Hi,

Sooo, I bought a car and let's just say I got a few weird extra body kit things..

Yes don't worry I know the body kit ***** and is being sold on ebay. The past owner had bad taste. But he also left this in the car:

Now I'm left wondering what in the hell I'm going to do with that. I'm not really an audio fanatic so I can take it out and sell it, or keep it in and build a proper box for it out of fiberglass. However, I have no idea about what kind of stereo I should be using for that thing.

What's a CHEAP stereo (double din preferred) that has enough juice to power that thing?

Thanks in advance!!

Meh it's tacky as hell. I wouldn't even bother keeping the subs. I'd sell the system to some local idiot telling him the holes in the box ventilate the subs and add DEEBEEZ!!!
Then go with a nice single 15 setup possibly? Or if you're not into audio that much like you said, just get a nice set of component speakers and look around for a 2din deck.
Just wondering, why are you set on a 2din deck?

Thanks for the reply, I think I'll probably just sell the thing on craigslist (Or here if anyone likes powder blue goofy Japanese speakers)

I like the 2din because the last stereo was taken out, so there's a 2din gaping hole in the dash that I'd like to fill with something. Haha.

Any particular recommendation on a good but cheap deck? Something under 75$ is ideal for me, like I said I'm not all that into audio, my money goes direct from my wallet into the engine so..

Nope it's an RX-7 FD3S Twin Turbo

It looks like an RX-7

And the question about the deck, it would be hard to find a nice deck, even online, for that little amount of cash. I just saw on here in the classifieds, some guy is selling his 1 din Kenwood, 2.5v preouts, for well under $100. It's 1 din, but hey it'll be hard to find a quality deck for under $100.

Would you recommend / warn against some of the units available on ebay?

Is 160W strong enough to get decent sound? I only need to be able to play mp3's I burned myself onto cdrw's.
