Re: Got my new Truck Stereo Installed Yesterday :)
Yeah, i really hate car stereo shops.....
We had a stereo and speakers installed in our (now sold) 81 van, and had to take it back cause the sound was absolutely horrid!!
Well, they tried to blame it on old wires, and tried to 'sell' my parents on a re-wiring of the van. Well, that didnt go over too well, and they left. So me and my father fixed it in what had to be like 5 minutes! They just dont know how to wire speakers up, apparently. Somewhere along the line, they also got the idea that the van was wired with a positive ground, too! I dunno how they came to that conclusion, but that was the last time we ever had a stereo installed by them! (gee, and they went out of business a year or so later, too. I wonder why?)
And when i put a new head unit in my truck, i was lucky enough to find out that the crappy cd player that was installed before i bought it, was installed by some sort of genius who decided to butcher my wiring harness to do it! [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
Yeah, im never gonna have a stereo "professionally" installed, EVER!!!!!
