    Default up grade my stero

    I have a 94 burban that is very plain jane, it has 2 speakers in the dash and 2 in the rear roof, it has a plain ole am/fm , and to be honest it sounds terrible, sounds like a ole transistor am radio, so I want to upgrade, I would like a am/fm -cd, that will hook up to my exsisiting wiring,and fit in the opening correctly, and i would prefer a GM radio if at all possible, and I would also like to upgrde my speakers , but again I would like the speakers to mount where the exsisiting speakers are without a bunch of cutting ,any ideas would be appreciated , thanks

    All companiesmake speakers that will fit in the stocl locations without cutting. As far as the radio, if you want to change it out to sound better you should in my opinion change it to an after market radio. the options that are offered are far better and dash kits will make any radio fit. Good luck man.

    I have had excellent results with alpine and kenwood aftermarket decks. For highs in the stock speaker locations, i prefer rockford fosgate or memphis audio.

    If you have the same interior I do, then I don't think you can get a CD player in the spot of the stocker. Check crutchfield as mentioned, they sell kits that will replace part of the dash where the two center vents are that will allow you to put a single din sized radio in. They also sell a block off plate if you want to remove your stock radio.

    Hey good stuff man, hope that it is enough, I know that once I start to change things it's a snowball effect.

    +1 on the snowball effect of modding a ride.

    Good to hear you got it all sorted out, I love Crutchfield. Let us know how it turns out. Some pics would be cool too.

    +2! I started off replacing blown door speakers, then I wanted them louder so I hooked up an amp, then I needed an aftermarket deck for preouts and a remote switch.. now I want some bass...

    the stero was a breeze .Crutchfield sent directions that were so easy to follow that my 12 year old son did alot of the work and we were done in about 1 hour, but like blue Z71 said , now I need some bass, so next will probably be a powered sub woofer that I can stick under the seat. I didn't realize it but all 4 stock speakers were blowed out mostly from age looks like, but I also got the exact same size speakers so they would fit without any modifacations keeping with the stock look.
