    Head Unit Assistance

    First off, hello to the forum. This place looks like a great place to get a lot of info..
    I used to be in the car audio scene a while back, but have since turned my attention to performance/cosmetic upgrades which took my play money away from audio. But now, I feel like I need some sounds in my ride, and since it's been so long and things have changed quite a bit, I thought I could learn a few things...Thanks for any help you fellas can provide.


    So I've decided to go with a Pioneer Premier DEH-P880PRS http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Pioneer-Prem...QQcmdZViewItem as the starting point of my system. After doing much research, it seems that this is a great foundation on which to build on.

    Now my questions...

    Which accessories/adaptors do I need to install XM radio and iPod?

    I'm pretty sure that for the XM, I need this: XM Tuner

    And for the iPod, I'll need this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-PIONEER-CD-I...QQcmdZViewItem

    Do I need this by any chance?
    http://cgi.ebay.com/PIONEER-CD-RB20-...QQcmdZViewItem

    And obviously a dash kit to install it properly. Am I correct with the above accessories to complete the headunit install?

    And if someone could post a link to a high quality dash kit for a 98 Tahoe I'd really appreciate it. Something that will make the install easy and look perfectly flush with the dash. Thanks fellas...any other suggestions welcome.

    Best kits are the only way to go!

    I don't necessarily agree with the choice of product, but what do you want the accessory adapter for? the ipod piece is self contained, you don't need the other piece unless you were adding some sort of other audio source.



    - IF you are going to do it..... do it RIGHT the first time.
    - IF you have a question on what product to buy - buy alpine

    Thanks for the link to the dash kit...

    I wasn't sure if I needed that aux adapter and that's why I was asking..I was looking on pioneer's website, and it didn't clarify whether or not that unit was needed to fully control the iPod...thanks for the help.

    Hopefully, the install will go smoothly once all the equipment arrives. I can't wait to finally start building a new system.
