    What would be a good cheap HU?????

    Hey what would be a good but cheap HU to get??? I was going to get the Sony CDX M800 but due to the cost of the rest of my system I need a little more cheaper HU. I would love to keep it under $150 but I would be willing to go up to $200 (off ebay). Would a cheaper Sony be good or maybe a really cheap Alpine??? I am a newbe and know nothing of HU so any advice would be appreceated...

    Thanks in advance...

    Jon

    I personally don't like sony but i've heard that their head units are fine. if you like them, i'm sure it will be fine.

    i really love the alpine hu's and some of the pioneer stuff.

    I would definitely ditch the Sony HU! I've had nothing but problems with 2 different units! Check out Alpine, or pick up a Pioneer Premier off of ebay. Premier only! Low end Pioneer is equivalent to Sony (in my opinion).

    Rear Fill: CDT CL-5X

    Sub: CDT HD1020 in sealed 1.0 cu. ft. enclosure (Q Logic, too lazy to build this time) :thumbsdow

    A few quick suggestions would be-alpine cda-9807 234 shipped,cda-9825 165 shipped,or maybe the 9827 for 208 shipped.but again thats just a fast run through on ebay....search alpine and maybe some of these models as they are all decent for the price.

    Yeah they all look good but I think I am leaning toward the Pioneer Premier DEH-P660. It looks like a good HU and I am loven the remote. Around $180-$200 sounds like a good price to. Thanks for the input.

    If anyone has any experience with it rather good or bad I would like to know..... Thanks
