After discussion on the "audio" topic and as my car is a '96 RDM wagon, i post here these questions:
- What car stereo (head unit) do you have if you switched to aftermarket stereo ?
Pioneer ? Kenwood ? Alpine ?
- Do you have installed it in the original location with a "GM dash kit" ?
- Or do you have bought a special unit (1 1/2 or 2 DIN, see the post "Legacy" in the audio section) ?

Thanks

I still have my stock head unit, but I want to install a stock Impala SS head unit w/CD player. It's my favorite head unit simply because it has the speed-controlled volume feature. It's going to be a pian, though, because not only is the fit not 100%, but the wire bundles are in no way/shap/form close to one another. Plus, an additional wire has to be run from the unit to the PCM in order to make the SCV functional.

I have a cheapo Panasonic deck with a GM dash kit, it was just to get me by. My car had a tape deck no cd and there is nothing worse than have to rewind and rewind to hear your favorite song again.
JC Whitney has these great ones that are made just to fit the gm dash, they are wide to fill the hole but the depth is short.
They look the best IMO with a stock dash now if you do a custom dash the other ones can look pretty good too. I do not like the way mine sticks out at all

Single DIN Alpine CDA 7995. With some minor mods behind the dash, the install is very nice and flush.

Link to thread on it

Eclipse 7002, flip up screen control unit. You must add components to this unit, i.e. cd changer, dvd player, GPS navigation, etc. Size of single din unit. I believe Eclipse makes a double din model with touch screen.

Thatd be the AV-8533 and the AV-3423 units with 7" flipout and dvd/mp3 which are just DIN sized. They had 2DINs but discontinued them. They have 2DIN units over-seas in Japan but not over here yet. Supposedly going to have them this year in their AVN series. Ive seen in a few pictures from the CES show early January.
