Default S2000 audio/video systems

I figured to make it easy to view different installs in one thread I would start this, and stick it so it becomes a easy point of reference.

List your system components and then add pictures.

Thanks,
PAS2KNut

yo. Alpine headunits in da house.

is it me, or are Alpines the most popular headunits for S2000s. is there any particular reason-- like compatability w/ DJ Qube's audio controls or is it just because Alpine is the best?

for me, looks-wise the Alpine's are kinda ho-hum, but since it's behind the radio door, looks don't really matter. I'd take quality over looks anyday (except when it comes to girlies-- then it'z a coin toss )

as far as looks, the Blaupunkt San Francisco or Munchen are more to my taste, altho the quality isn't as good as other headunits. I do like that they have the keycard technology, which lets you secure the headunit simply by removing a "key card" (like a credit card) from the unit, rather than having to take off the entire face. you can keep the key card in your wallet. but I have the Munchen in my beater CRX, and they start having issues a bit too quickly for my tastes/budget. they also get really really HOT.

nice installs, btw. I especially like Sleepy's slick iPod integration.
