Alright fellas, I recently got my new setup all installed in my 04' explorer:
18" sundown zv4 d2
sundown 3000d
2 sets of Image Dynamic components
270 mechman H.0.
OFC zero gauge
big 3
(2)deka 9a31's
Knu krystal rcas

Currently i have a kenwood DX419 double din, BUT im looking to replace it with another double din with more tuning capabilites etc. Mite i add that the DX419 has been a good unit for me for the last year and has gave me zero issues, just looking to upgrade is all.

My budget is $400-500 give or take a little.
I need the unit to have the following:

-3 sets of RCAS (front rear sub)
-atleast 4v preout
-good equalizer
-LPF/HPF filters
-play cds/dvds

Things listed below I don't care about: (if they have it then its a plus)
-reverse camera

Main thing i want my next double din to have is atleast 4v preout, 3 sets, and good tuning capabilites. Thanks in advance

sony xav701hd has 5v pre outs, will also do mirror link, i think most new pioneer has 4v output avh x4600bt also will do mirrorlink

@mylows10 did you mean the avh-x5500bhs? The deh-x5500bt is a single din headunit

Still hunting, havent pulled the trigger on anything yet..

Let me know what you guys have had good luck with and what you havent, I know theres a bazillion options out there but hopefully with my "needs" listed above it shall help narrow it down.

I have the xav701 and its great. but for the money I would look into the pioneer stuff cuz you get more for less.

I just recently put a PIONEER AVH-X3600BHS in my 4runner.
I have had it in 1400 miles and have played the heck out of it. VERY HAPPY......
It has 3 pre-outs at 2volts......HD radio and usb and aux
It also plays cd or dvd movies
I am pleased with the SQ and speaker output at just 22 watts.....$379.00
