View Full Version : I would like a nice head unit for my ride. Where should I start?

I drive an 04 GT Mustang with a system. I would like a head unit that is nice and has good quality.

I do want red, because I have a red neon that hits with the bass, and red calipers.

I was looking at a Pioneer one, but I'm not sure which is the best for a decent price.

And also could you tell me how much this will cost me?

Installation and everything.

Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

What kind of features are you looking for? How many amps do you plan on hooking up? Do you need a good built in eq or are you running an external one? Do you want a screen, navigation etc? What is your price range?

I'd like enough features to look good.

Other than that:

1 amp

No screen or nav. system

Price Range 150-300

and a good Equalizer would be great.

Sorry I forgot to mention the above and thanks again

pioneer 5800, red light, good sound and controls etc. for the price.

Kenwood excelon series, great headunits with optional red backlights

yeah anything in the pioneer and/or premier series 5xxx and up should suite you well. u may not like the 6series tho bc its blue

Eclipse CD3000 would be good for you

pioneer 5800, red light, good sound and controls etc. for the price.

Or the 580, which I found for $157 SHIPPED from an AUTHORIZED dealer.

Either one is a good buy, but the 580 has a better warranty and I found it for less than the 5800.
