CD skips...HELP ME

Hey guys...

I am a new Jeep owner, and the Jeep came with a AM/FM stereo...I quickly made the move to CD and much to my dismay...the thing skips without fail and WAY to often.

I put a low end CD player in there...cause I didn't want it to get stolen...but the people who put it in are suggesting that I go with a much more expensive radio.

WILL IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

How have other Jeep owners fixed your CD needs.

Most of the less expensive head unit's do tend to skip alot. I put a Kenwood in my '90 YJ, don't remember what exact model, but I paid about$230 for it at Circuit City and I never had a problem with it skipping offroad or on road, except when it fell out of the dash , but that's another story. I don't think you need to spend $500 for something that $250 will do.

Go Alpine

Usually around $200 is the average price for a CD player that will give you playback without skipping. I know that Alpine has one of the best antiskip shock systems on the market. They use 4 ( one at each corner) oil filled sacs instead of springs or rubber. Plus its the best brand that you can buy. They have them starting around $199 at Circuit Citys.

I am not sure what it is called but there used to be a feature called "Read A-Head Memory" or something like that.
It allowed the CD Player to read a head and if a bump was hit you wouldn't hear the skip, because you would really be listening to the memory playback not directly to the CD.
Is that confusing , I used to see the spec on this feature but I am unable to locate anything now.
Look for it or something like it, and get the largest you can find, this will help a lot with the skip thing.

And yes, the lower priced models probably do not have anything and skip a lot more.

Good Luck,

Bigtone911,

How is the CD skipping thing going ?

Did you change it or just going to live with it?
