View Full Version : Can I use a single din head unit in my truck?

06-21-2011, 11:49 PM
I have a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche and have about $200 for a new head unit. But the problem is that my truck has a double din stereo and I want to know if I can use a single din, and if so how will it be installed to not look messed up. And if anyone has any recommendation on a good head unit I should buy for that price, please let me know. Thanks.

Hell for like $250 you can get a good Pioneer Double Din. But as for decks around $200 that are single din, I would look into Kenwood or Alpine. eBay has some real good deals, and a lot of times, some companies like crutchfield.com, will include a dash kit with your purchase.

Dash kits compensate for a single din headunit.
