i have an opportunity to pick up a KNS-80 to add to my panel. Here's my panel, the ADF is INOP and I have seen people stick the KX170 in where the ADF currently is. Im thinking about picking up the KNS-80 and puttin g it where the KX170 is then removing the ADF and putting the KX170 there. Is the KNS-80 expensive to install is it worth adding to my dated panel?
