Dual HVAC Double Din Kit: Completed Install Thread
 
This thread is for COMPLETED installations only of the JDM Dual HVAC Double Din Kit (see dwolson2's main thread HERE).

This is intended to be a clean, uncluttered reference for those who plan to install the kit. It is NOT for follow-up questions and comments, which should be addressed via PM or e-mail to the author of the post in question. He/she can then edit their post for clarification or content if necessary. Alternatively, you can post questions/comments to the original mega-thread via the link in the first paragraph.

My hope is that we will see at least one install here from every possible model year and audio/nav combination, so that the only task for those about to pull the trigger will be to find the post for their specific vehicle and read the content for parts needed and installation feedback.

To keep the scrolling exercise simple, please stick as closely as possible to the following format (cut/paste/overwrite outline if easier):

Car:
-2006 LGT 5EAT

Factory electronics:
-Standard radio, no sub
-No Nav

Parts used:

-JDM Twin HVAC Double Din adapter (JDM part #H6217AG911 from avoJDM Parts)

- SVX Dc parts (AE64.com)
(14 pin audio cable, i88 adapter)

- JDM Hazard Switch (JDM part #107-090-001 from Japanparts)

Comments (include make/model of your aftermarket head unit if any specific integration issues):

Humorous example: Set car on fire when turned on. Lost job (no car) and house (no job); wife and kids took off (no house).

Just installed this week, sorry the picture is terrible, hopefully I can get some better ones in the near future


Car:
-2005 LGT Wagon LTD 5MT

Factory electronics:
-Standard radio, factory sub under driver's seat
-No Nav

Parts used:

-JDM Dual HVAC Double Din adapter (JDM part #H6217AG911 from avoJDM Parts)
- SVX Dc parts (AE64.com)
(14 pin audio cable, i88 adapter)
- OEM Hazard Switch (See comments)

Comments (include make/model of your aftermarket head unit if any specific integration issues):
-Props to the godfather for making it all possible :)
-Kenwood DNX9960 with Sirius and iPod (Sirius box stuffed down the passenger side of the center stack and the iPod cable is run through one of the mounting bolt holes in the center console)
-I found the best place to mount the Nav and Sirius antenna was behind the cubby on the metal support bar the runs along the dash. I get a perfect signal and it's out of sight.
-Regarding the Hazard switch: It was my assumption that by cutting out the plastic behind the dash and rotating the switch, life would be all good. The problem is the US switch has 2 mounting points that are flush with each other. The JDM switch's 2 mounting points are not even so you need to make some modifications. I haven't finished fixing mine yet.
-The picture shows how the kit fits out of the box without modification

Car:
2007 LGT Sedan 5eat

Factory electronics:
Standard radio, non navigation, no sub

Parts used:
JDM Twin HVAC Double Din adapter (JDM part #H6217AG911 from avoJDM Parts)
SVX I88 harness (blanking out if there was any others hahaha)

Comments (include make/model of your aftermarket head unit if any specific integration issues):
Audio equipment: Eclipse avn 5495 headunit, bluetooth adapter from parrot, back up camera from eclipse, audison bitone processor, focal krx3 3 way component set (partial active), audison lrx 400.1 x 2, audison lrx 250.2, audison lrx 300.4, image dynamics idmax 12 d4 v2 x 2... (work in progress, running the components and two amps with the bitone and headunit at the moment)

some reason i have a speed pulse wire issue, i've got it on the correct one under the dash but for some reason i get no signal from it. i'm not really sure why... however the unit still knows where i am and it averages out my speed where it works without it.

hazard switch i'd recommend getting the jdm one, using the state side one is a royal pain in the ass to get sitting correctly/smooth button push/holding in place on the screws. i'd highly suggest spending the money for less headache come install time.

everything is pretty much a piece of cake though, really the best thing i've done to my car that isn't go fast oriented.

Double DIN Kit install
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello,

Car:

Subaru Legacy Spec B Twinscroll 2004 (Gen IV) Wagon imported into the UK in 2010

Factory Audio:

JDM Radio/CD & MD along with a Panasonic Sat Nav system

Parts used:

Subaru JDM Double DIN kit
Used Sony BT5000 Single DIN Head Unit (Bluetooth & iPod compatible)
Subaru single din cubby hole/pocket
Aerial Adaptor
ISO Wiring Adaptor to connect from the Sony to the Car loom

Install:

Very straighforward. Removed the JDM system and assembled the Double DIN kit. connected it up and all worked first time. I didn't bother with a new head unit as I had a seperate Sat Nav unit and felt that the Sony set up still had plenty of mileage in it having used it in my previous Legacy a BG5 GT Twin Turbo

Best regards,

David

Hi,
Car: 2003 JDM Legacy BP5

Factory electronics:
  • Standard single CD radio, no sub
  • Single Zone A/C (N.B. JDM car not USDM)
  • Nav (but doesn’t work here)
Parts used:
  • JDM single zone A-C Silver AV Panel Set (Part #H6217AG902SC from Japanparts.com)
  • PC2-44-4 Subaru ISO Lead & PC2-36-0 Female to Bare End ISO Connection Adaptor
  • Alpine CDE-W203E (basic but just needed something decent that can receive a) local radio frequencies & b) playback MP3/WMA/AAC discs & USB flashdisk. Plan an upgrade in the near future)
Comments:
Install went extremely well & straight forward. Hazard switch fitted as standard & no need for the i88 harness since the factory one fits JDM kit without requiring any modifications or additions (therefore did not need SVXdc's i88 adapter harness). The stereo doesn't fit completely flash but satisfied as is :cool:

Humorous: Customs here stung me with 25% duty on the AV Panel set :mad:

my x-post from the main 100+ thread.

first post, figured i'd make it good.

lurked this thread for a couple weeks, got in touch with SVXdc and japanparts. couple weeks later and this is my end result... :) pretty happy with it!

day.
http://legacygt.com/forums/attachmen...1&d=1303274062

and night.
http://legacygt.com/forums/attachmen...1&d=1303274062

couple notes:
-used jdm hazard button
-12v relay to bypass parking lockout
-painted the panel around the shifter, but not the inner silver part. worked well. matte black paint matched really smooth
-laketown speed and sound helped me a lot to get the dash kit to fit with minimal gaps (still a small one on the right side, but it's minimal) THOSE GUYS ROCK!
-removing the horizontal locking position of the clips on the shifter bezel allows the shifter to sit in place without being shoved to the right from the climate control panel
-used axxess to hook up steering wheel controls (provided by SVXdc)
-used pioneer p4300dvd. has a nice dimming feature that turns down the brightness with headlights which is nice and it makes the audio from my ipod (and other sources i imagine) sound 10x better through the HK Speakers.

quick unrelated question, can anyone confirm if this would work on an '09 outback without modification?

^jdm dual console box? i read a bunch of threads on it, one person had to mod their EDM box a bit to get it to work, but the consensus seems to be the JDM box works with not modifications.

finally, last but not least, THANK YOU SVXdc!!!!
^seriously, if you are going to do this mod, go through that guy, he rocks!

Car: 2005 Outback XT
Head Unit: Pioneer AVIC Z120BT
Additional Gear: Sirius Sat Radio

Comments: The install was pretty straight forward. The bummer part was there was not enough room for the sirius modules behind the dash. I ended up having to put them under the driver seat.

how much did our government rape you guys for the din to pass through customs?

David_S_Walker 04-28-2011 03:51 AM

DIN Kit customs charges
 
PM sent as this probably isn't for discussion in this thread

Best regards,

Mine was $440 total and including the JDM hazard switch. But it was so worth it.

To be honest, I don't recall. It was a color my paint guy had sitting in his paint locker. Just got lucky with it. He finished it off with a flat clear coat.
