2001 S2K Sound Upgrades

Hey guys. I'm 100% new to this forum, and actually, forums in general. So I'm not even sure if I'm in the right place to begin with. A couple of days ago I got a 2001 S2000 and I absolutely LOVE it. The only thing that sucks is that the sound system is poor. I was wondering if there were any cheap upgrades that are worth getting? I'm just a broke student and make about 500 a month after payments.

Cheap and Upgrade, I'm not so sure you can find both together. But, why not enjoy the sound system courtesy of the engine compartment

Check on the internet for head units (single DIN if you want to get technical). Almost any head unit will work and 99% of them will be an improvement over the Clarion that Momma Honda stuck in the car. You can pick one up for around $100. I'd also suggest you stick with either Alpine or Panasonic because Modifry (www.modifry.com) makes an adapter that let's you plug and play a new head unit and keep the dash controls.

I have been telling myself to upgrade my 09's system for years. I do like the sound of the car. I find myself not even thinking about turning the music on. I also have noticed lots of other people wear headphones (earbuds) while driving. Seems to me like it would be important to hear what is going on around you.

I did a pretty good NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) sound insulation project and found it produced a real improvement in my stock sound system both in quality and a reduction in volume to what was required to hear it.

Crutchfields has a great selection process.

Bob now has a unit that will handle JVC head units. I have it and it's just great.

BTW, I have a JVC KD-DV6200 for sale for $90 shipped including the Honda to JVC harness and the infra-red version of the Modifry dash control adapter.

Modifry items

Modifry has great stuff. I've got an Alpine head unit and with the Modifry interface, all my dash controls work perfect. I've also got the glove box organizer and the dash mount for my cel phone/gps. I've also bought some of his tools to help remove clips and such things. This is not a paid advertisement. Just a normal guy who is happy with Modifry products.

I had upgraded to a XM Radio. It was installed without the harness. Therefore I had to use a remote while driving to operate it???? I had it removed and ended up paying a restocking fee. Allegedly they had the part, just didn't use it?
The way I have it now is an improvement...just need more bass.
I have a better mechanic now. Better than the ones contracted by the dealership.
The dealership has been a royal pain in my butt. All my problems come from the dealership.
