98 zj system questions

i have a 98 grand cherokee with the infinity gold system in it and my front right speaker is shot to hell and i wen to my local car stero store and talk to the guy and he told me in order to get "good" sound, which he means better then stock, with new speakers i would have to replace all the wiring and get a new head unit. Is he right? i really dont wnat to replace my head unit because i have the stero controls on the back of my steering wheel. also i have JL speakers in the back from a couple years back and they do sound good but maybe not as good as they can sound. thanks for the help

No, he's sales-pitching. You can replace those speakers and get pretty good sound. You could get better sound doing more but you don't have to replace the head unit. You NEVER "HAVE TO" replace the head unit. You can always use speaker-level outputs for amplifiers and what not. It might not be AS clean as it could be but...

Also, if you ever did want to replace the head unit, you can still retain your factory steering wheel controls as long as you get a radio with remote controls and a steering wheel input converter. (basically plugs into the harness for the steering wheel controls and you can program the remote codes for the functions..)

Any head unit with a remote control. You'd also need the steering wheel convertion kit though. Something like the PAC SWIX.
