May 28, 2011 Great system but beware of fitting it in Firebirds!

First of all this is a great system. It's easy to use and to understand and is way better in sound quality than the OEM Delco Symphony Sound unit that it's replaced.

However, although the suplied wiring harness was a breeze to match up, the fitment of the unit in my 91 Firebird was far from it! Because of the units longer back it stood proud of the center console by half an inch. This was solved by removing the center console (quite time consuming) and cutting out the locating hole in the back of it for the old unit which then allowed the unit to fit flush.
Also, the replacement surround for the new unit fitted ok, but there is no way to secure the unit to it or to the rear of the console leaving it completely unsecured! After much fabrication I now have the unit secure via four small bolts and another small steel frame.

Overall it's a great unit but I wouldn't say it was a direct fit in the Firebird (I assumed it was) unless you're willing to do some fabrication.

The HD is great when you can pick up a station, the different colors are good too. The only thing I wish the remote had more buttons and bigger. But its a good head unit compared to the sony I had in my car before.
