Which Kenwood single din should I get? I want to get a Kenwood one because Price for features is best in my opinion. I have been looking at these two. should I get one of these two or should I get a different kenwood unit?

The 996 Chase. You want all the processing power that you can get for your money.

well if your port is sealed off in the trunk and subs are in the cabin then sealing it off is counter productive lol

You have to have the port and subs firing forward for it to work.

Also guys should I get the Kenwood X996 or Kenwood X997?

It sucks that you can't find 8v preouts any longer. That's one of many reasons why I love my deck!

Get a line driver like an audiocontrol matrix plus and it will solve that problem. They only run 2 bills from crutchfield, and can be had cheaper online but with less warranty.
