View Full Version : Clarion AM/FM CD Stereo replacement

03-01-2007, 08:16 PM
2000 Maristar 230 Anyone know if the connector from the wires to the stereo are model specific?
My Clarion factory supplied CD player is no longer working and I am considering a Sony or Pioneer (recommendations on brands welcomed as well) and I dont want to do any re-wiring.
I hope to do a "plug and play" with the new head unit but I am not a big Clarion fan.

I heart Clarion!

Head units are "plug" specific, so if you wanted to use a different brand, you would have to color for color splice wires to the new plug. You would also obviously have to replace any remotes you had in the system.

While I do love the Clarion Heads for their iPod interface and nice remotes, I understand that people can save some $$ by going with a car unit that may have more features. Just don't count on a car unit lasting seven years like your Clarion marine unit did.
