hi. my first post here. Sorry for bad English.
I lived overseas way to long. :laugh:

Nice to join the board and hope to share lot of informations :)

I have a stock headunit that I want to keep it since it has USB/Hands free/ steering wheel remote..etc. I know the best way would be giving up all those and buy a decent deck but I like the stock look of it. Afterall, thieves won't be able to tell if I have aftermarket stereo in the car ;)

I used to use Audiocontrol's LC6 to do it before, but I wanted to ask all of you what is the best way to use stock headunit with aftermarket gears. I have the following to be installed.

Focal K2P
Focal 33KX
Focal 2.150
Focal 1.800

I was looking for products online, and noticed there's one from JL, few from Audiocontrol. So what's your recommandations? :)

attached is an image of the center facia where the deck is located.

JL does make a new interface which compensates for al sorts of vehicle variables to make it sound as good as an aftermarket but personally i would get a good high low converter so you can use an aftermarket amp and still have functions with factory deck.buddy did it in a grand prix for some of the same reasons and it sounded great.
