Hello I want to buy a new cd,mp3 player for my jeep but dont know which one?? I dont know anything about car cd player's. My wife can burn cd's in mp3 format to get all the songs I want in one cd.. Help me out.. thanks
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 just put in my sony explode cant remember which model off the top of my head ....something XX-400 and even with the factory speakers it sounds great. And it has 2 sets of rca's and (bus set too....thinkin maybe cd changer stuff) Also has an aux input in the front of the head unit and a detachable face. awesome buy for about $140 IMO
I prefer pioneer equipment. I have i think its like D-6800 or summin. It has video graphics and i can control my ipod through the cd player. I would recommend if you want to get a descent cd player you should look into a tuffy stereo console. This allows you to buy a good cd player and not worry about it being stolen, also a nice console. Ebay will help you save lots of money also. Good luck.
i have a sony xplod cd/mp3/cd-r/cd-rw cd player, great cd player and it adds an extra kick to my sound. just replaced my speakers all to alpine and it sounds great. the faceplace detatches so you can hide it or bring it with you place so nobodyh steals it, got it from best buy at about 165$
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
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...
