Where to install radios with no dash?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Thinking about getting radios in my car but I have no dash spot to install them? Anyone out there deal with this and have good ideas where you should put them if you don't have a dash?

Mine has tabs next to the driver seat.  You could wed some on or get some pipe/accessory clamps and do something like this.

I like that. I don't want to see wires and stuff.

Here's my thread of how I cleaned up the wiring. (see page 2)

My intercom is under the passenger seat, out of sight and easy for me to reach down and adjust the two knobs while driving. My radio is mounted on the passenger side of the shifter tunnel behind the front seat. Again, easy to reach back and adjust volume. Have to loosen my belts if I want to change channels and see what I'm changing too, not really an issue for me. Wanted to minimize my poor wiring skills and this seemed to do the trick.

X2 on this thread. I don’t know where to mount my radio and Intercom. I did see a nice little built dash yesterday at the sand show and took a picture of it. I might do something like this.

Still working on dressing up the wiring but installed my intercom on the shift console and the radio on my switch panel.

Started out putting them in different locations, sitting in the seat, and then decided where I liked them best.

Please remember that Radios and Intercoms are not waterproof. The speaker on the front of radios is open to a circuit board that sits underneath it so mounting a radio face up can be exposing it to moister either over night or in unexpected rainy conditions as well as during washing.

Its a good idea to always run a Mic Jack Cover when not using the hand mic as well as an Intercom cable cover.  Other helpful weather proofing options are Dummy Plugs for intercom cables when they are not in use!

 

Hope this helps! :)
