The main things I care about in a head unit is high volt pre-outs, and right now I want a unit that's cheap and where I can set the 4 channels to act as midbass and midrange instead of front/rear. I want to be able to get my 2.5's running at 400hz-600hz or so and up, where an inline 12db crossover will take over to the tweeter that came with the 6.5's I just got for Christmas. On the other two channels, I want the 6.5's bandpassed from like 80 to wherever the midrange picks up (once I get my subs, they'll play from the midranges down for now).
I really just want the least expensive way to get up and running. I'm kinda broke right now. Every head unit I've seen only lets you high pass on the 4 channels from 30-250, or low pass from 250-30 on the sub channel, nothing above and no bandpassing. I don't have any money RN for a full build with DSP, amps, and subs, but I feel bad with these 6.5's sitting in the corner and a stock radio in my truck.
Any help or wisdom is appreciated aside from the obvious "get your money up" which I'm already trying to do.
