Scott: According to the audio manual from my '90 900 turbo the way it works is the leads go from the radio to the (optional) equalizer. If the equalizer is installed, the signal goes through it and then to the speakers. No equalizer means the signal goes right to the speakers. The manual also implies that the factory Clarion CD play will fit in the same slot as the equalizer and uses the same wiring. Somehow the radio knows when the CD player is installed. Clarion doesn't seem to make this CD player any more. If you go this route you may want to find a used one. Beware though; this CD player uses cartridges for the CD's, even though it only takes one CD at a time. I'm also looking to add a CD player (I've only had the car a week). It has been strongly recommended to me to buy the type of multi-changer players that use an FM signal to connect to the in-place radio. This makes installation easier. Downside is that since the player (usually) resides in the trunk, switching CD's is not as easy as if it's in the dash.
