Congratulations Baker6621!

By the way, here is something to think about next for your wheels...A U2 license plate from get this U2licenseplate.com, http://pages.towson.edu/romans/u2/plates.htm

Take care and be safe tonight...by the way, there are many stereos to choose from, but I learned long ago that it is better to have clarity then loudness, but you can't go wrong with U2 playing!

Chris

Hey Congratulations!!!! But a word of advice: Be extra careful when you are driving and listening to U2 at the same time!!! There have been many times when I'm so wrapped up in the music that I've gone thru stop signs, exceeded the speed limit, etc, etc.

Happy Driving!!!

What a great day. It's beautiful. Thanks to everyone here for keeping me happy - and making time fly. Gotta test out those U2 cd's while driving!

Thanks!

P.S. Anyone know of a good car audio system to get? Thanks.
Congratulations!!!
When I started driving I didn't play any music, I didn't want any distractions but now U2 is always blasting on my car stereo.

i got my first car from my parents over christmas and got an mp3-cd player installed. it's a kenwood deck.

it sounds great and 1 cd will have about 150 songs or so, as long as you have a burner.

i have 6 speakers and some sort of amp(i think the speakers are just whatever dodge put in), but it's a fairly small cabin and sounds incredible.

Start with a good head unit first. I like Kenwood, Pioneer, and Alpine the best. And of course upgrade the speakers, same brands I just listed, and maybe add Sony if you can afford a bit more. If you want more clarity and power, go for an amp. Personally I was never a fan of having a subwoofer in the car, unless you really need the bass.
www.crutchfield.com is the best site for car audio

I, on the other hand, would recommend that you DO get a sub after you've purchased the items above (head, speakers, amp). Even high quality speakers aren't designed to reproduce the thump of a bass drum, or even the low notes of a bass guitar. I'm very glad I bought my sub. It adds a lot.

As far as crutchfield goes, be forewarned that their prices are not the best. They're usually 10-20 bucks more than you can find on some shady internet dealer. That being said, you get what you pay for. Crutchfield has the BEST customer service anywhere. Free returns, no questions asked, fast shipping, SMART people on the help lines, etc. I've found that it's worth it to pay a bit more. I buy a lot of stuff through them.

later,

Well that is jolly good news.

But just an enquirey to anyone who might know - wouldn't a topic such as this be better posting in the Lemonade Stand?

We have a perfectly good Lemonade Stand, but I'm wondering if some people haven't noticed it yet. Its a great place for general dicussion and they have so many different types of lemonade to choose from... Sprite... 7UP... The tradional stuff...

Oooooo I'm thirsty... I must go get some Lemonade...

Congratulations, I know how exciting and cool that feeling is. Be careful, don't rock out too much while you're driving. Forget it, I should talk, I do it too!

Holy moley... I've had my license for more years than you've been alive!

That's it Baker - CT just ain't big enough for both of us.

Congrats! And stop inadvertently reminding me of how old I am!
