    As far as I know, no. GM uses a strange size. There are, however, head units made specifically for Chrysler and GM sized openings. Pioneer I believe makes a couple.

    Yeah pioneer makes a good (new)8 year old reciever with no new technology in it at all, no MP3, xm, or anything. No one makes a new din and a half with new technology. Ive looked all over, it aint here.

    Umm yea it will fit. It is not a strange size, GM does use strange sizes in Chevys and Pontiacts but Cadillac. If your having trouble finding a dash kit, your local stereo shop can make one for like $40.

    I'm in the process of getting a double din in my 99 seville, I'll post pics when I finally finish, I'm waiting for the new Pioneer Z-1 double din unit to come out so I can finally do it, but I'm pretty confident that I'll get it in there...

    When I had my radio out, I measured it. It was 3 inches tall, which is 1-1/2 DIN. The Cadillacs DO have a strange size, and double DINs will not fit! Atleast not in my '97 Eldorado.

    Its spelled duct tape btw and no thats not whats holding it in there. I made a custom bracket out of 1/2' and 1/4' MDF so it uses the factory hardware. The back of the unit is secured up by a plastic dowel as the factory unit was. I ditched the silver trim ring and used the factory black ring which worked well. If your gonna act like a dick next time how about you phrase things so there more understandable.

    Why can't you use an adapter kit and a single?

    What the hell are your guys's problems?? Theres an install with absolutly no info and im asking how, and i have asked how many times with answers of "it will fit" Ya thanks i can see that it will fit....you are the *******....

    The things i said above was only to probe to get the right answer, guess what, it worked!!! You are just misreading stuff....ass....

    I was under the assumption that u used a double din install kit since you gave no info...

    And there IS duck tape go to the store and find it, quit trying to be a spelling teacher, the brand is called DUCK and its stated on the tape...... so there....and it is one of the best duct tapes out there....Im a contractor i know what a duct is...
