View Full Version : need a SPL cd player that wont skip

04-27-2009, 11:30 AM
I am finally going to start my build in a month and a half when I move from Korea to central Florida. So far I have 2 dd9518 full-carbon and AB 400.1 , all VIFA mids and highs and I am ordering an excessive amperage 180 amp alt . All going in my 2000 eclipse GT in a wall. I need a deck that wont skip like my Panisonic does when it gets over 143dbs at curtain notes. I will be looking to spend about $300-$400 and I would like it to be compatible with my I-POD and have a USB and full EQs.

Thanks guys.

a cd changer and a head unit to control it with ipod

143db isn't alot especially if your car has a well-built dash area. any deck should work for you

my pioneer avh 4000 doesnt skip at about 148db. and i listened to 4 15" ia dp's and 4 ia 20.1 doing like 151 on music and the guy had a pioneer d3 and his didnt skip

My jvc doesn't skip, I just have to jam something in the face were it flips open to keep the screen lit, must have a short.

I'm hopping for a 150 at least . Its a very small area for 2 18''s and I'm getting another 400.1 for .5 ohms per woofer and was thinking about going 16 volts with 3 Kinetiks HC16V. I can always switch between 12 and 16 volt. The 143 I was talking about was a single dd 9512 on a kicker 2500.1 tuned to 32 hz. It was an awesome setup for just street beatin around town.

my favorite permanently mounted is Eclipse 8053
Alpine 9815s for LOUD burp machines as I have 2, 1 in-dash and one in my hand.

my pioneer also skipped especially in the rex at 146 and some change. I purchased a fusion deck with the 40 anti skip and that started skipping at 153 n some change. The next route when I come out of retirement is adding a cd changer in the back like someone mentioned earlier.

fusion FCD-255

x2 on fusion decks.

iirc, this one has it where you can store the ipod inside the deck?

no it has a 40 sec anti skip for marine or cars, but it still skips but in the rex it was at 153db. It is a good deck but to go on the budget note its better to get a cd player and changer in the rear. Can get them off of ebay pretty cheap.

eh, runnin 2 400.1's at .5 ohms on only 3 batteries? might wanna rethink your electrical setup man

I think I'll go with the pioneer avh 4000. Its a double din and I'd like the fact DVD's can be watched. Have to make the wife happy with findingNemo on those long trips.

thanks for the quick reply guys

Eclipse CD3200 i have ipod interface, it has usb port and eq settings... 230 shipped

04-27-2009, 12:46 PM
definately go with a changer...

No thanks on the eclipse Seth. I think i'm going to try something with a dvd feature this time. Thanks though. Ya I know 3 batts wont be enough. I was going to get 3 kinetiks 2400 with I think would be fine. I know the woofers wont take that daily so Ill need to keep it down a little. That's the biggest alt i can have made with out costing me an arm and a leg. The problem is not the funds for the batts. Its all the weight in the car. Hell if i could id have 6 2400 but i just don't have the room or the ability to carry so much. If i stick with 12 volts all get just 2 2400s or if i go with 16 volts ill get 3 of those battery's. I have a yellow top up front so i though there wouldn't be to big of a problem and i have the big 3 already.

if you go pioneer get the premeir model I have had great luck with them but definately get a changer as well.

My pioneer head unit would never skip in my old vehicle, but in my new one it would skip as soon as I turned up the volume. Picked up the pioneer changer, and it worked perfectly at the last comp.

Cd changer is the way to go.

pretty sure fusion has one that has a 30-40 second button you can press that makes it good for runs.. forgot what it was called now.
