Any ideas on a decent head unit for about £250? Recomendations? Not bothered about mp3 capability... Just need a 4x50w (or 4x52w), with double sub out, and a face off.


As you may, or may not know, i had a sony xplod mx800, lovely unit until it got pinched... :| want something similiar but face off really..

I brought the Pioneer DEH - P7600MP after it got really good reviews. looked around on price etc and managed to get it for £223.00 including delivery from www.letsbuycaraudio.com Looked in Halfords to compare prices and it was up for over £360!! Its a great little unit that has a full EL display MP3 and WMA files compatible also. I just burnt 200 tracks to a CD from my PC and it plays them showing the file name etc... Great power output and its 4 x 50W. Can highly recommend it m8
