Where do you find red faced head units? - 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 Where do you find red faced head units?

I've been drooling over this lately, and I think it'* going to be the closest I can get to what I want. It'* nearly perfect... except one thing... IT DOESN'T MATCH THE BONNE! Anyone know of any decent head units that have red face plates to match the bonne, with similar specs? Not Sony... I have a personal hate for that company. Not that I should, but only head units I've ever heard by them produced way too much mid range and not enough highs. Any input would be appreciated!

I'm going to pull apart my eclipse this winter and replace all the real small LEDs to red and with Map Disk Ver 2.1 i can change the screen colors and pictures.

Im not sure about moding the center display on that HU tho. The buttones might be easy enough tho. Or call pioneer they might have something for you.

Just find one that lights up red or one where you can select the color.

I hope you have a VERY nice soldering iron and amazingly steady hands.
