  • Diodes in the audio path are going to make the system sound terrible.

There are switches available for swapping between sets of speakers : check out the HiFi world - you can use these to switch between two head units.

Depending on the type of switch you may be able to switch only the supply from either head unit and common the relevant returns. However, if both head units are powered then you may have interference issues.
