Default Want to replace my Shaker 1000

First off this is what I'm looking to get: http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Produ...00&tp=5684

I don't like my shaker 1000 at all.If there were an aux cable I would keep it, but me spending $150 on parts and more on labor to be able to use my ipod doesn't seem worth it to me when I can buy an aftermarket unit for slightly more which will sound better and give me what I want (I could care less about having a 6 CD changer, 1 is enough for me).

Anyway I was wondering if anybody else here has replaced their Shaker 1000 head units and 1) what they bought and 2) the differences in the sound quality, subs etc.

There are a few people that rated this HU on crutchfield with Shaker 500s and said it sounded way better and they love it etc but nothing with a Shaker 1000.

Also, what would a used Shaker 1000 go for? I see them on ebay for $400-500?! That seems ridiculously high to me. I'm planning on just throwing it on ebayover and over again lowering the reserve to see what I can get for it butif anybodys sold or bought a used one, I'd like to know what to expect.

Thanks!

Hmm this radio has 20W rated power. Seems a bit low doesn it? Plus putting something Japanese made in an american muscle car just does not seem right to me...

The 1000 doesnt mean the headunit itself has 1000 watts. The subs in the trunk are 500 watts alone, and they are powered by seperate amps. There are also subs in each door which are powered by amps. The noly difference between the 1000 is the extra jack in the back of the HU to power the amps/subs in the trunk. Everything else is exactly the same as the 500.

So the Shaker 1000 Headunit (same as shaker 500 for just powering the speakers - not subs) is

Factory AM/FM 6 Disc CD/MP3 Changer head unit produces 120 watts max power. The unit features pre-programmed speed volume adjustment
Therefore the headunit I am buying is more powerful than the stock shaker one. the speakers/amps/subs will all stay the same. I'm not looking for more power just a little more functionality. If i ever have the time I will rip out my subs from my DD and build custom boxes for them to fit above the tire wells and have a badass soundnig system. however **** rattles now so I'd have to fatmat my trunk and doors and some of the side panels in the interior as well so I likely wont even do it since that is a pain in the ***.

The 120 watts is also max power. thats 40 per channel, which means probably anywhere from 14-18 RMS (probably 16). The 20 watt RMS per channel will actually make a quite noticeable difference in volume and sound clarity. When i upgraded from a 52 watt max (18 RMS/channel) to a 50 watt max (22 RMS/channel) in my camry, it sounded SO much better, and was louder as well.
