    Which one is better

    Hey guys, can you all give me an advise, which one is the better head units. I got a pair of MB Quart DSD 216 splits and A pair of jl audio w3d4 subs. I got the amps to power up all the speakers and I am in the stage of choosing a head unit.

    I have two in minds. it is a

    1. JVC KDLX300
    General Specifications:
    RMS Power Output: 18x4 Watts
    RMS: Root Mean Square is a formula that provides a reasonably accurate means of measuring and comparing continuous AC power. The use of this measure is preferred when matching system components, like amplifiers and receivers.
    Subwoofer Preamp Outputs: Yes
    Preamp Output: Typically found on headunits, a preamp output provides low level, high quality audio signal for use with external amplifiers.
    Maximum Power: 50x4 Watts
    Maximum Power: The amount of power a speaker is estimated to handle during a brief high-intensity musical burst. Since this can vary with both frequency and amplitude, it is a much less accurate way to judge speaker durability and performance than RMS.
