In my wife's Fiat spider, we have an original Fiat-branded radio --
AM-only, mono -- to which I added an iPod line-in.
I'm contemplating doing something similar for the MG and pulling out
the early-90s cassette deck that I have in it now (though it is a
blaupunkt with a line-in, so it works pretty well)
I'll second what was said earlier about using an amplifier. I have
two amps, 4 speakers. Speakers behind the seats use a 50 watt per
channel amp in the trunk; door speakers use a small-ish 30 watt per
channel amp behind the dash. It sounds pretty nice. Amps and
speakers are all ebay. Previous-generation amps aren't "cool"
anymore, but still do the business.
Oh, and I have the packaway top. A fold-down would cover up the
speakers in back!
When I installed the blaupunkt in my car 15+ years ago, the
interference was slight. The back of the radio pressed against the
plastic elbows that direct air to the defroster vents. Install on a
hot day when the plastic is pliable, and you can get away with a
