    Which one to get?!?!?!

    Spending 200 on a HU from crutchfield to put in a nissan xterra. DO NOT TRY TO SELL ME A HU. i want it from crutchfield for the free install gear. I have it narrowed down to these 4 units. Leaning towards the clarion as i hear it has great eq options for its price. Which is what i want. i dont give a **** about "hd radio (that sounds no dif than normal radio) bluetooth, pandora control, and all that garbage. I just want a head unit with lots of eq options, good pre amp outputs, and sound quality. Also must have variable color display (i like to make it match the other lights in the car). Heres what i have narrowed it down too. Im leaving the final decision up to you guys. Which one should i purchase?

    If you want the option to run a 3-way active system the CZ702 is the only choice. The Alpine has the best EQ out of those 4. The color changing option is frivolous compared to everything else you asked for.

    I'm biased to Clarion, so I'm going to say get the Clarion, but I also speak because I own/run the CZ702.

    Im not running active. Just going to be running 2 amps of it, one for my sub the other for a set of components and mabey some 6x8s for the rear doors. Its either the clarion or the alpine. It looks as if i cant go wrong with either one tho.
