View Full Version : Motorized DVD with more than a 3 Band EQ?

Well I have about had it with my Pioneer Premier DEH-960MP. Absolutly love the functionality of it, but I have had way too many problems with it.

1. The all famous alternator whine that I have already had fixed, but came back.

2. CD's wont eject most of the time

3. Screen has lines that flicker every once in a while.

4. Now the motorized front plate wont go down all the way

5. Buttons no longer work!!!



So I was looking at getting a AVX-P8DVD, since its in my price range. But I noticed it only has a 3 Band EQ.. Started looking at the higher end ones, same.... I like Pioneer, even though they really screwed up bad on the dependibility of this deck, but I have had many others with no problem.

Are there any other fold out DVD's that is geared to Sound Quality rather than just the DVD?

Oh and the main reason why I want the fold out DVD is because since my truck sits so high, I am wanting to add a front camera and a rear back up camera. When I park my truck, I tend to only see roof tops of vehicles. I have bumped a few and I have also left my rear end hanging out because I think I am too close.

Another functionality is I will be installing a monitor for the rear passengers so it will need an output for an additional monitor aswell.

It sounds like you should get the tv and then buy a used cd player to do the eq and stuff or you could buy an equalizer for not too much.

Thats a great idea, however I am pretty much on a budget. I am still paying for the Pioneer 960 that was $700. Gotta love 20% apr department store credit cards... I also just spent $2500 on a lift kit and new tires for the ride...

So... Im pretty much wanting an all in one system that is at the touch of a button to adjust the EQ.

Oh and sorry for my stupidity... I have been out of the car audio world for quite some time. Im rather knowledgable on the subject

3 Band EQ is now what I would consider "great"

Check into Eclipse or Alpine. One of them has like a 7 band.

Or you could just get a separate equalizer outside of the actual head unit.

9 band EQ

Wow, thats a rather nice deck. I have always wanted to own an Eclipse, but that deck is out of my price range.. Im looking in the $800's or so...

How much do seperate EQ's run and can I control them from the screen?

Oh and I dont need Navigation really either so that lowers the price.

I cant justify spending that much. I was only looking into this for the price range I was in. If anything, Ill just get my deck repaired.... Strictly on my budget. Im not into car audio as much as I use to. I also live in Dallas, already had my truck broken into for my radar detector a week after I got my Titan.

then look for a cheap dvd deck(Jensen?) and look at an RF 360.2(need a pda w/ bluetooth) or find a PPI DCX-730

You will not get what you want for the price you are willing to pay. Go with the simple double din with an external eq. It is cheaper and more effective anyway. You could go with the Alpine combo or Panasonic makes a flip out with 7 bands and cool features. Check it here... http://www.crutchfield.com/S-DWFs91giPv2/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=168550&tab=detailed_info&i=133VD6503#Tab

I have a Kenwood and want the Alpine setup if that tells you anything. Nothing wrong with the Kenwood but I want more POWER!

im currently using a crappy audiovox flipout with a kicker KQ9and a sony active xover running my 3-way front stage, and it sounds pretty darn good IMO.

I can control the external EQ with the flip out dvd right? Im not new to car audio, but I am new to DVD screens and units

you plug RCA's out of the DVD player into the EQ, and then go from the EQ to the amp. seperate controls

You have some options on the eq. Go with a trunk mount (usually cannot adjust from the dash unless its electronic like the Audio Control DQXS or Alpine 701). Go with a dash mount and turn some knobs... fun for the entire family. Or go with a HU with enough EQ to satisfy you.

Yes, I know it's Jensen.

But I installed quite a few of these at CC, and IMHO, they're excellent units. They were on 24/7, and always playing. They are very full-featured, and reliable. The touch screen always worked, the screen's resolution was excellent, it has an SD reader, iPod hookups, backup camera capability, XM-ready.... i mean, it's got everything and I believe theyre working on nav for it.

My manager was quite the perfectionist, and even he put one in his car and liked it.

Pair it up with something like this (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=16889) and you're in business.

oh, and something like this (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=16534) for the backup camera. We put one of those on an F250 and it worked great.
