Simple Stereo upgrade
Greetings, Skoolies! First post here and a conversion newbie. I am tasked with upgrading the stereo system in our 1999 GMC/Bluebird. Currently installed are ceiling speakers (CRC 2094) and a tape deck radio (CRC-3800A). I am looking to simply replace these components and replace them with larger, louder, higher power, Bluetooth capable, RCA outs for external amp and subs, additional speakers, etc. I've read that I might have a hard time being able to simply swap these components without having to rewire. I simply want to swap if possible. I found an REI CD5000 which appears to be compatible, but is expensive. The speakers are fairly low profile, but figured that is an easy fix by either using a different low profile speaker or using a shim/gasket of sorts to mount outside the ceiling sheet metal. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?!?! Thank you in advance!
