View Full Version : Double DIN Head Unit

08-28-2013, 03:16 PM
Hey everyone,

I am looking for some opinions on a head unit that will work with what I already have.

I am getting ready to upgrade my speaker system in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler that was from my old car. I will be putting in:

6.5 Alpine SPS-610 Component Speakers in dash
6.5 Alpine SPS-610 Coaxials in sound bar
10" Alpine Type R Sub
MRP-F300 4-Channel Amp
MRP-M500 Mono Amp

In my old car I had a Single DIN Pioneer DEH-P5100UB Head Unit. The newer Jeeps have a double DIN Head Unit in them. I know I can get away with keeping the DEH-P5100 with a Metra install bracket but to make it look nice I'd really like to get a double DIN HU.

Would you guys mind giving me suggestions for a double DIN HU that will work with the current speakers, sub, and amps I have? I am not looking to break the bank... trying to keep costs around $500.

I really like simple and clean, and like the looks of the full screen units like the pioneer appradio's. The most important thing is that I can play my ipod music or iPhone. I am just really clueless when it comes to the compatibility of this stuff!

I appreciate the help guys.

Why not just stick with Pioneer and grab the AVH-x5500BHS it retails right around the $500 mark you can find it on amazon for under $350
