Re: [DML] New stereo system

Sorry man, but you will *have* to either cut the face plate, or buy the  DMCH 
upgrade.  There is simply *no* way around this, unless you wanna opt  for 
another tape deck.
Amplifier? - YES
Woofer? - Maybe.  Depends on how much bass you want.  If you  listen to a lot 
of rap and the like, this is obviously a must.  Where do  you plan to mount 
this sub?  DMCH / DMCF's upgrade is about $1,000 or so,  and they really give 
you the works!  My only gripe with this setup is that  you lose the driver-side 
lockbox for the 8" sub.  Some people remove the  spare tire and drop in big 
subs in there.  I personally don't recommend  this setup, only because I've had 
to use my spare tire before!
I have four 5.25" speakers, two in the footwells, two on the  rear-shelf.  
The deck is a Sony MP3 CD player... I forget the model number,  but it cost 
about $120.  52 x 4 peak, around 20 ~ 22 RMS.  In my  experience, this has been a 
real lousy setup.  The deck was really worth  the $120, and the sound is good 
too... up until around 55 mph.  I'm  thinking an amplifier may solve this 
problem, but I haven't decided anything  quite yet.  I may go 6x9s in the rear 
shelf, and tweeters in the front dash  (where the old 3s were).  Subwoofer in the 
trunk, alongside an amp or  two.  But I digress.
If you really like the sound of your home stereo set, you're going to have  
to spend some real money to copy that sound over to your DeLorean (you can 
quite  easily run up your $1k budget).  If you're really a nutball like I am, you  
may also take a few avenues to reduce the level of sound the DeLorean itself  
produces (wind noise, engine noise, etc etc). Dynamat (it is Dynamat, right?) 
is  a popular choice.  And there's always new seals and what not.
Hope this helps.
