Very, very nice install!!

I have a real liking for Impreza's- problem for me is I am 6' 8" tall and simply cannot drive one :(

You have done a great job of getting so much gear into a small space- and must say that the placement of the RH-96 is an interesting one. Does it cause any rear vision problems at night with the backlight above the mirror? Otherwise it is a good spot as your eyes don't stray too much from the road.

The TM-D700 is an excellent radio- use one myself in the car.

The antenna's compliment the setup nicely!

Well done, regards Commscanaus.

That, mi amigo, is almost as beautiful as Venezuelan women!

Which are not quite as beautiful as Colombian women (in case my wife is reading this). :D

Very nice!

Are you running an external speaker on your BCT15? I don't have one on my BCD996T and it's mounted in pretty much the same place - the WRX version of the car is quite loud IMO and I am going to need an amplified speaker eventually.

How well do those antennas work there? Where did you run the cabling for them?

Hello Jay911, I have 2 speaker, one under the seat for uniden scann, and one over the dash for my kenwood dual band, and oaxial cables were installed under the carpet. Thanks you.

How is the remote head attached?

Is it to the windshield or some sort of bracket? Anything of substance that I apply to the windshield seems to fall eventually.

Looks great!

Is there an echo in here? :lol:

How is the radio head (and light head) attached to the windscreen? Double stick tape or velcro?
Double stick, work fine...

If it's that 3M stuff that comes with glass mount antennae and DashLaser brackets, it isn't going anywhere. That stuff is like nails.

Can you show a close up of where the stobes were installed ?
I'm fixing to strobe the rear of my '07 Impreza OBS and I'm looking to see what others have done.


I've got a Yaesu FT-8900 and a Kenwood TK-730G in mine.
I'm a volunteer firefighter so I get to run code to the station for emergency calls.
