Head Unit Conundrum - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Default Head Unit Conundrum

Well time has come to order Audio equipment...

I'm going with some wicked components (Already have them) Powered by likely a T600-4 Rockford.



Subs... Well I was offered a great deal on a Set of 15 Inch Sledge Hammers in a box 1100.00

But I think I want more...

I'm looking at building something with 3 Kicker Solo X'* (15'*)
then pushing them with 6 Rockford 2500.1'*
2 Amps to each sub..
If I go that was I will likely jump the Components to 1000.4 Front and rear.

I know I could buy a 10000.1 but check the PRICE OMG I almost died...

What I am most worried about now is the head Unit I'm at a dead end...

I want USB,Nav,DVD,Bluetooth IPOD all that Jazz...

I'm looking at this
Kenwood Excelon DNX9140

Is there better ???

Friend of mine have it in her corolla, its a good HU but I definitely like mine more
I have the JVC KW-NT1.. It got built in bluetooth, built in frickin fast GPS, behind the screen SD card reader, front USB and aux input, rear another aux input, and all the other toys

Best things about the HU: its fast, very fast when punching in an address or looking by category, boots up in less than 6 seconds, read§ my 8GB sd card as if I'm browsing my computer, no loading whatsoever, compatible with ipod and iphone, you can watch video also from your ipod or iphone and you browse through them probably faster than the ipod itself.

What I don't like about it: no **** for the volume, but very very responsive touch buttons

Worst thing about it: NONE

I'm a big fan of Kenwood products. Everything in my car is Kenwood.

yep onboard GPS and bluetooth, and you can update both through SD card or USB stick
also the touch screen on it is very responsive, as good as an iphone touch screen
if you need more info or a video of it i can do that
