The factory radio and CD player in my Riv really sucks.
The head unit will only play certain CDs, even a brand new one is not immune to being rejected. And the slightest disturbance will make it skip. Sometimes it goes nuts when you get towards the last few songs on a CD.
(On a road trip this weekend, it created a very interesting interpretation of a Black Sabbath song. shocked )

Any ways, until I can afford to get a good after market system, I am thinking of getting another stock unit off of eBay for example.
But, will I have issues with security codes if I replace it with a unit that came out of another car?
If so, how do I go about solving them?

Thanks!

Hey Dale,

look at this thread:

http://rivperformance.editboard.com/audio-electronics-f7/help-me-pick-a-new-head-unit-and-speakers-please-t3812.htm

The head unit was $250 and it will work with the factory speakers if you don't want to put the whole system in that I did. I can't get over how happy I am with it. It also adds a bluetooth handsfree to the system, it has a remote mic and uses the front speakers. An awesome head unit and worth the installation effort.

Thanks.
I read that thread before on what you went with, and am thinking of going that same route when the time comes. thumbsup

I bought that exact same head cleaner a couple of months ago, and despite using it several times, it won't cure what ails this player.
It's just mechanically shot.

You know, I sold my Park Ave to my son when I bought this Riv, and I took my good speakers out of it first and put the stock ones back in.
But, I told him he could keep the Pioneer Supertuner I had in the car.
What a mistake! headshot
This factory piece in the Riv has such dull sound in comparison. Seems it's lacking in mid range, and the bass is nowhere near as clean.
I guess I got spoiled by being able to adjust every aspect of the sound to my ear with that Supertuner.

I'm not into sub woofers and all that. In some respects I think some of those systems sound like shit. Maybe it's the music being played, I don't know.

I come from a time when Bass was supposed to be hard and tight, not reverberating and distorted.

Sometimes a simple system comprised of decent quality components is best.

I used to love subwoofers, but not anymore. I have got to say the bass is more than adequate from the speakers I put in. It's obvious they aren't subwoofers, but sounds good and tight and can handle any volume I want to tolerate.

If the radio's security feature is unlocked before Bat power is disconnected from the radio, you will be alright.
So, if you buy from somebody on e-bay make sure you can return it if necessary or if you can trust them to unlock the unit.
Otherwise it should be plug-n-play.
