Got around to installing an Empeg in my sisters A-Class today. It was pretty easy, with a proper DIN slot and battery in the drivers footwell what more could you ask for?
There is a huge amount of space in around the stereo, behind the switches above the stereo is all empty as is behind the ventilation controls. My PCATS tuner easily fits in there - hey I could probably get 4 of them in there! The space would be handy for car kit boxes. I'm using a very small amplifier - a Blaupunkt BQA-120 4x30W. This could actually fit in
the dashboard, but I'd have nowhere to mount it and it would make things rather fiddly. I mounted it under the passenger seat.
It sounds good - not particularly loud but that is as you can expect with the teeny little speakers. Thanks a lot to Chris for the funky buttons, Patrick for the tuner kit and AndyM for putting it together
