alright so christmas is fast approaching and for me that means car stuff. Right now im thinkin about getting a new flip out headunit. i think it would look cool and i would actually use it. i found a couple on line and need some advise. My parents are not going to spend 1000 bux on one thing and i really dont want them too so i was wondering about the cheaper ones. i foundthis one at sonic electronics, is it any good. any other suggestions would be great, thanx

I would go with ebay over that man. I just paid $800 for the kenwood 25th anniversery one, which is a damn nice unit. The pyle isn't all that great, and you'll get more options from a better brand.

all I can say is ...

Don't do it, it is a trick, get an axe.
not trying to knock you on this but,
Pyle equipment is by no means quality equipment. You may pay 450 now,but in a month it will go out and you will be out another 450.

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-1jWNwwCH8Ik/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=168550&I=020VRX765

this would be more worth the money spent honestly. it is a touch higher priced, but at least it is a name brand and coming from a reputable dealer.

I cant really say, since I haven't seen the quality on more expensive units...but it is pretty good for the price I paid.

Most flip-out monitors are single dins. The stock unit is a double din( i think...heh) so you have space left over, but they normally come with a holder to fill up the space. Either one that can hold cd's or just like a cubby slot. BTW I have a jensen and i would say for the money it's excellent and the video quality is better then some of the high dollar ones i've seen. Never had a problem with it.
