View Full Version : Is it worth upgrading head units?

06-29-2011, 10:28 PM
Right now I have a Sony GT 250mp head unit and I am thinking of upgrading to a head unit with better features.
My price range is under 200$ and that is solid.

I was looking at a JVC Arsenal KD-AHD79 because it has some features that I would really desire ex. 6 channel rcs (5 volt), Single Din size (that is all I can fit), looks to be of good quality

I would desire at least 4 channel rcas, good hpf and lpf filters, decent eq, aux and usb input, and overall good features. I don't really like the way that alpine head units "feel" as far as using it goes but I am willing to consider them if the features are right. Any help is greatly appreciated :) sorry if I left some important details out

your plans for an Arsenal will be a night and day difference. even the eXcelon mentioned in your other thread would make a huge difference.

just installed my Eclipse cd7100 today I picked up for 180$ sounds way nicer.

I dont think that my amps would be able to handle the 8v preouts

i personally dont like jvc or sony as a HU. but to each his/her own. if you want 5 volt rca's then look into eclipse, kenwood or alpine

you could also look into pioneer deh-6000ub three rca's sub/front/rear (preout 4volt) 7band eq under $200
