#271 of 317 10.2" Ceiling Mount DVD in 08 xB
Aug 19, 2007 (2:14 pm)
Has anyone installed a 10.2" ceiling-mount DVD player in a 08 xB?
Can you still see the back on the rearview mirror?
I am looking at Audiovox Shuttle system from Bestbuy and Circuitcity, but I don't know if it will block the rearview.

Simple, just go to Crutchfield and put in a 2008 xB and it will tell you what fits where. Looks to be 6 1/2" in the front doors, same as the gen 1 xBs.
I think you also have to be careful (like the 1st gen) if you just replace the front door speakers since the dash mount "tweeters" are wired in parallel with the front door mid-range speakers. You will either want to disconnect the factory "tweeters" or replace both the sets with a component set of speakers. If you just replace the door speakers the sound is not likely to improve and the resulting impedance load for the stereo may be bad for it.
In the 1st gen xBs the door speakers are riveted in place, if the 2nd gen is the same you will have to drill out the rivets (be sure to wear safety glasses) and get an adapter pair or make some from MDF. If you order from Crutchfield they will include the adapters and speaker wire harnesses (no cutting) for free with the speaker purchase. I am partial to Polk components, and you can find them a lot cheaper (normally) on fleabay than Crutchfield and buy the adapters and still come out ahead. Can't return them for a full refund if you don't like then like you can at Crutchfield, however.

I want to retain my OEM Pioneer receiver and upgrade the door speakers as well as add tweeters and a subwoofer. Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you are sticking with the OEM stereo and not adding an amp, then you need something efficient.
I would probably go with some component speakers - put the mids in the doors in the place of the factory speakers and try the tweeters in the dash in place of the factory speakers. Or you would surface/flush mount the tweeters in the doors or even in the a-pillars.
I am partial to Polk components, so I would look at the db series - the new db5251 set is 93db. Bostons sound good too, but they are normally a bit less efficient. You should go listen and see what you like.
