Default Kenwood Christmas (Need Help w/ Install)

Hey all,

Just got my new Kenwood headunit and amp in the mail.
KDC-X879
KAC-X541

Can't wait to get them installed on Knight Fire.
I'm going to use the old twin 10" subs & box from Black Magic.
(BM currently has triple 10s)

Here'* the links...

Yea it looks really cool online, and it moves on it'* own.... which is really neat.

The headunit also directly interfaces with the amp, so you can control everything from the headunit.... digital.... too cool.

I can't wait to get it installed.

As for my triple design in Black Magic, it'* just a triple 10" box that I bought... I believe it was made by JL Audio... but not 100% on that.

:EDIT:

Forgot to mention the Kenwood stuff Black Magic got.....

KPA-HD100 (Heads up Display)
KPA-CP100 (Compass)
KPA-SS100 (Volt/Temp Sensor)

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/product/pr...?productId=669

I've got the CP100 & SS100, and the HD100 is enroute from the USA... care of Harofreak00.....
Will be nice to give the 91 a HUD.... too bad it doesn't display speed.... but I might be able to mod it...

One note. You wont be able to eject a disk while the shifter is in park. One little annoyance, but since I dont use disks it doesnt matter. :P

That'* kinda weird.... but I guess makes sense.
Do you have a music keg, or cd changer? I'm just going to be using the MP3 feature.

:EDIT: Got any pix?
