Installed New Head Unit

well 2 days after using the factory deck i already wanted to hang myself, so figuring that 3 free months of sirius wasn't all that great anyway, i went ahead and changed my stock deck for my kenwood that i had sitting in my closet.

After putting it in i realized it's either a) time for a overhaul of the actual headunit, or i might see about picking up something new, but for the time being she's 50x better then stock, sounds a hell of a lot better too. All i'm waiting on now is sub/amp.








i forgot i need to add two spacers for the top of the plastic deck surround, you can see it's a little bit unflush from the airbag on/off indicator, other then that the install went pretty good. had to alter a bit of the steel housing to get everything to fit up in there.

There's also the brain to the unit thats behind the hvac controls, it's mounted in there on a tamperproof bracket with about 10 security screws and lag bolts holding it to the frame, it's not going anywhere :D

Very Nice
I have to agree with the sock unit
The audiophile package sounds much better
