Default Replacing bad head unit and speakers?

A friend recently gave me a Kenwood KDC-MP345U and i was wondering how to go about installing in into my 1994 Lumina. My friend when he installed his had to cut wires and blah blah. Basically kill chances of ever putting the original back in.

Stereo Radio install Mount Dash Kit +Wire Harness Plug | eBay

Is this what i need?

Also 2 of the 4 speakers do not work. How would i replace those(just basic speakers..nothing fancy)? Would the head unit and speakers require a different alternator or anything?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Lol i have the same car! And yes that is the dash kit, wiring harness (so you dont have to cut wires) and the right antenna adapter. Pretty easy install. PM if you have any questions, or post them in this thread! Ill be glad to help!

They are ok. Some know tranny problems and poor interior quality, but overall a decent car.
