I have the following stereo. Volkswagen Golf 2002.

Can I take out both the single dins and replace with a double-din?

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! I don't know for sure, but I believe 2x1din equates to 2din size. The width is standard. I'm pretty sure the height is a standard size as well. Not positive, so leaving this as a comment. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Nov 24 '17 at 21:57
  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 per this article you're correct. Add as answer! :) – kyle_engineer Nov 24 '17 at 23:37

According to this article, a DIN is an opening which is 2" tall by 8" wide. A double DIN is 4" tall by 8" wide, so is twice the height of the single DIN. Makes sense :o)

NOTE: Thanks goes to @kyle_engineer for the assist!
