I thought I would submit my install for ridicule/comments. Let me know what you all think.
I've been roaming around this site for some time now and found that it is quickly becoming an obsession, so as I will be adding more counter measures in the future, I wanted everything to be nice and neat.
I could not come up with a decent place to mount the CB in this vehicle with out it becoming a nuisance so I decided to hide it:
- The display is located in the lower left corner of the RVM
- Control knobs are located under the stereo
- External speaker for the CB is located in the headliner (no photo)
I also have a remote speaker for the 9500 which is hidden inside the a/c vent just to the left of the stereo. The two LED lights to the left of the stereo are the power and alert LED's for the hard wire install and the Mute button is just below them.
I recently purchased a used 8500 (non X50) that I plan to have repaired then install the rd in the drop down part of the headliner in the center of the vehicle (just above the RVM) and incorporate the display in the the RVM as well. (I'd really have a hard time disassembling my 9500Ix to be a test subject!!)
