I'm looking to put a double din receiver in my '09 Rabbit, and I'm not really familiar with car audio (coming from HT audio) so I was hoping to get some good recommendations here, or to be pointed in the direction of some knowledge.
Trying to keep it under $400, but really the cheaper the better, as I don't need many features. I'm ideally looking for a unit that will give me a (guessing a sub pre-amp would be nice, what kind of wattage should I be looking for?). Features I'm looking for:
- Bluetooth phone and music streaming from an iPhone 3GS
- SD card slot
- Physical volume knob
- Red lighting to match the stock dash (the less obnoxious the better)
I like the clean look of many of the nav/DVD receivers, however I have no need for nav (my phone is better), DVD, HD Radio, Pandora, steering wheel controls, etc. and I'm looking to keep to my budget.
From what I understand I should be looking at Alpine and Pioneer decks, but features seem to vary wildly each model year, and SD slots seem to have disappeared along the way.
Thanks for any help or advice.
