That kenwood dogs that clarion. I am taking it you dont know the kenwood that I have and that he is talking about. Out 10yrs playn with car audio this has to be one of the best h/u's I have ever had. I wouldnt even be selling it but have no use for it now.

I dont know just personally I have never had luck with Kenwood, actually everything I have owned, has broken within 2 months or 6 months past warranty, but maybe its just me :confused:

My Kenwood headunit broke on me 5 times in 6 months...........switched to Pioneer Premier and haven't looked back since.


But out of those options, I'd go Clarion

yea the lower end kenwoods **** azz, I can admit that, but the higher ones, like mine. Was awsome it has never skipped on me or have I had any problems with it. Its a good 3 yrs old. But I have had many problems with the lower end kenwoods. But I also had same problems with the lower end alpines. So you get what you pay for.

I opted for a pioneer cause i have had them in the past and i know they are awesome for lasting a long time, btw i got it tonight and installed it and it sounds great now i just have to get 4 good 6 1/2's to put in the integra and it will rock for sure

Pioneer DEH-P3600

Its not just you ....no luck here either.... quality issues from my last 2 Exelon HU's, that was enough for me - Anyways, a company that would sell
their refurb equipment off their own storefront(Kenwood Factory Outlet) close to msrp gets no respect from me

wow, I havent owned any other excelon modle but this one, and my buddy got the 911 when I got mine, he still has his and I have mine. Neither of us had 1 problem. I guess maybe we had a good year to get them when they made them. I am sure you guys know how that goes. But I cant complain about my excelon the best deck I have ever had.

With all do respect, none of the above. I used Kenwood Excelon since for 4 years, I used Alpine for 3 and I will never purchase a Sony or Pioneer low quality head unit.

The thing about all these head units brands mentioned above is that they all put so much in their head units appareance but they forget about the quality of sound. Eclipse is real way to go for the best sound in the market.


The only Head unit I can sincerely and respecfully recomend to you, regardless of the type or genre of music that you listen to outhere is:

The Eclipse 8454, is an over all winner. There is no winning match in the market right now.

Good luck finding one for $100 shipped though (as the other 3 mentioned were) :p:
