Adding stuff to the factory radio

Anyone know how hard it would be to add this??

It's been years that I have messed around with teaking a system, and I don't know how many options I have for the inputs/outputs of the factory radio.

I haven't been "in the loop" on car stereo stuff for a few years now. If you're planning on adding this to the factory head unit, I'd say keep your money. This product seems to be geared toward full custom aftermarket stereo setups, IMHO.

It definitely would have been nicer if there was a factory option to add a digital equalizer. I would mount it in the bin underneath the radio that is not currently being used.

Well I got the boston acoustics stock system, and I think it just sounds awesome!!

But, I like a lot of diffrent kinds of music, (no I don't listen to Rush all the time /wink) and I find that I need to adjust the settings a lot depending on what kind of music I am in the mood for at the moment.

A digital EQ with presets would work great!!!

Same here, when I listen to the radio the best sound I get is Bass +9, Mid -1, Treble +9.

When listening to my iPod (iPod EQ beging set at "Latin" for a bit of bass and treble boost, best setting so far) I sometimes have to turn down the bass setting to +7 or the bass becomes too present at low volumes, at higher volumes it is perfect.

This sound system is really good and very impressive.

The only problem I have with it is that I can hear a "rattling noise" when I listen to some types of music with big bass in it. I've been able to isolate this noise source very easily. It comes from the rear center safety belt roll in the rear right upper side of the trunk (behind the plastic cover). The longer I extend the rear center safety belt, the lesser the noise so it might just be that the tension I'm creating when I do that removes some "slack" from the roll mechanism and stops the noise. If I fully retract the seat belt in the roll the noise is much more present.

This slack in the safety belt system doesn't seems to be the only one I have in the truck. I also have a slack in the driver's safety belt (where it permanently attaches to the left bottom of the driver's seat (near the door). I'll have them fix all of this at my next oil change.

You could use an Audio Control three.1

I have use AudioControl stuff in the past and let me tell you they make your system sound amazing. The three.1 is OEM integerated so you don't need an aftermarket stereo, it works with the stock radio.

Check them out at http://www.audiocontrol.com
