I have decided to use a marine remote for my stereo and mount that to the dash to save space and avoid havng the stereo stolen (I come from an age where that was popular-not sure if it is anymore). I plan on doing the rear cockpt wall glove box and I am looking for some ideas as to where to mount the stereo unit. Since I won't need to access it often was thinking of mountng it on top of the cockpit wall glove box and face it towards the rear.
Any ideas/comments/success stories/pictures would be appreciated.
It sounds like you want a setup similar to mine. I've got a Sony marine receiver in the trunk mounted in a plastic box that I purchased from Crutchfield. I've got the remote controller mounted on my transmission tunnel. I'm also running a Sony four channel amp with four Infinity speakers. (Two in the rear bulkhead and two in the kick panels.)
I mounted a Hiddden Audio verticle in the very forward ceter location of the trunk It uses a RF ( Radio Frequency) remote, not the traditional IR (Infer Red) remote. I have driven the car 2600 miles since late June and I have not even thought about a radio. The pipes sing to me. I put 350 miles on it last week just looking at fall foliage "No Radio".

Arch, how many speakers do you have in there? Any subs?
