I finally changed front speakers, and i have better sound, I need to change factory radio, but the problem is that if I do, cd changer in the back wont be able to work, anyone knows what radios support the original cd changer?

Unfortunately no, there is no aftermarket radio will "talk" to the factory cd changer. Since you are upgrading radios anyway, get one that supports MP3's and, on one MP3 disc, you can have more songs than the factory 6 disc will hold anyways. Yeah the factory radio is the culprit. You couldve spent 1000 on the speakers, only to have the stock radio with its 10 watts of 1993 technology. You'll like the sound of your speakers with more/better power from an aftermarket headunit.

i think they are 3.5 i would recomemend audiobahns, get audiobahn's comonponent setup for the front and back then u could have a 12 speaker setup if the 3.5s come with tweeters. To get the best audio performace u will need to get seperate amps and a crossover but I dont know how uch u are willing to spend

I have always liked my Infinitys. Good sound, relatively inexpensive. Go and listen to a BUNCH of different brands, using the same song and preferably with the Alpine you are wanting to fire them. That way you can really get an idea what you are spending you money on sounds like.

i have alpine cd player, not sure on the exact model, but i absolutly love it... i also have mb quart speakers in my car...

word of advice, if your looking for a better base output on speakers, then your searching in the wrong section...

aftermarket speakers are mad for Highs.. if u want the lows, then u have to get a sub...
