    This is my Pioneer radio unit. I like the fact that it's bluetooth and themicrophone is included.

    And the fact is that it doesn't stand out too much with the blue color with my blue LED center console.

    In my opinion if you upgrade something it must still fit the image of the car. And this one is perfect.

    So the clock on the radio shows you where your going, and the one in the console shows you where you've been?

    Nice unit...

    I can second the Infinity Kappa 52.9i's in the rear. I just threw a set into my car along with some Infinity Kappa 32.9cf's in the front.

    I just ordered the Infinity's for the front and back.

    Any tips on replacing the rears to avoid damage?

    I also got the Infinity set... I went to install them today and hit a small roadblock. The dash studs are not long enough for the new speakers which have a spacer ring on them.

    So, how did you guys mount the fronts? The spacer ring is necessary to protect the center speaker and the rubber speaker mount. With it in place the exisitng studs in the dash are not long enough.

    Did you just mount to the lower fiberglass because I'm not sure there's another way? Also... any advice on how to deal with the dangling crossover?

    Thanks. Can't wait to hear them.

    DO NOT BUY THESE INFINITY SPEAKERS. THEY DO NOT FIT.

    Unless others can tell me how they did it.

    The fronts have a spacer on the front that makes them too deep for the existing mounting studs - in other words you cannot use the exisitng mounting location.

    The rear's are too wide to fit along the wheel well in the factory position. I also believe the tweeter sticks out too far to allow the back panel to be reinstalled.

    Others have said they work. Tell me what I'm doing wrong.

    Here are pics of te rears...

    EDIT - sorry the pics are out of focus - I was in a hurry. You can still see how the mounting holes do not align and the indent in the carpet is the panel position with the speaker sticking beyond it.

    EDIT B - Took another look at Tom's pic... It looks tight in the fit but it's in there. I will have annother go at it later and let everyone know how it turns out.

    Update... I got one of the rear speakers in. It's a tight squeeze but seems ok.

    The fronts are another matter. Gonna have to think about how.
