I replaced my speakers this past weekend with some 5-1/4" Kickers. While the sound is clearer, it isn't really any louder (I also put the soft top on this weekend, and realized I need more radio volume!). Has anyone bought and tried out this head unit:
JVC KD-R840BT CD receiver at Crutchfield.com
It has everything I think I am looking for.
-CD's without flipping the face down (don't know why but that annoys me, haha), but still has a detachable face
-Streaming Pandora wirelessly from my Android
-USB and audio jack on the back (so I can run extensions into my center console, to lock up the ipod)
-20w RMS/50w max seems decent on the output for my new speakers
-Close enough to my $150 ballpark price (easy to replace if/when someone steals it, haha)
-Pre amp outputs, so I can add more sound if I need to later on.
With that said, does anyone have any other suggestions for some other units to look for?
