Can anyone figure out why mobile entertainment equipment is so expensive? The stereo in my two-year old car stopped working two weeks ago and i also have been quoted an expense of $1500 from my dealer to get a replacement. Consequently, I've began to look for mobile entertainment equipment online, that we can get and retrofit to my very own car and perhaps low cost. However, a lot of the auto audio supplies online are also extremely expensive.
I have not an issue paying for a quality product, but does a car stereo really cost $2000? I am also seeking to get a subwoofer and a couple additional speakers, but some with the prices listed seem extremely high. Does anyone determine if buying second-hand audio equipment for the vehicle is a good idea? I've looked over several listings on eBay for car stereos along with the price is much more affordable, but obviously second-hand equipment won't include any kind guarantee, right? Also, can anyone recommend a great car audio and video equipment supplier? Ideally I will be looking for the best online supplier, when i live in a province , nor like to travel much.
