I've got to replace the head unit in my van. NO power amps, etc. in this vehicle. I want the ability to play mp3's and then basically have as much clean power as possible.

Any recommendations?

Nice screen, great mp3 compatibility, makes stock speakers get nice and loud with little distortion. Had one for a while. Also, 6800 (i think) i had it to. Another great pioneer.

nice

I miss my old flip out 879 :bawling:

I just loved how I never needed to pull the face if I was going to be away from the car for a short while. Now with my p800prs, I get jittery when I get groceries lol.

So your want to use the HU's internal amp instead of an external amp?
you might want to check out JVC Arsenal KD-SHX850 (http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JVC-Arsenal-KD-SHX850-Car-CD-MP3-WMA-Player-SD-Card_W0QQitemZ230301581112QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item 230301581112&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C 240%3A1308&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14), it's got 35Wrms and 2 way + sub active crossover. it also comes with an external DC/DC converter to keep constant power to the HU. it should be decent for the money, i got one a few days ago but i haven't installed it yet.

Yes, I want to use deck power. This is a 2006 chrsyler town and country. I'd love to add an amp to it...but dont know where i'd put it.... I dont want to take up space that I need for everyday use.

lol @ the thought of "dirty power".

I think of a fart, personally.
