    Re: What brand should i look into for a new head unit??

    my JVC has been solid as a rock. i bought it used 3-4 years ago and it has never gave me any problems. pioneers are good too, if you look past the pico fuse issue.

    Re: What brand should i look into for a new head unit??

    Personally id only go Eclipse or Apline. I did have a panasonic DD dvd unit that was decent. only others id consider would be pioneer or kenwood excelon series. Some like JVC.

    ALso would help to know what you all want to get out of it. Subs down the line, interiors or do you just want it for features, etc



    Headunit - Kenwood DDX 318 4v double din
    Front Stage - JL Audio c2 6.5 comp set
    Rear Stage - Jl Audio VR 6" comp set
    Front stage amp - OS Sony (.005 THD Rated)
    Sub Stage - 2 10" IDs 1cu sealed per
    Sub Stage Amp - Boston Acoustic GT-28
    Big 3, SVR800 Batt, JL Blue Line Rca's, 0 ga JL kit
    Refs - The_Grimy_One, Deusle, zach90z, shineman08, Orion 2500D

    Big Money = Pioneer Avic series
    Low Money = Clarion

    Depends on how many Bells and Whistles you are looking for.

    Re: What brand should i look into for a new head unit??

    my JVC is a single din flip out. my buddy has a same-era pioneer flip out and his motor function for the flip out doesn't work. i don't know how relevant that is, just wanted to point that out. otherwise both work flawlessly.

    I had a JVC sterio amplifier and speakers that are 30 years old and still rocking but the head unit that I got off of Crutchfeild didnt have a good user interface, other than that JVC lasts forever.

    I am currently running a pioneer and it works great, but for some reason i find myself missing my old JVC headunit. Solid units that never give any problems.

    I've had pioneers and alpines for the last 12 years. Pretty much ever since i was able to drive. Minus a Clarion and 2 kenwoods back in h.s.

    Re: What brand should i look into for a new head unit??

    alpines IMO = good, but pricey
    kenwoods = only excelon series
    eclipse = great overall units.
    pioneers = prefer only their higher end.
    i myself own a Pioneer MVH p8200. its a single din lcd. i like it, but theres things i wish it had that my kenwood had.
    ive never ran JVC.
    these are just my opinions of course.
