how did you do that? How much cutting did you have to do?

I hade a hard enought time with my single alpine and its mess of wires and that dc/dc converter.
I basically took the carrier for the factory head and climate control and hacked the crap out of it, then built custom brackets for the alpine pieces to center it in the hole vertically and horizontally. Past that, I didn't alter the car at all. The mounting bracket for the H700 required some modification to clear the heater ducts, but past that it was easy.

And it was tough to get all the wires in there. The trick is to pull the vents above the head so that you can get access to the wires.
