There're very nice installers in Bangy. Try Autofusion, EBbass Sprocket etc.. They will sell you authorised Alpine HU with B&W. They're good in doing neat installs too.
And what're you planning for speakers?

Guess,will have to see ,what else is available in market..

btw anyone knows authorized Alpine dealers in Blr?

i know sprocket very well...got most of audio setup done there..Sprocket is very expensive.. you don't find HU's other than sony or panasonic there.. only few Pioneer models are available...

I recommend you Pm blueraven and try autofusion

Default Installing a Single din player into a Double din slot.

My old car has a factory fitted kenwood Double din unit, everything is great about it except that it does not have a USB slot and can only play CD’s.

Since I don't plan to retain the car for long, don't want to shell out for a new double din player just for the USB slot. (Double din units avg cost 7k+ Single din’s available from 2.8k+)

Any suggestions on the following would be welcome (I am based out of Bangalore)

- Using a mounting slot can one install a Single din player into a double din slot ?
- Is there any aftermarket way of attaching a USB slot into a player ?

All I need is just FM and a USB port, dont need a CD slot .

Ps: Could not find any thread with the exact same requirement so created a new one.

If you want a quick fix (and not the best, long-term solution), visit JC road. Bunch of shops that will retrofit a USB slot in the existing player.

Else, if you get a new single din player, you can always fit a dummy cover in the other half.

Yes, very much possible. Have replaced factory fitted 2-DIN HU with 1-DIN JVC HU in my Innova.

Default Re: Installing a single-din player into a double-din slot

I have a Honda City ZX Vtec which came with a 2-Din Alpine HU from factory. Down the years, the factory fitted system was replaced by a 1-Din Pioneer HU and the empty spot was filled by a cheap quality plastic tray which makes the facia look horrible.

I know that the lower variants of my car came with a single din Alpine HU and a closed drawer to fill the empty spot. I asked Honda ASS but they don't seem to stock that part anymore. Is there a better alternative to the tray or any idea where i can find this kind of drawer ?
