Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I just bought a 2000 buick century custom featuring the concert sound 2 system, the kid that owned it before me had put in Kenwood speakers in the rear, however the front speakers sound pretty bad in which case I'm probably just going to re haul the whole system, I'm not a big fan of Kenwood anyways. So I'm thinking about throwing some boss skull speakers in to give it a little pizzaz look but keep a good sound, and then my boss deck, with a couple 12 inch subs. Not quite sure which subs or amp to go with yet though.. Any suggestions? Also the front door tweeters, i would like to replace those as well. But don't know which ones to do.. would it be better to simply replace them inside the door, or mount them somewhere? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance guys!

SOURCE: car stereo im trying to build

I guess the question you need to ask yourself then is how much money are you willing to spend? If you are looking for a sound quality system then it WILL cost a lot more than a DB all out BASS system. The system that you have picked out isn't a bad one but as with all systems this in only half the story. You will need to have it installed well to get the best from the speakers that you have chosen too. If you want to have the stealth look in the cabin then it's pretty simple, but you will not get the best sound quality or should I say imaging as the OEM locations usually are no good for this.

I would suggest that even though you keep things looking stealthy in the cabin apply sound deadening to the doors as Asian cars are generally quite tinny unlike German cars. This will make a big difference in terms of overall sound quality & help keep out the road noise so you can hear every little detail of your personalised system.

SOURCE: no sound out of tweeters, highs out of woofers?

it does sound like you shorted out your crossover which can be fixed if you know what you are doing, but in the long run i would try to get another one i know that raidoshack sells some small ones and is also cheap, if your positive that you didnt short out the crossover se if it needs power, see if you can cross your woffers and tweeters on the crossover, if not is there any settings that u can change on the crossover? hope i helped :)

2000 Buick century custom only has heat when you accelerate fast but puts out cold air when you accelerate normally or at a steady speed.


Check your coolant level. Not enough fluid in the radiator to circulate when the engine is operating normally.

2002 Buick Century locks its doors automatically and constantly


i dont see this as a major or even minor problem, why is it bothering you? if you wanna idle your car in drive whats the point? if your just waiting for someone to come in, put it in pak and the door will unlock BY THEMSELVES, sounds good to me, and then after the person jumps in put in in drive/reverse.... or u can simply leave it in gear THEN unlock it, the back doors dont have power lock button so they have to do it manually or if youre in park they dont have to do it at all. its a nice feature 1 in a million would actually not like this feature

My kenwood receiver has


If you are referring to the rear speakers, it is normal. The rear speakers are not supposed to get a signal as loud as the fronts or center.

A surround sound system was originally developed for playing movies and the rear channels are for effects. In most surround modes the center channel will always be the loudest with the widest range of audio signals.

I have been repairing these type of systems since they have been on the market, so I know a lot about them.

This Kenwood you have is like most surround systems and does not have a feature that you would obviously like to have, 5 channel stereo. Only a few surround systems have this feature and they cost much more than the Kenwood systems. Denon and Marantz both make one with that feature. In 5 channel stereo you get a full signal to all the speakers. All the other surround modes you get a much lower signal to the rear speakers.

So in closing, you do not need it fixed, there is nothing wrong with it. You have a common complaint that many people have who buy a surround sound system but are not fully understanding of just what a surround systems is supposed to be capable of
. This is something that the salesman who sold it to you should have explained to you, that way you could have purchased a system that would have better suited your needs.

I would be happy to give you more help if you would like, just let me know. As I already stated, I have many years of experience with surround sounds systems, in fact I own the exact Kenwood model that you have and I like it very much. It is about the best you can get for that price.
