Default Who knows about car steros?

Mine has been getting quieter laterly, like i keep having to turn it up louder to hear it. Today i got in the car and had to turn it up almost all the way to hear it at all, both cd and radio. Later i got back in the car it was working again, just quiet. It's nothing fancy just a sony.
Is it about to die?

You probably just used up the units life span. I'm sure they make them to break... if they didn't then no one would buy new ones.

I don't even listen to much rap/hiphop. most of the new stuff is garbage.
But i figured it was going out on me. Just thought i'd see if this was a common problem with some sort of easy fix

yours have a reset behind the faceplate? my brother had a sony in his grand am that did that. kept getting quiet to the point it wouldn't even play. there was a reset button behind the faceplate (removable faceplate) which we reset and it worked fine after that. but I'm no expert on sound systems.

I know i do. When it started getting quiet I was pissed for about 3 seconds, then i was like oooo, new stereo time
We'll see though. I need some torco and I just ordered headers and uppipe. So the stereo might have to wait a while.

if you are on a budget, but want a good radio, i have a recommendation...

i know the company has a "cheap" reputation.. but a lot of their products are actually pretty damn nice.. its the pioneer 4900. It retails for around 160-180.. I personally have it in my WRX and LOVE it. it makes the stock speakers sound pretty good, and it gets LOUD. The screen is tight looking, shows u the artist and song title and fun stuff like that.. its got a aux input as well, so on road trips i hook my computer directly up to it for my mp3 archive =) Sounds EXCELLENT!
