Ok, so I thought I was over the whole sound system phase. But I just recently got the change to pick one up and I got to say I'm pretty exited about it lol. Anyways, I was wondering if I would need any type of converter for my stock stereo since it doesn't have RCA connection, as far as know anyways. I know I had to get one for my previous car because stereo was also stock but I just don't know about the Versa. Can anyone elaborate on that, thanks.

Just bought a new receiver from crutchfield.com. They will tell you what fits and include the option to order the wires/antenna connectors. My radio was a single din and the Versa takes a double din. So, they sent an install kit with a compartment to fill the empty space.

Do NOT get Pyle, their headunits are piles of crap. it had a pretty crappy OS running on it and it didnt even fit in the double din slot...being a solid half an inch taller than the OEM.

Honestly your best bet is to just get an aftermarket head unit. Preferably orange or red to match the dash lights. I have a Kenwood and love it. If your considering upgrading from stock speakers, you may want to think about hooking up a 4 channel amplifier. They arnt too pricey and give your speakers much better sound. Just don't buy speakers from Walmart. Boston Acoustic or JL Audios are good choices, and offer excellent sound quality.

As for subwoofers, same thing. Don't screw around. Get something you'll really be happy with. My diamond sub is rediculous. I can't turn it up all the way because I'm afraid ill blow my windows out!

I used these to get out of my nav unit to my 4 channel amp.

Amazon.com: Kicker 09ZISL Z-Series Speaker Level .5 Male 1 Female ROHS Compliant Twisted Pair Audio Interconnect Cable: Car Electronics

Just make sure that the amp can take a high level input. That is what I am running. From what I can tell about my nav unit, the frequency response curve is pretty flat. I did not run a post processing unit out of my nav system.

You could also run a line output converter to an amp. Never used those before.
