Acura

2004-2008 Acura TL
by Jon Paulette

The 2004-2008 Acura TL is a comfortable, stylish, sporty sedan that's sure to make both drivers and passengers happy. Upgrading the TL's sound system offers a few significant challenges, but the effort will be worth it when you hear the results.

Buick

2008-2012 Buick Enclave
by Jon Paulette

From the taut, muscular exterior to the curvy, comfortable interior, the Enclave has everything you'd expect in a Buick, plus acres of space and surprisingly decent handling. And, thanks to luxury car levels of noise suppression, the Enclave's cabin is a great place for a new stereo system.

Cadillac

2007-2014 Cadillac Escalade
by Jon Paulette

Even in a parking lot full of SUVs (i.e., most parking lots), this truck stands out from the crowd. And, if you're like most Escalade owners, that's totally okay with you. If you wanted to blend in, you could take your pick of nice, bland luxury sedans. But what fun would that be?

Chevrolet

The Chevy Silverado has always been a workhorse, so it's not surprising to see so many 1999-2002 models on the road today. If your truck is still running strong, why not replace the weak, old factory stereo with something that sounds better and gives you more features?

Chevy built this Silverado from 2003 to 2006, and then kept it on as the 2007 Silverado Classic when they introduced a new model. It's a great-looking truck, but the factory stereo hasn't aged as well as the exterior. Thankfully, that's easy to fix.

2005-2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
by Rick Carlton

The Cobalt replaced the Cavalier as Chevy's midsize car, and boasted upgraded 'everything,' including a bottom-to-top suspension and chassis re-design. But the car's sound system is starting to age a little, and has room for improvement.

The Corvette has long been regarded as "America's One True Sports Car." With the C6, Chevy stopped settling for being the best in America by default, and got serious about beating the best in the world on merit. We can help you make your "one true sports car" sound truly awesome.

2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR
by Jon Paulette

The Chevrolet HHR gives you the everyday utility you'd expect, but without the bland, boxy styling that makes it hard to remember which one's yours every time you walk out of the hardware store. A design like this will look cool for years to come, so why not make it sound cool, too?

2006-2012 Chevrolet Impala
by Jon Paulette

The 2006-12 Chevy Impala has quietly built up quite a following. Considering its stylish looks, roomy interior and decent road manners, we're not a bit surprised. In base form, the Impala is a sane, solid family car. In SS trim, the Impala is an impressive performer.

The 2007-11 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, like many modern trucks, offers an amazing combination of luxury and utility. If you still like your truck, but want more out of your stereo system, there are plenty of upgrades available.

If you're looking for one big vehicle that can do just about anything the average person needs to do, the 2007-13 Chevy Avalanche might be everything you need. Like most Chevy trucks, the Avalanche is a great platform for an upgraded audio system.

GM's line of full-size SUVs have long been a favorite of big families, outdoor enthusiasts, and hyper-observant people wearing dark suits and sunglasses. These big, comfy, capable trucks offer plenty of room for audio system improvement.

2010-2013 Chevrolet Camaro
by Jon Paulette

Like its cross-town rivals, the Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang, the Camaro is a thoroughly modern muscle car that combines present-day performance and old-school style. There are some stereo installation challenges, but we have the advice you need to do the job.

Chrysler

In a world full of dull, grey sedans, the Chrysler PT Cruiser is one of those rare designs that really stands out, even after a decade-plus on the road. If you want your car to sound as nifty as it looks, the PT is a great platform for an aftermarket stereo system.

With two seats, precious little luggage space and submarine-quality rear visibility, the Chrysler Crossfire is about as practical as a disco ball in a duck blind. But so what? A car like this isn't meant to be practical; it's meant to be sporty, stylish, and fun - which by all accounts, it is.

A mid-cycle update refreshed and refined the Chrysler PT Cruiser. If you're looking for a versatile car with character to spare, the PT is a solid choice. There's plenty of space for you, your family, and your stuff. And, of course, a great stereo system.

The fifth-generation Chrysler Town & Country offers everything you'd want in a luxurious people mover. With loads of space and lots of features, the T&C lets you haul kids and cargo in comfort. Upgrading the entertainment system will help make it "fun for the whole family."

Dodge

2002-2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab
by Charlie Pastorfield

With an oversized grille and styling that really says "Made in the U.S.A," the Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab is one of the most distinctive vehicles on the road today. If you want to add a standout stereo, there are plenty of upgrades available for this popular truck.

2002-2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Regular Cab
by Charlie Pastorfield

Two options are available for these Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab trucks: the standard 4-speaker system, and the Infinity system with seven speakers. It can be a little confusing to upgrade the audio system in this truck, but the good news is that you have options.

2005-2011 Dodge Dakota
by Jon Paulette

The Dodge (aka Ram) Dakota was one of the last of the "mid-size" pickups. Available in Club Cab and four-door Quad Cab models, the Dakota is a terrific truck for people who know exactly how much truck they need and why. Once you find the right truck, why not fill it with the right stereo?

2008-2010 Dodge Charger
by Jon Paulette

The 2008-10 Dodge Charger is handsome, roomy, comfortable and, if it's "got a Hemi in it," almost ridiculously powerful. Chargers are easy to shop for, easy to work on, and well worth the investment. If you're planning a killer stereo installation, you've purchased the right car.

2008-up Dodge Challenger
by Jon Paulette

Today's Dodge Challenger is a muscle car for grown-ups. Sure, this powerful coupe is fun between stoplights, but it's also a comfortable long-distance cruiser with surprising amounts of room for people, stuff, and, of course, aftermarket stereo equipment.

2008-up Dodge Grand Caravan
by Jon Paulette

The redesigned 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan improved upon all that was good about Chrysler's genre-defining minivan line. The GC is a comfortable, capable people-mover with plenty of room for audio and video improvements.

Dodge Truck

2005-2011 Dodge Dakota
by Jon Paulette

The Dodge (aka Ram) Dakota was one of the last of the "mid-size" pickups. Available in Club Cab and four-door Quad Cab models, the Dakota is a terrific truck for people who know exactly how much truck they need and why. Once you find the right truck, why not fill it with the right stereo?

Fiat

2012-up Fiat 500
by Jon Paulette

If you're looking for a (very) small car that's made for living in the city, the Fiat 500 is a great choice. It's economical, easy to park, and a ton of fun to drive. If you're looking for ideas on how to upgrade the Cinquecento's rather weak factory stereo, you've come to the right place.

Ford

1987-1993 Ford Mustang
by Jon Paulette

The 1987-1993 Mustang was a hugely popular car when new and it's still a big part of the automotive world today. If you're looking for a stereo that you can hear over all the fun you're having, we've got everything you need to make your Mustang sound great.

2001-2004 Ford Mustang
by Jon Paulette

Ford's 2001-04 Mustangs look sharp, handle well, and, since everyone's paying more attention to the newer models, they don't cost a ton of money. If you're dreaming of adding a new stereo system to your Mustang, you've come to the right place.

2001-2007 Ford Escape
by Rick Carlton

The first-generation Escape took the small SUV market by storm, and there are still plenty of them on the road today. With plenty of room for people, bikes, and whatever else, the Escape is a handy vehicle to have around. Once you upgrade the stereo, it'll also be a nice place to be.

2002-2004 Ford Explorer
by Matt Holliday

One of the longest-running sport utility nameplates on the road, the Ford Explorer is a classic. These days it does way more than haul kids to soccer practice - over the years Ford added all sorts of options, including several for the stereo system.

Ford's long-running Crown Victoria (and its cousin, the Mercury Grand Marquis) isn't just a big car; it's a big part of our shared culture. They don't make 'em like this anymore, and with some upgraded audio gear, you can make your car a great place to enjoy music in style.

Ford must have had car audio fans in mind when they built this truck. The roomy interior offers plenty of space for new speakers, a stereo, and much more. You'll have plenty of options to choose from, and the modular design makes installation surprisingly easy.

The F-150 SuperCab gives you more room for family, pets, stuff--and audio upgrades. The comfortable interior offers plenty of space for a new receiver, speakers, and even a subwoofer. You'll have lots of options, and the modular design takes the hassle out of installation.

2004-2008 Ford F-150 SuperCrew
by Charlie Pastorfield

The F-150 SuperCrew is a true "do-anything" truck. It can haul the kids to school and haul an old TV to the recycling center--on the same trip. The roomy interior gives you lots of space for entertainment upgrades and the modular construction makes installation easy.

2005-2009 Ford Mustang
by Rick Carlton

The 2005-09 Mustang re-ignited the "pony car" wars with its combination of retro style and modern performance. Whether you're looking for a stylish daily driver or a bellowing muscle car, there's a Mustang for you. Once you find your Mustang, we'll help you build a great audio system.

With a nimble chassis, handsome styling, and plenty of optional features to choose from, the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan were immediate hits. Whichever one you choose, you'll have a smart, comfortable car with plenty of potential for audio upgrades.

Ford's 12th generation F-150 is a hard-working truck with a lot to offer. A variety of factory stereos could be optioned into the F-150, but no matter what's in the dash and doors, those factory stereos aren't as powerful as the truck that surrounds them. Thankfully, we know how to fix that.

The F-150 SuperCab is a versatile, hard-working truck that's at home in the mountains or at the mall. This popular pickup was available in a variety of trim packages with a variety of stereos, but if you're serious about sound, you'll want an aftermarket upgrade.

Whether you and your crew are headed to a job site or a tailgate party. the F-150 SuperCrew has plenty of space for whatever you're hauling. A variety of factory stereo systems were available in this truck, but if you're serious about sound, you'll want an aftermarket upgrade.

2010-2014 Ford Mustang coupe
by Matt Holliday

In 2010, Ford treated the fifth-generation Mustang to a mid-cycle update that included subtle styling tweaks, more horsepower and better fuel economy. The factory stereos aren't bad, but if you're serious about sound, you'll want to do some updating of your own.

GMC

Judging by the number of trucks you still see on the road, the 1999-2002 GMC Sierra 1500 is one tough pickup. The factory audio, on the other hand, is a bit weak. Thankfully, upgrading the Sierra's stereo is pretty straightforward, and there's plenty of great aftermarket gear available.

GM's line of full-size SUVs have long been a favorite of big families, outdoor enthusiasts, and hyper-observant people wearing dark suits and sunglasses. These big, comfy, capable trucks offer plenty of room for audio system improvement.

Honda

The late '90s and early 2000s cemented the Accord's reputation as a well-built, reliable car. Not surprisingly, there are still a lot of 1998-2002 models on the road today. If you're interested in updating the sound system in your Accord, there's a lot of great gear available.

This Honda Civic was nice enough when new, but it's also an easy car to improve. A wide variety of go-fast parts are available, plus it's also a great car for first-timers to work on. If you want to upgrade the audio performance in your Civic, we have the gear you need to do the job right.

2001-2005 Honda Civic sedan
by Matt Holliday

Thanks to near-legendary reliability, affordability and efficiency, the Honda Civic has long been one of the most popular cars around. They're also known for impressive longevity, so if your seventh-generation Civic is still running strong, a new stereo is probably a wise investment.

2003-2007 Honda Accord sedan
by Buck Pomerantz

The Honda Accord sedan has long been the poster child for what the automotive industry does right. It's attractive, comfortable, safe, reliable, and known for maintaining a high resale value. Most people keep their Accords for a long time, so it makes sense to upgrade the stereo system.

2003-2008 Honda Pilot
by Jon Paulette

The first-gen Honda Pilot has been a suburban staple for years, and this handsome hauler remains a solid choice if you're looking for a comfortable SUV. The Pilot's stock stereo isn't bad, but if you're a real music lover, you'll want to upgrade.

2003-2011 Honda Element
by Jon Paulette

The Honda Element is one of those versatile vehicles that can handle just about anything you throw at it or in it. The tall, boxy shape holds a lot of stuff, and the clever door arrangement and low step-in makes access easy. There's also plenty of room for an impressive stereo system.

2006-2011 Honda Civic
by Rick Carlton

The Civic has evolved from its humble sub-compact beginnings to become a leader in the luxury compact segment. By 2011, it regularly topped nearly all competitors in U.S. sales. This profile shows you what to expect when you replace your factory stereo system.

2007-2008 Honda Fit
by Jon Paulette

The 2007-2008 Fit looks kinda cool, holds a surprising amount of stuff, gets out of its own way on the interstate, and actually provides comfortable seating for at least two adult humans of normal size. No wonder it was a perennial fixture on numerous car magazine "Best of" lists.

2009-2014 Honda Fit
by Jon Paulette

The second-gen Fit improved upon all that was good about the original and added some cool new stuff to the mix. It's a little bit bigger, a little more refined, and a little more composed, but it still has the practicality and tossability that made the Fit a hit in the first place.

Hummer

2006-2010 Hummer H3
by Jon Paulette

The Hummer brand went the way of the dodo in 2010, but there are still plenty of these brawny beasts on the road. The H3 isn't for everyone, but if it's the truck for you, you're really going to enjoy it. With a new stereo, you'll enjoy it even more.

Hyundai

2003-2008 Hyundai Tiburon
by Jon Paulette

The 2003-08 Hyundai Tiburon is an affordable choice for anyone looking for a sporty runabout with plenty of potential. It's the kind of car you'd actually want to buy -- not just because it's cheap, but because it's actually kind of cool.

Infiniti

In some ways, the first-generation Infiniti G35 was arguably a better "European" sports sedan than some of its European competitors. Good looks and good handling make the G35 a smart purchase for anyone who values the practicality of a sedan and the performance of a sports car.

Jeep

1973-1985 Jeep CJ5 and CJ7
by Jon Paulette

When you're climbing desert dunes or fording mountain streams in your vintage Jeep, you're probably too busy to worry about sound and music. But when you're in town, a quality stereo is nice to have. If you're looking for audio gear that's tough enough for Jeep duty, you're in the right place.

1997-2002 Jeep Wrangler
by Rick Carlton

With the 1997-2002 iteration of the Wrangler, Jeep continued to improve the vehicle's around-town capabilities without compromising its off-road bona fides. Upgrading the stereo system is reasonably easy, but there are a couple of areas that require some DIY ingenuity.

1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
by Robert Ferency-Viars

The redesigned 1999-2004 Grand Cherokee was slightly larger than the previous version and had a new interior, but it still had that classic Cherokee style. If you want to have great stereo sound when you head for the great outdoors, we'll help you find the gear you need.

2002-2007 Jeep Liberty
by Traci Benoit

The 2002-07 Jeep Liberty Sport is a compact SUV that's as capable of tackling the rocks and trails as it is at handling city streets. The factory audio options were somewhat limited, so if you want to take your tunes to a new level, there's plenty of room for improvement in this Jeep.

2003-2006 Jeep Wrangler
by Charlie Pastorfield

Jeep Wrangers are generally more associated with rock climbing than rockin' car audio systems, but Jeep owners love music, too. The 2003-06 Wrangler offers some pretty cool options for building a great-sounding system that's tough enough for the trail.

2004-2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
by Charlie Pastorfield

With the Wrangler Unlimited, you can get away from it all without leaving great stereo sound behind. There's room for a powerful new receiver, plenty of spaces for speakers, and a variety of interesting options if you want to add a subwoofer.

The newest Wranglers prove that it's possible to combine the rugged, go-anywhere capability Jeep enthusiasts demand with the comfort mainstream audiences expect. In 2011, Jeep rolled out some changes that made the Wrangler's interior a much nicer place for an aftermarket stereo.

Kia

2010-2013 Kia Soul
by Jon Paulette

Once known for churning out unremarkable cars with remarkable warranties, Kia has come a long way in a relatively short time. The Soul is a nifty, fun-to-drive little box with a style all its own, but you still get that remarkable Kia warranty.

Lamborghini

The Lamborghini Murcielago's wonderful V-12 engine sounds as good idling as it does at full shriek, but a little music is nice, too. If the sound of your favorite tunes matters as much as the sound of a high-performance engine, you'll definitely want to upgrade your Lambo's factory system.

Lincoln

2003-2011 Lincoln Town Car
by Jon Paulette

Quiet, comfortable, and unapologetically enormous, the Lincoln Town Car was the last of the old-school, full-size, rear-wheel drive American luxury cars. With plenty of space and yards of factory sound insulation, the Town Car can be a wonderful environment for a new car audio system.

Lotus

2005-2011 Lotus Elise
by Jon Paulette

The Lotus Elise is your basic full-blooded, no-kidding sports car. It's small, it's cramped, it offers little or no luggage space, and it's completely (and delightfully) impractical. The Elise doesn't offer a ton of room, but there's a surprising amount of room for improvement in the sound system.

Mazda

1999-2000 Mazda Protege
by Jon Paulette

The 1999-2000 Protege was every car magazine's favorite economy sedan back in the day, but it's been kind of forgotten. That's a shame ­- unless you're thinking about buying one. The car has great bones, a comfortable interior, a willing engine, and a reputation for sporty handling.

2001-2005 Mazda Miata
by Jon Paulette

When you're driving a Miata on a curvy, country road, music probably isn't all that important. But into each life a little rain must fall and the only thing to do when that happens is put the top up and enjoy some music. You're driving a great little car, so why not enjoy some great stereo sound?

Mercury

Ford's long-running Crown Victoria (and its cousin, the Mercury Grand Marquis) isn't just a big car; it's a big part of our shared culture. They don't make 'em like this anymore, and with some upgraded audio gear, you can make your car a great place to enjoy music in style.

With a nimble chassis, handsome styling, and plenty of optional features to choose from, the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan were immediate hits. Whichever one you choose, you'll have a smart, comfortable car with plenty of potential for audio upgrades.

MINI

While larger than its dimunitive forebears, the 2002-06 MINI Cooper is still a great example of how much driving fun can fit into a small package. If you care about sound, there's also plenty of room for improvement in the factory audio system.

Mitsubishi

The original Eclipse was a rowdy little pocket rocket that captured the imagination of teenagers and tuners alike. The fourth (and final) generation Eclipse, on the other hand, is a more mature sort of sports car -- but it's still fun.

Nissan

2002-2004 Nissan Altima
by Jon Paulette

When Nissan designed the 2002-2004 Altima, they knew that anything with four doors and a place to tie down a child seat would sell like hotcakes. But they designed something interesting anyway. This Altima is roomy, practical, safe, and - surprise, surprise - fun to drive.

2003-2005 Nissan 350Z
by Traci Benoit

The 2003-05 Nissan 350Z offers all the performance you'd expect from a Z-car, plus a refined, comfortable cockpit and plenty of features. The stereo probably doesn't sound as sporty as it used to, though, so an audio upgrade will make your Z an even better place to be.

2005-2006 Nissan Altima
by John Pollard

Thanks to sharp styling and a slick engine, the 2005-06 Nissan Altima remains a popular choice for commuters and car lovers alike. The factory stereos weren't bad for the time, but technology moves fast. Aftermarket gear will give you better sound and work with more devices.

2005-2012 Nissan Xterra
by Rick Carlton

With rugged, sporty styling, a spacious interior, and a solid powertrain, Nissan's Xterra remains an impressive performer, on- or off-road. If you're still enjoying your Xterra, upgrading the old audio system will add a lot to your future adventures.

Pontiac

1997-2002 Pontiac Firebird
by Jon Paulette

There's something to be said for continually improving on a good idea. By the 2002, the Firebird was the best it had ever been at doing what ponycars do - accelerating quickly, handling well, and looking cool. These cars are still a blast to drive, and a new stereo makes it even better.

2005-2010 Pontiac G6
by Jon Paulette

The Pontiac G6 offers a variety of body styles and trim levels, all of which are sleek and stylish. From the 4-cylinder base sedan to the performance-oriented GTP coupes and convertibles, the G6 range has something for nearly everyone.

Scion

2004-2006 Scion xB
by Jon Paulette

Scion's first-gen xB was a welcome addition to an often bland automotive landscape. The xB isn't for everyone, but if it's the car for you, you'll be rewarded with a surprisingly vast amount of interior space, decent road manners and an impressive list of standard features.

2005-2010 Scion tC
by Rick Carlton

The Scion tC doesn't look particularly innovative, but a lot of thinking went into this sporty little coupe. Building a brand from scratch isn't easy, but cars like the tC made Scion an immediate success. Building a great audio system in your tC is a lot easier, and we're here to help.

2008-up Scion xB
by Jon Paulette

The original Scion xB was a small, quirky box of a car that quickly found a loyal following in a crowded U.S. marketplace. The second-gen xB is longer, lower and wider, but it's still a practical people-mover with just enough of Scion's trademark Scion-ness to keep things interesting.

Smart

The smart fortwo coupe isn't everybody's cup of chai tea, but if it's yours, you're probably going to like it a lot. You'll definitely want to upgrade the audio equipment, though. Just because you're driving a tiny car doesn't mean you have to put up with a tinny stereo.

Subaru

The Subaru Impreza WRX sedan made its name by winning a host of international autocross and rally championships, and that performance pedigree really shows in the 2002-04 models. If you're still enjoying your WRX, a new stereo will make backroad blasts a lot more fun.

The Impreza Wagon is a popular vehicle, especially big with the tuner crowd and in areas that suffer from harsh winters. The WRX version, in particular, has made its mark as a sporty, high-performance vehicle with lots of room for mechanical, cosmetic, and audio upgrades.

2010-2014 Subaru Outback
by Jon Paulette

Sure-footed, spacious, and comfortable, the Outback has carved out a niche as the utility vehicle of choice for people who wouldn't be caught dead in an SUV. Even if you don't live in the mountains, there's a lot to like in this versatile car.

2013-up Subaru BRZ
by Jon Paulette

While there's something wonderful about having more horsepower than you need, raw power isn't the only way to have fun in a car. There are plenty of grins to be had in a well-balanced car with the right combination of motor, manners, and moxie. Like, for example, the Subaru BRZ.

Suzuki

2007-2013 Suzuki SX4
by Jon Paulette

Suzuki doesn't sell cars here anymore, but their SX4 is still a very nifty car that's a lot of fun to drive. Replacing that tired old factory stereo system with a new receiver and speakers will make your Suzuki an even more enjoyable way to get around town.

Toyota

2003-2008 Toyota Corolla
by John Pollard

The 2003-08 Toyota Corolla is an economical car with a high reliability factor. If you've picked up a used Corolla and you're checking out your audio options, we've got good news for you. First, you bought a nice car. Second, you can install a great stereo system in your Corolla.

The 2005-11 Toyota Tacoma DoubleCab is a rugged pickup with plenty of room for passengers. Whether your truck has the base stereo or the optional JBL system, there are plenty of audio upgrade possibilities out there for this tough truck.

2006-2012 Toyota RAV4
by Jon Paulette

When it comes to so-called "cute utes," the Toyota RAV4 is one of the best around. The third-generation model, which debuted in 2006 and lasted until 2012, was extremely popular with both press and public for its ride, handling, and overall non-truckiness.

2007-2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser
by Jon Paulette

The FJ Cruiser is the spiritual descendant of Toyota's original FJ40 Land Cruiser. The modern FJ combines the original's off-road ability with modern conveniences and retro styling that helps it stand out from ordinary SUVs. All you need now is a stereo that stands out from other FJs.

The second-generation Toyota Tundra is big enough, tough enough, and strong enough to go head-to-head with the best of the Big Three. The factory stereo isn't bad, but if you're looking to upgrade your Tundra's sound system, Crutchfield has the equipment and advice you need.

Well aware that full-sized pickups were selling faster than most cars, including their own Camry, Toyota went big in 2007. The result was the second-generation Tundra, which has all the size and strength necessary to match up with the best of the Big Three.

2009-2013 Toyota Corolla
by Jon Paulette

The tenth-generation Corolla's enormous popularity means there are plenty of good used models out there waiting for a good new owner. If you're looking for a reliable ride that's easy on gas, easy on the eyes, and easy to own, a 2009-13 Corolla is a solid choice.

Volkswagen

1998-2010 Volkswagen Beetle
by Traci Benoit

Designed to capitalize on the immense popularity of the original VW Beetle, the New Beetle made its debut in 1998. It went largely unchanged throughout its production run, which lasted until 2010. Replacing the Beetle's stereo is fairly easy, but the speakers require a little more work.

2009-2013 Volkswagen Routan
by Jon Paulette

The Volkswagen Routan offers an interesting blend of American ingenuity and Teutonic engineering. It's based on Chrysler's fifth-generation minivans, but there's much more to the Routan than a simple case of badge-engineering.

With a comfortable interior and smooth, refined road manners, the VW Jetta is a wonderful way to add some European flair to your everyday drive. If you like a little music while you're carving up a country road, add a new stereo and speakers to your Jetta.
