Well, I just got my new (to me that is) 96 SE and it'* time to start bring it back as it were.
My first priority is to replace the factory tunes.
I've got the factory AM/FM/CD head unit with equalizer and factory speakers. I noticed that the space the radio uses is not a common "din" size hole, so would need an install kit of some kind.
The 6x9'* in the back look pretty wimpy with their tiny magnets and thin paper cones. I haven't pulled the door panel yet to see what the two-piece speakers in the door are like, but I would imagine much the same quality as the 6x9'*.
I've got some equipment in the basement just aching to be used. I've got a couple nice Kenwood amps (one 4-channel @ 280W and one 2-channel @ 120W) and a 9-band EQ with sub controls.
I would like to keep the factory covers for the speakers in place.
Now the questions...
What size speaks can I put in the front doors?
Can I modify the 6x9 holes in the back deck to take subs of some kind and still keep the factory covers or can someone recommend a good 6x9?
Who makes a good mounting kit for the head unit?
Are there line-level outputs on the head unit I could simply hook up to?
Can the steering wheel controls be used with any of the after-market head units?
Okay, I'll stop for now, that should get me going and I don't want to bug too much to start with.
