I am looking for a halfway decent head unit.. I have a 96' Jimmy.... Will any headunit fit in any car or do I have to measure it out ? I just want a headunit that can play CDs, and has a bass knob or something to control the bass !!

Thanks!

whats cheap? And in an 96, depth will be an issue, the vents are right behind the radio.. You will need an install kit unless you get creative.

well you are from rockford, and the only other person i knew from rockford was a *******, so i will cut you some slack, must be your upbringing. Maybe you should look around the forums a little more before you post. You could also stop by your local circuit city or best buy and ask any of them this question and since they are getting paid to answer you and hoping for sales they will probably stifle their laughter and answer your question explaining the following variables to you.

What are you trying to control the bass on? Do you have subs in your vehicle yet? If so you need a deck with gain control for the subwoofer outputs or use the rear outputs and fade to the front or rear for gain control not using your rear speakers.

honestly you just come off as a dumb suburb ******.

hmhmh Lmao, Nice post yourmomisfat. Anyway, I need a head unit that can handle subs... Also this isnt about head units but.. When you wire the subs.. What do you wire the wires through to the back of the car?? Or how do the wires get to the back of the car to hook up to the subs and amp?

I wouldn't be concerned with others grammar until you are proficient with it, personally.

Oh, and GTFO and DIAF. KTHX

Let me re-write this travesty for you...

"OK, never mind; Maybe you guys are right.

You are obviously foreign, and I apologize. What is your primary language? Perhaps someone can help you, in all seriousness."

FAIL.

Ohh and to be nice an answer your questions. You need to buy an amp wiring kit, (walmart) and you run the wires from the back of the cd player to an amp. then after connecting the ground, power, and 12v, you run wires from your subs into the amp.

Before you can do that tho you have to have all the wires that were connected to your factory stereo connected to your new one. Not that hard to do, basically just follow instructions and match the colors.
