ive got a ba fairmont ghia. my stacker isnt workin with all cds. so i want to put in an aftermarket player under the icc unit.
just wondering if anyone else has done this. and i just want to run it through the factory speakers and was hoping that there is an input on the ba icc unit.
any info would be much appreciated

ive done this on my xt. i took out the tissue box, and cut the speaker wires to the icc. installed the new cd player where tissue box was, and connected all the snipped icc wires. no need to run new wires to the speakers. run new power cables and earth for new stereo to keep your icc screen power. i also used a piece of mdf to make a false front plate to go around the front of the cd player, and covered it in black vinyl. my new deck had an ipod cable, so i put the ipod cable around the back into the glove box. looks neat and tidy, and can connect my ipod to the cd player and leave it out of the way in the glove box while driving.

^ The factory unit is s**t

Adding a after market head unit is pretty easy, no more difficult than in any other car, just that you can't remove the ICC.

Mine:

I did run new speaker wires for everything (because I replaced all the speakers too).

Image
Blends in nicely with the factory colour scheme. I used the tissue box holder (almost) as is. It required a little cutting and drilling of screw holes to get the 1DIN head unit to fit - otherwise it's like it was made to hold a head unit.

Image
Got the output running to the ICC screen too.

I'm running a 3-way front end, had no choice but to run extra wires.

FYI getting 16ga speaker cable into the front doors is a real PITA.

Why would you want to stuff around and do something like that???

Or at least install the unit straight, or in the GT-P tuck the wiring out of sight...very bodgy looking installs....

Nothing wrong with the factory unit, and with the Alpine upgrades available, they can sound even better.

What wires? The coily one in the second pic goes to my phone charger/holder (from the cig lighter). And I still use the pocket underneath to store stuff.

The stock unit is crap (honestly the stock system in my old EL was significantly better), unless you're happy with a mediocre CD player and FM radio. I've now got DVD, DTV, CD, MP3, FM/AM, Aux input (front mounted camera for when I go to the track), recordable output, a proper equaliser, time alignment, three way front stage, 5.1 output if I want it, normally the rear speakers are disabled, and the centre channel runs my phone hands free, and I'm sound quality winning awards with it.

actually unit is straight just looks off because of camera angle (if you notice the camera wasn't straight)
