Aftermarket Head Unit Suggestions

I recently found a dash kit at a scrapyard for my 07 hatch (couldnít pass it up for $12), now I need to find a radio the one I have and planned on putting in the car was a double din pioneer but the kit I found is only a single din. I thought I would put this out there looking for some opinions on aftermarket systems.
The things I NEED are:
Bluetooth
At least 2 sets of pre-outs on the back
I kind of like the flip out ones does anyone have an opinion on those?

Careful with the flip-up screen ones - lots of moving parts, lots of potential to break.

That being said, I haven't been in the market for an aftermarket radio in a decade....so my opinions could be way off haha.

Alpine is the best bet if you don't mind paying the money. Sony might be another option (installing one later this month in my mom's Ram) but do not have much current experience with them to know reliability. Have had nothing but issues with standard issue Pioneer decks lately, especially with BT interfacing. I installed a Kenwood 1-din deck in my mom's truck about 4yrs ago and the tuner is now dead, so use caution with them as well. Also, be aware that JVCs are basically dumbed down Kenwoods.


Agree wholeheartedly with @Byakuya, avoid the fancy 1-dins with the motorized screens. 4-5yrs from now (if that far out), it will end up being a nightmare.

Thanks for the input so far. @michael95350 I was having the same thought about the flip up radios they seem interesting to look at but Iím just not sure about the reliability/longevity of them, also 100% agree on alpines they truly are the best just donít want to spend that much on a radio for this car.
For anyone who cares Iím currently thinking about going with this one so far it wins as far as everything I want still looking though as I donít need one right away

Okay so I'm not totally out of the loop yet - I've loved any Alpines that I've used in the past. I've also had good luck with a single Pioneer unit that I had in the old 6.
