The Citroen amp (or amplifier for its full title), is a key part in a vehicle’s sound system and as the name suggests, it’s job is to amplify low level audio signals so that they can be used by the speakers to generate sound.
There are two types of amplifier and their quality differs considerably. The first type is a basic factory amplifier which is built in to the car audio head unit, which is used to power a small number of speakers. The other is called an outboard amplifier. This Citroen amp is separate to the car audio head unit and is capable of providing a much better sound and power more speakers than the head unit amplifier.
Signs that the Citroen amp is faulty would result in either no sound or poor sound quality. This could include hissing, cracking or background noise coming through the speakers. This could be a wiring issue, or could be something more specific to the amp. Other damage to the Citroen amp can be caused by the amp overheating. This can be rectified by increasing the airflow to the Citroen amp. An unblocked fan should always be present.
- Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
- The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
- Citroën cars have been put through their paces and all in the name of advertising. Citroën vehicles have trekked huge distances for promotional reasons, including expeditions across the Sahara, throughout Africa, all over Asia, and even across Alaska.
