Well, I was going to do an in-dash screen but decided to integrate my laptop instead.

Because of this I decided to replace my double din Pioneer with an Eclipse CD5441 and 6-disc 5962 in-dash changer. I have also ordered the Eclipse DSP/EQ/DTS/DOLBY DIGITAL processor and center channel speaker.

Here is a pic of the HU:

Dead Link Removed

I am hoping to get the laptop setup this week. Since my laptop has optical digital output I will be connecting it to the Eclipse Sound processor once it come in.

Bill, That looks good!

I was thinking that if you wanted to clean your dash up a little you could get the console that has the factory fog light button/switch and use it with your after market lights. I hooked mine up to the button and it works great.

Just a suggestion, to keep it looking clean.:) ;)

Keep up the good work Representin' the 01+ crowd! :bounce:
 






that is sharp looking. did the double din go in pretty easily or did you have to cut of some of the surrounding trim?

is that the factory a/c gauge or aftermarket? i think i might want one of those gauges.

I replaced a Pioneer double-din with this setup. I had to trim the dash for the Pioneer so I don't know if I needed to for the Eclipse. I don't think I would have. The Pioneer needed trimmed because of the face.

Those are the factory A/C controls and faces

Actually, I'm thinking of getting a new radio & A/C sourround that has the fog light button in it.
 






Again Bill the system looks great!
