    Is the faceplate just a spare part you bought (if yes , where?) or you have bought the entire pioneer unit?

    Have you got some pics of the faceplate hack?

    there is no pioneer unit, just the detachable face plate. i picked it up off of ebay and the drilled holes through the back of it and added little extension 'rods' to the face plate's buttons. these rods extended to the back of the faceplate and would act as the connection from the button to the micro switch, from there i glued the micro switches to the back. now i had a bunch of switches that i could hook up to the ipac2 board. does that make it a little clearer?

    And how much would one charge if I find the exact same faceplate?

    lol... i think i got mine for $60 or $80 it wasnt cheap, but at the time i wanted to have some tactile buttons and make it look stock, so it was worth it to me. With my new setup that i'm currently working on, it may not allow me to keep that faceplate so i could probably sell it to someone, i just have to tighten it up some, i used hot glue to glue it in but i'm not sure how it'll hold up in the summer. i may have to redo it if i decide on selling it.

    That is one absolutely sexy install!

    How are you liking the line driver? Does it make a big difference?

    actually this is a really old install, it has gone through a few revisions. I noticed a huge improvement using the x-over/linedriver over just the sb live 5.1. Since then I have gone to the Alpine pxa-h701 and i recently sold that in favor of an echo gina 3g sound card and zapco crossover. Also pretty much every component you see there besides the computer and tweeters has been swapped out. I should have another install thread in about a month.

    Hurry up! =)

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the Gina soundcard you're using, you mentioned it had 5+v preouts in another thread. My install is a do-over at the moment, as I hit a bump at some point my current sound card is pushing daisies. Sound Blaster makes me grind my teeth, so an alternative would be great.
    I do hope the crossover isn't necessary as I don't feel like dropping money on it after a $300 soundcard.

    the x-over may not be necessary depending on your amps. the amps for my front speakers have no internal x-overs (less components, less cost, less noise) If i had used the card with either of my old amps i wouldnt have needed a crossover.
