    Re: Any Suggestions?

    what type of features are you looking for? i just bought a clarion DXZ745 from ikesound for $139. it arrived today and i'll hook it up tommorrw. has your general features. what i like about it is it has an internal amp shut off on it. i personally don't care for a lot of features like time alignment and huge EQ's. i also have an external crossover so i don't need that either. depends on what you want your headunit to do. actually i think i'll go install my deck now. nothing like throwing in a deck at 11 at night. i hope my neighbors won't think i'm trying to steal it

    Re: Any Suggestions?

    well i just installed my clarion DXZ745 and i already like it better then my pioneer premier 860. the quality seems to be much better imo. this is only with 5 minutes of testing though. i played 2 cd's that are sctratched that my pioneer would never play, but my clarion plays the cd's perfectly. granted it doesn't have all the features the 860 did, but i never used them anyways. back to the point, if you are looking for a solid deck, that's cheap, this clarion looks pretty nice. especially for only $139. i'm really happy with this purchase. hope this helps.

    Re: Any Suggestions?

    personally i was thinking about the pioneer DEH-P6700MP. do u think thats a nice choice.

    when upgrading a hu, theres better sq right? and what about bass? does it add more.

    also, is car stereo online a reliable place to get a hu? i never bought anything from them so i was just wondering

    Re: Any Suggestions?

    do you have subs? if you do, i would look for a hu with subwoofer-outputs

    the pioneer deh-p6700mp is a great choose, it has many features and a nice look
    yes, the sq will be better. as for add more bass, i don't know

    if you get the deh-p6700mp, don't use your line out converters anymore, use the sub-outputs cuz they will make your subs sound cleaner and louder.

    get the clarion DXZ745. i just went from a pioneer 860, which is much better then the 6700, and i love the clarion so much better. it has everything i need, 3 preamp outputs, aux inputs, a simple sub control where i can actually shutoff the crossover, and internal amp bypass, and it has excellent sq. better then my 860. and it only cost $139. i'm just so happy i bought this deck.
