SUP GUYS AND GALS!
I wanna replace my stock radio in my 98 sl500 with a high powered pioneer. The audio place is telling me i need to add an amp. Is this true? If so is it because its a convertible? I have had other convertibles with no amps and could here just fine with a high powered radio.

High-end headunits have built-in amp already. For example, some Pioneer units have 4x50 watts.

As for headunit, go for either Alpine or Pioneer. They are the best....although Alpine are a tad more expensive....

The left channel is going out. Im thinking its either the radio or the amp and everyone is tellin me i would be better off replacing the radio anyway. I would be using a Pioneer 50w x 4.
