[xj] Best " drop in" replacement radio CD player? '85 xj6, SIII

In reply to a message from Dr Gregory Andrachuk sent Tue 7 Oct 2003:

Now this might do! But alas, no late models (1990-ish) here in the
States to pick from…Maybe I’ll look on ebay. Were those the
Alpine branded units??

Thanks Dr. G. and all others who took the time to respond.–

Or, you could fit the much better 86 to 1990 Series III unit (and a
boot-mounted FM modulator CD unit).

They were Jaguar-branded units made by Alpine, as indeed were the very last
Series III units with remote CD stack (1992).

Hmmm. Would the 1992 model drop in? (only the Brits could have made
such a convoluted mess of all that mounting hardware!)–

Hi
How do you make the antenna work if you don’t have the original
radio/cassette unit?
Thanks

Phil:

I have installed several aftermarket radios in my Jags, and if
memory serves, they are all wired for power antennas. I’m not sure
if only the white wire controls the antenna power, or if there is
another, but that (those) would be connected to the appropriate
antenna wire(s) on the aftermarket unit. Perhaps others will chime
in.

Yes, our SIII antenna/relay works fine with the one wire from the Sony I put
in (marked “ant”).–

Thought I’d add my two cents. I was recently turned on to the new
XFM (satellite) units and they appear to be relatively inexpensive
for the technology involved.

I’m drooling to install one of these.–
