it may require relocating the factory unit separate from the faceplate - essentially creating a remote display. that way i don't have to deal with the entire head unit inside the dash.

similar to installing a LOC to feed a signal to an amp, you can install a LOC to feed a signal to a headunit. You just need to be careful of volume settings for the factory and aftermarket head units to prevent clipping. Basically, figure out the maximum signal from the factory head unit that has no distortion and never exceed it.

the real purpose though is to allow you to have a good CD player as a source for competition purposes. That bypasses all filters in the factory system.

i haven't even started looking for a place for another head unit... hopefully below the A/C controls and hopefully behind the factory cover.

ahhh

ya below ac would be perfect i think. that cubby comes out with 2 screws and when it is out, you have access around glove box area to run cables.

what year and model is yours? 2013s, the hfl sits below the anc under the radio. 2014s dont have an hfl unit below it.

did you unplug a mic? if so that is also the mic for bluetooth, i found that out from experience.

also i would put the LOC preamp if u have honda premium sound.
The 2014 Accord Sport, LX, and EX trim levels no longer have the Handsfree Control Unit (Bluetooth) hardware module. The 2014 Accord EX-L and Touring still has the Handsfree Control Unit (Bluetooth) hardware module.

yes.

OEM depth concerns me.

after much deliberation an EX-L is out of the picture. I will avoid the CVT. The 6MT only comes in LX, Sport, or EX.
