Wait, I thought the factory amp was behind the driver seat.The amp is built into the OEM HU, if I recall correctly. If you install a aftermarket HU, you will need an adapter plate, a couple of adapters, an amp to power the OEM sub, and associated wiring. Use Crutchfield as a resource to what you'll need or buy from them.
You CANNOT just end there! We need to have a full review, with pictures, positives and negatives of the unit, and installation tips/gotchas.I bought a hi-end one from Seicane, an unknown dealer from China because I read a review on one of its product. Then, I go there...unexpectedly, the unit I got works well in my car.
Sounds interesting - what source?I bought a factory replacement from china that was the exact same size as the OEM one so no trim piece needed. it was actually for a chevy silverado but it had the unit thing and speaker for the chime and blinker and a compatible harness. it was 379 with dvd, gps 7" touch screen, windows, OBDII and back up camera. sounds like it would have worked but never got the chance. Going in my Mustang now.
I put a monitor in my sunshade for a rearview camera. Works fine, but turns out the screen is too near my face when flipped down so I need my glasses on to see it clearly (sigh).Has anyone done an install with a rear camera that they thought was really good? I got started on this kick when I rode in a friend's Jag F type - excellent deck with very effective camera - don't know who makes them for Jaguar.
I wonder if this is really plug and play...going to have to look more into it...I bought a standard double din and schoche (?) bezel and while it was in transit I came across this one. Here's the link. All the dims were the same and like I said, it included the can bus and came with a speaker for the bells that you would mount under the dash. Looks like a very close match. I elected to get one with the RCA outs and sub woofer control since I had all aftermarket amps but I'm sure it would work with whatever set-up you have.
