Car Stereo

hey I'm looking into buying a new car stereo. I don't know much about car audio so I am wondering what products the community has and what you guys think of them. I'm willing to spend around $500 and I want to have a touch screen.

Re: Car Stereo

Well then you are limited, and I do mean very limited.
If you only want to spend that much.

But then again, since I was bored and feeling like I
could lend a hand....I did what someone else would
have told you to do.....and that would be SEARCH
Dude GOOGLE is your friend, you two need
to meet. Ok with that said, here is what I found in all of 32 seconds.
One more thing.....you would get more input from this thread if.....
IT WAS IN THE RIGHT SECTION...(I.C.E.)

Soundstream VIR-7860 IN-Dash Motorized 7-inch Wide Touch-Screen Monitor, AM/FM Receiver, TV Tuner, DVD Player, USB, MP4, iPod Input Connection$340.00

Re: Car Stereo

since im lazy, unlike jayknight, i've yet to use a touch screan HU. but my suggestions on HU companies, I would look into Alpine, Keenwood, or Poineer. I have experience in all 3 brands as just regular mp3/ipod hookup HUs. Do not go with Sony and don't rush into one. Also, look on www.crutchfield.com for units and reviews, thats normally where I buy from. good luck

I believe its up to 9" depth, if you go to crutchfield.com you can put in your car and it will filter to only the units that will fit, AND all instillation hardware is free. Crutchfield is really the best way to go...IMO.

Re: Car Stereo

Being that your looking for a touch screen under 5, i would just go with a regular size DIN radio and replace all the speakers. Touch screens are more for flash and that "Awe" effect more than anything. Not to mention only the BASELINE tochscreens will be anywhere near $500. Trust me...I sell this stuff everyday lol. And unless you have a security system in it I don't reccomend putting one in either.

Re: Car Stereo

a double din does look sick in out ludes, but a nice kenwood will do just fine.

Re: Car Stereo

What Gen Prelude? I have a 4th gen. I bought 4 Alpine 6.5 Type "S" for $50.00 they sound GREAT! You can get them new sometimes for $240.00 for 4 online. Just put a nice Alpine head unit (That's what I'm about to do) and you'll have a great system. I agree with MckyRcks touch screens are really expensive and is probably going to get stolen.

Re: Car Stereo

how can you say the type-s sound great... they are so sharp at high volumes...


For 500 you really wont get much more than an entry level touch screen HU, however, if that is what you are set on, then go for it. Crutchfield is a good source of information and reviews, so take a look around there. Browse on the sites too. If i recall, pioneer makes a good touch screen for about 500 bucks.

Re: Car Stereo

There are a Lot of the older model touch screens (aka pre Hi Def) TV -- if you dont watch network TV than who cares?

My Clairon retailed for over $1200 - i picked it up going through classifieds, for $400. and it is NOT some bottom of the barrell HU.

Hit some car audio forums, including Crutchfield Forums, NOT Just their sales, Fiberglass forums.com, DIY Mobile audio, Car Stereo, Car Audio.com, MP3car.com, CarAudioForum.com, SteveMeadeDesigns, etc, etc, etc.
