      I just purchased a 2000 XLT, and I'm ready to upgrade the head unit. I'm going with the Kenwood KDC-MPV7019 because I have an existing CD-changer that it will control. I also have a Kenwood 1/2 DIN Equalizer that I'd like to mount just below the new head. The dash appears to have sufficient room for both, but I haven't been able to find a dash kit that supports both.

      Anyone ever seen one?

      Try to find a Metra brand one, it should have a one DIN opening and a 1/2 DIN opening, then just attach the EQ to the DIN cage and away you go.

      Metra part #99-5802


      While I was looking I found speaker adaptors for 5-1/4 or 6-1/2 in a 5x7/6x8 opening,

      Metra part #82-5600 Adapts a 5 1/4" or 6 1/2" speaker to Ford 6" x 8" opening (pair).
