I'm looking into getting a new headunit with iPod/iPhone compatibility
it's been a while since I have been in the audio scene and I don't know what's good and what's s**t anymore

I want a decent quality h/u that can play loud and clear with out an amp runnning the speakers and decent tunabilty

will be running a set of 6 inch splits in the doors and that is it!

I'm thinking about grabbing a mid range alpine deck, but just checking other peoples opinions

Cheers

Pauly,

Your probably better off saving a couple of hundred dollars and going budget with the Head deck, (Given it does what your looking for it to do); and spend the money you would have used on better quality splits.

My deck is a worth $150, and when I tune it correctly; it sounds identical to my brothers $600 deck.

I got over it and left the fucked head unit in the car. I realized there was pretty much no point spending money on something I would hardly be able to hear :lol:

I'm using this Kenwood h/u http://mobile.jbhifi.com.au/car-sound-g ... sku-99149/ I've had it for 2.5yrs now and had no dramas. It works great, sounds good "depending on your configuration" I also use the AUX jack for my iPhone. It works a treat and it's cheap as chips. If your concerned about the phone flying around while it's connected to the AUX jack, u can simply use one of the drink holders and have the other one free for your rum :lol: :)
