Hey what's up? I'm installing my stereo in my Dime this weekend. This is the first time I install a car stereo. I've seen it done a couple of times but never actually done it. Is there anything I should know before I install?? Any special accessories I'll need or that you guys recommended?? Thanx ahead of time!!

Well.. Solder everything. The sound difference between soldered and not soldered is amazing. Just what exactly are you installing? I put a 1.6k amp and 2 10's w/ 2 6x9's and 2 tweets in my Xcab last night. I took the contact to the fuse block where I attached the power for the amp and cleaned it well. Don't use the cruise control fuse for the amp trigger, it is noisy. What exactly are you trying to do? Just put an aftermarket HU in?

get a wiring harness for the cd player, saves mad time
This is true. I had to cut and splice and solder into my wiring harness, but I am using the stock HU.
