Sony GT300 head


My name is Andy, and I drive a Laguna II 1.8 on a 54' plate. This is the latest of several Renaults I've owned (12,14,16,18, Fuego, Megane hatch, and Megane coupe were the others) and I'm very pleased with it so far.

Having browsed through the previous threads on the subject, I would appreciate some further advice on upgrading the basic "tuner list" stereo system. There are 8 speakers in all, with the front tweeters mounted on the dash. I'm just looking to achieve more power and better sound quality by changing the head unit and speakers, without getting involved in cutting parcel shelves, and mounting subs.

I'm interested in the Sony GT300 head unit, and Alpine SXS 1357 component speakers. Do the speakers plug into the existing wiring or are adapters needed? (I don't want to cut the wires). What is a crossover box, and must it be wired differently to the existing set-up? How do aftermarket tweeters fit into the cavities on the dash, and rear doors? Is there an available head unit that the stalk control & display will plug straight into?

Many thanks in advance, and congratulations on a great looking forum.

Hello Andy,welcome to the forum.

I'm no I.C.E expert,but hopefully someone with some knowledge will be along in a minute!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
