    Hello, I was wondering where the trim ring around the d3 came from, did it come with it? The top and bottom looks very thin did you have to trim it that way? I just got a d3 but it was an open box and it did not come with a trim ring or sleeve, that it why I am asking. Thanks in advance.

    Contact John and get his install kit. Once you get it in-hand. You'll see.

    There's several different interface modules depending on brand and model of HU. So, the answer is 95% yes.

    There is a module for this install. These work.

    Can this Head Unit,(CD Receiver FH-P800BT Premier Double DIN), work with this set up, with the MTX 300 AMP, MTX 5500 10" SUB, and have the steering wheel buttons still work. I also would like to upgrade the CD changer to Pioneer Premier CDX-P686, 6 disc changer. Can all of this work together, and is it available, I would like to get this set up if possible and have magindat install it for me at his convenience.

    The way I have it set up, the way it came, it DOES NOT still have the steering wheel controls for music. However there are several interface options available, just ask John or Rich (magindat)

    PS Good call on the install chief, you will be in good hands.

    Yep. All that will work together. However, I suggest the 12 disc changer. I know it fits in the factory location with a little creativity (I did it on Dennis') and it's only a few buck difference.

    Dude, you need to PM me. And lets talk on the phone. I can actually pre-do some of the stuff.

    We have room for you here and there's lodging nearby, too.

    PM for the number.

    Thanx for the props, Ryan... Check out the KING KONG thread!!!

    Any chance of a picture of the XM and GPS antennas? Are they mounted on top of the dash or hidden underneath?

    Yup, looks just about where I've got mine. Passenger side, all the way up on the dash in that corner. PLENTY of cable is included, in fact I could have made two laps of the car interior and still placed them where they are at. The ONLY problem I'VE had with this location is that, on occasion, when headed due north, the satellite radio cuts out. Otherwise great location.

    Ryan I have the same problem in the GM on the north run. I am going to try it under the header panel like Kenny suggested when the next stereo goes in. We have put them under the fiberglass of boats and they seem to work fine. More in another month.

    Due north.

    That puts the entire cabin and roof in the way of the signal. (Due south) The azimuth is steep and I figured the antenna was far enough forward to get in front of the roof.

    Somehow I don't think putting it under the header panel will help since the entire roof structure and cabin will still be in the way of the signal.

    I know it's south and up at a pretty steep angle Perhaps those few inches forward are enough to avoid the line of sight going through the cabin structure?
