Do I need a double DIN cage to fit a double DIN headunit?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all,

 

Potentially silly question. My Kenwood DMX7018DABS came with a cage. Unfortunately said cage has been broken and cannot be used. I can't find a replacement one to buy online. I have purchased the Connects2 CT24BM08 fascia which comes with a frame and what appears to be two side plates. 

 

My question is, can I fit the double DIN unit using the connects2 fascia without a cage, or do I still need to buy another cage. 

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi Stu,

 

I did reply to your question on the facia on my post, you may not have seen it............

 

This is the facia one that I bought in the end...

I wasn't expecting much, but it turned out better than I thought. The alpine unit is really light, I simply attached the facia to the stereo and pushed into the hole, its really tight and a snug fit. It is simply wedged in place, I have had it there for 8 months now and no signs of moving.

 

Carl.
