You may not know that you're sending a clipped signal to every single thing beyond your head unit, but it's happening. It's there, it's square, get used to it.

    I'm only trying to help you out. I care because I don't like seeing ignorant people stay ignorant. What's wrong with that?
    Awesome post! Everything you said was right on. I have a $60 Pioneer deck that sounds OK in my beater work truck, and it puts $100 Boss and other low end decks to shame. It definitely clips the signal on anything but the "flat" or "normal" settings. Most people don't have a trained ear to hear when they are clipping or damaging their speakers. I know many people that are blowing or have blown their speakers and can't even hear the speaker hating life until its too late! lol

    If you have a good quality D/A converter (24 bit burr brown) in your CD player and are running an external amp......you will be hard pressed to hear the SQ difference. I am running a $130 Kenwood deck with a 24-bit Burr Brown into a Rockford 501x amp....it sounds great to me, and I've heard 100's of systems. I think its more like 50% install and 50% equipment...contrary to what I read on this forum.
    Current head units:
    Kenwood, Pioneer (x2), Harmon Kardon.... all in near daily use.



    '65 VW Bus
    MA Hippo 122, (2) Aura Sound 8's, (2) SoundStream 6.5 coax, (2) Alpine Type-S 6x9's [rear fill], MBQ DSC1500.1D, RF 501X

    '12 Nissan Altima - Bone Stock - Sounds good, but adding subs soon.

    '02 BMW 330xi (AWD coupe), every option - SOLD

    Ironic story....
    Bought a Pioneer FH-X700BT for an inexpensive upgrade in my '05 F250. Pulled the 6-cd HU out and it said Pioneer Corporation on the sticker.

    Re: What Brand of Head Unit Do You Have ?

    I just shipped out my pioneer 800prs yesterday that I sold. I bought a pioneer deh-p960mp yesterday to get me buy until my new p99rs comes first of the week. I am impressed with this p960mp though, it's pretty nice sounding. It's the one that has one face slide down so it has like two faces. I will just sell it next week.
