    2000 Cadillac Catera - Bose Stereo...

    Hi all.

    In the development stages of my carputer, and although I am on track with planning the computer/display side of things I am running into some issues with the audio.

    I am a complete newbie at car audio, and I have done a TON of research for my car and still am having problems.

    I want to run out from my sound card and to an AUX IN so the audio is fairly decent. Simple enough for most, evidently for me it is a NIGHTMARE.

    My Bose system in the Catera has no AUX IN. Ok, I hear that I can get an adapter since my car has an OPTION for a CD changer which I do NOT have. Nope, it seems that nobody makes an adapter to use the Changer as an AUX IN.

    Here is the next confusing part. I go to a car audio store today and plead my case. Guy seemingly has no idea what I am talking about and says he cannot find ANY HEADUNIT anywhere that will work with my car.

    I have to say this is BS, but he was typing in his little computer and came up with no options for me to get an AUX IN that I can use in my car.

    Please give me some direction here, as mentioned, I am a complete novice at car audio, so please keep this in mind with your answers.

    I simply must be able to put an aftermarket HU in this car but when the guy at the store says no, you start to wonder!

    Thanks in advance, great resource...

    Because your radio is not flat, but rather curved on the front, finding a shoud might be a little tough, but it looks like a double din. Hard to say though. A single din unit should fit for sure though. One thing for sure, it wont be fun. I would search a little more for the plug, but I dont know if you will find anything. And try a different store. Ask them if they could install a single din radio into your car. Then, if they say "sure," come back here and we can help you find a good one to install.

    Might wanna look here and ask this guy...

    Good luck!


    Edit: This guy has a shroud that looks more store bought

    I would just look around the cardomains page for help I guess

    It is indeed double DIN, but my TS will be going there anyway. Not much fun fabricating the bezel, but I am going to try and put my impatience aside. That being said, I finally found something!

    AUX2CAR with an adapter for a 2000-2001 Catera.

    Sounds like it should work... Thanks for the links too...
