First Gen 5 band EQ Infinity CD player in a 2G (300M)

I was going through my storage of LH parts and i found my first gen CD player i picked up a while back. I always wondered how the 5 band EQ would sound compared to the 2nd gen radio.
So i installed it.




just had to snap off the little alignment pin for the right side mount for it to sit flush.
fits snug.
the only thing is, this radio, for some reason the display doesnt work, everything else works fine, just no display (hoping its fixable).

As far as the sound quality. ( with cheap pioneer speakers in the front doors, and a sail speaker where the middle dash speaker would go) ( factory 6X9's in the rear)


WOW its like night & day compared to my old radio, its so much cleaner & crisper. seems to fill the interior with sound much better than before, with out having to turn it really loud. oh, its also louder. ( now im going to get the infinity GOLD version of what i have) i can only imagine how its going to sound when i get my 360W LHS amp installed.


as far as how it looks, i like it, yes, its a "square peg in a round hole" but it fits. im going to modify the bezel & bring out the radio a little to make it look like it should be there. EDIT : I may end up cutting the radio instead of the bezel. not sure which way i want to go yet.


Here's a video. ( dont mind the music )





just thought i'd share.

Mike,
KEEP IT THE WAY IT IS!!! I had the exact same radio in my first gen before I upgraded. It looked just the same as you have it there. It was a little recessed into the dash area. I still have the factory amp in my car if this is what you are referring to as the 360 watt amp. Need one?

you mean keep the radio in? or do you mean put the original one back or not cut the bezel/radio? lol

the first gen amp is different from the 2G amp, and no thanks, i couldnt use it anyway. ive allready got the amp i need ( along with the floor harness), just havent installed it yet

cut the bezel, they're cheaper and easier to get.

That is cool. IIRC The Infinity, the Infinity Gold, and the non Infinity radios are exactly the same it is the amp in the car that has the system that is different. What is funny is I found the second gen radio you took out sound better in a first gen than the 5 band. LOL

Mike,
I was talking about the fact that IIRC the radio in the first gen looked the same as it does in your 300m now. it was recessed in the dash area. If I was you I would just leave it alone but with the look of the ATC being flush to that bezel I would make the radio flush also and like Veeborg said Its always easier to buy a radio bezel than a radio.

yea ill end up cutting the bezel.




also i tore it apart last night & cleaned the lens and the screen doesnt look fixable, it has what looks like a burned spot on the lower right hand corner.
ill just save up for an infinity gold.

Looks like it sits pretty flush to me...just get that mounting tab on the right hand side and it looks good.
