers to upgrade the stockers in the car I bought last year and they threw in free factory adapters. No wiring for me, just plug them in.

Once I bought a stereo and they gave me a free Skil cordless drill that I still use all of the time.

If you need to call with a question, they're there and speak English.

Them and Newegg.com are my two favorite companies to deal with.
