Hello everyone, my name is Matt, I have been an installer for 8 years now. My audio installs is a part time side job, however I work as a I.T. guy. We got our new van a few weeks ago and the stock system was not cutting it for me.
Stage 1 Head unit install
I decided to go with something that could give me expandability and features but also not something that would blow the budget. The JVC KW-R900BT fit the bill nicely. I am a alpine guy all day and kenwood is a close runner up, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone on this one and go with a different brand all together.
On to the pictures.
Few of the parts
Ran the mic on top of the A pillar, no problem with echo or noise.
As I do all my work, I soldered and marine grade heat shrunk all the wires, sadly I was in a rush and did not take a picture of this.
Wires ready to go.
Routed the USB #2 port to the glove box, very simple to do.
Head unit installed in the metra dash kit.
Installed with trim ring
