Hi, i'm doing an install on a buddy's car and he wants a Soundstream Head unit.
Has anybody had experience with is head unit?

It looks nice. Setup: Soundstream BX-20Z bass proccessor, 2 t6 12's with stinger electronics and Soundstream's Powerplant thing. Will this HU be a nice addition to the soundstream setup?

Their in dash multimedia players are absolute garbage. Avoid at all costs. Pioneer has one similar style that actually works well, and I've had good luck with the Jensen in-dash multimedia players. Pay the extra 150$ to get one that works, or if you insist on buying the power accoustic/soundstream buy it from a store that takes returns.

They still got good subs and processors tho. The bass processor is very nice with the tarantula amp and t6's

Soundstream head units are Power Accoustic with a spider on them. A few other SS products are just power accoustic with a spider on it.

Have they made HU's as long as they made amps and subs?

This is the first SS HU I can ever recall seeing.

Alright, Well We're gonna go with this JVC Head unit. But just to make sure. Soundstream still has good subs and amps and bass processors right? i wanna do a similar set up to this in my cousins car because he like soundstreams too.

Their higher end subs and amps are decent.

Alright so the T6's and a tarantula2000d are a good beginner system. This is my first real encounter with soundstream. just trying to make sure i'm buyin quality. I like them i have to admit. and the processor really improves the bass. hopefully they last. i have heard some shady accounts about soundstream.
