so i found the dream stereo for the ls an ecplise AVN2454 radio/nav/dvd player that is double din. now could that big ol radio be safely squeezed into a 02 ls with the alpine system (factory) with out modification
No its not hard at all. As long as you are good at soldering wire and etc. It is easy. One problem I have it that u have to cut the a/c control brackets that connect it to the main radio. There by cutting it, you will have a small gap. I was looking at that radio but instead got an alpine iva-w505
it sure is, with out the bracket holding it together it will bulge out in the center kinda like ...In that setup is the radio and climate control still connected.
Because I had to cut the bracket in order to put my radio in. So now if I want to take me radio out I only have to unsrew the two srews at the top and it is out.
