    Stereo Upgrade

    Hi so I'm thinking at upgrading my cat stereo been looking around for a while now and came across this

    http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/vie...d=350799802088

    Now I have a few questions and was wondering if anybody could help me

    1. Would this affect the sound quality?

    2. Do I need anything extra to be able to fit it (I only have a 1din stereo at the moment)

    3. If i do need anything else, do you know what I will need and where I could get it.

    I hope you can help me, thank you in advance

    1. Will probably improve sound quality if anything, centre tweeter will stop working (rubbish anyway) also supposedly rear speakers aren't so loud but could always balance this out with eq I'd of thought or upgrade speakers and amp them

    2. As you have single din yes, new climate control (or trim existing), new cage, etc, plenty have done the conversion and there's tutorial's if you search

    3. Adapter wires and fascia, probably goes without saying.

    Haven't trusted unbranded radio's but if it's decent please review.

    Thanks for that, it's really helped.. Never used un branded stereos before myself but I thought having a detachable tablet in my car might be cool
