    Is it?


    Mine has integrated HU, Problem is I dont want to take it off and leave a gap in the dash. So am thinking of buying a not so expensive HU capable of reading MP3. Ill just put it under the dash and just use remote to navigate around the stereo.

    yes pero you should install some kind of switch to disable the other 1st HU if you're using the 2nd HU..para di magkaproblema sa stock speaker input

    You can probably either interface both with the same amplifier and have that drive the speakers, or set your stock HU as an "Aux" input on the secondary HU.

    Q: if I dont want to mess with the electrical of my new ride because of posible warranty claims in the future, can i install a 2nd battery and create a secondary layer of wires to power up a nice speaker set?

    i think its possible but you won't really need a 2nd battery..just use the same battery..papangit lang interior if nakalabas mga wires and whatnots

    it's possible, but if you don't want to mess with the electrical system you can't switch the signal between HU's. so you would have to have different speakers for each HU, which is stupid.

    if those are your constraints it might be better to buy an iPod, an MP3 boombox, and play it from the passenger seat.

    It might be easier to have the original HU hacked for an AUX input.

    here a pic of what i did, kung may aux in yung new radio mo, pwede parin gumana old radio mo. ganyan ginawa ko.
    with regards sa warranty, a week after i had my car pinakabitan ko agad radio. I think void agad electricals mo kapag naginstall ka ng new radio, even if panibagong llinya, pag nasa casa kana hahanap at hahanap sila ng reason to void your warranty. nagcomplain ako sa casa about airbag problem they told me void na because of setup ko, medyo nadaan sa pakiusap kasi wala naman kinalaman airbag sa radio. but kung may kinalaman siguro sa dash electricals ko i think di na nila honor.

    if your problem is just you want to play mp3... why not buy kingston's Fm modulator? they have resumable song with remote * 880pesos.

    ^no offense, but those fm modulators are pure carp for audiophiles (or people who like to think they are :lol: ). i have had both the Griffin and Monster Audio versions, and they are both a waste of money if you're looking for good sound quality...
