2011 Accord Coupe Setup
Bought my 2011 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L a year ago. Love it, but there is not much room for radio mounting. I have been scouring the net the whole year looking for something in my price range that will fit nicely for me. Recently, I came across a CDM-1250 that was in need of some serious cleaning. I got it real cheap from a friend (free) and took the whole thing apart to clean it. Then I purchased a remote head mounting kit off ebay. Here is a summary of the install.
- Display head fits perfectly in the storage spot in front of the shifter. I did not need to use the bracket, as it was able to wedge in there tightly and does not move.
- The amp was mounted under the rear deck in the trunk next to the factory subwoofer. Zero rattles.
- Power wire connected straight to distribution block under hood and fused within 6". Plenty of room on firewall for small hole for wire to pass.
I use this radio for both EMS and Amateur Bands. I have a 1/4 wave VHF mounted on the trunk via lip mount (sorry no picture). If you are interested in knowing more of the install for your own Accord, let me know, would love to help.
Thanks for looking!
