Stereo

I am getting ready to replace the stock stereo and speakers in my 1984 325e. (I beleive I have the basic AM/FM casette - I don't have the raised speaker boxes on the back dash or tweeters in A pillar). I searched through these forums and looked at the technical article on Pelican, but am still a little confused.

I keep reading about a common speaker ground and a "fader" on the dash. I don't see a fader on my dash that is seperate from my head unit (the head unit has an "audio" buttom that scrolls through "Base", "Trebble", "Balance" - Left/Right and "Fade" - Front/Back)

My question is (before I start pulling things out) is will I need to run new wire (crutchfiled did not indicate such) or will I be able to just clip off the OEM ends and attached the new speaker connections? Also, I purchased 5 1/4 for the front and 6 1/2 for the rear. Crutchfiled indicated the rear will require new mounting holes to be drilled (true???) These forums indicated no.

Thanks in advance.

Be patient, grasshopper. There's lots of users on here that are all over the world. Someone will have your answer (I don't...sorry, mine had an aftermarket CD player installed before I got the car.) The speaker fader they're talking about is in mine though, it looks like a vent open/close dial that rolls horizontally - I have an '87 325.

Give them time. The guys on this forum are very knowledgeable and really nice dudes.
