My CDs are getting chew up now :lol:

 

I'm looking to upgrade my CD Receiver (is that the correct terminology).

I don't even know how to remove the stock unit.

 

All I know for-sure.. is that I will need a new deck frame and the audio harness.

 

I have no clue on brands, setup, cost, etc..

 

My budget is around $400 (start to finish)

 

Share me inputs! :)

How serious are you about audio?
If not that serious a simple entry level Alpine, Pioneer or Eclipse will do you just fine.

i have always been a fan of clarion for head units but that is just me. 400 bux will get you a nice DVD/GPS Double din with installation harnesses


Silence is golden.... But duck tape is silver.......

I have a single din Alpine and I modified the mounting piece to accommodate a scanguage 2 which gives me some nice data and makes it easy to clear the intermittent CEL from the re-pinned XRS ecu  :ph34r:
