So I just got done installing a new stereo kit and my HU still skips above volume 14....Eh. And the main thing is, its secured really tight. Tighter than before.

What Hu do you have...I just have an old pioneer (p6400) and it takes 149s and never skips a beat. I can dam near bite a chunk out of a CD and it will play it. The functions are kinda lacking though...looking at gettin a premier sooner or later.

Have you been metered yet?

Berny, when it skips are you playing a store bought CD or a burned CD? If it's a burned disc, you could try burning it at a slower speed, I don't burn audio CDs faster than 16x. Some CD players have trouble reading discs burned at faster speeds, it has to do with how deep the laser burns the pits into the disc. Newer players usually don't have this type of problem, but it can't hurt to try...
