Another radio replacement thread

Post by alexmoen » Mon Apr 20, 2015 7:04 pm

So, I've been kicking around the idea of swapping out the factory stereo on my '86 Aspy.

I never use the CB (though, I know it works, or at least receives) or the intercom (no idea if it works). I have checked the audio out of the system and it is severely lacking in both low and high frequency reproduction, compared to modern head units, and I would like to add both rear speakers and a powered subwoofer, and the factory system won't properly support those.

However, other than having a poor frequency range, it works very well, and the nostalgic part of me doesn't want to just throw it all away.

So, is there a market for an entire working Aspy audio system out there? Or is it basically junk, and should just be honorably retired?

TIA guys!

Post it on eBay. Someone out there has a use for it, guaranteed.
