crutchfield.com is your best friend if you're not familiar with car stereos. It's expensive, but it's also the best one-stop shop for these types of things.

If you're looking to save some money, shop elsewhere. You may also want to try the audio and electronics forum. There's a lot of people there who are much smarter than I am.

just find the cheapest one that plays mp3's and go with that. Stereos get stolen too easy out of jeeps, so just get something cheap on sale. Makes you feel a lot better when your 50$ cd player gets stolen, then if your 300$ deck gets stolen

I bought a Sony flip down detachable face MP3, WMA, WAV CD player for $130 at Circuit City - not to mention the 6x9s I picked up for $30 off!

I don't have any complaints, by the way.

I found a cheap cassette player for $35 at Walmart and use it. It has an Aux input and I plug my MP3 player to it while on the road. No one wants to steal my cheap radio!!!

I prefer pioneer equipment. I have i think its like D-6800 or summin. It has video graphics and i can control my ipod through the cd player. I would recommend if you want to get a descent cd player you should look into a tuffy stereo console. This allows you to buy a good cd player and not worry about it being stolen, also a nice console. Ebay will help you save lots of money also. Good luck.

i have a sony xplod cd/mp3/cd-r/cd-rw cd player, great cd player and it adds an extra kick to my sound. just replaced my speakers all to alpine and it sounds great. the faceplace detatches so you can hide it or bring it with you place so nobodyh steals it, got it from best buy at about 165$

if i could go back and do it over again, i would have gotten a marine cd-player. now my nice shiny cd player does not work. well...it plays the mp3 cd that is in it (around 400 tracks), but it wont eject it, switch to radio, switch between songs , anything. all i can move is the volume.



and 6x9's are definitely a great investment!

i have mine on the rear wheel wells.

Here's the lowdown on this subject as I see it-
You want the cheapest CD player that meets the following criteria:
1. Detatchable face- jeeps are easy to steal from
2. Plays mp3 disks- as to carry as few cd's as possible because of said reason above.
3. Parametric EQ- Lets you customize your sound to be FAR beyond the scope of the treble/bass setup by being able to select the freq and curve of your high/mid/low

Pioneer makes CD players that will do this for under $150

As far as brand goes I say alpine... great stuff......

go ahead and invest in a locking console for it. protects from weather and theivery!

When I do my stereo, it's going to be a marine waterproof unit inside a locking console. Jensen makes quite a few boat stereos. To me, sound quality is almost irrelevant; I just want something that will produce some form of audio signal whilst submerged in mud. There will be better things to look at than a multi-color band analyzer on the trail.

BTW...Get something with a built in high pass filter. you can play cheap speakers loud when you are not sending them a buch of bass. My 4x6 component set will run you out of the jeep with the crossover set at 160 hz...
