Default Stereo install

Looking to get a '95 SE, curious about getting an aftermarket cd player in there.

Also, how are the stock speakers?

This is liable to get moved to the Audio forum, but....

The install is pretty dang simple. The dash cover just snaps off (be careful, tho, you can break the tabs pretty easily) then it'* just three screws....

Trying to mount an aftermarket stereo flush to the dash involves a little trimming inside the dash, but it can easily be done.

Less that one hour or one beer for the whole job....

The speakers will depend on how they were treated previously and what you are expecting out of them. My stockers get pretty dang loud without distorting, but I'm old. Loud to me and loud to the younger crowd have varying definitions.

Dang-it...
Just give me time, and I'll eventually figure out where to put these threads!


I'm glad to hear it'* easy to get into the dash. My old Saturn was easy as pie, then I got my probe and that was hell to work with. :(

How about looming wires through the car? any difficulties?
