"I bought an old, relatively crappy '97 Suzuki Swift from my friend before he went on his mission. Everything's working out fine, except the speakers/audio receiver are terrible. I am really good with electronics (computers/home theater) but I have no clue about anything when it comes to cars.
Not only do these cans sound like cell phone speakers, but they short out a lot when you turn the volume knob, or even hit a bump in the road. So I'm pretty sure I'll need to replace both the speakers and the tape deck. I'm definitely gonna upgrade the receiver to something better, something with a cd player and hopefully a 3.5mm input. I couldn't care less about the speaker quality though.
Anyway, if you didn't read anything else, read this: I want to get new speakers and upgrade the audio receiver in my car. How would I go about doing this cheap, and without getting ripped off? Since I am so clueless, I think it would be really easy to get ripped off.
Also, is self installation difficult? I've put together computers before, but I don't know about working with a car..."
Answer: You can try Amazon. They have a new car parts search thing.
And they also have the best books you can find so get the manual for your car.
