audiophiles, need some help please...
 
just got kenwood 911dvd headunit and am going to install it myself. i got everything but need to know whats the easiest, best way to run wires to either the passenger or drivers side seat so that i can put the hide-away module somewhere. not sure how to get the wires there. what pieces do i need to take off so that i can run the wires under the carpet. any help would be much appreciated.:dunno:

your in for a long night! when I did mine I had take the glove department apart... but I put my brain under the carpet in the passengers foot well. I would take it to a shop personally.

I have a lot of pics of the install, but none of the actually kenwood brain under the carpet. I put the tv tuner antenna across the top of the windshield.

bender, can you post a pic of the antenna on the windshield. wanna see what it looks like before i decide on where i want to put it. you were right about the install...this is becoming a big pain in the arse. thanks

The car is at my shop...I'm going up there tonight so I'll snap some pics for you. running the wires was the most time consuming thing in the deck. I had a bunch of wires going back and forth from the deck to teh brain. I had to take the glove box apart.

How far have you gotten?

well, i took out the HU and took out the glove compartment. its just a matter of running the wires and hooking everything up. having some problems though. dont know where to put the loc, doesnt seem like its going to fit behind the HU...not much room back there. also, the biggest problem that i just discovered is the antenna adaptor. i looked everywhere for an antenna adaptor for the 2002's since i heard they were different and so i called crutchfield and they said they had one specifically for the 2002 models. well, the freakin adaptor doesnt fit. shiit!!! also, im still not sure where to run the diversity antenna to. dont want to have to take apart the whole car to run that antenna. well, at this point im kinda stuck.

My shop got in a euro antenna adapter that supposedly works with the new antenna plugs. We got it in a week ago. I'll ask my installer's for you....
