Default aftermarket radio

Ok, so I want to get an aftermarket radio but I've been confused because of the whole harness thing, I currently have a 6th gen monte with the factory amp, factory radio, and aftermarket speakers. I want to get a double din radio I have a few in mind, so my question is how would I go about that?? Thanks in advance

Best bet is to checkout http://crutchfield.com as they're a good info resource, write down the part numbers and then buy them elsewhere as they can be a little pricey.

just remember yo get any extra adapters to keep the whole system working
the door chimes and wheel controllers must be hooked up right and the onstar crap as well

I don't use on star and I don't care that much for door chimes, the only thing I do want to work is the steering wheel controls, I chatted with someone at crutch field and I feel as though they where try a sell me all these unnecessary things, I was wondering do I have to make any adjustments to the dash as well

Shouldn't for a double din as the factory radio is a double din, but you do need atleast accessories. One for the wheel controls and then a wiring harness to adapt the radio to the car.

You can install a double din and still use your steering wheel controls. It's a part made by a company called Pac....Google steering wheel controls
