    Icon32 JVC......exad?

    Ok, I do not know if anyone has experience with this or not.

    I might have screwed up the internals of my current Pioneer DEH-6800MP and to get it fixed costs 20$ less than what I payed for it.

    So if this is the case (I'll be testing the theory in roughly and hour) I need to shop for a new HU.

    SO I'm looking into something that has a nice screen. I cam across a really nice JVC (don't shuddder yet) unit, referred to as the KD-AVX1 exad. Now, I have gone to Circuit city and tested this unit out personally. I'm not a fan of the motorized screens. The display is Immensely nice, and the sound was fairly awesome for it being JVC. I need to test it's floor noise, but other than that, it had great options and once againt he display was impeccable (sp?).

    So, I can get ahold of one of these units for roughly 350$, vs. my other option, the Premier 980BT, which is roughly 400$

    What would you guys do?

    The exad would be nice if you have an external equalier. IIRC, it's pretty much a bass-treble EQ. Not too much tweakage available.

    Also keep in mind that the sub channel is only a 2 volt preout if that matters to you...

    I've had a few different EXAD units in the last few years and didn't have any problems with them...

    yeah. i did wish the sub out was 5 volts like the other 2 preouts.

    Re: JVC......exad?

    kcdc - I actually meant to type the AVX2...whoops. I even searched it wrong.

    IonSQL - as far as 2.0 volt pre-outs, I only had 2.2's on my Pioneer. Is it higher the number, the less you have to turn the gain up on the external (multi-channel for me) amplifier, no?

    as far as external EQ's, I try to run as close to flatline as possible anyways.

    Kcdc, does the back have 3 pre-outs? Rear channel, front channel, and Sub rear? Or atleast the equivalent of? I'm also worried about the motor. I see a few on E-bay with motor issues....

    Bingo... if you had 2.2v on the Pioneer it shouldn't be a big deal to switch as far as that goes...

    it does have rear, front and sub preouts. my faceplate has worked fine for the 8 months that i've had it.

    Re: JVC......exad?

    Well, my Head unit was the cause. I won't be getting a new head unit though, because I have existing warranty on the Pioneer.

    Now I can spend the money on the Sub amp
