Here is something i learned sort of the hard way and wasnt too happy but we all will. WHen someone tells u to get a cheap deck and everything will be fine dont listen to them. I bought a hundred dollar aiwa pos deck thinking it wuld sound the same as all the others. Every time i turned the ignition off the bass would thump and i always thought it was my amp so i got a new one and it did the same thing, so i got new rca cables and new ground and it still did it and i was stumped and 500 dollars in the hole... then i talked to a guy at good guys and he looked at my pos deck and said that was the problem. I invested in getting a deck with 4 volt pre amp outputs a bunch of other stuff i cant name off my head that the hundred dollar decks just dfont come with. I turn my car on and my subs hit 3 times as loud, my door speakers are so so so clear and everything is great, NO THUMP WHEN I TURN MY CAR OFF. Remember this when ur buying ur cheapo deck.

I was told when it comes to car stereo, you buy cheap, you will buy again.

for me, i dont care about the rattling... however, im way down on the second part.... thats why i still dont have my truck lifted... i need more things, but am just buying piece by piece... the spindles nad the brakelines are already in the garage... also i got new rotors, pads, tools and i still need a way to lift the rear and double check that the X rims will fit as well....
