Re: Retrosound Radio Question
Here is what my head unit looks like opening and closing:
I know what some of you are going to say. Why did I cut up my dash? Well, because my system has 4v RCA output reference. What does that mean? The higher the RCA output voltage, the better the sound transfers from the head unit to the amplifiers and that means better output to the subs. Not to mention, my head unit, when turned off, disappears making potential thieves go on to the next vehicle. Granted the 2 shaft radio doesn't look too enticing, but anyone who knows auto electronics and car audio will know what you have in your dash and an alarm IS NOT going to stop them. All they need to do is remove the front turn signal bulb from the socket, stick a scewdriver in the socket and BLAMO, no more car alarm. If your car alarm makes your turn signals flash when the alarm is triggered, then they can short out the alarm just by shorting out the turn signal socket. Just some food for thought for you guys who think you're safe because you have an alarm.
