Car Battery, RCAs, Speaker Wire, two POS 12's in a big *** ported box, and a CD player hooked up in your room

Add a component set to that too :-)

For $100, your choices are going to be pretty limited.

Wal-Mart probably has something that fits that budget. Don't expect too much in the way of bass response or clarity, though :)

What model number was your aiwa cause mine did the same thing, so i still use reciever but i had a single cd player and just used it, plugged in rcas and put it on video/aux mode when i want to play a cd

Go on ebay and get a used stereo receiver for less than $50. Then buy a decent pair of bookshelf speakers for around $50. Then you can hook up a portable CD player to it with RCA's and a Y adapter. This should sound better than any of those pathetic boom box type systems with $0.50 drivers and $2.00 amps.

A decent receiver

My model is the Cx-NaJ14 I got it about 4 years ago and really abuse the **** out of it and I also play it in video/aux mode from my PS2. I just want a new basic stereo nothing mindblowing since I preffer listenting to music while driving then when I'm home. One question which is better company for stereos Magnavox or RCA ?????

i'm just saying that those stupid watts numbers on bookshelf stereos do nothing other than to lure in innocent victims. my old shelf stereo was 240 watts supposedly...i put my old type s on it and nearly cooked the amp at 4 ohms.
