I am in the process of redesigning my dash on my 68 Camaro. I am putting 5 X 2&1/6 inch gauges at the top, moving the heater control to the very bottom where the ashtray was, and trying to put a stereo in the middle. My old Sony (cdx5100) is getting tired. It won't do cd-r/w or mp3. It is starting to skip, time for a new one.
This is how it is wired. The head has two rca preouts. They are connected to two amps behind the rear seat. The Sanyo 200watt powers a 10" sub, the Sony 504x powers a set of 6X9 coaxals on the back parcel deck. The line outs from the head powers a pair of 3.5 inch speaker in the dash where the factory speaker was. I want to replace these speakers with tweeters, and install some 4?5?6? speakers in the kick panels.
My questions are:
Is it possible to purchase a 1/2 high din stereo? It sure would make it easier to fab the center section to replace the aluminum one.
If I have to use a full din sized stereo, What kind should I purchase and how should I wire it.
I would prefer one that is not to gaudy. My idea of perfect is 5 or 6 buttons, display shows time and what I am playing and not a dragon eating a city or some such, and the color of the display is not some weird green or red color. I realize that probably no one makes this, but perhaps I can get some ideas from the "stereo guys" here.
