choosing a head unit
I need help with choosing a car in-dash head unit. I want to use a carputer in my car, but also need a head unit too.
This is a requirements from the head unit:
1. at least 3 preouts for amplifire (rear+front+sub)
2. sub control via head unit
3. AUX input (a real input, not "optional", for audio from carputer)
4. at least 3 channel eq
5. mp3 (not critical - can use cd only)
6. 1 DIN size
7. EROPEAN radio frequency

Anything with Option 1 would have Option 2 already. How easy it would be to get to, no idea. I assume by #3 you mean not an external adapter, which limits your choices somewhat, excluding many Pioneers outside of the Premier series.
Any radio that has option #1 would also have something akin to option #4. Option #5 depends on the radio, but most in the higher price brackets (midrange) can do it.
You're asking a really general question here. There are probably plenty of radios that can handle it. Go do some research.
