Which single din car deck?

1324 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  integrasaurusrex
I need to replace my stock base car deck, I only need USB so nothing fancy. Budget is around $100 and I'm planning to install myself. Now which car deck should I get with easy installation and fits perfectly to the stock cover housing, so I don't have to get another dash kit?

TIA!

Any single din will work well in the base, Kenwood KDC-155U is solid for 100 bucks.

2x on a Kenwood.

I have a Kenwood KDC-252U and I am really happy with it. Red lighting matches the RSX lighting. USB/MP3 CD/3.5mm jack. Everything you need for a simple single din.
x3 on Kenwood

I have the KDC 248U and am completely satisfied with it. Front USB/3.5mm and I payed $70 on Amazon back in the day.

Just a side note, mine does go into protect mode when it's cold out. I'm not sure if this is a Kenwood problem, or just something wrong with my system.

My speakers make a wheezing noise when it is extremely cold out, but radio playback never gets affected.

I got my 252U from a friend for 50$ with harness and type S wiring kit. Basically all nearly new and everything I needed :D he really gave me a deal on that one :bow:

Sounds like it might be Pneumonia :dontknow:

Yeah, I think I wound up paying right around $100 for everything I needed for the swap.
Besides going into protect mode, I really love this head unit. Need a Kenwood in my daily now :p
