Default Getting a new '91 Honda Prelude radio installation?

With my old speakers and radio, only one out of four worked. Now I have four new speakers, and the only same one works consistently. the other three are either at half volume sometimes and silent other times. the circuit city guy said that there is something wrong w/ the outputs on the radio/stereo. if i bought a new stereo would i be able to install it myself (save $50).can i get a used stereo? do only some stereos fit?

depends if ur stereo was stock. if you buy a manufactured radio theny you might have to purchase a kit to install it if ur already had a manufactured radio simply take it to where ur gonna purchase it n try it out,if its a used radio take ur old one off its 2 cables power the black one and the muilty colored is speakers n see if the connection fits

all stereos will fit. do not cut the original wire harness, buy an adapter harness and connect all the wires from the new stereo onto the adapter harness. there will be instruction with the cross reference on the adapters package. then plug it into the original harness. for Honda's that year the opening of the stereo compartment is a universal dimensioned opening for the standard size stereos. unbolt the stock stereo and remove it, the new stereo should have a sleeve that comes with it. first take care of the wiring and then put the sleeve into the opening and press/bend the locking pins towards the inside of the openings frame. reach in and pull the harness and the antenna cable out then plug it to the stereo. carefully insert and push the stereo into the opening. reach under the dash to pull the harness back further into the dash so the stereo can seat firmly and lock in place onto the sleeve. by these parts, you can find them at any place that sale car audio products. it will work with any stereo. can buy a used stereo but it doesn't come with a manufactures warranty. usually there is always something wrong with a used stereo. try your luck.
