    Wanna get rid of my pioneer and get something else.

    Im looking to get rid of my pioneer and try out a different brand here soon. Mainly because of all the problems i hear people having with them with the pico fuses and faceplate lights and whatnot. Im running a 4000ub and love the usb input, built in high pass, the EQ, the 4v preouts, and the blue display. If i get rid of this ill be looking for something in the 150 range to replace it maybe higher depending on budget. What you guys think?



    Im better than you.

    The new kenwood 993 looks sick. your price range would probably sit around the 693 though.

    They're not out till March.

    Wait, so you want to get rid of a deck because you've heard others have had problems with Pioneer head units and yet you haven't had any problems with yours?? Do I have that right.??

    For $150 you're not going to do any better than what you have now.

    If you're looking for different sound then change out speakers, amps or subs. Or save your money for a while and spend MORE than $150.



    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: Wanna get rid of my pioneer and get something else.

    I think im having the same problem with the pico fuse in mine. Ive got a shitload of alternator whine and babies screaming and whatnot through my sub amp. I already have decent speakers, i didnt say i didnt like the way it sounded. I love the sq of it. i want the new 2009 model 5100ub I might sell mine and get that one. I just cant stray from my pioneers



    Im better than you.
