TLDR: I need a similar spec, but shallow Double DIN head unit to replace my Kenwood Excelon DDX794 which is too deep for my application. DETAILS: I did quite a bit of research when I put the below system together for my vehicle. I spent quite awhile working on it and I managed to get everything set up and sounding great. Unfortunately the head unit is too deep for my application, which was something I never considered since the head unit was the standard depth. I'm looking for something similar to the Kenwood I selected.... obviously without the CD/DVD capability. NEEDS: Shallow Depth (5" or less) Android Support Bluetooth Spotify RCA: Front, Rear, & Sub outputs WOULD LIKE: Rear Camera input (Front Camera input would be great too). Subwoofer controls Similar built-in internal amp (unless you think my amp would suffice by itself) CURRENT HEAD UNIT Kenwood Excelon DDX794 built-in internal amp (22 watts RMS/50 peak x 4 channels) 6.95" touchscreen display with customizable background and variable color key illumination built-in Android AOA control and charging of select Android devices (Android version 4.1 and higher) using the USB connection Spotify control with iPhone and Android 13-band equalizer with digital time alignment subwoofer level, phase, and low-pass crossover controls inputs: rear USB input, rear A/V input, front- and rear-view camera inputs outputs: rear video output, 6-channel preamp outputs (5-volt front, rear, subwoofer) FRONT SPEAKERS JL Audio C2-525 REAR SPEAKERS JL Audio C2-650x POWERED SUB Rockford Fosgate PS-8 AMP JL Audio XD400/4v2
I am so excited about my latest purchase, i had to post about it BEFORE i even have it. I want and need this deck so bad i jumped up on @SonicElectronix and ordered it....from my own damn banner haha (up top). Why do i "need" a new deck? Well i am making some changes lately. If you have been following my posts, you may have seen the ipad pro dash mod i am doing in the Tahoe. It's 13" of pure Ipad sexyness. Going from a dull, old (but good) 10.2" VGA screen that is 10 years old (Shown behind it), this is going to be amazing! But i need something to run the ipad. My old Pioneer deck down below still works fine, but it is way outdated. Also, the biggest issue is that i have been spoiled with the Optical cable (From my Mac Mini) and i don't want to go back. Very few single din head units out there have an optical out. Having a USB In is also needed in my case (for the ipad). This thing has it all! To make a long story short, i chose this. I will post pics when i get the real thing. I hope to get it tomorrow! Oh and don't let the simplicity fool you...i will be able to run all the functions THROUGH the ipad (an app). This thing is gonna be so sick!! Oh and don't ever confuse this thing with Sony Xplode. If you want to compare it to something, and you are old enough to do so, compare it to Sony Mobile ES, but BETTER. (i hope lol)
