Re: Retro Sound radio cuts out
Alright team I am at a loss now in regards to my retro sound radio that I have installed in my 71. Everything works fine under idle conditions. In fact it sounds great. The issue I have is when I go to accelerate the radio will cut out until I am stopped with the car at idle again. I have checked to make sure the radio is properly grounded as well as added the grounding straps from the motor to firewall and the firewall to the frame. I am running an an accel hei distributor as well as I have swapped over to the internal regulated alternator. What else should I check in order to get a constant jam while I cruise? Thanks for any assistance you are able to send my way.
In my '70 Chevelle, I hate to tell you this, but, I went through 3 of these stereos. They are cheap chinese junk. I ended up with a replica from Antique Automobile radio from Palm harbor, Florida. They are made in the USA with quality components, but, they are expensive and they have a waiting list. They come with a nice amp for the front speakers and I use a separate amp for the rear speakers. It sounds great and there is no interference. The blue tooth works awesome with my iphone. It looks original and the tuner face flips from AM to FM just like the original. It is really a quality piece worthy of my Chevelle. This is what I paid for the '70 SS replicate stereo. It is a lot of money, but, I wish I would have known about it years ago - instead of spending $200 on chinese stereo crap every few years. Good Luck with it.
