Review:

Overall, this book is a welcome oasis of knowledge and affordable car stereo solutions amidst a desert of info-barren hype in the car stereo magazines. And Mr. Rumreich's comprehensive description, explanation, and wide spectrum of solutions will enable you to have first-rate mobile sound with a modest budget. As an old car-stereo fanatic, I highly recommend this book.

From the Back Cover:

Build your own super sound system on wheels! Rap, reggae, rock, or Rachmaninoff whether you crave a window-rattling rolling boom box or the most faithful auto music reproduction, there's only one good way to get the car stereo you want: Build it yourself. Here's the only guide you need to cook up your ultimate vehicular audio feast. Written by a master of audio electronics, The Car Stereo Cookbook shows you how to plan your design, choose your components, install them optimally and save a lot of money! Unlike books that cover only specific systems, the Cookbookshows you how to customize. With the Cookbook, your system will fit your tastes, your budget, and your car or truck, whether it's a radical sport utility vehicle or your Dad'sold Chevy.

The book is clearly organized by project type from speakers, subwoofers, and amps to equalizers, bi-amping, and accessories so you can quickly find the information you need on all the ingredients your dream machine requires. Featuring guidance on using the right specialty tools and step-by-step instructions for more difficult procedures, The Car Stereo Cookbook puts you in the fast lane to the custom auto sound system that'll leave your friends' pathetic factory-made output choking in your dust.
