I'm planning on installing a FT-7900 in my car. It's already ordered & should be here in about a week. From my previous experience installing various car audio systems I know that I do by best & cleanest work by planning out everything in advance, even if it is only in my head.
I'm considering a couple different mounting locations for the actual transceiver body (using the separation kit) and my current 1st choice is in an oddly shaped spot, thanks to all the curves they put into modern vehicles. Looking at the manual for the 7900, I noted the case size & made a mock-up from cardboard. Now I assume since the manual is only for the FT-7900 & there is a separate installation/information guide for the YSK-7800 separation kit that the listed measurements would be from having the face attached.
Could anyone that owns a FT-7900 take a quick measurement of the depth of the body sans face? I would really appreciate it.
Note that I'm not trying to cram this into a tight spot where the airflow/temperature would be a problem, it's just dealing with the potential of the vehicle's curvature causing a problem with a corner or perhaps the angle the radio would centrally pivot on the bracket.
