Interesting choice of dual single din options, most would go for a double. What are you plans for mounting them?

I'm seriously thinking about getting a mount 3d printed if I can ever come up with the 3d model for it.

yeah, i wanted to do something that i could get to sound really good, image properly and run optical outputs to the processor! None of the new double dins or most of the single dins don't have optical out anymore. I attended the Mark Eldridge's Sound Quality Seminar and he came to the "get together" we had and he helped alot of us level match and test for clipping/ distortion. that combo I'm using (running it optically) did not clip until after the volume knob was at 35/35 so, with the volume at 34.... it was clean as a whistle!!!
once we pull out the factory unit... I'll post pic's of what was done to mount them and the LCD HVAC unit.

I just installed a pioneer double din in my car along with the touchscreen hvac controller. Still working on the fiberglass trim panel for it but making progress. As far as the steering wheel controls I used the axxess ASWC-1 works pretty good. Not great but good. It auto programs so piece of cake to install, 3 wire hook up.

Volume control? I swear you guys make it difficult not to pull the trigger on this type of project lol.

I'm thinking of trying to incorporate one of these guys + some MDF and fiberglass to see if I could come up with a solid looking mount
