    What is a good Head Unit that won't skip?

    Right now i have a JVC KDLH2000 and on certain tracks that have real hard continuous bass it skips bad. I am going to take it back to the shop to have it looked at but if that does not work i was wondering what head units can take a lot of pressure and not skip. Because i have 4 Orion P Series 15's on 2 Viper 1200's and when i turn it up it skips like crazy.

    Thanx

    not sure if it's a JVC thing or what but I had 2 JVC head units basicly do the same thing. Skip on long hard bass hits. But I currently have a very cheap low model JVC HU that came with my car and no problems with that one lol.

    I dont know for sure, but I am switching to Pioneer. Not because of this problem but I know I had 2 past JVC problems like that. Not a knock on JVC though, they make good HU's.

    Re: What is a good Head Unit that won't skip?

    ill talk about my experience with headunits on ****** asphalts (read as brazilian roads)

    Pioneers are almost like bulletproof...

    Sonys are waaaay ******... Alpines also skip a lot, but tollerable i think

    never heard a JVC thou, but based on the brand solo, it seems like it should skip more than an Alpine for example

    i also heard panasonics dont skip a lot, but i could be wrong

    Re: What is a good Head Unit that won't skip?

    I really haven't had any skipping issues with any deck I have owned. The BEST I have used have been Eclipses(hit railroad tracks at 40mph in a civic without skipping, for example). If your current deck skips, have you tried backstrapping to give it more support?

    Re: What is a good Head Unit that won't skip?

    Some decks that have a working buffer are awesome. I'm still absolutely amazed at the Alpine decks that I've owned with no electronic buffer, yet they don't skip... I mean ever.

    A couple examples... Several of my vehicles were extreme off-roaders (as in monster trucks that I'd launch off the dirt ramps and "whoopdeedoos" at a place we call 9-mile Hill")... This was over a decade ago and the suspension of the Alpine decks was so advanced that the music never skipped a beat, even after bending the hell out of my front lift twice from bad landings. Another time, even earlier, I was driving a little Toyota MR2, and a driver beside me didn't see me and literally ran me off the road changing lanes. I crashed into a median and caught air. The front end was pretty well ripped up but all I was thinking was "it didn't skip". All Alpine. I've skipped one of my Alpine decks one time, that I remember, and that was on some beyond crazy constant jarring in the road on a dirty disk. I have to say, without buffer, the Alpine decks absolutely freak me out how well they keep a track!

    My JVC KD-LHX500 works fine no matter how hard the bass hits. I got mine for $140 shipped. The touchscreen is nice.

    Re: What is a good Head Unit that won't skip?

    Neither of my Eclipse's have ever skipped....a big reason other than sq i continue to use them. My brother had a cd3434 a dropped celica that jittered up and down every pebble on the road and never once skipped either. He now has that same deck in a 98 4runner that has a very rough, truckish suspension with its solid beam axle and still the deck manages to be unaffected. Great dampened player mechanism in these decks...
