Well, for starters, make sure you have the knobs for the heat controls. If you have digital climate controls, you cant add an aftermarket head unit with an adapter.Originally posted by 99GBlue@Apr 11 2004, 07:21 PM
Hello all. I just got my Taurus ('99 Graphite Blue w/ Duractec) a few days ago, and I'm new to these forums, so go easy on me if I ask a dumb question
Anyway, onto my topic. I'm looking into putting a new stereo into the car because the one I have now is completely stock. If I've done my research correctly, the car should have 6x8's all around. Starting at the CD player, I'm gonna go with the Pioneer DEH-7600MP. I have the 7400MP in my Mustang right now, and I love it. For the speakers, I'm planning on Infinity Kappa 6x8's in the rear, but the fronts I'm not sure of. I'm thinking of getting an Infinity Kappa Component set, but I don't know if I should get 6x8's or 6.5's. Would there be any noticeable difference between them, and which would you recommend? Let me know what you all think of my plan so far and please feel free to offer any other suggestions. Thanks.
(some would argue with me on this point, it is possible, but not worth the aggravation or the $$)
If you do have the knobs, you need to get an adapter for the heat controls. Check the classifieds on this site, or search ebay or other places on the web.
A full kit with wiring harness will run you about 70 bucks.
