90Q20V Aftermarket Radio

When I got my '90 90Q20V, there was an Alpine radio in it. The FM reception 
has never been great and the AM is worse. Knowing that there were two 
antennas with different connectors than normal radios, I decided to take 
out the radio and see how it was connected. It turns out that whoever 
installed the radio soldered/taped the antenna wires in the car to wires 
with the conventional connector. Only one antenna wire was connected to the 
radio. I went to Radio Shack and got a 'Y' connector so I could connect 
both antennas. Does this make sense? What do most people do when installing 
aftermarket radios?
