Trunk Mounted Stereo

I am going to keep my original AM mono setup but would like to add a simple stereo in the trunk with a pigtail for my iPod. If anyone has any tips or pics of what they've done I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Re: Trunk Mounted Stereo

What are you looking for with a trunk mounted stereo? If you just want to run tunes off your iPod, you can connect it directly to an amp with the use of a line driver and skip the head unit. If you are using an iPhone, you can download an app like Pandora, and have radio functions as well.

Using the slider on an iPhone for volume control is kind of touchy. It would be much better to have a rotary knob of some kind to adjust it. The iPod would be easier for this function.

There's a rather long but informative sticky on pro-touring.com regarding this install: http://www.pro-touring.com/showthrea...ctly-to-an-amp

Re: Trunk Mounted Stereo

I will be finishing up the install of a secret audio system today. I need to extend my antenna lead today. Ill add some pics later.

I mounted the control unit in my center console. Unit has provisions for Ipod hookup, flashdrive use, and satellite input. It also has the CD and aux inputs. Outputs include the RCA outputs and a sub output.

Doing the 1 disc cd player since I listen to the radio 99% of the time. Will be adding a small sub later this week.

Re: Trunk Mounted Stereo

Well take a look at this one if your iPod or MP3 player or iPhone is going to be the major player and not CD or non-app based radio or scanner source. Easy to hide and use:

You can also install most any DIN mount head in the glove box, trunk, under the seat, etc and use an infrared remote extender (PAC IR-X) to run them. That's what I do in mine.
