I am having an Eclipse CD 8443 installed on Monday "thanks to EMass for the suggestion from one of your links there was a noticable difference compared to the Alpine I was going for"
Anyway what i am asking is if you had an EX did you do a complete rewire or did you just simply bypass the amp. I am getting smoke blown up my *** by installers about the whole "keeping the stock sub and amp running off the preouts from a new deck theory" Did you do this and how. I would do the install my self but if I want the theft warranty from Eclipse they need to show labor. Later on I will then wire up the Aux jack and deal with the sub on my own. Any Info would be greatly appreciated.
Your installer can place the pocket either above or below your head unit--your choice. As for using the amp and subwoofer that comes with the EX, is you have a good installer they should be able to incorporate those into the system.

that is a really good "why didn't I think of that" idea (putting the pocket above the stereo). I am going to pull out my head unit this weekend and switch it with the pocket.
I have this head unit (below) and it gets old reaching for the remote control every time I want to adjust the volume. and I didn't want to attach that wierd no-look remote to the steering wheel that Sony offers. Oh and it's kind of hard to see the readout when it is open and way up there on the dash.
