the only other common brand is Jensen. there are a handful of RV entertainment system manufacturers.
Jensen is the most common and i guess Concertone is second.

if you have a tall Concertone unit, Jensen doesn't make anything similar in dimensions.

Go online to a retailer like Crutchfield.com and nose around.
A double din car stereo should just about fit. They are plentiful, cheap and depending on the features you want should do the job just fine. If it is still too small, a piece of 1/4 inch oak plywood cut and stained to match should fill the void easily.

Actually a double din will not come close to filling the hole. You will definitely need to build a trim panel to cover for any of the factory installed options.

Look for a Marine receiver, there are some that have the larger front plate and will come close to covering the hole if not exceed it. You will find better quality brands as well. Otherwise the only other option I know of would be a Jensen. Good luck

I don't know how unusual my '02 GT 325 is, but all the entertainment system on mine (in-dash radio and both TVs) are Daewoo. They don't make consumer electronics any more!

If anything happens to the in-dash radio, I guess I'm off to Crutchfield, or maybe Best Buy. We already took out the bedroom TV and we might buy a cheapy small LCD 16:9 display for the front. Costco has some odd brand 19-incher for $100. We can make it into a door for the overhead cabinet to give us more storage we don't need!
