Had a "system" for a couple months. Sold it last week actually. Wasn't blasting rap or anything like that.
Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture sounded great on it.
Cannons, mmmm

I will be removing my Pioneer head unit and infiniti 6 1/2 door speakers tomorrow.

Got an Ipod cheap from a friend, and by Ipod i mean a "mini" and by cheap i mean FREE. So i couldnt turn down the chance. Think of all the reduced electrical load on my alternator.

Now as far as driving around with ear bud headphones in......
Im not so sure im comfortable with that at all. I will most likely drive with a bud in my left ear only.

Thinking about throwing in one of those ipod speaker system addition's.
something similar to this....


Something maybe smaller than that, more simple, possibly battery powered. Something I can recharge with AA batteries etc...

From the ones I have heard they are more than loud enough for my little car.
On top of that my aero mods have cut down on road noise.
And i still have to get into my underbody work.

Hello -

I have a kitchen timer that I set for 9 minutes. When the KFWB "traffic on the ones" comes on, I trigger the timer. After the traffic report, I may flip between Air America, KPFK FM, Tape, el cheapo CD player (probably with a book on CD), or el-cheapo MP3 player. When the alarm goes off, I switch back to KFWB, always in search of traffic accidents.

But sometimes I leave it on the news channel. Sometimes I flip between the baseball games. I can get Dodgers, Angels, Padres, and Giants (after the sun sets).

I wear a stupid headset in case my wife calls, but I like the stupid headset anti-style.

I am very distracted and very engaged at the same time because I am trying to optimize my route (35+ miles one way in LA!!!!!!) just like all of you.

What? What did he say, I couldn't hear him...

90% of the time, the radio is playing NPR, CDs, or just FM stations (10% of the time, I'm just tired of driving and noise). I have to distract that part of my brain while I focus on the SG (and the road ) I can't talk and drive, usually the sentence will start, then half-way through I forget what I was talking about and concentrate on the "Zone". The highway is different -- a little less interaction with the road. I dislike the cell-phone -- I'd like to pitch it in the Missouri River as I cross it -- but duty calls (literally).
