yea i know what you mean. i had only pioneer HUs in my car for a few years and then i bought my eclipse and absolutely love it! not saying that i wasn't satisfied with the pioneers but the eclipse SQ just blew me away. especially since i dont have to have external processing because i feel that my HU has sufficient processing to get by.

but if i feel that i want to try something new then i will venture out and try something if i feel the need to do so. i'm pretty open to new things.

choke your chicken............. iwas referring to different brands as far as building your system. meaning pioneer HU mtx subs alpine amps kenwood passive etc,etc, etc. every part of your system is made by a different manufacture. now do you understand what im saying.

I was really trying to stay with pioneer, but i have taken a liken to a few kenwwod HU they were impressive and i guess what i was getting at is that iknow my pioneer set up in my cirus sounded **** good. but before i put in the pioneer HU i was running jvc and trust me the combo was not that good.

Some companys have a specific product that is good, while the rest of their stuff is mediocre. There's nothing wrong with mixing and matching to get the best possible equipment in my opinion.

use whatever product that suits your needs, if matching appeals to you then go for it and if you stay with a cetain brand for whatever reason then go for it as well, what it all boils down to is your satisfaction of the sound being produced.

Every part of your Dell, Sony, Alienware, and so-on is built by a different manufacturer as well. :)

Then we find out that all the chips come from god****ed Malaysia;

CHIPS : Malaysia
SUBS : Buildhouse

Current system:

HU - Pioneer (Premier)
Processing - PPI eq/MTX xover
Speakers - MTX (black gold)
subs - Pioneer (Premier PRS)
Amps - Pioneer (Premier PRS)
cd changer - Pioneer

System going into next vehicle:

HU - Pioneer (premier) P9
Processing - Pioneer (premier) P9
Amps - Pioneer (premier PRS)
speakers - Pioneer (premier PRS)(mids and highs/MTX(midbass)
subs - Pioneer (premier PRS)

As you can see my current setup is sort of diverse but the next one will be totally active with basically ALL Pioneer Premier. I've heard all of this equipment and love the performance of all of it so there is NO need to change.:D

I got the P9 combo for a little over 1300. The 5 PRS amps I have a little over a grand into them. The subs were 700 for the pair. I do NOT yet own the PRS components but they will probably be around 300 for the mids and tweets.

I buy only to suit my current whim and or what they have cheap at the pawnshop. 80% of my gear comes from the pawnshop.

I'm a die-hard fan of Kenwood - haven't owned another brand of HU since '89 or '90. I am not a fan of their speakers, however, so I look elsewhere for those. I continue to be perfectly satisfied using Kenwood HUs and amps - but as far as speakers go I have owned too many different kinds to consider myself 'loyal' to any one company.

I love the DAT gear I'm running now but if I had gotten as good of a deal on something else comparable when I was doing my eBaying I would have been easily willing to try those out as well.

I have a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X589, and I love mine :) I liked the head unit I had in before, but now that I have had this one for about 3 weeks and tweeking it up, it just blows me away. I know what you are talking about though with the different brands to complete a system. I am running 3.. The Excelon head unit, Infinity kappa's and Alpine's. It all works for me so I am happy with it. :)
