DD will fit. Just fine.

The problem is that the dash face on later C4s is a little smaller... so there might be some trimming required.

Now, 1984-89 C4s will not easily accept a double din, it will take a 1.5 din, tho. I think, with some shuffling and some creativity, a DD can be made to fit, but it would not be easy. The Climate Control would have to shift down... and I think the DIC would have to shift up. I would have to measure and see where the extra space could be used.

On my 1992, I had to trim out a bunch of the facia to get this one to fit, the Pioneer AVH-4200NEX. This was due to the removable face-plate that also tilts (which is nice due to the low spot in the dash). I got this unit mainly for its Android Auto abilities.

I ran the USB through to middle to an existing gap near the console door hinge. I then added an anti-vandal type switch in the open tray (where the ride control option would go) for an antenna delete. The button is facing the front, so it it is easy to just reach down and toggle it. I originally had a silver with blue LED, but then changed it to all black chrome with an orange/amber LED. It is hooked up to the dimmer circuit, so it fades with the dash, even though you don't really see it.

Some of these panels are really quite scuffed up (due to 25 years of use). The camera really shows that off.

USB Cable pass-through.



Antenna Delete Illuminated.

Help the pictures of the speakers installed are broken. I would like to see any pics of 2 or 3 way front component speakers.

Could you add information about fitting small 8 subs under the driver and passenger seats? Would an Alpine PWE-S8 fit?
