You might have to run some speaker wire up and down the car (which shouldn't be bad, just hide them under the runners).
What are you looking for your head unit to do?
I didn't really want a head unit at all but considered that route because line out converters aren't much and I thought it would be my only option. If I was going that route though, I wanted navigation and the works. Things I don't need when the main goal is just sound quality and I'd prefer to keep the stock look.
