Good Sound

Ok, Hovarth is into music, has a truck, and is a moderator. So tell me what is a good system to have in my truck to listen to his sounds? Circuit city, Sound Depot, and everyone else is willing to sell me anything from $1200 to $2000 for a system FOR MY TRUCK? My range is Buddy Holly, The Bopper, Muddy Water, Matt Thorpe, Hendricks, and Crupa. How good are the CD players while moving on a dusty road? Can I get a changer with 100 cds? The one in the house is 500. Ideas, suggestions?

LOL! This is the BEST question I have *personally* viewed at Hotrodders!


Here's what I discovered and did in my ride, Thom:
Part 1 - The Right Speakers
Part2 - A Decent Stereo System
Part 3 - The Right Music!

wow

Now that is an answer worthy of my father. He built all of the speaker boxes in our house, into the walls. 50's
What is your opinion of the miniatures? Would they work in a truck? Is there no replacement for BASE weight? The unit you purchased from the TruckShop, does it have a CD version? And lastly, do your speakers get in the way of the fresh air vents? Figured you would be the one with great answers. Thanks.

Hey, Thom

I believe the mini's would work ... it's all a matter of matching your speakers to your stereo, as I explained in my link above (The Right Speakers). The thing I discovered was, more than 2 speakers and the sound gets muddy -- the cab is too small to have all that much sound bouncing around ... but then, that was determined before my interior was finished (I'll be doing that this Spring and Summer) and without proper sound-deadening, so it may be a false statement after all.

The unit I purchased (and all the units I looked at) offers a remote CD player, which I don't yet have. I'm playing cassettes. But I can plug a CD player into the back of the stereo if I want.

My truck doesn't have the fresh air vents, so I'll be recessing my speaker-boxes into the kick panels.

PS - I was just viewing your pics. What's that shot of the yellow Chevy dash? Is that yours??? NICE RIDE!!! But you should put all '55 chrome Chevy knobs in that dash and get rid of those terrible 80's picture-idiot-knobs - like I did:

I talked with a friend (neighbor) last night that works at Circuit City. I had made a color print out of your articule and showed it to him. He said that Polk makes a car speaker that is 3 inches 450 Watt / 220 RMS. He liked your containment for the speakers and recommended that I put as much Dynomat sound deadener in the truck as possible. He also feels that these trucks do not benefit from over powering or too many speakers. This whole thing reminds me of when my dad built a sound studio in the garage using egg crates. Very little money in the equipment but a lot of effort in making the area work. I had purchased a cheap stereo record player and boy did it sound great out there. Sort of forgot about that until now.

The dash is a friends car. He needed help with the electric and I offered to help. It turned out to be a great car. But you are right, I like the chrome also.

I posted a picture of the outside of his car. Hope you like it.

Cool. I'm glad to know I was on the right track. I tried all kinds of combinations with some cheap-o Radio Shack speakers and then settled on 2 Sony X-Plodes.
