View Full Version : trying to find that perfect HU

11-05-2008, 10:17 PM
so basically for the price range ive been looking at the best i can come up with is the Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD. The only problem i really see with this HU is the fact that it only has 2 RCA preamp channels.

is this really the best in dash video player in the 300-400 price range?? I cant see to find anything else with better reviews. Anyone else have any suggestions for a HU??

the kenwood DDX512 is also nice but only has 2 pre-outs also...

you can use y splitters?

id rather not use splitters because ive heard that can cause some sound quality to be lost because its not direct. I Mean if it comes down to it and I have to use splitters I will but id was hoping not to.

splitters are fine. also many amps come with preamp outputs.

splitters also divide the input voltage

using splitters you would lose the ability to fade
