    Best head units for under 300.00

    Looking to upgrade from my Alpine 9813. I dont know much about head units. All i know is that Alpine is not bad. Any other brands as good or better that look nice. Has to have good eq features too.

    I dont know if it matters but im trying to run 3 amps, 4 - 6 speakers & an ipod.

    when they say "ipod ready" do they mean that you dont need to buy an expensive adaptor?

    Wow thats cool. The ipod adaptor for my alpine is like 100.00 by itself

    Also, are these good sound quality hu's?? When i changed from a sony to an alpine, the sound quality was noticeably better. I just dont want to take a step backwards.

    Also, i dont see "subwoofer output" and "USB Interface" as one of the features even tho the lower model kenwood has it.
