Can I just fit any standard single DIN player in the slk, I assume I can find plastic covers to cover the gap. I don't have much money to spend, especially that I also need speaks. All I need is USB and radio. Possible?
right before checkout I decided to confirm with support and they confused me by saying:
This is the harness for power and ground. There's no way to connect the speaker wires though that though. It will tell you that online and you may already know, but you have to run new speaker wire to bypass the factory amp.
I have no idea what they are saying, it seemed to me like this would work, is not this the point of the harness.
I had a high-end audio shop in Portland do the single-DIN change to Sunhilde; check out my garage for an image. I got the Alpine CDE-HD149BT radio; AM/FM/Satellite with single CD player, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity, and more that I don't use. My invoice isn't the most detailed, and this was done almost two years ago, but there's a line item for an MET 9987-13 which I believe is the dash fascia kit. An MB antenna adapter and MB harness are also listed, without part numbers unfortunately. They may be standard MB parts? There's also a PAC SWI-CP5 steering wheel control interface listed, which obviously ensures that the buttons on the wheel work with the radio.
