- Anyone fitted a DAB radio to their car / van?
The stereo in my van isn’t great (early VW T5) and I’m thinking of fitting a new one with digital radio and ipod connectivity. The price seems to have come down a lot in the last year.
So, how easy is it to do and are the aftermarket ones any good? I’ve bought the little hooks to remove the stereo, is it just as easy as buy the new one and connect a few leads and stick it in? I guess I also need an arial for the DAB radio, anyone got experience of the different types?Posted 7 years agoPik n MixSubscriber
I have DAB in my corolla,
It was no more hassle than a standard install of a head unit, you have an areal to feed up the lift side passenger pillar which then sticks you your windscreen.
I have only ever lost a digital signal in car parks and tunnels. Had it for about a year and very impressed.
My head unit is a Sony with ipod, DAB etc. I love it.Posted 7 years agoMadBillMcMadMember
I bought a basic INPHASE unit from dabonwheels & fitted it to my defender.
I went for the basic aerial solution & in general have had no issues. It struggles in the depths of the Peak District but in the main is perfect.
So my aerial uses my original (ordinary) aerial but connecting a powered widget between the existing ordinary aerial & the radio & then lowering the aerial to about a 30cm long.Posted 7 years ago
