    Installing a clarion in my Camaro

    If the clarion is a double din, you do know that you will have to trim your bezel or find someone that makes one, right?

    Best thing you can do is lay all new wire for your speakers. Don't you have the Monsoon system? Then there is an amp built into the car.That amp is going to mess with your new signals badly. The amp runs all the speakers except for the tweeters in the door. And those tweeters have built in crossovers. You will want to bypass the amp. The wires in the car are what? 18-24 ga? Those are not gonna help you transfer power to the speakers. And what impedance does the stereo run? You need to match the ohms of the speakers to the ohms that the stereo is putting out. Some hu's have the ability to switch ohm's from 2 to 4. Clarion is a nice deck. Maybe you can do that.

    Metra makes a widely available harness that will plug into the harness on your headunit. You could continue to use the stock monsoon amp with stock speakers and still sound stock. You could replace the stock speakers with component separates (I cut holes to flush mount and angle the tweeters in the door panels above the woofers) using the stock speaker wires to power the woofers and tweeters which will be a massive sound quality upgrade depending on your speaker choice. I used reasonably priced Infinity Reference 6.5" components up front and coaxials in the rear, knowing the coaxials would only repoduce the bass signal they are fed by the monsoon amp. They sound a ton better than the original speakers even with the monsoon amp. Or you could replace it all and run a new headunit, amp, speakers and sub. It all depends on your ears and budget.
