Aftermarket Radio Install Questions.
Hello everyone, I am new to this site my first post. I apologize if this has been asked before, but I have been searching and have be unable to come up with an answer either here or on the other cobalt ss site.
I have a 2007 LT cobalt, 5 speed base model. No pioneer/No OnStar.
My questions are, I am installing a Kenwood DDX672BH. It has variable illumination adjustments already. When I install the radio I plain on using the proper harness and all the needed hardware to do it. I want to retain as much of factory as I possibly can.
So to my question will I be able to retain the factory illumination or will it be gone and I have to use the radio's settings? The radio's harness has an input illumination wire that will auto dim if hooked up.
I am also installing new speakers all the way around. I am interested in installing the baffles due to not wanting to ruin a bran new pair of speaker to water. The question is what is the rite baffle depth?
I know it has to fit the depth of the speaker but I don't want to run the risk of them being to deep and not fitting properly.
Also what are your opinion's on cutting out a section of the baffle yah or nay on the hole for better sound or cupped?
Thanks for the info.
