    Looking for a fathers day gift.

    hey guys. so i am looking to get my dad a new head unit for fathers day. right now he has some old, broken head unit that cant play CD's anymore.

    so i was thinking of getting him one with ipod compatibility but i dont want to spend much more than 150. i have no problem ordering from ebay or even if you guys are getting rid of one. I would like it to be atleast 22rms if possible.

    thanks for the help guys!
    -Kyle

    You can snag a new pioneer or alpine unit for less than that. I put a pioneer w/ ipod compatability (just like a headphone type jack thing) for $120 from best buy. Im sure it could be had cheaper online, but i wanted a warranty for her dumb@ss, and i only had like 2 days to do a full install before leaving.

    get a used JVC HU and an ipod adapter (like $30). Shouldnt be more than 120 and you might even find an HU with USB input. I've had JVC hu's for the last 3 years and none have let me down and sell cheap because people are still stuck on pioneer/alpine

    yeah, i know that my brother drives the car too, and he has an old cowon iaudio mp3 player with a battery life of 13seconds. so i was thinking that a USB port would be great for both the ipod control and the iaudio (to keep it charged)

    Re: Looking for a fathers day gift.

    why does it need to be 22 watt rms? You might find a Clarion that would be decent. Frys in Downer's Grove should have something there

    You could go to the flea Market on Division and Kostner. THey are open Saturday and Sunday. You should really find a decent HU there.
