Alpine Perfect Fit DVD/Navi Install **Heavy Pics**

I just finally finished up the install of the Alpine Perfect Fit system after a week long process. This consist of the dask kit which was a joint venture between Alpine and Scosche as well as the Alpine INE-Z928HD. The first true 8" aftermarket head unit.

As previously posted, this kit is not as plug and play as they tend to advertise. Much confusion between Alpine and their vendors as to the installation instructions to replace the Shaker 500 system.

After many hours of splicing, soldering, trial and error with the wiring harness, Resistors are not needed in the speaker leads as initially instructed!

It seems as if this Perfect Fit wiring harness is faulty and needs some modification in order to retain the factory side door subwoofers. Without modifying it, there was a horrible noise coming through the speakers. Crutchfield sent me a replacement Alpine wiring harness which was also faulty as well.

This will require a 12v - 5v converter attached to the amp turn on wire. If not, you will hear a loud pop when turning the car on an off.













I had to attached a separate Metra wiring harness in order to get the subwoofers working correctly and not sounding like crap.



I also decided to remove the stock USB and Aux ports in the console and replaced them with the supplied Alpine cables.















Decided to use the map light to hide the new microphone. You can see the microphone mount in the back still attached. Looks so much better now.









I have to say I am extremely impressed with the dedication and determination from Crutchfield tech support. Much thanks to Mike B and Chris B.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.
