Kenwood Excelon KDC-X693. Even at Crutchfield it's less that 300 shipped. I got one for my GF and it's way more radio than she can handle. It's got good EQ options, TA, Crossovers, and USB/iPod control. It even charges all iPods, which most HUs don't do. It gives you the option to control the iPod with the HU or by hand as well. It's a great budget HU.

You can't go wrong with any of the Kenwood Excelon units. I have a Pioneer DEH-P980BT, and I love it (I grounded the **** out of it though before I installed it). I had an Excelon 600 series a couple of years ago, and it was a great deck. I'd still have that deck if I hadn't sold it to a friend!

Nice choice, I was looking at replacing my wife's radio with that one, but I figured it was still too much radio for her.

why get the x693 when you can have the x993 for under $300 shipped? aside from the glare in direct sunlight i absolutely love my x993. i got around that by just making the display a giant clock since that is all i need to know when i look at it. plays, controls and charges any ipod/phone/touch, built in bt (and supports streaming bt stereo), t/a, tons of eq settings and lots of other extras.

GreenBlunt is a sales rep or something for Eonon. He pushes that garbage to everyone looking for a head unit.

Don't you think E1012 is much better (http://www.eonon.com/cate.html?txtKey=1012&utm_source=caraudio&utm_medium=forum_z&utm_campaign=forum_z)~~
for you know, 1091 doesn't contain a antenna, of course ,you can buy one, that can cost you more.
E1012 is better...

Head units pre outs tend to clip at about 3/4 full volume. 22/24 is definitely past that and it should distort around there if not before that. If you're using the internal amp on the head unit, you should be distorting even sooner than that.

If you set everything correctly, you shouldn't have distortion with any head unit.

Why is eonon so cheap? and how come I never heard abou tthem? How are they compared to a Kenwood DDX unit?

vellocet
08-05-2009, 11:18 AM
I would NOT buy an eonon.I'd buy used (and I do) before I put some new junk in my car. The popular stuff around here tends to be alpine, pioneer, kenwood, and eclipse. I'm kind of nervous about the kenwood, but I know someone that only runs kenwood and has been using then longer than I knew about car audio.

Stay with a reputable brand and shop for the features you want. There is not an ideal hu out there anyways.

You might as well use a factory HU then. Get a new HU. Go with the X693 if that's what you want. It doesn't distort in my GF's car, but then again, she doesn't turn the music up loud with me in there because I don't let her. I hate the crap she listens to.
