there's a difference...

I bought I cheap ass Jensen deck from that xs cargo place for $79, so the volume is a little lower, but I gained some RCA Preouts so +small 40X2 amp +8"tubed sub= decent driving music for now. Enough to overcome the sunroof & 2windows effect anyways. My biggest complaint was the stock fader...only two signals going into the amp, and the amp just duplicated that for the rears

on the plus side i did find out what that middle button on the console is for (marking rubbed off years ago I guess ), my broken power antenna.
