Generally, head units are seen in floor model vehicles at car dealerships because they help to add a level of sophistication. Who doesn’t want to have a car equipped with leather seats, chrome wheels and a state of the art head unit? The simple truth is that most cars are sold with base model head units, and then the owners purchase upgraded models later on down the line. This usually happens because it is much less expensive to buy a head unit directly from a manufacturer or from an audio video dealer than it is to have included in a new car. Smaller cars usually have fewer head unit choices because the dash board is limited in size. While trucks, SUVs and pickups have more room available, mid sized sedans have the ability to use head units as well.
Many times, car owners purchase their head units along with a new set of speakers. Speakers and sub woofers can be placed in the trunk, the backseat or can be installed in the doors of your car. If you are going to get a head unit and speakers, you should leave the installation to a professional company. Between trying to distinguish between multiple wires and possibly needing to remove some panels in your car, you can easily cause damage if you don’t know what you are doing.
Smaller cars may not be able to have the biggest head units installed, however, there are many great head units that can be used. If you want to have a head unit with a touchscreen panel, simply start looking for the best manufacturers. You can order your head unit over the Internet, or you can shop for it at a local store. After you have located it, arrange to have it installed in your small or mid-sized car.
