Default Need help in installing the Pioneer head unit(5950) in the dashboard(ac contols)

Hi Team,
Thank you welcoming in the TBHP family. Though new to the car business, i am getting more passionate about maintaining my car. I have Maruti 800. I need help and advise on installing the Pioneer head unit(5950) in the dashboard which is used for the AC controls. The vehicle is STD model, noplans of having a AC fitted. So want help to get thehead unit installed. Will that work out,. Some people were of the opinion that head unit will protrude out and will not look good. Need advise ??

I have a pioneer TS 20 tweeters for the front ( earlier had jbl 4" round speakers)...Rear speakers are again jbl GT0937 (ovals) and have jbl 2 chaneel amp powering them (JBL GT402A amplifier i belive ??)

Note - I hope i have posted it in the right thread this time

You are on the right track this time. Well if you please come up with some pics of where you exactly want HU to be placed.

There is (ought to be) space below the A/C controls to "slide" in the HU and lock it down.

AFAICT, some versions of the M800 do NOT have this provision in the dash, in which case, the installer would fabricate / install a pre-fabricated mounts.

Have not done this myself, but saying on basis of an overheard conversation with my installer and a prospective customer while ICE was being done on my car.
