Hey guys, i'm back from a long hiatus. Back again looking to replace my stock 94 Accord Wagon EX headunit bc I'd like to add a Dayton HO or similar SQ subwoofer to my speakers. This is my daily driver and I don't care if anyone else hears me outside the car and I usually don't listen to music real loud anyways...just want to fill in the lows in rock/rap/etc. Obviously I'd like to replace the headunit instead of using a LOC with the stock radio bc I;ve heard SQ suffers.

So these are my requirements:
-Look good(I haven't looked at HUs since 2008. Loved the Alpines back then)
-Have an aux in for my phone
-cheaper is better as I believe anything will be an upgrade and power the puny stock speakers just fine
-good pre outs for amps

Cheaper is better. Just want something with good Pre-Outs for amps and aux in so I can hookup Pandora through my android phone

Then you'll want either a newer version pioneer or kenwood deck prolly $200 at least. But I can help

Get one with bluetooth, it's way more convenient than an aux cable IMO. Not to mention a decent HU should be able to display song/artist info when streaming pandora.

Have an apline 9827, it doesn't have an aux but has everything else you need

Really don't like bluetooth to be honest. Would much rather just plug in a cord

Ended up going with a Kenwood X597. Had all the features I wanted plus some. Bluetooth, 4v pre-outs, variable colors, 22x4 RMS, 2yr warranty, etc
