    Icon32 How much do I really need to spend?...

    To get a "good" HU? I've always stuck with pioneer, but am open to other suggestions. Been trying to do some "research", but from the looks of it, all the <$200 are pretty much the same, with only differences being usb/BT/preamp etc. Besides the ins and outs, what should I look for? Really all I think I'll need is 2 outs, and usb. Is spending more than $200 on a single din worth anything?

    Pioneer DEH-80PRS
    JBL MS-62C
    Kicker CX300.4 (Temporary)
    Subs TBD (IAD 10" or 12" possibly)
    Eclipse XA1000 (Till I need/want more power)

    Sold to: ctmaudi, Trancer, Germ305, RAM_Designs, lrc131
    Bought from: gentlejax, 2lows10, eL_wEEnIe, --Navi--, wu501, trumpet

    I would look for a headunit that will allow you to run active, have time-alignment, a decent eq, and high volt pre-outs or any one of each depending on how uch you will actually benefit from the feature. $200 would get you a decent used one around here.

    Don't see myself running active anytime in the near future, but i guess I could always be ready for it. Only things I think I'd concerned with out of those would be eq, and possibly voltage. Any suggestions? I was looking at the pioneer DEH-P8300UB and the JVC KD-R810

    You can find an older Eclipse. Ive seen the CD7000s go for somewhere in the $200 ballpark and they are great SQ units.

    You can look at the JVC KD-AR8500 here as well:
