The first edition of this book was written six years ago. Since then, there have been some significant developments in the area of car audio (and video). In addition, many of the products featured in the first edition are now obsolete. While the first edition of the book continues to sell, we have seen a bit of a slow-down at major accounts. This edition promises to be even more successful than the last.Car Stereo Cookbook, 2e is a completely revamped edition of a hugely successful title that continues to sell.

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 a kickin' 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 exactly the car stereo you want: Build it yourself. Written by a master of audio electronics -- and now completely updated to include the latest audio and video technologies, The Car Stereo Cookbook shows you how to plan your design, choose your components, install them optimally -- and save lots of money!

Unlike books that cover only specific systems, this book shows you how to customize. With the Cookbook, your system will fit your tastes, your budget, and your car or truck, whether it's a rad SUV or your Dad's antique Chevy. Featuring guidance on the right specialty tools, and step-by-step instructions for 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.

  • Achieve the Extreme in Mobile Entertainment. Integrate new technologies such as MP3, WMA, HD Radio, 5.1 channel sound, including mobile video and satellite radio.
  • Upgrade premium factory sound systems such as Delco/Bose and Ford/JBL.
  • Choose, follow, and customize one of the many subwoofer projects discussed.
  • Get more amp power for your money.
  • Achieve superior sound imaging.
  • Properly set amplifier gains.
  • Interface a CD changer or digital music player with any system.
  • Pick the right power line capacitors, speaker wire, patch cables, and sound-deadening materials.
  • Avoid common automotive noise problems.
  • And a lot more!
