Which head unit suits with my car Single DIN and Double DIN?

There are two main radio sizes, “single DIN” and “double DIN,” and it’s actually pretty easy to figure out which one you need. If your car has a single DIN head unit, the front faceplate should be about 7” x 2” (180 x 50 mm.)

 If it has a double DIN head unit, the front face plate will be twice as tall. Since “2 DIN car stereo” is a colloquial term for double DIN, the head unit in your car will measure roughly 7 x 4 in. (180 x 100mm.) if it conforms to that standard.

If your car came with a double DIN head unit, you have the choice of replacing it with a single or a double DIN car stereo. If it came with a single DIN head unit, then you have to replace it with another single DIN head unit.


Is 2 DIN better than 1 DIN?

If you’re concerned about replacing a 2 DIN head unit with a single DIN car stereo for quality reasons, you can stop worrying! Double DIN head units aren’t necessarily better than single

DIN head units. Although there is more space for internal components (like built-in amplifiers).

The main benefit of double DIN head units is typically in the display, since double DIN comes with so much more screen real estate than single DIN. Most of the best touch screen head units fit the double DIN form factor, which also means that most of the best video head units also fall into this category. However, there are a number of great single DIN head units that have flip-out touch screens, so choosing one from factor over the other really comes down to personal preference.


Plug and play

All of our stereos are ‘plug and play’, meaning, you do not need to cut any cable to install it. It doesn’t require any adapters for your speakers, power, radio antenna or your steering wheel controls.
