Re: Upgrading/replacing 164 stereo system?
Willing, where are you from? You quote price in USD so I'm wondering if you're maybe stateside. Does that mean you don't actually have the standard stereo fitting with the pulldown cover? First thing you would need to do is buy an adaptor which I know are available. Let me know and I'll dig out the link if this is your case.
I replaced my door speakers with a set of Pioneers and actually made a hole in the door trim to get them out and sounding better than through plastic. I also had the rear shelf with the puny little speakers on the sides so I had to cut up my rear shelf to get some decent speakers in there. The plan was to replace this shelf with the updated one which had proper rear speaker mounts in but I killed my 12V and bought the 24V. Now don't want to do any chopping up in it so am looking at the best options that will fit the standard sizes. I will be measuring the spaces available and will probably post it on my site along with other hints and tricks for the 164 soonish.
