    Kenwood excelon x789 ! Although I do like pioneer, the 5 volt preout vs 2.2 is no match when you compare these 2 models.

    Re: Kenwood vs. Pioneer

    You're actually comparing Kenwoods better line against Pioneer's (NON-Premier) lower line of decks. I will agree the Kenwood is the better choice here but I have to say one thing about this.

    If I were you I would save 80 more dollars and get the 890 when it comes in. Which should be soon.



    Source Unit: Pioneer P9 combo
    Tweeters: CDT DRT-25 Silk
    Mids: CDT ES-5 (5.25")
    Midbass: CDT M6 (6.5")
    Subs: Pioneer TS-W12PRS
    Mid & Tweet amp: Pioneer PRS-X340
    Midbass Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
    Sub Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720

    Re: Kenwood vs. Pioneer

    i own both


    premier 680 >>>> excelon 789

    the absolute only thing i favor on the kenwood is the adjustable face angles.

    also, the premier line has 4v outputs, you linked to the regular pioneer.

    Re: Kenwood vs. Pioneer

    Yo, I just bought the x798. CAN NOT WAIT. I was in the same debate. The pioneer one your looking at is more compareable to the kenwood mp628 which is also closer in price. The excelon model is great. I also have two excelon amps which I can now control my gain digitally from the deck.



    HU - Kenwood excelon KDC-X789 center unit
    Subs - (4) Alpine SWR-1242D
    Boxes - (2) Slot Vented Enclosure tuned 41hz 1.7cuft/sub
    Amps - (2) Kenwood KAC-X811D amps @ 1ohm

    ~OPTIMA~
