I got my new Clarion MAX675VD double din head unit installed. I replaced the 6 disc changer. What's cool is I made a DVD mp3 disk that holds more songs than the previous unit could have held with 6 discs. The dvd I had in during the picture has all Led Zeppelin albums, all Robert Plant's solo albums, 2 Page/Plant albums, and about 4 other miscelaneous Zeppelin albums on it... I think somewhere near 30 discs on that one dvd lol. Not to mention I have the Ipod adapter hooked up, which really makes no reason to have a disc at all lol. The only problem I have is that the Scoche dash kit won't snap in all the way... It's like the middle pins won't lock, so it's being held in by 4 corners.. Not really noticable, but I don't like the fact that it's not 100% flush. I tried and tried but couldn't get it to snap in right.

aduncan,

Set-up looks nice! :thumbsup:

What did you do with the stock unit? Interested in selling? If so, PM me what you are looking to get for it.

The only 6 disc unit I seen on ebay, was one for the camry, that looked very similar to ours, but it was 450 bucks... the other 6 disc units, that were all below 200 bucks, were the little ones you put in your trunk, or under the seat..

The clarion I have is great, when you hook up your ipod, your screen on your ipod says clarion, then your touch screen head unit turns basically into the ipod, and you can scroll through songs and stuff pretty much as if it was a giant ipod.

Were those just the 6 disc or the JBL 6 disc?
Oh, I thought that was one in the same. There's a 6-disc OEM (Eclipse?) and a JBL 6-disc?

I guess they're just regular 6-disc units. Heck mine looked JUST LIKE those. I guess mine was 6-disc?! I only put one disc in it at a time...until I replaced it, heh.

lol, so did I, in my opinion 6 disc changers are useless unless you only have 6 discs you ever listen to lol... Now, if our trucks played mp3's, and I could fit about 11 discs worth of music on one, then I probably would have put 6 discs in and would have been fine... not having mp3's is really the main reason I switched my unit... I couldn't believe to find a "premium" unit with a 6 disc changer, steering wheel controls, in the year 2007 that couldn't play mp3's... blows my mind really.

Yeah, if i sell my jbl 6 disc, i want to also sell all the speakers and stuff with it. Otherwise I'll keep the 6 disc jbl head unit, and throw that sucker back in when I sell it/trade it in. If someone wants to buy the whole thing from me, it will give me an excuse to switch out EVERYTHING lol.
