Aas is advanced audio system. Tweeters would be the little speakers on the door behind the mirrors

So that IS an amp. Thought it looked like that but the previous said he didn't install...it doesn't sound advanced. Hate to hear the other I guess, shoot!

There is some audio quality gain to be had by recapping that little amp. Put some quality parts (Nichicon or Panasonic) bump up the voltage, keep the same Uf. Worked very well on mine. Might cost $5 in parts and an hour to install them. If you don't have soldering skills, maybe you know someone who does.

Cool! I can solder a bit. How fine of connections are we talking? I've resoldered electrical components on circuit boards some...blugeoned it a bit but got er done. I would really like this project for sure if you have the time....

It is not a tough job. If I remember you remove the side screws, they were the heat sinks for the output transistors. End cap screws to slide the board out. I think there were two values of capacitors. You need the same uf or capacitance, I usually go up on the voltage, so if it says 10uf 6.3v I go with 10uf 10v. Don't go up too much as the leads will be larger than the board holes. I do have a hand drill for slight enlargement. Go to the Mouser web site for these, they are very good. Make sure it shows in stock on any parts you buy. Link. https://www.mouser.com/Passive-Comp...N-75hqw?P=1yztuat&Keyword=nichicon+fw&FS=True

Also the caps have a plus and minus side. Be sure to put the new ones in the same way. Take a photo before you start!
