I don't have any personal experience with the KCD-148, but I do have a KDC-MP342U and love it to death. The one you are looking at has a similar design to mine, and I love the way mine works! If I had to choose between Sony Xplod, and Kenwood, I would definately go with Kenwood, that's just my personal preference! I know a guy here at the local Car Toys, and he said that for the price, Kenwood makes some nice headunits! Either way, I'd say go with the one that makes you the happiest! Hope that helps a bit man!

yo man, i went to wal mart after work today to find this specific radio, the store didn't have it!!! Just online, so I ended up buying a nicer Xplod stereo than the one in my truck now, the new one io bought is much nicer, plus, has port for usb cable and aux. hole. Its nice. 2 color-light options too. Blue and Green.

Very cool man! Sounds like a sweet headunit! I love those ones that have the multiple color options. You'll have to post some pics of it when you get a chance!

i need to find the time to install it haha. I only got the headunit, no dash it, no wires, this is because I already had the dash kit from my older xplod, plus wires, and the man who worked there answered my question, " I bought the wires already for my older one, i don't need to buy another set of wires right?" with " Right". haha. So, I just got the head unit. i have the wires ( they are hooked to my xplod i have installed now)

I hear ya man! I know how it is to want to do something, and not have the time. It drives me nuts. haha! It sounds like most of the hard work is already done, since you already have the wires and dash kit where they need to be, so that's cool! It's always nice to have one less thing to worry about!
