I currently have an Alpine 9815 HU which I love for its sound quality and signature but I feel like upgrading to a double din HU with touch screen capability, GPS, DVD, and possibly harddrive (I use a samsung mp3 player so ipod not important but would be nice for passengers).

I don't want to lose the Alpine sound quality and signature from the 9815 but I haven't really heard that many headunits as well so I'm open to suggestions for even better sound quality if there is.

What would be some suggestions for $800 or under, including refurbished or used...? If you feel like theres something just outside of $800 please let me know.

For that price it will be tough. Try finding a used Kenwood 8120.

Wow I didn't know they were that expensive. I saw people talking about Pioneer D3's for like $500 range. What if I pushed it up to $1000 for my budget?

DNX8120. Or DDX812 if you dont need nav.

What about the Pioneer D3/Z3's and the Alpine units? I'm surprised nobody suggested Alpine since I love my 9815 currently.

yeah but he wasnt nav though. pretty tough to get alpine with nav for under 2 g's.


I love my AVN 5435 (eclipse)

Grab an alpine w-200/205 the h701 processor and a portable nav. You can get them all for about $1000 and have all the processing you need along with your gps.

Thats probably the best option, I think double dins are not well known for their SQ. Buying the H701 to go with the W200/205 will give you a great combo.

Ive got the Kenwood DNX-7100, it has the garmin navigation which is really nice for updating the maps and etc, really easy to use. I got mine for 600$ used about 6 months ago.

That's a tall order for under $800. Eclipse could be an option, but you won't find any refurbished, really.

Kenwood 8019's are on the net for $550 refurbished. To get the nav unit it'd cost another $275 if it's a good deal. That would be your closest to $800.

That is a good deal for a headunit that retails for 1500.

If you want to go active with a ton of processing I'd go with my suggestion.
