Once I finish collecting all the parts needed to install the performance sound system, I began wondering about overhauling the sound system in my car a little bit to make it more functional.

What I want is this:



with an auxiliary port installed in it, and hooked up to the performance sound and wired up to a CD-changer (in the trunk).

Now, I was curious as to whether or not this was possible to do and what is needed to do this. What CD changer to use, what harness to use, where to buy all of this, everything.

Winter is coming soon, so I'll have plenty of time to do this if it's a major and costly project.

PS: If anyone happens to know the mounting depth of the speakers in the dash and on the B-Pillars, that'd be greatly appreciated too!

Thanks

CD Changers are obsolete.

Once you have a way to connect an MP3 player of some type that's all you need.

I have my eye on this set up:

For MP3 or satellite input, one more adapter required:

Thanks, I decided to go against the CD changer. I just thought it'd be neat to have, but it'd be adding extra work and money.

And why did you choose to go with the Monsoon unit? What makes it more special?

Thank you for the links, but I'm a little confused on what exactly the second link is for? Why would I need that? Thanks again!

The second link is used to connect an Ipod or satellite receiver to the radio in the first link. If you not plan to connect anything to the radio in the first link then you do not need it.

This link will work for your radio. I just did my radio with EQ, same as yours using these instructions. The CD connector is in a different position but everything else is the same.

I remember that thread and what do you mean "plug-n-play with the wiring and antenna adapters?" Sorry, I'm still learning everything.
And I'm assuming you might be able to do Monsoon units? Or are they different internally? Thanks!

With the adapters you simple take out your existing radio out, plug in the adapters to the existing wiring and antenna and bolt in your new radio.
I haven't tried a Monsoon radio so I can't say if they are different internally but I know the standard radios vary and I have been successful only with a few model numbers.
