    Pioneer DEH-P3500

    Well, i put this headunit in my dad's truck a couple years back bc he was complaining about not having a cd player. Installs perfectly in a 92-96 ford f150 by the way.

    anyways, i am now getting his truck. I was reading some reviews on it to see what others thought about it and i came across this.

    Weaknesses:
    doesnt have a Bass RCA output. Non motorized face. only 3 color face panel.

    This is the thing that bothers me: doesnt have a Bass RCA output
    Does this mean i cannot hook up an external amp to run my subs? Or is this guy retarded?

    I always thought that as long as you have a set of preouts then you are ok to hook up an external amp and run whatever you want off of that amplifier.

    Am i right or am i going to have to invest in a better deck?

    NOTE: This deck is temporary because i am on a budget and it saves me $200 towards my car audio by keeping this unit. WILL UPGRADE LATER ON!!

    Re: Pioneer DEH-P3500

    I have this head unit

    When I got my sub and amp intalled, the guy mentioned that it didnt have a dedicated sub output. Instead he said he would have to switch the rear output to the subs, thus losing rear speakers. However, after I got my car back, I have output out of all 4 of my speakers and my sub is hitting hard. So I have no idea what the truth is...

    I have the DEH-P3600 and it DOES have a sub output. All it really does is enable you to control the subs individually from the rest of the system directly from the head unit. I've attached my subs to both pre-outs, the bass response difference is only minimal.

    So yes, you can install subs to that unit. Just get an RCA splitter

    Re: Pioneer DEH-P3500

    i have the 3500
    it has 2 sets of RCA outs, one pair for the fronts and one pair for the rears/sub
    just use the rear outs for your sub amp and it works just fine
    if you want to hook up a 4ch amp as well, then you will need splitters

    Re: Pioneer DEH-P3500

    well if one of your amps has a signal output, you could use that and have no drop in pre-out voltage
