I have decided that I wan't to upgrade my car stereo and like the stickys said have looked at a head unit first. This is going in my ford escape(yeah I know, but I am using this for the next 4 years of college). I have looked at the brands recommended in the stickies and have found my price range to be from 300-375. I have decided between three I would consider so far. I would just like your input on which of these are the best and if there are any others in this price range worth considering. http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=4227 http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&product_id=5433 (so far my favorite, like the compatability with the ipod.) http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=18392 In the future I am going to add speakers and an amp and sub so also consider what would be most compatible. Any head unit I get needs to be ipod compatible.
