Hey guys,

I'm planning to buy an after market HU to replace the existing stock HU.
What do you think about the JVC AVX44?
Will this fit good in my 98 slk230?
And do you know if any special adaptation is necessary or should this be a simple replacement?
Thanks for your help.

One small point to think about, the slk has a flat dash, so the HU stands proud.

If the HU has a square edge it sticks out, If you chose one with a beveled edge it blends in better.

Its down to your taste m8, Everone has a diff idea of there fav make or sound, Go and have a looky at a few in a shop, see how they sound.

I have an Alpine But many other makes have the beveled edge.

Many will not care it sticks out, But it would bug the shit out of me.

Also I dont know if you own a ipod, But think about a HU with Ipod control, Just plug it in and your good to go.

Do you have rear subs behind the seats in yours ?

Hey Albertolds,

I put a new Blaupunkt HU in my SLK a couple months ago and it's great. I posted a pic of it on another forum ( SLK World Forum ) and here's a link to it at Crutchfield so you can see more information about it ( Blaupunkt Hamburg MP57 CD receiver at Crutchfield.com )

Was a perfect fit without having to modify anything. Hope this helps.

Mike
