Lightbulb Should I get this HU????

I would like to buy a new head unit that has 5 volt preouts. I have been looking at a kenwood (Kenwood KDC-MP828) on cardomain.com and I need your guys’ opinions on it. I actually wish that this HU didn’t have the “g-force analyzer” because it seems like they would have to sacrifice something else (such as sq) in order to fit in this extra feature. But the price is great and I have a buyer for my old head unit so I think it is time to upgrade so let me know if you guys have had any experiences or thoughts about this head unit. Here is the link to the head unit http://www.cardomain.com/item/KENKDCMP828 .

How about this one then: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X790 ( WEBSITE - http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=39 31). It is actually cheaper but I have never ordered off of woofersetc so I am not sure about how they treat their customers and whether or not it will come with a warranty.

Thumbs up

I am now on my 3rd Excelon deck. There have been a couple of issues with them over the years, but nothing too serious. The SQ out of them is great, they have a full set of toys to play with, and Kenwood backs them up with good warranty service....at least around the GTA they do.....

If you want to check them out, this link has all the details......

Like most brands, the more you spend the more toys you get......
