I just recently bought my new Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD and am looking around for a very clean 2Din kit for my 06 Mazda 3 Sedan. Currently the two best that i have found are the Eonon version and the Speedline version. Sadly i cannot put links to either product being i am new here

The Speedline is 85.00$
The Eonon is 55.00$

I dont mind the extra price of the speedline version because they have the extra option for a 7" Screen which I enjoy, the Eonon version you have to mod slightly to have it fit.

I am just overall curious if there are any other types of 2Din kits available that i have not spotted that may be better for my current car.



Thank you all for any inputs and have a nice day!

I used one of the cheap ones sold on EBay, I think it was a Metra or Scosche. It was like 10 or 15 bucks. Fitment was good, probably a solid 8.5/10. The only thing I have to do with it is paint it a gloss black to match the trim around the HVAC controls(I dont think your car has gloss black though since its older...)

It could have been Scosche, I dont remember. It is whatever the cheap brand is. If I would just stop being lazy and paint it gloss black, I would have 0 complaints about it though.

Your post will probably not show up with the links, this site is terrible at doing anything in a timely fashion. Here are links though.

I lied in my last post though, there is ONE thing I dont like about the Scosche kit I have. I lose my LCD screen that tells me time/temp/etc. It appears as though these let you still be able to have that.

Thank you for the links micah those are the exact two i am debating on. I am only leaning twords the seconds one (the speedline) because it has two different sizes one of which is 7"-178mm X 100mm. The screen size on the AVH-P4300DVD is 7" so i can only assume it will allow the perfect fit with no cutting or tweaking...80$ is just alot for me to go for it....i just wish someone who had both could come out and tell me which is better, but sadly nothing ever goes the way people want lol.


EDIT: I guess i am just gonna jump into and go for the speedline one.....lets hope it works out for me if not 80$ down the drain and 55$ more to spend! Ohhh electronics how you hurt my wallet so much!

2nd Edit: I just read alot of really bad reviews for the speedline site and i have once again changed my mine on which to get....plus it was 30$ shipping....no thanks on that!

You should definitely try the Scosche one on EBay before you drop that much on one. They are like 14 or 16 bucks I think or like 20 with a wiring harness. Mine fits good, although it doesnt look quite as nice as the Eonon one(since it kinda dips in by the cd player). I dont think you will be disappointed unless you are a perfectionist.

I started in on painting my Scosche kit gloss black tonight to match the HVAC controls and the trim going across the dash. I will take lots of pics to show you how it looks after its finished.
