Just ordered two SA 10's(=

Anyone have any suggestions for a very good single din aftermarket headunit that supports Sirius and has at least 3 rca outputs that are 4 volts or better?

I'm kinda partial to kenwood myself but this definitely meets your criteria.

Sweet. Good choice. I have SA-8s in my truck. Love them.

I would look at a kenwood also. Ive owned a bunch of alpines and a couple kenwoods and now a pioneer. I loved the Kenwood. Hate pioneer. Alpines are to expensive to get all the features that cheaper kenwoods already have.

My next headunit will be the Kenwood X996.

3 4 volt outputs
13 band EQ
Rear aux and USB
Bluetooth
HD radio
sat radio ready.

Some other options for you.

Thanks guys! Yeah I always had kenwood headunits in my truck in highschool then I got my focus. I guess I will just sell my LC6 and get an aftermarket headunit haha. More options and better consistency of output when switching from sources such as aux/cd/radio/satellite

I will probably go with the x996 since both of you have suggested it, and it seems to be Kenwoods top of the line single din

looking real good, was gonna ask how you sealed it up. most people tape off the trunk with masking tpe and trash bags and then fil the gaps with expanding foam. ive heard that gorilla tape is a great way to do it to though.

if you go with crutchfeild or sonixelectronics for buying your deck then they will list all the acc they sell for that car and deck. should list the needed wire harnesses for the sat radio. i got my pioneer deh 80prs from crutchfeild and it came with the dash kit, wire harness and antanne adapter for free with free shipping all the way here to alaska.
