Default 97 Honda Prelude Head Unit. Are there potential complications with replacing all speakers

and head unit? THe Prelude has this silly acoustic feedback system (like who really needs that when you have a volume control), and amp in the back that adjust the rear 6x9 speakers according to feedback data received from some microphones near the rear speakers (or something like that). I just want to change out the factory head unit and all the speakers. Are there going to be potentially complicated rewiring to change all of this?

I can't really install head units, etc., but i don't want to get scammed by a car audio installation person either. any advice?

I have the non SH model, if that makes a difference.

I'm about to do the same thing and as I was told there are a couple of things. First off, as I understand it, aftermarket speakers will not make an exact fit in either the front or the back. The 6x9 in back probably wont sit flush to the deck and may need some spacers under the grilles. The front is even more involved as they ( 6 1/2 round) just wont physically fit depth-wise. Also, all new speaker wire has to be run as well.

I dont have all the answers yet as I am trying to figure this out myself as I am not the handiest guy either sorry to say.
