    You just need to extend the connections from the face to the base. Most people use CAT5 wire.

        You can probably extend them pretty darn far, there's probably no high-bandwidth traffic between the HU and the faceplate. The distance is usually just a problem when you're talking about strobing the signal 50K times a second or something to transmit data. A faceplate probably 'talks' to the HU through simple, slow commands.
