do you have any "in progress" pictures of the install? I was curious to see what and where you needed to trim and did you repaint the bezel after you trimmed it to fit?

It is the Legacy unit, however, I think that second one that is posted is the same thing with a different brand with less output. Legacy is manufactured by Pyle.

It does play CDs, DVDs, MP3, has a TV (bad recp). Specs listed below....

As for in progress pictures, I didn't take any. I ended up using a straight router bit with a bearing in my cordless drill. The bearing kept the cut nice and flush/even. I cut from the back of the trim.


On the bottom side there was a lower section in the middle which I left intact, I only removed the right and left sections of the bottom and the entire top. No need to cut the left and right sides. That seemed to give it the exact tight doublie din fit. I have not re-painted it but I was thinking about it. I nabbed this pic from ebay: (I removed where it is highlighted in red.)






I like the unit and I know you get what you pay for. I'm certainly not dropping $1000-$1200 for a better brand name.

I drove from boston to providence last night and it's clear it will take some time to get use to the remote. It's kinda like getting a new TV at home, you have to get use to the button location on the remote. But in this case you're not piloting a sofa.

Thanks! I'm thinking of getting a new head unit and if I do it will be a double din, and that helps out on how to trim it to fit. keep up the good work.

Looks really good! I love my double-din Alpine, but it cost me $800.

Well, on mine I had to file down the lip on the top and bottom of the opening. If you pull your radio you can see them.

Ya, what does that mean. Brand has nothing to do with it. it's all how they design it. My Alpine double-din fits great.
