Angry Aftermarket Deck ?

You all know that we have controlls on the steering wheel to controll the factory deck, Volume, seek exe exe. Now is there an aftermarket deck that you can buy that ties into the steering wheel buttons so you can still ust the controll on the steering wheel?.I have talked to shops in the past and they don't make one that will do this yet. I think it's extremley stupid with the technoligy we got today but we still dont have a after market deck out yet that will tie into the controlls on the steering wheel and hooks up to the factory dimmer switch. We can fly to the moon but cant do this, you can almost taste the irony it that

Well after some phone calls it turns out that they are making a kit now that ties the aftermarket deck into the steering wheel controlls. So for all of you wondering that same thing you question is awswered. What do some of you got in your Accords for Aftermarket decks? And what speakers out there blow that factory ones out of the water?

or you can just go to best buy for example and they have these modules that turn those controls on the steering wheel into like an optic eye like on the end of any standard remote, they take like only a few minutes to hook and and program the wired "eye" just has to be mounted by like the shifter or somethihgn looking at your aftermarket deck, i think i got my for like 60-70 bucks at best buy.

hmm, which speakers blow the stock ones out of the water? I have an eclipse deck, with Boston Acoustic pro 6.5's up front, MB Quart 6x9's in the rear deck and a beautiful JL 10W7 in the trunk. All power by a Phoenix Gold Route 66 amp. My friends say it sounds nice. I used to have two 12 w6's in the trunk, so Im used to more bass. But the setup mos def blows the stock sht out of the water. Then it kicks the sht into outer space. IMHO...

They sell that kit that turns the steering wheel buttons into an infared remote on crutchfields website. Just visit them and check out the accessories section. They want about 70-80 bucks for it.

Nice idea. I work for BestBuy so I can probably get it way cheaper
