Default it's about time I start a thread specifically about my car audio

2001 PT Cruiser car audio thread.





so it's been a really long time since I actually posted any updates about my car stereo system and honestly that's what I love doing the most in my vehicle's is that in the electronics so it's time to make a real update about this and usually I post on Chrysler minivan. Net because that's my favorite place to hang out but this is probably my second favorite place.

it's been a really long time mainly because I've never been able to get my PT Cruiser working as I've liked even from the factory so with all those problems dealing with the car audio has really been a second burner type I never really been motivated enough to really invest anything into it but since I drive it now daily hear some things that I've always wanted to do but I'm actually getting around to doing.





Radio



I have never liked the look of having that little oval - taken up by one of those aftermarket kids but then I realized many of those aftermarket kits well something better than others and after I found this wonderful inexpensive cheap and cheerful option I had to go with this because I purchase the stereo for less than $32 shipped to my door:


Its a great unit for the $32 that I paid for and admittedly it is the low in unit but it does everything that I wanted to do and the sound actually isn't all that bad however you really do need to add a fan or heatsink to the back of it if you're going to use it because it has a very minimum of heat sinking .




Amplifier

if you're familiar with budget gyms on YouTube you probably heard of the Dual amplifier that's been reviewed and in fact Walmart no longer carries it anymore cuz everybody bought it all so guess who has a copy of this amplifier ? AutoZone to the rescue!


the samples tested here:


off the top of my head even listening to it for the very limited time I've been listening to it without it being properly set up which I have not done with my SMB meter this amp is amazing.
