I have a 2000 SE with the climate/cassette as one unit.The car does not have a cd player option which i really would like to add to the car

so what is the easier and cheaper way to go about this operation.even though i am eletrical engineer the 4-5 F weather limits a long install

i do not want to use a casette adaptor with a cd player .. so any suggestions
how are the RF modulatoe cd chnager are they easy to connect

the car has cd changer functions but not sure on for what purpose?

I wouldn't go with an rf modulator, the sound quality will not be as good as a direct connection. Since you have changer controls already, you could add a Ford or Ford-compatible changer quite easily, but these tend to be expensive (around $300 or so I think). Th other option is to get a kit to replace your current climate/cassette unit. This is what I would do, since the stock unit is really not that great.

With the RFs you are limited to radio quality even playing CDs. If you don't mind radio quality or just plan on running a stock system, it's not a bad choice and easy to install. I didn't like my RF changer too much though, but that's because it was a cheap Walmart brand that broke on me all the time.

Where are you planning to go with the system?

I would have to say that a new HU would be by far the best SQ setup. the frequency range of a stock HU is not nearly as good as an aftermarket changer, so no matter how you connect the two, you are still imited with SQ. for $300 (the cost of a changer that will plug-and-play), you can get a nice HU that will play mp3's and faceplate adapter.
