    Renewed music interest.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm pretty new to car audio, but I've been really enjoying it here recently. I mainly listen to rock music with some instrumentals thrown in, but I'll listen to other stuff once in a while too. There is good music in all genres I think, just some you have to look (much) harder to find. Haha!

    I have a classic model Chevy truck and it all started a while back when my radio got stolen out of my truck. Previously, I had the radio installed by a professional with just the stock speakers being utilized. At the time, that was okay for me. It didn't sound too bad really, and I was just happy to listen to music in my vehicle. Well, many months after my radio was stolen, I was finally able to get a new one and with a little bit of help, I hooked it up myself. When I hooked it up, I noticed that one of the back speakers was out. That was just unacceptable; so began the quest to replace them.

    Because of how old my truck is, finding a replacement for the type of speakers it uses took a little trial and error. My lack of experience didn't help either, but you live and you learn right? So, after deciding that a OEM replacement wasn't sufficient, I ended up getting some aftermarket speakers. To get them to fit properly, I had to install a spacer so that the magnet had more room in the back. Wood worked perfect for this purpose. Once I got them installed, they sounded absolutely great! In fact, they sounded so great, that it made my dash speakers sound like complete crap.

    Well, long story short, I replaced my dash speakers as well, and now I think I have the bug. I'm thinking about getting an amp/sub/component setup going. Once I do that, I think I might be satisfied. Well, maybe... Anyway, I think I'll head on over to another part of the forums for some recommendations

    Welcome! Thats the way it started out for me, replaced HU because cd player quit working, then speakers, then an amp, then subs, etc, etc. Its a slippery slope the rest of the way, but a fun one.
    Post more detailed specs of your truck, your goals and budget, and several will chime in offering you different suggestions and ideas.
