If you replace the rear deck speakers and put in a small amp & subwoofer (in the trunk)...your system will sound A LOT better. It'* an easy job. The details on how to do it have been posted several times over on the Audio forum.

Default head unit replacement

as much as I love my 2000 SLE. I hate the radio. Factory sounds fine but when you go to upgrade to aftermarket its a pain in the ***. (I use to install stereos for a living)

When you replace the head unit you have to zip tie your wiring harness to factory ribbion cable. You have to get an VW antena adapter or an 6ft antenna extension (better in my opinion. hook it where the antenna comes into the car) You also have to cut out part or most of your plastic dash (not visible) especially if you install an indash DVD. Have to be very selective when picking out a dash kit. You also have to use a wire from the ignition harness for ignition sence your car doesn't produce enough power to turn an aftermarket radio on.

Although getting the radio out of the dash is very easy.

Like any non stock mod there is always a compromise. Some compromises are weighted higher than others.

I know this is an older thread, but my rear speakers started buzzing a few weeks ago, so getting around to changing them. I pulled the 6x9'* out (pain in the *ss). I think they were meant to go in and never be replaced. Wound up having to trim the package tray since the holes were much smaller than 6x9 around in order to get the old speakers out and get the new ones in. Turns out, the new ones won't fit into the same mounting spot because they are much bulkier on the outside diameter than the originals. (project for another day)

So I did get my 5.25 out of the rear doors and on my way to the local Circuit City for replacements. Looked in the owners manual to see if there was a watt rating on the Bozo head unit (Bose cheapo'd out for GM), but no luck. My only fear is I'll get some hi-watt speakers that the head unit will be unable to drive. Anyone have suggestions?
