Hey all. I built a little aluminum console tol hold my radio, CB, and two cup holders. The CB and Radio are mounted vertically now(Face up). I bought a mediocre Alpine deck and was flippin through the manual for wire colors when I happened upon a disheartening bit of information. It says "Do not mount unit more that 35 degrees from horizontal." Then I cried. So for the time being I just have an old Alpine tape deck in there. The wiring plug in the back of the unit is the same as my new Alpine, so its a swap in/ swap out deal. I'm getting tired of listening to DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. I mean their good, but man, i can only listen to Parents Just Dont Understand so many times. Question: Have you guys ever mounted your CD Player vertically? I've heard their built to be on the horizontal plain, and thats the kind of shock the laser is meant to take. Mounting it otherwise can cause severe skipping and crap like that. I'm worried it may damage the alignment of the laser or something. I could not put it in the console there and make that hole a cell phone/ change / other crap hole, and mount the radio somewhere else. I dont want to bastardize my dash with the sawzall. Before doing that I would try and find someone with an already cut dash and swap as mine is in great shape. I did some searching on hear and heard mention of somehow rigging up remote controlls through a secondary radio. I have a crappy unit in the stock location currently that isnt used. ... or maybe I should just totally rebuild my console so I can have the deck at a 35 degree angle. If I cant use the deck, I may just donate it to my Mustang project. That will need a deck. Any thoughts/comments/concerns?
