    Question Moving your headunits face.

    I'm not sure what area to put this in so I thought General will do.

    Have any of you guys moved your faceplate off the cd receiver headunit and mounted it permenately eslewhere? Then just run cabling to the headunit? I can't remember but isn't there only (at most) around 10 pins?

    Just a thought.. then you could put the unit under the seat and clear up some room for indash things.

    if you are going to do that, then why have a headunit at all? why not buy an FM-tuner and hook up the puter to an amp?

    it can be done, it is not too hard (also not the easiest thing) I have seen it done a few times

    there are plenty of places that sell the wire u will need, after that it is a matter of time and patience...

    Kain101: Do I need special wiring? Could I just run some ribbon cable after I find a connector that will work on both ends? It's a Kenwood deck and there are just 10 pins 5 on top and bottom I believe.

    you can run ribbon wire... now all the ones that i have seen with the faceplate in one area and the main body in another had the wires directly soldered but, if you can find a connector 1.) more power to you, and 2.) let me know where u found it...

    good luck, and remember to post plenty of pictures
