Re: Is my 1999 Caddy sts double din

Is a size standard for car stereos, single DIN and double DIN. Double DIN is twice the size of a single DIN but are slightly shallower. There is also a 1.5 DIN. The size of a DIN is 7” width by 2” height (4" x 7" for double DIN).
This is what you will call single DIN
And this is what you will call double DIN
Our cars are Double DIN

I thought it was some technological term. You mean it is a dimension and they are standardized? Why?

Regular radios are single din and the big one pictured in twice as big ,hence the double din..you can put either in your car but double din will look better..

On your factory plug use a test lite to find the wire thats hot with key on and in acc that will connect to the yellow wire on aftermarket radio and the one thas hot all the time (on the factory plug ) will be red on the aftermarket radio,,

This mostly help the aftermarket stereos industry…frankly I have no idea why me as a car manufacturer will adhere to a standard that does nothing for me, just helps somebody else to sell his products. Must be some reason in miss...
