    Cheapest Head Unit that will get the job done?

    I am looking for a halfway decent head unit.. I have a 96' Jimmy.... Will any headunit fit in any car or do I have to measure it out ? I just want a headunit that can play CDs, and has a bass knob or something to control the bass !!

    Thanks!

    whats cheap? And in an 96, depth will be an issue, the vents are right behind the radio.. You will need an install kit unless you get creative.

    well you are from rockford, and the only other person i knew from rockford was a *******, so i will cut you some slack, must be your upbringing. Maybe you should look around the forums a little more before you post. You could also stop by your local circuit city or best buy and ask any of them this question and since they are getting paid to answer you and hoping for sales they will probably stifle their laughter and answer your question explaining the following variables to you.

    What are you trying to control the bass on? Do you have subs in your vehicle yet? If so you need a deck with gain control for the subwoofer outputs or use the rear outputs and fade to the front or rear for gain control not using your rear speakers.

    honestly you just come off as a dumb suburb ******.

    I wouldn't be concerned with others grammar until you are proficient with it, personally.
