amplifiers, head units, and speakers. For those on a tight budget, cheap car
audio is the way to go.

they carry. It's a sure bet that a $2000 system will sound better than a $50

your car, but compared side-by-side with an expensive sound system, it is likely
to sound disappointingly thin. So save yourself the aggravation and don't

to go. Major manufacturers have reasonable warranty terms and you can be

expensive systems, but for everyday doodling around the city, an inexpensive
audio system will do just fine.
