    kenwood's website will have the faceplate dimensions and possibly crutchfield. it's a very large faceplate vertically and not as wide as a normal face horizontally iirc. it's pretty thick and needs some space under the face to open all the way.

    very solid hu and tons of adjustment potential. I liked it a lot better than the clarion unit in my boat.

    Default kenwood KMR-700u

    Isn't it a 2 part radio similar to the factory MB Quart unit? Has the face where you put the iPod but then the main part is separate and mounted elsewhere. Maybe I'm wrong but I thought I saw a pic of it like that.

    I have the 550U which is great too! I think there is a new model that replaced that one though.

    It is a 2 peace but not quite like that.

    It has the brain part seperate but it does actually look like a normal stereo head unit, the face plate is larger then normal for the controls and display. It then has the case of a normal stereo and within that your Iphone plugs in and goes in side, or a thumb drive so its water tight.

    Right, that's what I meant. I was just using the MBQ as a reference to the separate brain. The separate brain is actually what turned me off from using the 700. That's just one more thing to mount the way I looked at it.
