--------------B9B2183EEA358CA798CFFF96 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit I recently wanted to install an amp and two 12" Blaupunkt Subs in my car, and unfortunately I found out that it might be a little difficult. I removed the head unit and found that there are no pre outs or RCA outputs (the L and R outs) . I have a '95 900SE, which means that there is an extra 80 watt amp that powers the speakers in the front doors, since your's is an SE too then it should have that amp too. That amp is connected to the head unit on the upper right-hand side of the stereo by what I think was an 8-pin connector. I have no idea if you can get an adapter or make one to plug in other amps. I don't know if you're going to have it professionally installed, but if you or the installers want to look at the stock premium stereo amp to see if there are any in/outs there, it's located, I think, behind the glovebox. As for CD-players. I bought an aftermarket Clarion CD-Changer. You, unfortunately can't use any Clarion cd-player, you have to get either the RDC-634 or the CDC-635 model. This is because those cd players are the only ones that the prewired Saab connector cable will fit. The RDC is cheaper than the CDC because it has a digital output, but otherwise there is no real difference in sound quality. The only thing about these cd-players, as well as with the stock Saab cd-players, is that you can't play burned cd's on them. The prewired cable is located behind the carpet on the left side. The cable should be either almost next to and under the power antenna or near the floor. The cable is covered with a black rubber tip and is bundled with some other cables. If you're going to install the cd player yourself--> To remove the carpet, you have to take apart the speaker assembly, and then pull out the carpet until you can see and reach down into that area. Anyways, I hope this helps! Chris N.
