Installing XTL5000 in 2016 Yukon XL - Any Suggestions

Postby kdean7 » Sun May 22, 2016 6:31 pm

Looking for suggestions on where to mount an XTL5000 in a 2016 Yukon XL using an 03 control head. No room under front seats, can't tell if under second row seats has enough room or enough airflow. Has anyone done one? Any pics for recommendations?

plenty of room under rear seats. We mounted an APX7500, 2 CDM 1250 remotes Smart siren platinum and rumbler under the seats.On a 2015 tahoe. You have to remove the padding and fit a piece of 1/2 in plywood under the carpet use the seat mounts to hold the plywood in place. screw the radio mounting plate to the plywood.

Was that a bench seat or the two individual seats? That sounds like a bench seat with all that.
