Aftermarket indash CD skips to bass
Anybody else with larger then average stereos have a problem with their indash's skipping to bass? Im running an older Kenwood Excelon unit back from '98 or so, but if I turn the stereo up loud enough, the vibration will cause the cd player to skip, so I cant even turn the stereo up all the way. It even does it with the roof off the car. Oh well, guess its time for a new headunit. :smash:

I don't have probs in mine. probably, you have the EQ turned up too high on the bass. or the car frame is transferring the vibration to the headunit chassis.

Its either too rigidly mounted or not rigidly mounted enough.

The most common fix for this problem is a CD changer. The reason why is because that changers are better built for damping. But I also understand that this is an expensive option.

and I agree with Sreten.

also What type of Car is it and how do you have it mouted, ISO Mount (brackets screwed to the side of the radio) or cage mount (square cage in the dash and you slide the radio in)?

Its a EuroDin in the metal cage with an adaptor plastic face. its installed in a 5th generation chevrolet corvette. Anyway the unit is stuffed pretty solidly into the hole. Maybe my headunit just sux. Time to get a new one.

Yea it's a bout time to start shopping for a new head unit.
it's hard to but in a radio wrong in a vett. the generic chevy kit is pertty stable.

But look at it this way head units have come a long way sice '98.
built in X-overs

When you start shopping look for sattalite radio, you won't regret it.;)
Kenwood had the bestdeal on SAT radio right now
$50 tuner
$100 antenna
$300 head unit

IMHO I like Alpine the best. It's the little things they do that make the difference.

course you also could opt for the new "all in one" pioneer,00.html

it's even got a built in G-tech performance meter. :eek:
