Hi,
I want to remove my original Delco radio/cassete on my '96 RDM wagon and put an aftermarket unit (with CD). While browsing the web i've found "Legacy" double din unit with CD/cassette etc.. and, very important, USA/Europe band switch (i must have the even frequencies as 106.8 or 102)!!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2456117400

Is Legacy a good unit (they're cheap..) ? Feedbacks about this make. I've found also a Pioneer FHP 4000 but the price is x 3 ....
Thanks

nooooo.... no legacy. also the double din wont fit without custom modification to the dash. the regualr general motors is a din & 1/2. you might be better off getting a regular tape player and then a dedicated changer to go along with it.

Wouldn't reccomend Legacy to my worst enemy... and +1 on the Double Din not fitting. It would be a waste to go custom for the double din and cram a Legacy in there.....

No comments on the Legacy, but do realize folks that the 94-96 Roadmaster does have a larger (i.e. Double-DIN) radio opening in the dash [img]smile.gif[/img]

Unhappy

Hi,
Thanks to all for the replies, i was going to make TWO big errors :
- buy a "piece of junk" ,as someone told me,name Legacy. [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]
- buy a double din car stereo (Pioneer, Sony, etc..) which 'll not fit in my 1 DIN & 1/2 dash opening. I was sure that i have a 2 DIN radio

I've found something else (no, itsn't a Pyle ..), i'll post a new inquiry because this has a wrong title now !
So again, thanks ...

Phil : see my reply, you do have a double DIN opening. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that most folks who said otherwise haven't looked that closely at a 94-96 Roadmaster interior

Hi,
I just went from my '96 wagon where i measured the OEM Delco radio: the faceplate of the radio has a height of 95 mm (around 3" 3/4). Note that is the exterior size, not the opening in the dash which is a bit smaller.
So it's a 1 DIN & 1/2 or a 2 DIN ?
