    "new" car

    well, I'm getting a '97 Honda civic LX for 1000$ (the price to ship it from CA to NY, It was my grandmother's car) It has 23,000 miles on it, and is in as near mint condition as an 11 year old car can be.

    So, I'm wondering if anyone has much experiance with in car audio, seeing as I'm using some of the money I'm saving to get some new speakers and audio system (it doesn't have a cd player, let alone hookups for an ipod). I need suggestions on brand, what to look for in the speakers/cd player, and also a basic walkthrough on how to install them.

    any other nice addon ideas would also be appreciated, as long as they are easy or you can walk me through how to do them

    hum, as for the ipod hook up i would go with a denon, i got one for 25 bucks at a best buy last Christmas, not sure how much they are when there not on sale.

    for speakers, jackhammers would be awesome, but ofc you probably dont have that much money, lol, it depends on what kind of music you listen to and if there is any noise pollution laws in your area. ny doest have any i believe, which means if you have enough power to output 120 decibels, you legally can. as for speaker brands, bose, jbl or alpine are good, but is on the expensive side.
    if you want good speakers, go to a shop that specializes in audio equipment, like a dj store. you can also get some decent quality cheap car cd player at specialty stores.

    hope this helps
    When in doubt, empty the magazine, They dont pay you to bring home bullets

    ~18 mpg, which isn't at all bad for a car that old.

    could be better if I paid more attention to my driving... but who doesn't like to go fast??

    I have a Ford F-150 truck while were on the topic of cars.

    I want a Jeep with a nice engine, unfortunally money-wise... They are practically giving away trucks, so that's what I bought.

    Back to subject, google for a shop in your area, the mechanic there can tell you better than I.
