Ok everyone. I havent got a clue what HU to get for my Blazer. I think its a double din.

Things that I want in my head unit...

Equalizer would be great
MP3...and Lossless format support if its available
USB for my 500 gig portable hard drive
No need for phone or bluetooth or NAV support
Recordable DVD support for MP3 would be great
For my music preference I like metal like Black Sabbath, Dio...of course, Halen, Metallica sometimes, Zeppelin....you get the point..70s 80s 90s rock and its almost always cranked when I'm by myself..

I would like to spend under 300 if possible.

Please help me find the right one. Ive looked but nothing beats a current or former owner for their input as to what to buy.


Thanks everyone

Any opinions about double din decks? I saw the poll in another thread and it looks like alpine vs Pioneer.

a double din will not fit directly into a blazer, that is going to require modification to install it properly...

Really...I see that it says with modification....but I did not know exactly what needs modified. I figured that the installes would be able to figure it out. Mabey I had better buy local instead of online so the installer can make sure it fits. Thanks for the heads up as I was going to get it at sonic.


My budget is 300 for the head unit and thanks for stopping by the thread and helping me.

NP good luck to you, also... Any good competent professional installer should be able to set you up, it's just not a a basic install where you can just simply buy a cheapo average mounting kit & slap it in there as almost every kit I've seen for those is a single din setup...

ahh ok yes the RDS gm radios are dbl din, I di not think that was the factory unit you had in yours... But I JUST did an 02' that was 1.5 & i THOUGHT they would be the same d@mn thing LOL... You should have no prob fitting a double din then if that is your stock HU currently ;)

Ha...it seems that sonic is listing the p660 jbl as not fitting my vehicle 2003 ls 4 door blazer. Can anyone confirm if this will or will not fit? They already shipped.
