    I need help something fierce!!
    You guys remember that console that I showed you the other week that has the cd player mounted vertically and all? Well I installed it and it is skipping really bad. Is this caused by it being vertical or just cause its a jensen? It is okay when I am not moving but when I stick her in drive she just skipps really badly. Has anyone else ever had a problem mounting a cd player vertically?

    thanks

    A regular deck like that isn't designed to be mounted vertically. If you want the option of vertical mounting, most CD changers can be mounted vertically.

    plus the fact its a jensen doesnt help either. but ya. most CD/radio manufacturers suggest you dont place the radio at more than an 20 degree angle for best performance.

    Deck normally do not like to be vertical. It is the way they are made transport wise. Changer though any way you really want to mount those will work. Jensen is also a very inexpensive choice and with that comes in expensive transport. you might look into a Pioneer or Sony unit. They are pretty inexpensive.

    I think everyone has the right idea. I wouldn't waste the money getting a Pioneer or Sony unit though...they won't be much better playing vertically. I can't think of any in-dash players that are designed to operated at more than maybe a 20 degree angle...regardless of brand or quality.
    Either mount it correctly or get a changer.
