Car Audio suggestions
« on: June 08, 2021, 06:20:52 PM »
Hi All

I'm looking for suggestions / photo's of car audio head units...

I have my 1979 T/A which i want to install an aftermarket audio system into, however i want to steer away from the Custom Auto retro looking stereo... i currently have one in my Corevette and although it works well it is not very user friendly.

I'm going to go for a modern radio, i even though about a flip out unit however I am not sure if it will be able to flip out given the location of the head unit.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Bill

Safe to assume your radio hole is already cut?

Yes, i probably should have stated that... It is a single din size.

Should have plenty of options then depending on what you’re looking for. My radio hole isn’t cut so I opted for adding a Bluetooth enabled amp after the radio and console 8 track feeding 4 modern speakers. I can use either the radio or 8 track player or switch to Bluetooth and stream from my phone and control via a wired remote I hid in the ashtray. Not sure if that would suit you best though if you’re looking for a non factory radio option. There are plenty of aftermarket units that offer Bluetooth

Go nuts, but look for one that compliments the dash or interior trim, many look gaudy and out of place. A simple black cd player with silver or chrome trim isn't always easy to find.
