I actually did an install like that myself and it worked pretty well. I wired both head units electrically in parallel. The speaker connections (for the front and rear) went to a small circuit carrying 2 DPDT relays. The relay centre point then went to the speakers. There was a manual switch with a 12V trigger to the relay, and a small delay cap circuit ensured that even for a fleeting second, the two output stages were never fused together.

Jesus Christ.... Thats IT!! I've been Navinized!!!!! AIEEE!!!

Ok Sam, Navin & other contributors to this thread, looks like you solved Das' problem.....congratulations on helping another BHPian in his setup.

I think this setup should work for me too. This is for a Corsa 1.4. But I have other considerations.

HU: I already have a Blaupunkt tape player in the car. I have a portable DVD player which I want to install in the car along with this(plays DVD, ACD & MP3). How does this get installed ? I know it can be fastened to the passenger/driver seat. But I want to install this for the co-passenger & not the rear passengers. Need help in setting it up on the dash & connecting to my music system setup ?

Considering the below setup, same as Das'
Amp & Speaker setup:

Amp not decided yet (considering Sony 502z)
JBL 426e (front) & JBL 936 (rear)

Sony502z to power a JBL CS1200T tube or Blaupunkt GTB 300

Should this be fine or am I missing something ? Is there a single amp which can feed all the speakers (front, rear & woofers). Total Budget of Rs 15000/- (+/- 2000)

1. I am not sure if your portable DVD player will be capable of handling the bumps of the road. In the days before car CD players became the norm we use to get a goose neck and platform that could be boltd behind the dash and the CD player (DVD today) could be placed on that.

2. your 426 and 936 would need a 504Z

the rest seems ok.

what r ur other considerations? adding a sony vcd player( 10k?) would be teh best thing if u want 2 c a movie. and if u can, 606 at the frnt would be better since u drive and u want ur co-passenger 2 get better audio setup

what say guys?
