Re: Car Audio

Best Buy is a joke, there's a reason why they're going down the toilet.

Re: Car Audio

Also, if you get an aftermarket unit, get one of these:

Alpine KTP-445U "Power Pack" Upgrade any car radio to 45 watts RMS X 4 at Crutchfield.com

This is HUGE for sound quality. It's basically a small amp that will fit in your dash. I have a buddy who just did this and a head unit and his stock speakers sounded amazing.

i know this isn't the point you are making, but next time, buy another of the same, then return the one that doesn't work w the newer receipt.

never pay attention to that peak number. rms is the one that counts, the cde-133bt is 18w rms.

that power pack that malcolm referred should do that trick.

you can always install the receiver, see if you're happy w the sound, then add the power pack later, if you're not happy.

crutchfield has live online chat, give them a holler when you have a chance. i prefer online chats (in general) because i can go back and read anything that was said, instead of trying to remember every detail of a phone call.

also, make sure your stock speakers can handle 45w rms.

yeah, i like using windows media player, it's really easy.

put the cd in, open wmp, it will recognize the cd, just click rip*

*you can set up your preferences before you rip; mp3 as opposed to wma, bit rate, all that jazz.
