Hi, I am very new to the whole sound system thing but all I know is that I want a good sounding stereo system and I am looking to gain some knowledge. Hopefully yall can help me out. I am planning on building my own system step by step. First I want to get a new Head Unit. Nothing too fancy for example the ones with the GPS or touch screen or anything. Then eventually I want to get new speakers, amplifier and a sub.
I keep on seeing this JBL stock system thing and this might be a dumb question but how do I find out if I have one or not. I honestly don't know if I have a JBL system in my truck. I have a 2008 Double cab Taco, stock HU with a 6 CD changer.
Also as far as a new Head Unit what do I need to look for. I saw somewhere that someone recommended that the CD signal noise be above 100 DB, 2V on the line outs and a low THD% ex under .1%
So far is this guy on the right track? Also what do you suggest in a good Head Unit. And what features or accessories have you seen to be helpful.
