Honda CR-V 2001: How to install CD player?

Asked by Sue Turner

I HAVE a cassette/tuner in my 2001 CRV. Unfortunately, I bought the car before CD players became standard. I'd like to add a CD player, but keep the old system (which includes CD/MD controls). I don't mind if it's a single or multi-disk player, though I'd prefer in-dash. I need advice on compatibility. Honda says the unit is Kenwood, but how do I add a compatible CD component? Is there a good installer who could help me? I'd rather not go to ``car supermarket' outlets who sell lots but can't give advice.

THERE are many sound-system specialists who could advise you on the best way to install a CD player in your CRV. Recently, when I wanted to fit a CD player to my 1997 BMW, I had to go to an aftermarket sound-system specialist because BMW no longer stocked the CD player that was compatible with the factory system. In the end I had to compromise. There was simply no way of doing what I wanted to do. For starters, try Chris Watson at Central Car Radio in Bentleigh.
