I wanna keep the stock unit but I dont think I can with my subs.(which I really want bumpin)

Any thoughts??

That's a sweet head unit. I'd put one in my jeep if I had one. Do you have the steering wheel controls? If you want to keep them the guys I deal with said they can get a module so they work with other head units. Makes me want to move on my subs and get them installed. Too much work and not enough jeeping make me sad

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

I just did the fit guide on that site and it says the unit fits in place of the stock one

sweet! good to know.. I talked to a guy that installs systems. He said that I would be able to use my stock cd player with my subs, so I plan on doing that. I like my head unit and didnt wanna get rid of it.

As far as the subs go I just built my own box that fits the the spare tire wheel well. I got two twelves to fit. So now all I have to do is run my wires and get it hooked in to the head unit. Im pretty excited to get bumpin again cause its been awhile.

Im gonna be going on vacation next week so it will have to wait till I get back, that is if im not broke.

I still haven't had a chance to put any pictures of the rallye up yet, but I promise I will after I get back from vacation.

My birthday is the week after I get back so maybe with a little birthday money I can buy the wire harness.

Where do they get the signal for the amp from on the stock head units? I would be interested in finding this out for my own jeep.

Gents,
I just got back from my local Best Buy to buy a Double Din in dash DVD / Nav unit and i was told that my 2007 compass is not Double Din that it is actually 1 3/4, so with my current dash kit it will not fit. Can anyone confirm this ??
I have seen double din NAV dash kits for sale on ebay and such for 2008-2009 but nothing for 2007. I know the 08 - 09 center console is cosmetically different, but the shape and size seems the same. From what i can tell its just the air vents that are different
( square 07 : round 09 ).

Yeah I was looking into it and the double wont fit.. You would have to get a new dash bezel to make it fit. It takes some customazation.

You would need this

Interesting. I had just measured my stock unit, as best I could on a curved surface, and found the size is a little small. Standard double din units are 4"X7" and mine is actually 3 1/2" X 8".

I actually decided to keep my stock head unit cause I learned that I can use it with my subs as long as I have another harness that gets wired in. I plan on getting it done in the next couple weeks. My birthday is next week and I kinda hoping on getting some birthday cash to help me pay for it. I took some pictures of the sub box that I built I just havent got a chance to put them up on the site.. maybe I can try and do that tonight if I get a chance.

Thanks for asking tho.
