    And now I have a Kenwood KIV-700 and it's the best one out there! This unit doesn't have a CD player, which I could care less about since I have an iPod. lol My speakers and subs have never sounded better! It even plays video!

    It took me weeks to find one I liked. Payed around $320 for the unit plus labor.

    Thanks. I was so picky about which one to get. I wanted the other model like this one that had Bluetooth but it was $400 and was waaayyyy out of my price range. But hey, only reason I got it was because I made Deans list again and my parents decided to reward me. I payed half and they pitched in, that and my other unit was shorting out. Go figure, it's a Sony. lol

    Is that a common problem. I love my Panasonic but after only light use after 3 years. It cuts in and out. I now realize the power is fine cuz it remembers my settings.

    Yeah I lived with it as long as I could but when it made my speakers start buzzing is where I drew the line. I'm a music junkie and the shitty head unit just wasn't gonna fly anymore.

    The Kenwood definitely looks a whole lot sweeter. Have you upgraded anything else(speakers, amps, subs, etc)?

    I just bought a kenwood x994! I can't wait to put it in. How did you paint your trim pieces white??? I've painted mine white too but yours look smooth to the touch.

    The USB feature is awesome on decks.

    I bought a Clarion a couple years ago with the USB hook up. Bought an 8GB usb drive and it's so dang easy....

    Yeah they're perfectly smooth. All I did was use 1000 grit sand paper and wet sanded it and sent the pieces off to my friend who painted them for me. Had them like that for 3 years and they've never chipped and still look like they were just painted.
