IIRC the hole is sleeved I think. It's not open to the cooled air inside as there is an inner wall around the hole.

With a 2 ohm amp you have plenty of options for running more than 2 speakers. Call crutchfield and ask them for advice.

I went for a Fusion marine stereo that has a wired remote that I was able to mount on a gooseneck so I have easy access to it below the clock (in the "cut-out" area in front of fuses). The remote is genius since it actually has a volume knob instead of just buttons. Also replaced all four speakers with JL Audio 6.5's and put a Sound Ordinance powered sub under the passenger seat (fits tight, but fits).

Still some tweaking to be done - Bass better than expected - A little weak on the mid bass as doors and rear enclosures don't help the cause.

The Fusion doesn't have bluetooth (because it's a marine stereo) so I purchased a simple Parrot set-up that I have to integrate into the system for hands-free calling. Cool part about the Fusion is you stick an iPod in it, so access to plenty of music.

I will post pictures at some point if anybody is interested.

I just got the kicker px50.2 and should have it up and running soon. I'll post my findings. For me it was a great option as I don't have a head unit or speakers so I run just this.

So finally got the truck together and installed the kicker system. Works well. I have a very loud landrover 110 with Diesel engine and paired it with el cheapo $30 all weather speakers and it works great. Gets way louder than I can listen to it without distortion. I can hear it clearly over engine and road noise and its a simple install. Although I had to go and make it difficult by putting the amp in the back inside my fuse box

I did have to buy an extension for the 3.5mm jack line and make my own extension for the power to the control unit but that wasn't a big deal.

Chris,

I think you could add one of these

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1209493362...84.m1438.l2649

connected to the apple connector ...and have Bluetooth streaming.

At least that's my plan

Thanks for the update.

The iPod sits on the amp so the extension is for the control unit. That connects to the system via a cable with a 3.5mm plug and a bullet connector end wire for powering the blue back light.

I also have the stock Clarion radio with an auxiliary cable option attached so I can play music from my Iphone. The OE radio + ipod dock I got from John at gb4x4radios.com sounds great, I would like to add a subwoofer someday though. I have a soft top D90 though, so your LE should be much quieter, so I'm told. Shoot John an email, he has an LE as well which has a great sounding system in it, I've heard it. Not sure how much your wanting to keep the "stock" look but I think the Clarion radios+Ipod capability that John offers are a great compromise. I too am somewhat of an audiophile but have not yet figured out a feasible way of installing a Rega turntable in my 90, ha. Hope that helps.
Any advice on removing the stock stereo?

Piece of cake to remove. It might simply pull up from the console, but pull from the cassette mouth. If not, use a very small Phillips screwdriver or straighten a wire hanger and push into the two small holes at the top edge and release the holding clips. Remove the head unit from the cassette mouth. Remove the connectors at the rear. Don't cut those connectors, but use the proper adapters for the new radio you wish to install.

If you want to sell the original head unit please PM me.

Thanks for the reply. I tried to place a small Phillips in each hole and couldn't get it to release. Will try again!

Gravity may be working against you. Try a wire hanger, straighten both ends and try to make it so that you can push into the two holes at the same time, release and pull.

Not sure which defender you have. But try to go through the cubby. Open your cubby storage door, Remove the screws holding the cubby tray, then reach for the radio.

The radio will be in its own tray, secured with pop up finger tabs that will prevent the tray from sliding out by pressing up against the cubby ceiling.

Reach in towards the radio tray, feel around the tray on all sides, push those finger tabs in while you pull up on the whole radio with your other hand. It's a little pain, but you'll get it

Your new stereo should have come with the tools to get your current stereo out. You can look it up on YouTube as well.
