    Best Bang For The Buck?

    I'm in the market for a new head unit, and was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the best head unit for the money.

    Thanks

    I'm looking at spending no more than $300.

    I seen this pretty decent Panasonic for a little over 100 bucks. 3 4v pre-outs, front aux input, etc. Can't beat the price in my opinion.

    i was going to suggest a 590ib but that isn't a bad choice either^^^

    you could probably get an 880 prs for around what your willing to spend tho... Which is a b/a headunit for sure. My fav h/u i've ever used.

    What do you guys think about the Panasonic 5405u I posted above? I know it's rather cheap, but for the price it seems like a steal.

    Pretty much ya. Some high/lowpass crossovers and more of an EQ would be nice though. I'm gonna keep looking.

    Anyone have a head unit for under $300 they recommend?

    My Kenwood KDC X491 is decent. My brother has an X791 and I like that a lot better though.

    The front USB port is awesome. I rarely use any CDs and I never have to burn any.

    They both have front usb, crossovers (front, rear and sub) and an adjustable EQ.

    Re: Best Bang For The Buck?

    are the slopes on the x791 and x491 fully variable?

    My x591 has crossovers, but they are limited to 60-250Hz

    i got a Pioneer 6000ub the other day and its great

    It will do ipod(which is built in no extra cost) usb jump drives/harddrives.
    XM/Sirus, blue tooth, mp3/wma

    has a 7 band eq

    and the backgrounds are decent.

    I paid 260 a month ago at Best Buy.

    Probably one of the better decks ive used

    has high pass crossver at 50/63/80/120/160
    low pass is the same but no 160
