    what are some good head units to go active with?

    hey guys, I'm building a new stereo system for my new truck and i'm thinking about going active with my front stage because i have a five channel amp(rockford fosgate power 1000) that will put out plenty of power to do it but my main concern is the HU allowing me to do it. I don't have a clue what to look for on the spec sheets to know which will allow you to and which ones won't so i'm hoping to get some input from you out there that are running your front stage active and also i have to have a USB input and i would prefer it not be an alpine, nothing against the company just don't like there HU. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    the 800prs is a pretty sweet looking unit but it doesn't have a usb input, it requires an adapter. any others?

    what do i need to look for on the spec sheets to know whether it will do active or not? I know it's probably a dumb question but i'm new at active front stages.

    Eclipse CD7200 mk II, Alpine 9887, Pioneer DEH P800PRS

    Those are the big three that come to mind at a relatively low cost.
