Radio part?
« on: February 25, 2020 - 03:17:16 pm »
I was told that this box has something to do with extra speakers with the radio in my 1970 'Cuda.  I am not sure what it does as my radio has been inoperable for years.  If anybody knows what it is used for, please let me know.  If it is for radio speakers, I have no need for it.  It has 3 pairs of wires on the harness (olive/red, green/black, blue with and without white stripe).  The label is 80% gone and now shows only a MOPAR pentastar "2884" and the letters "CLETR".

I have one of those as well from my challenger which is a 3 speaker stereo car; I was told it was some type of amp, but I do believe that it has to do with the speakers.

That is called a Stereo Crossover Box. It's used with 3 speaker (and 5 speaker set-ups).

I've had, sold and repaired these. Basically it takes a sample signal from the right and left stereo outputs to produce a signal for the center speaker. There's also a unique wiring harness to facilitate that box/setup.

Thank you to both JayBee and 70Chall440!  I have no need for this box so if anybody is in need of one for their car, let me know. My radio doesn't work at all and I'd much rather listen to the motor than the radio while driving.
