write down all the features you want.
check those 2 pages i listed and find the one that matches your preferences

not that many choices with your budget and features you want, so shouldnt take long to do some research

thanks man, but i was asking for some advice on H/U's and the forums suggestions as to which models they think are good, not where to buy them....should have made that more clear

pioneer DEH-P610BT is on my mind right now, anyone use this deck?

05-26-2010, 07:02 PM
didnt you say 5V preouts?
pioneer you mentioned doesnt have 5v

like the other guy said.
find 3-4 models that you think fit the profile and post them here

because when we suggest something you might not like how it looks or its missing a feature or two.

make your life easier and browse thru the pages i gave you and paste few units that you found ...

ive been threw sonic already, in fact Ive been looking for around for a day or to now but couldn't find anything with 5v outs, hence why I started a thread here.....the pioneer was the only deck I found that I would consider buying because ive only bought there decks before, but I dont really know who else is making good decks these days, which is why i made this thread. lol you could send me links to internet sites all day long and I could look around all day long and still have NO hands on experience with anything but pioneer. And to be honest I dont want another pioneer deck.

if someone made a thread "help me pick my new sub". I certainly would NOT send them to sonic and make them waste their time going threw boss and pyle, Id suggest a decent sub like DC and tell them why.

there is a lot of knowledge on this forum, and to "make my life easier " I have no problem asking for a little input.

good day

the reason i sent you is because they have a power search where you can narrow down your search by alot.

because you still havent told us what other features you lookign for.
usb?(front or back), ipod capable, wav playback, multicolor display, eq, crossover, time allignment, hd radio, single din or double din...

your request is equivalent to someone asking:
"i want to buy a car that has 4 wheels, 6 cylinder engine, sunroof, power steering, radio"

the alpine 9835 in the classifieds

05-26-2010, 08:50 PM
so after using power search heres what i got

All Car Stereos | Car Stereos and Head Units | Car Audio | Car Audio, Video & GPS at Sonic Electronix (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/viewcat.php?category_id=11&power_search_id=38716)

9835 has 2 volt preouts

05-26-2010, 08:51 PM
bud, I told you the features that are IMPORTANT to me 5v. 3 outs, Blue tooth, usb......

pretty sure this is the one though Pioneer DEH-P7100BT dont think ill have any luck finding 5v in my price range, 4v should do fine

05-26-2010, 08:53 PM
4 volt
