Did your Infinity stereo go bazerk?
I've seen mind go full blast on its own. The cassette also deck chuck and jived me to death. Then you begin to think that having amplifiers on each speaker isn't such a hot idea when you want to replace it with an after market radio. Reality is that the Infinity radio is a cheep radio that only puts out about 5 watts per channel and hooking up a 25 watt after market radio us sure to blow out the amps if you are onto the fact that you have to feed 12volt power to the amps. Tweeters if you don't.
The first wire one the left is a pink wire that is a always hot (for the clock.)The second wire from the left is the power supply wire which is a good wire to get power for the getto blaster as well as the amplifiers on the speakers because it is filtered for alternator interference noise.
Importantly, if you want to run on the vehicles 12volt power, it's best to find a radio that operates on eight battery cells. In these picture below, I illustrate how to hook up your own power to the radio if it doesn't have a jack for external power.

September 9th 2008: This week I revived the Caddy Trunk.
I think it's pretty neat, like a portable pick up I can roll about in my one car garage.
Helpful Hint: whenever working around car battery's and their connections, don't ware any metallic rings - because if you create abridge to a body or engine block with your ring - they can turn red hot in a split second. There is nothing like the agony of trying to pull a ring off while it is melting you skin
Sunday May 13th, 2007: I've been setting the 30 pages for this web-site.

Pretty Cool I'd say.
