Talking (UPDATE) Install Complete: Kenwood 9990HD w/Scosche

Very excited that install day is almost here! Will be dropping her off in the morning. I've got a little list of things to discuss with my install dude.

Best place to mount microphone?
Best place to mount antenna?
Can USB's be mounted in center console or where is the best place?
Tape over speaker inside Scosche if blinkers/sound is too loud (?)
Installing Kenwood backup camera: Can it be mounted without drilling?

Things to check for:
Backup sensors and steering wheel controls working


Also, what is a decent price for Dynamat, including installation in doors and rear deck?

Is there anything more y'all can think of that should be addressed beforehand?

Thanks a bunch!

I'll try and answer some of your questions.

1 I have mine mouted right next to the rear view mirror, It is hardly visible.
2 I removed my center speaker so I use it to mount the antenna it not seen.
3 Yes you van use the the center console for the usb. Just take off the rear cover useing the 2 phiilps screws. Unplug the factory cable in connect the new cable. I used this cable cable.

4 The blinkers does not go thru the microphone.

5 I do not any thing about the Kenwood back up camera. I have a crimestoppers that mounts on the License plate.

6 The backup sensors does not work. I have a Pioneer head unit and the streering wheels controls work ok

7 did put in speakers so I do not know any thing about the Dynamat so I can not help you with that.

That all I can tell

If you have IPOD/iphone and you want to play from it you need the cable KCA-iP202. It does reach the center console hole where the factory connection was at but stretched. So i have mine in the glove compartment. I did however utilize a usb to mini cable as my 2nd usb cable to connect to the factory USB connection. That's the one i use for firmware updates or to add pictures

Doesnt sound bad at all in my opinion. The speaker is in the back of the dash kit behind the touch screen.

The one I have (Third Eye TE-SBC) was mounted with some type of adhesive instead of drilling. However the mount has the whole to drill.

SWC For the 9990 you will have to mod the wires. Here is the link to the PDF i received from Scosche. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/attach...0&d=1337862200

I did mine in 2 phases.
1st phase I did the trunk only. I used 1 pack of Ballistic SSBK at 250 for material and 250 for labor
2nd phase I did the entire rear of the inside of the car including the rear side panels & top of the rear deck. I also did the doors (on the door panel and on the door). Used 2 packs of Roadkill RKX36B at $350 and one pack of Roadkill RKO12 ( this is foam pad) for $75. Labor for the 2nd phase was 550

camarograna2 - Thank you so much!


Other than the uncertainty with the cable (see below), everything is set, thanks to both yours and caddyroger's replies.

Perfect on the mic

Where center speaker was

Want to go this route with the antenna for sure

So i have mine in the glove compartment. I did however utilize a usb to mini cable as my 2nd usb cable to connect to the factory USB connection. That's the one i use for firmware updates or to add pictures

I ordered the KCA-iP202 cable and it is suppose to arrive today (Thursday). The 2 USB's that come from the back of the 9990 headunit are pretty short. Is this cable suppose to replace the short iPod/iPhone cable? If so, I will more than likely need to run it to the install guy before the headunit is put back together. Am I correct in my thinking on this?

Good to know. I saw on the kit where the speaker is, but will wait to do anything until I hear it first.

The one I have (Third Eye TE-SBC) was mounted with some type of adhesive instead of drilling. However the mount has the whole to drill.

Thanks!

So glad there is a fix! Printed and will take it with me. With tunes sounding so good/loud) I doubt I will hear them, but still want them to work if possible.

I did mine in 2 phases.
1st phase I did the trunk only. I used 1 pack of Ballistic SSBK at 250 for material and 250 for labor
2nd phase I did the entire rear of the inside of the car including the rear side panels & top of the rear deck. I also did the doors (on the door panel and on the door).

Wow! This is crazy good stuff. Serious business!!

Edit my response. I took a look at the radio now and i see what you mean. the 2 usb female connections are for you to connect your USB cables.

The KCA_iP202 will be what is connected to your IPOD/IPHONE so you will not need apples cable. That cable has a male USB on one end and the apple connection on the other end.


Im using the radios 2nd usb connection to plug a Male to Mini-B 5pin Male connection. the mini_B 5 pin connects to the factory usb hub that is in your center armrest compartment. I use this for picture and firmware updates and i bought it from monoprice. This one i bought 6feet so it would be long enough. http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

**Note you cant use apple products on this as it wont play the songs.



By the way, where in Texas are you?

Perfect. Thanks so much! I'm in the Fort Worth area. Not too far from Keller at all.

Shouldn't be too much longer until I get to go pick her up. So excited to hear and see everything installed!!

LOVE this system!

PERFECT INSTALL!! Car Toys rocks!! So happy I took it to them. I love everything about this system and could not be more pleased with the sound. With windows down, sunroof back, blastin' down the highway, PURE CLARITY with lots of loudness. YES!! So glad I had the Dynamat installed, too.

Unfortunately, yet another issue was found that has to be resolved from the original BAD install. (See "Issues with new Install" thread)

When pulling the panel back on the passenger side rear window, it was discovered that the defrost thing had been broken and hanging loose. Now to figure out how to handle this. Not cool and not sure what the fix for it is. Will the entire back window have to be replaced???? Any ideas? Hoping it's nothing THAT drastic.

Thanks Kevin. Hoping it's not a big deal to repair. Nightmare is a good word for it. Just ordered a new JL amp to replace the other. Polk went on and off several times again today after playing a while. Must be overheating.

SO glad I have a new install guy. He's super awesome!

I hope you love yours as much as I love mine!! It has SO many tuning options it's unbelievable! Hope you will let me know how you like yours.

Can't wait to have the Polk amp removed Thursday and my JL installed. Had a couple of long road errands to run this weekend... perfect weather... the Polk cutting in and out constantly made it not so nice.

Thank you so much for the phone call & for remembering me, Dennis. I really appreciate it! If I had not found the used one, I definitely would have ordered one from you. Thanks again!

Thumbs up System complete!

Today, Car Toys replaced the faulty Polk amp with the JL that came in yesterday.
Sounds super great!! Thought I would share a before & after.
The only thing I see that was given up was the outside temp. ???


Happy as a pig!!


If I can get the broken defrost thing fixed, everything will be awesome.
Checking with glass peeps to see what needs to be done. No reply as of yet from BB's GM...

I had a terminal broke off of the rear window defroster. It was just just disconnected where it was soldered at. The picture is to blurry to see the detail of the fitting and connection If it does not have a covering on and just came off where it is soldered on it can be fixed cheap. You will need a heavy duty soldering gun like a 100 or more watts and some solder. Heat the fitting and melt some solder to it. Take the fitting press it to the area where it came from with the soldering iron. Heat it until the solder melts. Release the trigger so the iron will cool down but do not take pressure off the terminal until the solder gets hard. The tip of the iron may get stuck on the terminal but heating it wiil free it up

Thank you SO much for this!! I was hoping so much that it wasn't a big deal! If it is as simple as that, there will be no reason to continue with BB. I would rather not have to and just be done with it all. I really appreciate you taking time to give me step-by-step instructions. I can do this! You truly made my night!
