Which do you think is best?

My cuz insists that it is a "deck"
My parents insists that it is a "stereo"
I tell them constantly that it is a "head unit"

deck, what like a deck of cards.
stereo, like not mono
H/U is the proper terminology

deck I always think of a shaft mount tape player a stereo consists of an amp player and two speakers because if it is anymore or less then two speakers then it aint stereo, a headunit is a controller to the rest of your system, so it's a H-E-A-D-U-N-I-T

I usually say head unit.

When I'm speaking with my friends it's usually "deck".

does it matter? :) deck or head unit, both interchangeable, "stereo" usually refers to the whole system.

CD Player/MP3 Player or Head Unit would be the correct terminology.

a stereo consists of an amp player and two speakers because if it is anymore or less then two speakers then it aint stereo,

You're car has a stereo, and some have 4 speakers (two in front and two in back). There is still only two signals, a Left and a Right (stereo).....adding or subtracting speakers isn't going to change that.

Stereo is short for stereophonic, which is a sound reproduction system that consists of two or more separate channels.






So, can I be Captain Knowledge's sidekick........Intellect-boy :D
