    +1 about the single subwoofer in the center.
    Beautiful workmanship and I'm sure the resultant sound will be awesome.

    My only issue is practically from a drive-ability perspective.
    For example, it starts to rain and after a half stroke the wiper fuse blows (what happened to me, initial amperage pull, probably. Luckily I was at a gas station).
    Or you blow a fuse to a fuel pump. Do you have to remove that entire assembly to get to the fuses because removing it as a single entity might be impossible with the seats in place?

    Just asking!

    It’s is made to come out for service reasons. Now how hard or easy I guess we will see.

    Also you can still get to the fuses on both sides without removing the box. The box set just above them. The chore will probably be removing the whole box to get to the access panel for a major service.

    How? There are two screws on top of the cover all the way to the back by the firewall. The stereo box looks inches from the top.

    Personally I would not install the two screws on top (both sides) for that reason.
    Just trying to help out by anticipating the "what's the worst that can happen" scenario (car, not stereo)

    Good luck!

    Really not too bad based on my experience unless out somewhere and a problem develops. My 360 had this when purchased. Removed and installed OEM Speaker Enclosure with Focals.

    hello, was it plug&play? And can you please share a picture. It makes the most sense to me to install

    I have to admit this is the first radio for the 360/@430 that makes me want to change the stock radio. With the Bluetooth adapter and a suction cup mount I mostly use my cellphone anyway without blocking switches or vents.

    Hopefully someone takes the plunge and post pictures of how this looks installed.

    Cheers,
    Corey

    That’s a really good find. It’s a narrower screen than my pioneer, but I think it fits our cars more. Wireless CarPlay is key.

    Has someone actually installed one curious to see how it looks? Would hate if it blocked vents and buttons

    My main concern with this unit is the width. May have to do a mock up of the screen size to get an idea of fit. Although that will not indicate how much the screen protrudes from the unit.

    Our audio location is too low to avoid a distracted driving charge, to be brutally honest (at least here in the Republix of Ontario, Cda).
    My MB GLE Coupe like other similar cars have them more in line with the road making it less of a hassle from law enforcement.

    Hence, I'm keeping mine only as a radio which I don't use since the engine/Tubi exhaust sound is already intoxicating

    I've got a 10" Joying in my 308 QV - modified the dash surround to fit a flip-up 7" single DIN unit, which died. Very feature packed, but the software can be a bit glitchy. They do offer patches and upgrades, but that's beyond my pay grade. Thinking of going back to the flip-up unit. I know the Clarion is a bit old now, but I like the little horsey. The Pioneer looks good, too.
