Yes, it can be replaced by any aftermarket CD head unit but for best results
replace the o.e. speakers because aftermarket head units supply a four ohm
output, and all aftermarket coaxial speakers are also four ohm impedance.
When running wires to new speakers avoid the wires coming off the o.e.
fader. Aftermarket head units have faders built into them. P.
Hi Peter, thanks for the quick response.
I take it that the the OEM Mercedes ones 8 ohm then. I'm hoping any new
head will take 4-8 ohm speakers.
When you say faders, do you mean the radio pre-amp that's located in the
driver's side C-pillar - from what I can see all the wires from the MB
stereo go there first, and then out to all the speakers, so if I were to
change stereos and speakers, bypassing this unit and running all new wires,
I'd pretty much have to take apart every piece of interior trim to do the
job right. Is this correct?
