Ok its in and all working. What a PITA . I wouldnt do that again unless I was getting paid for it . Ill take some pics later, I gotta run out, but it is pretty kewl. I dont know if I would pay 2,000 for one, and hope it didnt get stolen, but this was free and I dont live in TOO bad of an area, so I guess it was worth it for me. Now, I am going to watch Dead Silence with my buddy at work while he gets paid

i don't know about that jensen but i've been talking to a buddy of mine who used to own a custom shop doing this crap and he said it just goes in like a regular radio.

my friend just got a Dual 7" touch screen in his Z71 and the woman at best buy had the stock radio out and the touchscreen installed within 30 minutes.

Bigjeep its quite nice when you have car specific instructions on how to remove the stock stereo isnt it? Dont forget the tools to go along with it. I on my rig took out my stereo and isntalled my new one in about that time too.

Ya, like those "No cutting/drilling" required installation kits? No cutting or drilling, but make sure ya got some sandpaper and a dremel handy I bet your installer didnt have to re-wire the radio side of the harness after a fireball incident, with 0 idea where the wires went Something tells me, said installer has probably done one or two, and has Michell On Demand or AllData at there disposal It wasnt too too bad, but it wasnt the same as wiring a radio, there was a couple more wires involved, plus the "brain" that must be routed and wired elsewhere. The power wire/fuse issue was what took me the most time, followed by being anal retentive about the wiring since I am goign to have to take it out without the next year or so.

Anywho, pics! After messing with it all day, I came to find out that the radio was about 1/4 too deep, and I was tired of routing wires/re-plumbing the dash etc. so ill take care of the instalation kit face plate later.










I decided on putting the brain in the glove box because

A. It will stay the driest in a rain storm, or if my Jeep finds another creek.. and B, I have quick access to the IPOD/XM radio/Navigation plugs etc. incase I need to hook something up later.

Sounds a little better than stock, but I honestly didnt do it for the sound. Its a Jeep, it will NEVER have good staging. Besides, going from a 97 2 speaker setup, to this 7.1 in the Rubi, I couldnt be happier with it. It is a little clearer than stock, good bit louder, and the "subwoofer" seems to be better filtered (more cripst bass and less static). All in all I am happy with it, untill someone thinks they need it more than I do Watching a movie on it in a Jeep, is kinda like watching a DVD on a laptop though. The "softer" speach type movies seem to get lost in the staging of the speakers, and you have to adjust the volume a lot. Luckily I am used to that, because my HP laptop does the same thing, but its something you need to get used to. Wouldnt be a problem out in the woods were its quite though

Doesnt this thing have a compressor that sets a regular level and then adjusts the sounds to automatically meet the level? I have it on mine.. it automatically lowers any peaks and stuff and boosts the volume of low sounds so they sound similar loudness. Quite nice when its like that since the level is automatically set so you dont have one song popping speakers and the other one quiet as a funeral home.

Not really sure about that Debruins. I was thinking I would just start it every 30 mins or so. Either way, I keep cables and a jump box in the Jeep, so it really wouldnt be an issue either way.

Ill test long term draw for you this weekend. Ill let a movie play on it all the way through, test the batt with the multi meter, and see if I can get it started when its done.

Edit: I did watch TV with the volume up quite loud, yesterday, for about 30 mins and no problem starting afterwards
