Does anyone in here by any chance know the size of the speakers in the srt-4 for the front and back?? Most are 6" in front and 6x9's in the back, but i just want to make sure. I know someone in here had the owner's manual, ebbtide I think it was?? Does it say in there by any chance? If anyone actually KNOWS the sizes of the speakers that would help a lot, thanks :D

Its the same as the other Neons 3 1/2's in the dash, between 5 1/4 to 6 3/4 (anything you want) in the front doors and 6x9s in the back. I'm ichly on getting my system in this too :)

If ya put a system in there, make sure you get an alarm system. Neons are easy to get into, very easy. I had my stuff ripped off out of my old neon, it sucked :cry:

What is this head unit?

:?
Does anyone know if this is a 4 or 6 disc in dash changer, or is it just a head unit with changer controls? I know all the RT's and others with a 6 disc changer is put in the lower hole. Someday we may actually get all the deatails of everything on the car instead of guessing. You would think with them being built they would publish the final specs.

The pic shows the standard single disc unit. It's the same one I have in my '01 Neon.

SUBS

If you're getting an SRT then you may want to pass up on subwoofers. They'll just slow you down. But the interiors could be swapped.

What I don't understand is why do they take all that space for a radio/cd player? If you look at the majority of car stereos on the market, they are all a basic compact rectangle shape. Is there a reason for using a larger radio or did they have extra space to fill? I realize I can customize mine when I get it and add whatever head unit I want. Just wondering....

Grunge,

Lemme guess.... You've never looked in a Toyota Camry, have you? I believe they started coming out with larger than normal in-dash radios so they could add features without running up the price too much. The costs associated with the miniaturization of components makes a smaller unit more expensive. A standard radio is considered DIN size. The Neon uses a "DIN and a half" size radio and some Japanese vehicles use a "double-DIN" sized unit. More room to add tape and CD, equalizers, larger displays, and the extra space required for amplification of the in-dash.

I see where you're coming from. I understand the extra space for added goodies. It still seems a little impractical to have added station tuner/volume control nobs and balance/treble/base sliders taking up space when you could have it all compact on a normal sized stereo. From what you said with the Neon having a DIN and 1/2 size, I should be able to put my own radio along with something below it. I'll be happy with that.

Funny that you would ask this. I used to be a new and used car salesman and I have sold Fords, Lincolns, Chevys and Dodges. Believe it or not, but domestic (not sure about foreign) car manufactures do a lot of polling to get opinions from the public so they can design for the majority. One thing that frequently was brought up was that the knobs and buttons were to small for a woman operate when she would were gloves to drive in the winter time. So if you notice the buttons and knobs on OEM radios are much larger than aftermarket head units.

Thanks for the information. I can understand why people would want larger nobs and buttons so they can keep their eyes on the road when they are driving.

Thats why you get a remote for your headunit. Best 25 bucks I have ever spent. :lol:

I agree 100%.

I guess I'm making something out of nothing. I just remember the good old days when I could buy a stereo, slide out the old one and replace it with the new one without a gaping whole underneath.

I guess I was hoping to use the Kenwood that I have in my closet. I had it in my old car for a month before I got my Sentra and with the dash layout, I couldn't fit it in there. I got it when they were upgrading the model and I got a really good deal on it. I'll check out Crutchfield. I'll probably end up selling the Kenwood and buying something new. Thanks for the info.

What do you mean by 3 1/2's in the dash?? And you're sure that 6 1/2's would fit in the doors and that they're 6 x 9's in the rear?

the second gens (if you hadnt noticed :p ) have full frame windows making them considerably harder to get into than the 1st gens. now more on par with most other cars (having full frame doors).
still an active alarm with some sort of pager or something might be a good idea as this car may attract unwanted attention while it sits unsupervised.
