  • Double Din to Single Din Trim

    Hello,
    I am not an subject expert so bear with me. I am changing the head unit on my 06-X1 which is Double Din Clarion. I want to change it to either a Clarion M502 or a Kenwood KMR 550U. First off does anyone own these and are they happy. Second does anyone know where I can get the appropriate trim to make this conversion.

    I went from a double din to single in my truck and got the adapter/trim from Crutchfield.
    Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.

      Rooster,

      although the Clarion has a large face, it should be a standard 2x7 opening. So unless the factory got super sloppy cutting the hole, a single DIN head-unit should physically fit. This would probably just leave some screw holes to cover. You can fill them with some deck colored gel-coat repair putty, or fabricate a cosmetic bezel out of some 1/16" thick ABS that's commonly stocked and used by most mobile audio sales/installs outlet. Easy to cut and shape and it can easily be sandwiched between the boat and head-unit.

      Hers one we did in a center console. We replaced the Clarion CMD4. The cut-out was too large, so the new mounting cage didn't reach the existing opening, so we actually needed to secure the fabricated bezel to the wall.

          Thanks,

          Anyone have reccomendations on a head unit with Blue Tooth already integrated in the head unit?

            No, but the Alpine KCE-400BT add-on unit works well with their marine head-units.
