I was wondering how to install a aftermarket double din CD/MD (Minidisc) deck into a BA/BF Falcon?, I am planing on getting a BA or BF, but want to know if an aftermarket deck /decks can be put into the car.....

You can fit them but they will run through AUX function on the factory system only, giving you left and right audio only, no fade etc.

I have a single din HU installed where the tissue box holder goes. I doubt you will get a double din in there. It is connected through the aux connection. I am only using it for mp3's and DVD's, still using the factory radio.

Just get a single one. I installed mine last week - play dvd's through the factory screen with the help of a little convertor box. The picture quality is suprisingly awesome.

I use a 2.5 Inch HDD Divx/MP3 player. Holds too many songs to listen to in a trip but also has the bonus of playing video as well on a premium system!

If you have the factory colour screen you can get the /////ALPINE Factory Hub Interface then you can plug in anything you like eg: DVD, MP3, SAT NAV, Reverse Camera etc...

if no Factory Colour Screen you can upgrade this
email: stephen@coastalcaraudio.com.au for more info on doing this !!!

The space is too small for a double din, but a single din goes in nicely.

You will lose your steering wheel controls though if you install an aftermarket model.

Does anyone have a photo of these single din setups?

I wanna buy a BA falcon on eGas and put my current stereo (plus some better bits that I have bought) into it.

Here's a piccy of mine - but I was lazy and got someone else to do the wiring install - above is right though, you do lose you're volume control on the steering wheel (but not the cruise) - I know he did run it off auxillary, and at first kept the front speakers hooked in to both head units, but that schitted me to tears - so I just changed the wiring on the speakers to run soley off the aftermarket unit... It also allows me to run the amp and sub now...
