is the depth for installing an aftermarket stereo in the first generation intrepids only 6 1/8" as it says in the crutchfield catalog? what would be a good replacement for the head unit and maybe a subwoofer for the trunk? what would fit?
my suggestion for door and 6x9's go with alpine or polk audio. i think (opinion) that kicker makes some of the nicest subs, JL audio isnt bad either. for amps go with Rockford fosgate or MTX and make sure you wire it all with montser cable.
you can get the wiring adapter at most any electronics dealer, or best buy, circuit city, etc. the stock chrysler stereos are set up in the following fashion, from the wires to the head unit: 14 wires lead in to 2 harnesses, one black and one gray. then harnesses plug straight into 2 slots in the back of the head unit, one black and one gray. by buying an adapter kit you get the receiver end of the harnesses but the other ends are already seperated and ready to be spliced to the corresponding wires leaving the replacement head unit. if you didn't buy the adapter you'd have to cut the two harnesses off and then splice unmarked wires...with the adapter kit you get pre-cut wires that are labelled plus instructions, plus then you can always put the stock head unit back in if you sell the car. for 11 bucks it's worth it.
