Another question with this CD player. I saw that you have an option for a CD changer but does it have to be a Subaru one. Has anyone been able to put a name brand Player in? If so where is the connectors for it and how hard was it to install.
Thanks for any help you can give me with this problem.

If you can send me a pic of your radio, I'll look through the stack of old OEM radios at work and see if I can find one. I might also have a panasonic changer. I'll see if I can get them to work.

You might contact Crutchfield Inc, http://www.crutchfield.com/ to see what they have to fit a Subie. The tech guys there are really sharp to know what car stereo will fit what car. They are very helpful to talk with on the telephone.

H6240AS220 (CD magazine - GT LMTD)
Does this mean that there's another CD changer that's supposed to fit my '99 Limited? It's already got the subwoofer (H6300AS030) under the driver's seat, wonder if that makes any difference...

I went to a local shop and bought a nice Sony in dash radio/CD/MP3 radio. Since it plays MP3's I can now rip my CD's to my computer as MP3's and make an MP3 disc. I pop that into the CD player and voila, I have a CD with 10 or 11 CD's on it. I can now drive for 10 hours with only one CD in the player and I can jump from artist to artist just like I had 10 CD's in a changer.
Not only is this more convenient, I don't have to have my original CD's in the car to get stolen or ruined. Presently, I carry three MP3 CD's that have 30 CD's recorded on them. The sound is much better with the aftermarket unit as well.
The only thing you will need to install the palyer is a wiring harness adapter for a subaru. Best Buy has them for 20.00. If you can't find one, let me know and I can sell you one that I have. Once you have that, installation is "plug and play".
Hope this helps.

via FM to the P117.
That kinda defeats the purpose of digital music, no? Why not get the aftermarket with a changer? Then you could have like 210 CDs ripped to MP3! Or, if you're hellbent on keeping the factory, get the in-dash 6 disc changer like I have in my '02. Heck, if the price is right, I'll sell you mine!

I have a very simple solution to this problem. I too wanted to be able to have more than one cd in the changer so I didn't have to fumble about with them while driving.
I went to a local shop and bought a nice Sony in dash radio/CD/MP3 radio.
That's what I did, and that's what got my car broken into. Unfortunately, they couldn't get the stereo out of the dash and ended up bending the stereo frame and cracking the faceplate support, rendering the unit useless. And no, the faceplate wasn't in the car, they can get replacement faceplates easily enough that it doesn't matter. $300 stereo, $150 window, 1 day off work to go to the junkyard for a used window and install the window (and just my luck it was raining), $50 for the console plastic and cupholder they ripped out.
So I put the stock radio back in and wired the AUX port for an iPod. $30 for the DIN plug, wires, jack, a switch to enable the AUX port... and the security of knowing that thieves won't see anything worth breaking in for.
I just picked up a '99 SUS, and am looking to wire the iPod to the AUX port. I happened to be in CC today and saw a bunch of random harness adapters, and was looking to see if anything might fit the AUX port. Yeah, I know I can buy two molex adapters, but if there's an adapter that might be close I'll give it a try. Just looking at the pictures by dpdemay to check the sizing of the port.
