there's the discontinued Kenwood Excelon X494 that I used to have in my 96 corolla that recently got totaled. I thought about trying to take it out, but it was too much trouble. I was able to remove my amp, but everything else in my trunk was non-retrievable...sub got ripped out of the box and couldn't believe one of the 2 sets of terminals literally ripped off!

Kenwood Excelon X494

if you hook up a usb thumb drive to it, it only sees up to 32gb and up to 255 folders.

if you're looking for a cheaper head unit, that kenwood mp345u is a good deal. I prefer the x-494 because it has 4v preamp outputs so if you plan to hook up a 2/4 channel or class d mono amp, the 4v preamp outputs mean that your amp won't be cranked all the way up to match the head unit's output. With higher preamp outputs like 4v and 5v, the amp won't have to work so hard.

sorry but I don't think members here want to deal with stuff directly from china being that shipping will be delayed because it has to go through customs, plus there are audio aficionados who have boycotted or just not trusted companies who have switched to products made in china...you know, they fall apart after the first few uses!

the deck starts to send a clipped signal at 1.5-2.1 volts... it has nothing at all to do with the amplifier whatsoever..

most of the time starting bout 34. my jvc did the same thing. It did it without the amp not powered. volts in headunit really makes a difference. headunit is the main factor in a system
