    Can I use a single din head unit in my truck?

    I have a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche and have about $200 for a new head unit. But the problem is that my truck has a double din stereo and I want to know if I can use a single din, and if so how will it be installed to not look messed up. And if anyone has any recommendation on a good head unit I should buy for that price, please let me know. Thanks.

    Hell for like $250 you can get a good Pioneer Double Din. But as for decks around $200 that are single din, I would look into Kenwood or Alpine. eBay has some real good deals, and a lot of times, some companies like crutchfield.com, will include a dash kit with your purchase.



    Deck: Pioneer 80PRS
    Front Stage: Incriminator Audio I65C / Front Amp: Alpine MRV F540
    Sub: 2 10" Obsidian V3 / Sub Amp: MMATS 2000.1
    Bought From: ge_off_me, Boomsday, Chemmins, impactas, Sleazebagger, NoPh33rRaCiNg, fasfocus00, 50cents, flastrongman, pborcich, ace_800, GAMEOVERCCA
    Sold To: Jamesmington, Juicee, Bunkrd you, Donnie Darko, ge_off_me, destined2race, todd131, Imjtnotu, mclerico83, aimology, Audiobahn, kpetree
    Traded With: ge_off_me, Imtjnotu, 04lariat
