View Full Version : Replacing stock headunit

08-26-2007, 04:36 AM

I'm looking for a replacement for a stock head unit.

I'd like to spend $150 or so at most.

I need some type of iPod compatibility, preferably an iPod cable (so it charges.. my cigarette lighter does not work), although simply an Aux in would be OK too.

There are many choices out there. Kenwood, Pioneer, Alpine, etc.

First on my list is sound quality. Power isn't too important, as long as it's not lacking in that department.

What are you're recommendations? Currently I'm looking at the $150 Alpine model, and a couple of Pioneers, however Kenwoods seem to be quite popular as well..

ipod control goes to alpine hands down, pioneer is not bad either and the rest just pretty much ****

Lot's of choices out there. you say SQ, but do you plan on adding a system later? Do you need MP3 playback? Double or single din? Parametric EQ's?
