Stereo systems-show em here

Postby kntr » Fri Apr 28, 2017 5:45 am

I have a 2009 Vibe and want to put a new deck in it with blue tooth and some power as I don't wanna run another amp. I have 6.5" Alpine speakers in the doors and a 10" Alpine sub already with an Alpine M-250 amp.

What kit will I need to get a single din deck to fit and what decks are you guys running?

Any pics? Show off you system here!

I am running a Pioneer AVH-X4600BT with the stock base speakers.

This is the kit I used. It can do double or single DIN. https://www.amazon.com/Scosche-010TA210 ... B002S0OB50 The fit isn't great, and I had to trim some of the back of the dash kit to get it to fit properly, but I hear the Metra dash kit is worse.

Why not go double DIN? You have the space. Why not something like the https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130X690BS ... 690BS.html which has no CD drive, or the https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130X731BT ... l?tp=72310 which is the same thing with a CD drive.

I am!

New member here (intro post coming sometime tomorrow,) I have an 06 Base (manual) with an old JVC soundsystem. I'm not the model, but we got it installed back in 2010 or 2011. I don't have pics at the moment, but I can get those at some point, if you want

Here's a picture of mine in a 1st Gen.

Eonon GA2154. Runs Android 5.1, but its rooted and tweaked. Disabled Google Play Services, but I use Waze and Here WeGo for Navigation. I regularly use Spotify, SiriusXM and iHeartRadio. I also have an old phone setup with an always on tether to use as a HotSpot for the head unit and anyone else in the car. Its a bit of PITA, but I also have a BT OBD2 reader that I use with Torque Pro.
