    Which head unidt is better guys ? HElp

    I am about to start implementing my system. I am in the middle of choosing two headunits for my car. I concern about sound quality and great bass. can u guys suggest me which headunit is better?.

    1. Clarion DXZ935.......AM/FM CD PLAYER WITH AC-PROCESSOR II

    Motorised Dual Action Detachable Face
    Dolby Pro Logic II
    18FM/6AM Presets
    CeNET Control of: Optional 5.1 channel Dolby Digital/dts Processor, Optional TV Tuner, Optional DVD Changer and 6 Disc CD Changer
    CD Text, CD Titling, Station Titling
    Dual 24-bit DACs
    Plays CD-R & CD-RW
    3 Band Parametric EQ
    Built-in DSP for Time Alignment, Seat Position, Virtual Space Enhancer

    DCP Carrying Case Included

    2. Pioneer DEH-P8500MP

    RMS Power Output: 22x4 Watts

    RMS: Root Mean Square is a formula that provides a reasonably accurate means of measuring and comparing continuous AC power. The use of this measure is preferred when matching system components, like amplifiers and receivers.

    Subwoofer Preamp Outputs: Yes

    Preamp Output: Typically found on headunits, a preamp output provides low level, high quality audio signal for use with external amplifiers.

    Maximum Power: 50x4 Watts

    Maximum Power: The amount of power a speaker is estimated to handle during a brief high-intensity musical burst. Since this can vary with both frequency and amplitude, it is a much less accurate way to judge speaker durability and performance than RMS.

    DIN: 1

    DIN: Acronym for Deutsche Industrie Norm (Deutsches Institut fuer Normung), the German standardization body. A world reference standard for the mounting parameters of many common receivers ( Head ends) as well as other types of cables and equipment.

    CD-R/CD-RW Compatible: Yes


    CD Text: Yes


    XM Radio Ready: Yes


    Remote Control: Yes


    Detachable Face: Yes


    EQ Bands: Yes


    Changer Control: Yes

    Disc naming
    Easy EQ (5 EQ curves and 3-band parametric EQ)
    Sound Focus EQ (sets different tone settings on front and rear speakers to improve front soundstaging)
    Automatic Sound Levelizer (adjusts receiver's volume automatically to compensate for changes in road noise levels)
    XM Satellite Radio controls (subscription, tuner, antenna required to receive the satellite radio signal)
    Built-in high-pass and low-pass filters
    4-volt front/rear/subwoofer preamp outputs
    Optional auxiliary input
    Clock
    Wireless remote

    Yup, Delco is what all the big comp winners use, all these other brands (Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer etc) are no where near as clean, if you want true SQ out of your deck, you need to get a 3000 series declo deck...

    Pioneer definately... I'd even choose the 835 over the 935...
    (A $1199 RRP unit with no MP3? What were you thinking Clarion?)
