[DMCForum] Re: Radio Basics?

You certainly got me there Greg :)

I fully plan to make my own Kick Panel housings. I almost HAVE TO 
since my recovered dash does not have speaker holes in the leather.

The rear speakers are more interesting since as you pointed out I've 
got a nice aluminum bulkhead there and in some places it completely 
blocks the rear speakers. I'm almost at a loss on the rear speakers. 
I guess I just need to experiment with it a bit.

As for my head unit, the 715DVD and 815DVD are the Kenwood models 
from a year or two ago. That's probably why you couldn't look them 
up. I'm going with an older refurbished one. Since my car is not a 
daily driver, I'm trying to be a little economical :)

Not to worry, this is only one of the sound systems in the car. 
Interior and Exterior sounds will be in there as well.
