    Cant decide on a head unit

    I have been looking for head units since that is my next thing to install in my car and i just cant seem to deicde one one. I have been looking at alpine, kenwood, and pioneer. I just want some reviews on a good headunit with lots of controls for sound that is a single din. i would like to spend no more then 250 on it also.

    Sold to- Mast240,
