    X3 there are so many options and budget has a big effect! BTW my dual headunit had the motor go out on it. Wasn't very happy with it but it looked sweet while it lasted.

    A word to the wise.. Dual,Jenson and a Few other of those Walmart brands like Ferinheight (spelling). Are all made by the same factory in China. I would stick with Kenwood, Pioneer (head unit only) Or Alpine..For your 2000 Din 1/2 If you want a good flip out screen Kenwood is the way to go..

    I got an Alpine ida-x303 head unit(ipod ready) from best Buy for $169 (was regularly $199 but got $30 OFF)installed for free because I also bought speakers. The guy there was top notch and did a great job. Best Buy has a lot of "HIDDEN" discounts the installer kid turned me on to. Like if you buy a head unit and speakers they gave me free install. Ask the installer about these. I then added a Viper 350HV and an Alpine Power pack Amp and got all that installed for free by the Same Installer and got like $30 off the Viper. So I was extremely happy with BB and highly recommend.
    The x303 is a nice unit and the Alpine Power pack Amp(ask HawaiiKid he turned me on to it) is a nice inexpensive power boost if you don't need boom boom sound.
