Default Stock Radio Gain Replacement?

Hey Everyone,

So I was wondering if anyone knows if there is an aftermarket cover or something else to put in the dash were the stock radio gain control is. [see picture] I was looking to replace that because it looks kinda dumb and it not hooked up to the aftermarket radio. Any suggestions will be great.

Did you use a plug into factory wiring harness when you replaced your headunit?

If so..it'* very easy to reconnect the gain slider and have it work again.
If not.. would you like a little bose plate to cover that space?

If you want to reconnect...the info you need is in my install link below.

I was looking at replacing it with just some kind of cover. I don't need to connect the gain slider because the HeadUnit already does that function. I was just looking for some simple cover, but anything you can find would be great!!

You could get a Bose plate, then get a custom emblem to put on it.

Petey, if you are running stock speakers in the back, they're dual-coil. The bass gain only drives ONE of the coils. The HU drives the other. In that case, hook it back up.

If you have aftermarket speakers, get a cover for it.
