Sound system alternatives


Recommended Posts

I have seen some discussion about upgrades or replacement. My '89 sound system right now does not make sound. Before it went"real bad" it was popping quite a bit. My choices are to repair. Retrofit a new unit in. Modify existing unit and add a remote cd player.

I would like;

MP3 input ability(universal &/or Ipod)

CD player

Do not need /want;

Cassette player


My question would be, " what has been done " .

If I remember correctly, did you not help me out with an article several years ago....if same same (persons name was Walt), I recall you had a superior Reatta (Red maybe)....please keep it stock if you can.

The stock stereo is not a bad unit and I am sure it could be retrofitted with the gadgets you describe....can get an OEM CD Player (will take some searching and a few hundred for the bezel and head etc)

To keep it as stock as possible and still get the fetures you want, replace or repair the radio brain and add an aux connection. A 1/8" jack fits nicely in the ashtray area. This would give you a audio input that can be used with almost any headphone out device.
