new radio

so i got home today and my radio had been waiting on me. so i did what any normal person does and threw my luggage aside and went to work. ok there was time for a but thats about it.

i got a Kenwood KDC-MP445U. i am pretty happy with it as my main concern was a direct hook up for an ipod.

i installed it myself. took about 2 hours only because i had no idea what i was doing before i started. ive never rigged up a wiring harness and all, but it really wasnt that difficult . i called crutchfield twice for quick questions about 2 wires, and they were great. i waited longer on hold really than it took for him to tell me what i missed.

im happy with it. subs and an amp will get plugged into it soon, just not yet. still need to decide what im doing for a box and what route i want to take.

warning: big pics to follow.







this message is beagle approved.




edit: keep an eye out in the for sale section soon if you want a stock radio (just the normal stock one, its not mygig or anything). ill probably also sell my ipod car thing. it hooks into the cig lighter and ur ipod, then has a cord from the headphone jack of the ipod to the aux port. as soon as i know this ones not gonna f- up, theyll b there.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.
