Trying to figure out which double din head unit is the best for under $400. I'd like to stay with pioneer or Kenwood, but others can be considered

Please help guys

you can buy my pioneer, or kenwood lol. Or my alpine. Before anyone can recommend anything, we would probably need to know what features you are looking for, preouts requirement, preouts voltage, etc.

It's for a friends 2000 gmc. He doesn't use or have any amps for speakers but has a little amp for is mtx 8's in te back. Nothing major. Something that will make his speakers sound good. Lol that's what he says.

For 400 most of the units will be better than stock, so his options are unlimited. He can drop his prices down n still get a decent unit as long as he's not worried about all the options

If he doesn't mind buying used look at Pioneer 3200dvd, 3200bt, 4200dvd, 4300dvd ect....4v outs, 8 band eq and much more for very reasonable prices. 3200's go for $150-225. 4200/4300's for $200-275.

correct, and also the 4400 has a very cheap display with pixelated words. i would never own any double din multimedia unit unless its pioneer

I just bought a AVH-X5500 on Amazon for $350 brand new. The guy has 2 left in stock. Great deal, I'll take my chances on Pioneer's warranty for that price.

I also picked up the parking brake bypass on Amazon for $24 too.

For those that said they have the X5500:

Do you guys have Iphone or Android. If you have Android could you offer up some comments on how well it works and what features you have/like with the android. I am stuck between the Kenwood DDX790 and the X5500 and looking for anybody that can sway me in one direction over the other.

Not trying to thread jack but do these double dins come with a plug and play harness for the stock car harness? Im not trying to cut or splice/soder wires.

You'll always have to buy a harness adapter to not cut the factory harness.

I could personally only recommend you go JVC. To me they have the best units for the money. All my previous pioneers have given me some sort of problem. With Kenwood, the more you spend, the better it gets (Double din wise). I just brought a JVC indash and its been the best purchase I've made lately. Actually, the last great pioneer deck I had still had the words premier on it

Oh, you said stay with? My bad. But I stick with what I said
