    Any Suggestions on an aux input radio?

    I am in the market for an aux input radio with around 50 watts per, with/without CD?

    Is there any 5.1 car radios?

    I am currently using a FM transmitter to connect my carputer with my sound system thru the FM reciever, works fine locally, but when i went to Fl last week, i would drive thru towns that radio stations were on the same freq at I, and well, our movie sound track would be replaced with a bee-bop sound track with commericals.

    If you want true 50Wx4 go with external amps. You'll get much better sound out of them then you will out of a 50W deck (IMHO). As far as decks with aux inputs, you could do far worse than Kenwood, good reputation and a decent product for less money than most others.

    I use an FM Transmitter. Instead of having it wireless, It is wired. I bought it at Fry's electronics for $40 then $5.00 for the RCA to Headphone cable. It's the Clarion FM 200. It works great, plus I don't need to replace batteries because it runs off my car battery (Not through the cig adapter)

    Hope this helps,

    I've just bought an AUX in adapter from www.connects2.co.uk - there are stockists worldwide.

    The AUX in adapter plugs into the CD-changer input of many factory head units and I'm very pleased with it so far.

    Try the CDX-F5700X In Dash CD/MP3 Player ....it's the cheapest (decent) aux in head unit I could find. Has three outputs for front, rear(I don't use), and sub. Has sub volume control and it has the aux in of course. Good unit for the price.

    Yup .. got one of them too.. only problem I am having is that my radio after a period of time ( not fixed time, sometimes 1 month, sometimes 3 hours) just stops playing alltogether.. well, actually, the sound stops, you can keep on changing channels, to CD and everything else but there is no more sound, If i then disconnect the power and reconnect, it works again, this is only since the Connects2 interface.

    By the way, i would REALLY suggest to get one of these instead of the FM transmitter. I bought one aswell, the good kind for around $ 80, the stereo type with good sound frequency range but still the sound was poor and when driving on holiday I got stations interfearing with the sound ( not to mention it started smoking when I connected the antenna wires wrong but that is a different story ;-) ).. anyway, hooked up the Connects2 and no more issues.. wonderfull stuff
    I'm going to hell, who's comin' with me ?
