    Need a basic good looking headunit new or used.

    Hey guys, i'm back from a long hiatus. Back again looking to replace my stock 94 Accord Wagon EX headunit bc I'd like to add a Dayton HO or similar SQ subwoofer to my speakers. This is my daily driver and I don't care if anyone else hears me outside the car and I usually don't listen to music real loud anyways...just want to fill in the lows in rock/rap/etc. Obviously I'd like to replace the headunit instead of using a LOC with the stock radio bc I;ve heard SQ suffers.

    So these are my requirements:
    -Look good(I haven't looked at HUs since 2008. Loved the Alpines back then)
    -Have an aux in for my phone
    -cheaper is better as I believe anything will be an upgrade and power the puny stock speakers just fine
    -good pre outs for amps

    Cheaper is better. Just want something with good Pre-Outs for amps and aux in so I can hookup Pandora through my android phone

    Get one with bluetooth, it's way more convenient than an aux cable IMO. Not to mention a decent HU should be able to display song/artist info when streaming pandora.

    Really don't like bluetooth to be honest. Would much rather just plug in a cord

    Ended up going with a Kenwood X597. Had all the features I wanted plus some. Bluetooth, 4v pre-outs, variable colors, 22x4 RMS, 2yr warranty, etc
