They assured me it would be compatible. Fingers crossed.

I'll post as soon as I know.
Good luck. I hope it works because I want one of those.

Only thing that bothers me about that one in no RCAs. I'd still need a low pass filter.

Actually after reading the description, it says it has them so it may be the way to go. Would I need anything else to install it if I got it? I'm starting a new job next week and was going to buy this as a congratulatory gift to myself.

Freakin sweet setup! one question though...dont you only need a 4-channel amp because you have a mono amp as well?

I may be missing something so sorry ahead of time if I am

The first system I bought (Movewell) was nearly identical to this one and was completely plug and play. (Except it didn't play, lol). So you won't need to buy anything else. I'd wait until I make sure this one is compatible first though.

If you don't have a backup camera you can buy one and add it to this system. That's what I did.

This is installed already. More pics to come.

I found the V60 online for less $ than the F30 (4 channel amp). Same capability as 4 channel and then some.

Where is that mounted? I would want it to look oem, that's one of the things I'm picky about.

5-channel car amplifier
50 watts RMS x 4 + 200 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms
75 watts RMS x 4 + 300 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms
150 watts RMS x 2 bridged at 4 ohms + 300 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms

mono subwoofer car amplifier
300 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (500 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms)
300 watts RMS x 1 at 1 ohm

I ran a 0 awg power cable in case I ever need to complete the big 3. Sound is awesome. More than enough power for the size of the car! I'm not into bass competitions or anything like that; I honestly don't get it... To each their own. I kept the sync radio w/o MFT. The Mepra kit looks awkward and I have heard the buttons feel cheap... Not to mention the button backlight is orange not blue. If they tweak the design I'll prob upgrade the deck with GPS. The only drawback is i cant tune the stereo nearly as well as aftermarket radio allows. For now I'll use my phone for navigation if I need it. I ordered the Kuda mount with iPhone 4 adaptor.

I am also picky about that. If you look close you can see it mounted. I looks very OEM IMO.

That looks good. How long do you think it will take for that new head unit to come in? I'm really interested to see how it goes, I'll probably order within the next 2 weeks.
