the best way to add a sub with your stock stereo is to get a line out converter with an aftermarket amp, and aftermarket sub. you have to run new power and ground to the aftermarket amp for it to work properly. you can use to the stock sub signal for the line out converter. the stock system is really weak. the stock amp is really small and doesn't put out much power, your better off not trying to steal anything from it, cause there not much to steal!!

does anybody knows if a 6/9 speakers will fit in with no problems or too big? I have set of 4 with nice amp and just curious if it will fit.

Unless those are extremely extremely high quality 6x9 I wouldn't trade them. With an aftermarket deck our stocks are great imo...Infiniti makes killer highs, I can crank mine up extremely loud without any distortion, and still hear them through my single 15...maybe I got lucky, but for everything I know about audio, I've always liked inifitiy's highs...

Do you need the part number for the stock sub or the specs (measurements, output, etc.)?

An aftermarket head unit, depending on which one you buy, is usually going to have a dramatic improvement in sound quality over the stock unit.
I run a lower end Pioneer with the stock amp to power the cabin speakers and a completely seperate circuit with another amp powering 2 Sony 12's.
The stock amp and the cabin speakers are pretty impressive when cranking the system.
Definitely need a different sub system to accent these awesome cabins.

About the dash trim for the touch screen monitor/dvd and the hvac relocation:
Contact "chowetime" for the double din surround.
As for the hvac, I heard somewhere on here that you can use that from one of the Galants. I'll have to find it and post it later.
Cheers

So I bought a HU off crutchfield with the harness but it was telling me that the harness doesn't have a ground or something so I need to find a good grounding point on the car and do it myself. Where would be a good place to ground my HU?

Bolt the ground wire into the frame or a piece of metal that's connected to the frame. The two bolts directly behind the head unit worked just fine for me.

I am about to take the plunge and replace my head unit (likely with this model but had a couple quick questions:

1) How much of a marked improvement will just the HU make?
2) I have not torn apart my car yet so if someone would indulge. Is the stock HU non-amplified and the factory amp is located under the passenger seat?
3) Will the stanadard harness you get from Crutchfield go directly to the amp?

Hopefully someday, if the car lasts (I have 104k on the OD now) I will replace the amp and speakers but I am trying to stick to a strict budget. But when I get to that stage:

1) Is there any good aftermarket amp that will fit in the same space as the stock amp?
2) Is the current sub enclosure worth keeping at all? I know it's recommended to just dump it but I like to keep things as stock looking as possible and not have to put money into a replacement enclosure. And to be frank I am now 35 and just want some nice responsive bass, not something to win SPL competitions.
