CD Changer for GT3?


Recommended Posts

Still on the hunt for an audio upgrade for my GT3. I tracked my GT3 for a couple of years, but am off the track now due to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident. The GT3 has been and will remain a street car. I've used it on a couple of longer trips, and would like to expand the audio options I have in it.

The car now has the CDR-23 AM/FM/CD player installed. I'd like to keep things as stock as possible. I'm thinking about:

1. CD changer - I need the CDC-4, MOST. Anyone know if the cable to hook up the changer is already there? Is an amp needed? If so, is there one in place?

2. XM radio - this will require a new radio, or an aftermarket unit that I could hide in the glovebox, I guess.

3. Connectivity to MP3 player - I do not have an iPod. I have a Creative Zen Vision:M. I tried the Belkin FM modulator connection, but it doesn't work very well. Anyone try the Scosche FM-MOD02? Is this a DIY install?

I'm not looking for a hi-fi solution. I'm an older guy, retired from the military where too much time in noisy aircraft and under artillery fire has left my hearing a little impaired. Besides, the GT3 is too noisy for a high-end solution, IMO.

Not sure if you ever pulled the trigger on new audio but here's what I did for my GT3. I bought a Kenwood KDC 995 (didn't even think about waiting for the 996, HA) and had it installed using the stock speakers. The head unit has single CD, iPod, Pandora, Bluetooth and XM ready. Easy 150 dollar install at the shop and it is REALLY easy to reinstall the crap CDR-23 if you sell the car. Sounds pretty good even with the stock speakers and the iPod makes the cd changer obsolete. Bluetooth works well despite the louder cockpit of the GT3. You can customize the color in the LCD panel so it exactly matches the orange of the rest of the lighting... only about 400 bucks for everything too. Just my 2 cents.
