How to Design and Install in Car Entertainment Systemsby Jeffrey Bryant

Years ago, enthusiasts had limited in-car entertainment system options. One could install a high-performance head unit, amp, speakers, and upgrade a few other components, and that was about it. Today, in-car entertainment system options are virtually limitless, and they are one of the most popular upgrades. In fact, upgrading or replacing a stock stereo system is just the tip of the in-car entertainment iceberg. Enthusiasts can install a complete entertainment system, including navigation, audio and video, MP3 player (iPod), HD radio, satellite radio, and more. Video monitors for DVD and game systems can be incorporated in the dash, head rest, or anywhere else. When you consider GPS navigation and hands-free Bluetooth® cell phone system, the options are only limited by a person's creativity and budget. How to Design and Install Car Entertainment Systems presents the entire spectrum of audio/video, navigation, communication, and entertainment technology, and explains how you can create a complete custom system or an integrated stock/aftermarket system. It explains how to plan, select, integrate, and install popular systems under a specific budget for a certain level of performance. This includes design and installation considerations for audio and video, GPS navigation, video game systems (PS3, X-Box 360, and more), iPod integration with head units, satellite radio, digital audio broadcasting, car security, and even computers (carputers). It features how-to installations thorough explanations of professional only builds, descriptions of hook-ups, mechanical upgrades such as charging systems, and a comprehensive resource guide.

This was a informative book that would give someone like me who before reading this book knew nothing about audio systems a good knowledge of how they work. I would say that after reading this book a few more times to re-gather information and get new information that I missed before I might know more about car audio systems than a standard sales man at best buy or some other store that might try to sell me something. It is confusing the first time you read but I think a second time would clear up a lot of things I think I missed. It would be a great book for someone who already has basic knowledge on this subject but for someone who doesn't you may have to read it a second time to fully understand. I would still recommend this book to anyone looking to learn more about this subject no matter how much you know now. After reading it once I would say I know a decent amount more than the basics of audio systems.
