I am ordering a Pioneer 9800BT from the net and I heard I have to purchase an installation kit on its own.Is it neccessary or does the unit contain the sufficient kit for installing it.

You will most likely need one but if you buy from certain places online they will include the kit you need.

Sonic Electronix and Crutchfield are 2 I know that usually include it.

Ok can someone tell me what the installation kit is because anyway i will go to a head units shop to install it for me so maybe they have the installation kit.And another question...is the installation kit of this HU different from that of other HU's?
Im sorry I'm a total noob i know i am asking stupid questions

its dependent on your car, you need to take out the stock housing, which usually houses other components as well, and replace it with an aftermarket one

it depends on what kind of car you have...just because your car doesnt need one doesnt mean his wont as well

if your taking it to a shop then just buy the HU, the shop will have everything you need.
