How to find out what head is compatible

So I was curious if there was a tool or website which will display what head units (and other audio parts) are compatible with your car. I'm not very knowledgeable about audio or audio systems, car or home, so it'd be nice to have a place that said "Yes, this particular piece of equipment will work with your car." Or if anyone happens to know any good heads that work on a 2002 V6 coupe mustang with the Mach 1000?

Either way, thanks in advance for any help, really appreciate it

Just about any headunit you can find will fit. But then again at the same tie, you will need a dash installation kit no matter what.

I would jump on to crutchfield, go through the outfit m car part and find out the mounting depth of a headunit than just check whatever headunit's your looking out for their depth.

So does it need to be a double DIN with the right depth and that's it?

It can be a single DIN or double DIN. Just depends on what stereo installation kit you with.

But keep in mind, you will need an aftermarket stereo installation kid with any aftermarket stereo you buy. Nothing will slide right in their except stock. Dont be afraid tough, its stupid easy to install a headunit and rewarding :smilie.

Gotcha, yeah really all I want is the aux jack, but I figured if I'm gonna have that, could be nice to upgrade the head unit, or at least can't hurt ^.^ ... also my volume knob randomly decides which way the volume is going to go ... I turn it left and sometimes it decides to tell me I shouldn't turn my music down, but instead it should be full blast, then when I wanna turn it up, half the time it's tired of listening. So ... figured why not just replace the head unit maybe get a bit better sound out of my system, and have an aux jack
