Hey Guys, I'm in the process of slowly but surely getting a system installed, i still have Factory Everything... hehe. I'm basically doing extensive searches and checking out reviews on things i need to get... i do got a REXXX 12" on the way, but so far thats all i decided on (plus i got it for 1/2 price), i'm still desiding on the amp, but my eyes are hurtin from doing soooo much reading, so i decided to look for a HU, and figured i would ask to see what you guys could come up with for what i'm looking for first then i wont have to do much reading on em as they should be slightly easyer than choosing the right amps and mids...hehe.
Basically, a HU that....
A. Has No internal amp
B. Has line outs, 1-3 would be kewl, 1 is good tho... (course it will if no amp..hehe)
C. Can Play MP3s on CD-R/RW etc...
D. Cam Play MP3s From DVD-R, but no video, since i dont plan on watching TV in the car either... just for storage purposes.
E. Has a Line Input for External MP3 Player, like Ipod... (FM Transmitters ****)
F. Has a Remote and support for a Steering wheel remote, so i dont have to keep reachin over at times.
G. Decent display i can see, especially at an angle, saw a few that dimmed if you were on an angle.
I guess thats about it.... somthing that does have an EQ will be nice and adjustable Bass/Treble/Mid... maybe Sub output adjustment if it has two line outs one for mid/high and sub.... although its not super important.
I'm looking for a decent brand, like pioneer, clarion, alpine etc...... about in the $200-400 range...
I was looking at the eclipse reviewed here and its quite nice, but too pricey, and still does have an internal amp, but way too many controls too... I'll probably just get an external Crossover and PEQ, or use the crossover on the amps for now if i run outta cash. At least this way the system is slightly more upgradable without worrying about other stuff they have or dont have.
Thanks for any recommendations
