I am beginning to put my 1600 back together after a hiatus of a few years, and have trying to research examples of anyone who has modified (or modernized) a Roadster's sound system?
To admit off the bat, I'm not all that knowledgeable about sound systems and installations in the first place, but my ideal setup would be to keep the stock AM radio in place while concealing a modern unit in mounted within the glove box. Speakers would either be implemented in the door panels (not sure if I want to tear into those) or behind the seats. I'm not looking to irritate a three mile radius of traffic with a thumping bass, just something adequate for decent to good sound quality within the car.
The other big unknown is a choice of antenna. For years, I have been on and off finding an original antenna, and realize they are without any doubt rare. Has anyone opted for alternatives? I'm trying to return the 1600 to as close as stock as possible, so I'm curious if anyone out there has a good solution that they may have put into use.
I'd love to hear suggestions, thoughts, and opinions on this modification. I'm really starting from scratch with the idea, so any feedback or advice would be much appreciated!
