You may run into difficulty finding pre outs for an amp as the stereo is in two parts, the in dash unit and a second box in the boot. This is where the AUX/Line in input is, the speaker outs and tuner/amplifier.
I have spoken to dealers who reckon they can replace the stereo completely but it is a pretty major job if you want to keep the sat nav (if you have it) and the screen.
You can use an amp with high level inputs or fit high/low converters to step down the speaker outputs to line level.
An advantage of the setup is that the speaker connections and a switched live line are in the boot already.
Hope this helps
both my stereo and multichanger are in the dash. all i want to change is the headunit part of it all. theres no pre outs on the cd changer its just normal. im pretty sure renault do a headunit with preouts i just dont know what the model number or brand is? i heard they could do a kenwood unit for it but google doesnt really bring anything up?
