Has anyone ever installed an aux input into their car stereo?
I have a 2007 Toyota Matrix which I love except that the stereo is stuck in the 1990's. It has a single CD player that will not play mp3 CDs and no aux input. Since FM tuners don't work well in the DFW metroplex, I've decided to install an aux input. I did some research, confirmed that my stereo has the ability to easily accept an aux input, bought the parts I need and understand just about everything about the install with one exception. Where do I put the box that takes the input and gets it into the stereo? It's got to be somewhere near the back of the stereo, as the cord from the box to the stereo isn't that long. But I realized that every installation video I've watched does not show a good place to mount the box. Do I just pick a spot and screw the box into something that looks like it won't be terribly damaged by accepting a couple of screws? What should I look for when selecting that location? Are there any standard locations? Anywhere I should definitely avoid?
