first stay out of beastbuy,circus city and wallyfarts.
Go to a LOCALLY owned car audio store.
Schosce, Blitz-safe, Peripheral, etc all make Head unit adapters that make
it a PLUG IN installation.
: Hi all! The CD player in my in-dash Delco-Bose system in my 96 SS is
: dieing fast. I really don't have the money or desire to replace
: everything. In fact I like the factory Bose speakers. I'm thinking
: about an aftermarket headunit unit that will support MP3s and maybe XM
: radio and CD changer in the future.
: Circuit City says no problem there's a harness for $30ish that adapts
: the dual line-outs from any good quality (Alpine or Pioneer) head unit
: to the factory Bose amplified speakers. Any word on if this is any
: good? Does it sound and look ok with the mounting kits they sell?
: What they are trying to sell me are the Pioneer HEHP5500MP (320ish
: installed out the door with taxes, harness, and kit) or the Alpine
: CDA9807 (430ish installed out the door with taxes, harness, and kit).
: Any opinions? I've always liked Pioneer for their reception but it's
: been a long time since I bought a head unit.
