Looking for some input on either of these 2 headunits, or even another suggestion for a double din dvd playback hu. Anybody have any experience with either of these 2? Thanks in advance.

I've got a 6019 in the truck, and a w205 in the car. If you are planning on nav, or not using an external processor, then the kenwood is the way to go. The kna nav add on plugs in, is simple to use, looks good, and works great. If you plan on getting serious with sound, the add on sound processor of the alpine blows away just about anything else, but is not for everyone!!

I wont say my plans are serious sound, as in competition or anything, I just want good, clean sound and features like the iPod controls, etc. I like the fact I have a double din to use and want to take advantage of that space well. Thanks for the thoughts guys.

Got the DDX8019. Lots of add ons, the navigation seems simple enough, plus it does DVD Audio. Also has outputs to trigger relays directly in the deck (like a switch in the dash for like neon, but built in the car).
