I was hoping you needed some real knowledge about VW's. Sure ya can wire what ever you like in it. You should also think about looking into a battery charger that charges extra batteries while your driving. Then when you are camping out you have extra juice to run other amenaties. I will talk to my boy abot it to get more details.

I think what your bro means is that it won't fit in place of the current tape deck. BUT... It will, you need to take a saw to the dash though. Check and make sure there's enough depth first! You may need to relocate it.

Electrically, there's no reason it it can't be installed.

Tripmeister is right...you will have to cut the dash. You might even consider new speakers in the front doors. Because your bus is a 71 and therefore not a split widow, you probably won't be sacrificing too much of its value. If you do want to keep it in mint condition, however, you can fashion a little bracket on the dash to hold the head unit and avoid cutting into the dash that way.

if you want to cut up the interior a bit to make it fit, it will work fine.

All you need for a car audio setup is 12 volt power, and a ground to the chassis.

I remember a friends old VW had 6volt electricity, but that was really old. I seem to remember he had it converted to 12volt, just so he could have some sounds in there :laugh:

If its 6 volt, that makes it a lot more complicated.

You can just buy a car battery (12 volt) and run it on that, but you need some way of charging it so I imagine an alternator would need to be put in.. or some sort of charging system.
