A complete range of head units for the sound enthusiast
When selecting a new head unit for your vehicle there is certainly no shortage of choice and range so it is important to consider a few things when making your next purchase. Head units will be available in two different sizes being single DIN & double DIN. The DIN (Duetch Industri Normen) refers to the height of the unit with double DIN head units have larger screens whereas single DIN units are a single slot traditional height unit. You can change between single & double DIN units if you vehicle has space and can use one of the DIN adapters to make sure it is looks factory when done. It is also really important to understand the types of accessories or smartphone integration you will want to run via your head unit to make sure you purchase the one best for needs. Whilst some double DIN units will have great graphical interfaces they may not support the displaying of maps or other content, looking for units that are Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatible is a good start if you want to fully integrate your device to your vehicle via the head unit.
If you are also running any other audio components in your vehicle it will important to check that these can still be run from the new head unit and any additional installation to make these work is considered. The selection & installation of the new unit should also take into account the total audio system in your vehicle & check to make sure that the require channels & outputs are available from the unit to run either an existing or new sound system you intend on installing. A full range of audio system components can be found online or at your local Repco store including amplifiers, sub woofers, speakers & amp wiring kits including brands like Kenwood, Sony, Pioneer, JVC & Philips to give you the ultimate stereo system. Lastly it is important to consider installation costs when selecting a new system. When adding additional components to your factory system it is important to make sure that this is done correctly and incorrect installation can be hazardous given the power required to drive amplifiers & sub woofers and should always be done by an experience installer.
