Thread: Radio set-up
04-09-2005 08:24 AM #1
Although I have an original radio installed, which is working really fine, I want to add a modern one. So I want to keep the orig. one in the place where it is installed at the moment, as well as keeping it working.
So now my qestion is: has someone done this before? Where did you hide the radio or did you replace the orig. one? How did you solve the speaker problem. 'cause mine only has one speaker (over the speedometer) and one (not original one) mounted on the hatrack (behind the rear seats, under the window).
I don't want to set up a show performance audio installation, but I want to have descent sound, which means, a modern CD/MP3-player (most likely black), with 2 front, 2 rear speakers (2 or 3 way) and maybe a (small) subwoofer-box in the trunk.

Re: Radio set-up
i have heard that it is possible to mount 6x9's facing forward under the rear seats. that should give you decent bass with an amp.
my 72 bavaria has 4" speakers in the kick panels and it sounds fairly well.
i don't know about relocating the head unit, though.

My Radio set-up
I have a 3,3L automatic and a factory installed becker Grand prix with only the radio receiver( no cassette player....).
When the radio loss its will to live , I looked at this site:
Belgium autoradio enthusiast , it's in french , but search for MP3 stuff
I removed the radio, I made the connector/adapter for Mp3 Player and I re-bolt the radio.
The results are:
The car seems original
You will only notice the wire/adapter when the golvebox is open
You will receive good signal despite I still have 3 original speakers,
You will listen to good music, if MP3 file-rate is good( always over 192kbps ).
The Din connector, the wires and the MP3-jack costed me about 3-4 euro, the MP3 player was a gift....
This is the solution if You like to keep the car as original as possible...
Hope this helps
