    can this be used as a normal head unit?

    can i use a planet audio p500dvd as a normal head unit?

    http://www.planetaudiousa.com/print/p500dvd.htm


    like can i use it as any mp3 deck?
    wat features does it lack that a normal deck has?
    (normal = pioneer deh-p7600mp, alpine cda-7893 etc..)

    i need to have control of bass/treble
    sub on/off or sub volume would be nice
    able to play cd's and mp3's
    this has 80x4 which is a huge plus for me

    ummhhh.. im not really sure wat else i need, but i have a JVC KD-S790 (which doesnt have a lot of features) which was perfectly fine for me, but i wanted mp3 also, and a little more control than that.


    can i use this dvd player thing as a head unit to replace my jvc kd-s790?

    You will never see 80watts x 4 out of a 12 volt head unit. You just can't feasably push that kind of amperage through a single din sized unit and dissipate enough heat to keep it alive.

    By 2012 (?) most vehicles will have come out with 36/42 volt charging systems, and hopefully 100wrms/channel HUs will become the norm.

    I would not buy that If I were you. Sure it will work, but for how long. true you will never see 80 watts x4. More like 4-9 watts x4. So I would recomend a more reliable HU like the alpine you listed.
