LT's electronic's upgrade

Have a 1999 LT and love it, but am wondering about upgrading the radio and speakers. I would really love to have my Ipod run through the system, but do not want something that is intrusive, would prefer the ability to run it through existing radio, or replace the existing one with one that looks factory. Also need new rear speakers as one of mine seems to be bad.

Proverbs 24:10 If you falter in times of trouble, how small is your strength!

Take a look at this post:

I can't help you with your speakers but try searching for "rear speakers" and you will come up with some good reading.

Re: LT's electronic's upgrade

Hi, neighbor.

I don't have any experience with speakers. You might want to consider an intercom system and put the audio into your helmet.

There are a couple of options for integrating an iPod into your system. If you '99 has the CD changer, you can try the DICE or the similar product sold at Best Buy (I forget the name but it's been discussed on the forum). The iPod replaces the changer to pipe the audio into your factory stereo. Charges the iPod, too.

The low-buck solution is to use a cassette adaptor to connect the iPod. Doesn't charge the unit and you can't use the handlebar controls to change songs, but the volume control works and hey, it's cheap.

I had an IceLink to connect my iPod, but eventually bought a Zumo and use its XM radio and MP3 player for my audio.

Gotta have tunes.
