Stereo goodness

So, after a new head unit and having to re-wire the *REAR* speakers as well, the car stereo sounds *NICE*, and the iPod can be connected directly to the aux input. I can also get a tool that lets me use the controls on the steering wheel, but I think I’ll wait for a bit.

in the mean time, i was riding home with some *FAT* tunes again. Next spring, Bass, but for now, this will be just fine.

Now, if only the sun would come back out. Who wants to go for a ride? *grin*

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Where’d you get all this rewiring done? I’ve been thinking that I’d really like an Aux input in my car for the iRiver, but I haven’t so far wanted to go the trouble of wiring it up myself.

    If you already ahve a head unit that has an Aux line, it’s really not that bad – just connecting the apropriate cable to the back of the unit.

    However, if you need theo whole system re-done, Iv’e had good luck with both Car Tunes in Cary and Best Buy at Crossroads. i think I’ll go to Car Tunes since they were cooler than the guys at BB.

    But how do you like the blue glow?

  4. alchemist says:

    The blue glow is cool. I still ahve to re-do my radio pre-sets, but it’s worth it.

    now all I need is iceLink for Panasonic…

    so, even if i do get floaters for my station wagon, i will still be nowhere near so cool as you ;).

    i jest, what i really want is spinning hubcaps. can you even imagine a gold station wagon with spinning hubcaps? i think it could cause brain popping.

  6. andyhat says:

    I still have the stock Honda head unit, which, as far as I know, has nothing resembling aux input. So there’ll be at least a little work to get it right, but I’ll have to give Car Tunes a try some day.

  7. alchemist says:

    You can always use an FM Modulator, but the sound quality won’t be as good. but it’s an option….

    Though if you’re still using the stock head unit you won’t have a compalint about an iTrip at all.

    iTrip is cool, except he’s not using an iPod….

  10. alchemist says:

    Maybe I should get those for the Kia Minivan. Pimp that ride *UP* for R and the kids.

  11. andyhat says:

    Yep, I’ve got one of those (from Belkin, I believe). It does work, but the sound quality leaves much to be desired. Plus, when driving long distances, you have to keep fiddling with the channel to use to find a clear enough one.
