Publisher Comments:

Build your own super sound system on wheels! Rap, reggae, rock, or Rachmaninoff--whether you crave a window-rattling rolling boom box or the most faithful auto music reproduction, there's only one good way to get the car stereo you want: Build it yourself. Here's the only guide you need to cook up your ultimate vehicular audio feast. Written by a master of audio electronics, The Car Stereo Cookbook shows you how to plan your design, choose your components, install them optimally--and save a lot of money! Unlike books that cover only specific systems, the Cookbookshows you how to customize. With the Cookbook, your system will fit your tastes, your budget, and your car or truck, whether it's a radical sport utility vehicle or your Dad'sold Chevy.

The book is clearly organized by project type--from speakers, subwoofers, and amps to equalizers, bi-amping, and accessories--so you can quickly find the information you need on all the ingredients your dream machine requires. Featuring guidance on using the right specialty tools and step-by-step instructions for more difficult procedures, The Car Stereo Cookbook puts you in the fast lane to the custom auto sound system that'll leave your friends' pathetic factory-made output choking in your dust.

Synopsis:

The first edition of this book was written six years ago. Since then, there have been some significant developments in the area of car audio (and video). In addition, many of the products featured in the first edition are now obsolete. While the first edition of the book continues to sell, we have seen a bit of a slow-down at major accounts. This edition promises to be even more successful than the last.Car Stereo Cookbook, 2e is a completely revamped edition of a hugely successful title that continues to sell. This revised book will include new information on mobile video, satellite radio, mp3, wma, digital broadcast radio, and will eliminate the out-of-date products that are no longer pertinent.
