I sold my car and left everything in it except my sub, box and amp. I have a big Brutus amp and an Infinity Kappa Perfect 12dvq in a cheap sealed box.
My factory radio is one of those 1.5 DIN ones and then there is a single DIN 4-disk changer farther down the console, that is now unusable.
Initially, I'm trying to pick a head unit because everything else will cascade off of that selection.
I have friends and family in the industry that say, only Pioneer. I'm open for opinions though.
I plan to use MP3s via CDs (or DVDs), USB sticks or most likely SD cards.
I have only Android phones.
The Pioneer DEH-80PRS is the most expensive head unit I will consider.
Initially, I will keep the factory speakers, but I want to add my sub in.
Pioneer really doesn't have a lower cost head unit that uses SD cards. Do they?
Do all those advanced features work if you aren't using discrete tweeters, mids and woofers? I'm talking about time alignment, three way network, etc?
Most non-audio advanced features are of no interest to me, except maybe phone integration.
With little kids at home, my car is the only place where I can listen to my music, my way.
First post, thanks!
