    Current Pioneer on the market comparable to the 860 (not 880 please).

    I think I'm ready to buy another head unit, but since the 860 is no longer available, I want to get something thats comparable. I had the 880, and I just don't want to go that route again. Also, I want to stay with the pioneer (or primier) brand. Let me know whats out there. Thx, Vic.

    P9 Combo-LOL

    The 9800BT/P980BT or 7800BT/P780PT but you are going to loose a couple features the 880 offered.

    Thats looks to be about it if you want something similiar to an 880/860 combination.

    If you want to use active crossovers then there isnt any but the p-9. other then that the 980 is the closest.

    Re: Current Pioneer on the market comparable to the 860 (not 880 please).

    Its the 9800BT/980BT or 7800MP/780MP (not BT... the 7800/780 is the 9800/980 without the BT)....

    It really comes down to what options you are going to use and not going to use. The only other difference besides the extra year warranty on the 980BT is the Auto-EQ and the L/R seperation I believe. Neither were of any use to me since I'm not using the EQ because I'm running an Audio Control DQXS/DDC so I went with the 9800BT. Definetly the route to go for amazing SQ with the 24 Bit Burr-Brown on the deck and the 24 Bit DSP + AD/DA on the DQXS with 142 different EQ filters (Graphic and Parametric).

    If you don't have access to a RTA or don't know how to set an EQ or aren't going to have external processing the Auto-EQ feature might be good though.



    Headunit: Pioneer DEX-P99RS
    Processors: AudioControl DQXS/DDC+Matrix
    Front Stage: CDT ES-06+, ES-04, DRT-26
    Component Amps: 2 Sundown SAX-100.4
    Subs: 2x Digital Designs 9510F
    Sub Amp: Sundown SAZ-3500D
    Batteries: 2 Kinetik HC-2400
    Wiring: Knukonceptz + Kicker

    Re: Current Pioneer on the market comparable to the 860 (not 880 please).

    To give you an idea of what i'm running in my truck, it's 2 sets of RE 6.5 comps pushed by an Orion 800/4, and an RL-p 18" with an Orion 2500d. HO alt, 2 redtops, an lots of 0awg, lol. I wont be using an RTA, external eq's, processors, etc. I was good using the 13band eq from the deck, and high/low pass settings as well. Thx for all the help & info guys. It really helps to hear from people that have used them. It's one thing to read about these things, but another to get first hand help as well.

    They also make a 7900/790bt. if you dont need bluetooth then the 7800/780 would be a good choice. They arent making that one anymore so you have to get one off ebay or the forums used.

    DEH-P940MP - can go active as well if you wanted to. I love that unit trying to get one myself for the girlfriends car.

    Cant agree with you there. You left out the ODR and M88s.
