Best aftermarket head unit?
 
I have the basic 6 speaker stereo system and I'm considering buying an all Infiniti reference speaker system.

They don't handle a lot of power so I'm just looking for the best head unit to run them with. Possibly a screen. But no $1K screen! Lol

Any/all input appreciated:thumbsup:

i just bought JVC KW-AVX740 for my silverado and the unit is pretty good for the price (350+ on ebay)

best thing about it is that i can use my iphone to stream video / audio as well as use an app called motionX gps drive to stream a Nav screen on to the unit. pretty cool feature imo.

Take a look at the Pioneer DEH-7200HD I had one in my Silverado before I bought my Jeep.

Mmmm I like screens. What's the rms output per channel?

Dang. I'm trying to possibly find something that sends ~40 watts per channel so I wouldnt need to amp them.

the JVC kw-avx740 is 20watts rms per channel (that is 20w x 4) and peak is 50watts x 4

The only other HU I'll buy is Alpine.

Me too man. I've had no problems with pioneer in the past but alpines are quite delicious.

So in my research, I've found that alpine makes a "Power Pack" which acts like a mini amp that goes directly behind the HU and sends a 45x4 signal! They run $99 w/ shipping on eBay, but they seem worth it for the power. Actually amping them is a PITA!

I might do this. Are there any good dash kits for my stock bezel that will center a single din? I hate the ears, but I'll probably end up painting it to match
