Is there a way to install a single din radio in the pocket below the center stack of a 2010 bose equipped pathfinder?

I am talking about the pocket below the hvac controls and above the heated seat controls in this image:

There may or may not be a way to install a single DIN in that slot, but I’m curious about your reason for wanting such. If the reason is to improve the sound quality without having to do a custom install because of the complicated Bose system, then you might consider a sound processor. If I understand correctly, those are what is needed to get rid of all the additional timing and equalizer tweaks done by the factory radio for the factory speakers. If you intend to add an amplifier, or even higher quality speakers you’ll need one of those to get a clean signal to send to your amp. Crutchfield has an article on them and several in stock.

The reason I wanted to go with a single DIN unit was to be able to play MP3s directly from a USB, add bluetooth, and stiill retain the factory screen with the HVAC camera and reverse camera. I wanted to be able to have pre-amp outputs to connect a 4 channel amp and subwoofer amp.

However now that I am thinking of it, the factory bose unit is fine for mids/highs. I may go with a line level output to send a signal to a subwoofer amp, and I may just add a bluetooth aux adapter. This may end up being the cheapest / simplest way to get some loud music with my mp3 collection in the pathfinder.
