Mk5/H 3 Door Astra ICE Setup???
hi there, i'm installing a ICE setup for my friends astra and was wondering if i could check with you guys that im covering all aspects of the installation e.g. speakers mounts/adapters etc etc
this is my friends car that i will be doing the installation on just so you guys know, it is the Astra 1.9CDTI
i am going to be installing the current set up:
****by installing this head unit, i am going to presume that the original display unit in the car will not function****
Front - Kenwood: KFC-S702P - 17cm components
Rear - Kenwood: KFC-S1793 - 17cm 3-way 250W speakers
Subwoofer - Kenwood: KFC-W3012 - 12" subwoofer + box
Kenwood: KAC-6203 2-channel Amplifier
Connects 2: CT23VX22 - Vauxhall / Opel Astra 2008> Silver Double Din Facia
Connects 2: CT25VX06 - Vauxhall Corsa/Astra front 2005>
****i'm presuming these mountings will fit for the rear speakers as well?****
Connects 2: Vehicle Interface -Vauxhall Astra, Vectra, Corsa, Tigra, Antara
Connects 2: Connects2 Kenwood Patch Lead - CTKENWOODLEAD
I am planning on giving my friend the go ahead on the following items i have shown so i can begin the installation next week, as you can see the total bill for this set up is quite hefty, so if you could give me piece of mind that i have chosen the correct parts for his car then that would be great , opinions on the setup are always welcome.
thanks for taking the time to help me out and read through all this, i was actually thinking of maybe doing a full tutorial of when i come to installing it as there doesn't seem to be a complete guide only part guides for different sections of the car.
First things first, you do not need adapters for the rear speakers.
Next, the display will still function , it will just not show the radio info. But he will be able to set the clock and date from the steering wheel controls and also access the trip computers via the same means.
You are missing a active aerial adapter (part number fails me right now)
Lastly, have I missed something here? what is going to drive the speakers, as I take it the amp is for the sub? so are you intending to use the headunit to drive the speakers? If so why? Components are best heard amped and those rear speakers will need something more substantial to drive them. Also 3 way is overkill for the rears when a stanard 2 way co-axial will do the job sufficiently.
