First of all your work is WOW! After working on my minor stereo issues yesterday I have a new appreciation for all the crawling around on the floor and shoving you arm in a hole that it takes to do your caliber of work.
I have stock 2000 SAN clarion system. All the left speakers cut in and out. I pulled out the stereo and saw nothing suspect. Wiggled and jiggled all the wires and could not make it fail. I squeezed the stereo to replace it and everything on left side went silent. I found I could tap on it and make it come back on. I figured that it is 9 years old and time for the trash.
Any suggestions for a replacement? I have a 6 disc cd changer and need an ipod/mp3 output. Stock MTX tower speakers and whatever CC used OEM. I have a remote volume control and a fader. The speakers seem fine and I donít see a monster stereo system in the future.
They too will need replacing at some time Iím sure. I just donít want to be shortsighted in my decision.
