    Make sure to pay attention to rca/line out voltage... 2.0 volts is your standard bull**** voltage.. Id try to get one with atleast 4 volt RCAs

    What're you using all the rcas for?
    Rcas are almost always use for low level signals vs a high level signal and unless you're using a desperate amp to drive speakers then you don't run rcas as running a high level signal to a low level device can mess it up

    Went and bought a new Kenwood single din for 109.99 at best buy. Cheapest one with 3 inputs and i actually like it a lot more than my old jvc. Also bought 4ft rca wires, got home, realized they were too short, so had to go back and get the 8ft ones. So everything is installed and working finally and I'm definitely impressed.

    For what I spent on this system I think I did a really good job. I had my brother come out and listen and he's like man that sounds really clean. I think I still need to tune the amp/headunit combo a little bit more but ill play around with it.

    Congrats Thomas.

    I've had customers throw their JL Audio
    speakers in the trashcan
    when I installed Rockford Fosgate.

    Yeah they are pretty good. Everything blends well together.

    As for the keys, no I did not need them. I just sort of wrestled it out and then wrestled the new kenwood in.

    I'm just glad my interior is back to normal and I have all the trim pieces back in tact.
