    Soundstream HU's?

    Hi, i'm doing an install on a buddy's car and he wants a Soundstream Head unit.
    Has anybody had experience with is head unit?

    It looks nice. Setup: Soundstream BX-20Z bass proccessor, 2 t6 12's with stinger electronics and Soundstream's Powerplant thing. Will this HU be a nice addition to the soundstream setup?

    Soundstream - 40W x 4 MOSFET In-Dash DVD Deck with Detachable Faceplate and 3.6" LCD Monitor - VIR3600

    Their in dash multimedia players are absolute garbage. Avoid at all costs. Pioneer has one similar style that actually works well, and I've had good luck with the Jensen in-dash multimedia players. Pay the extra 150$ to get one that works, or if you insist on buying the power accoustic/soundstream buy it from a store that takes returns.

    They still got good subs and processors tho. The bass processor is very nice with the tarantula amp and t6's

    Soundstream head units are Power Accoustic with a spider on them. A few other SS products are just power accoustic with a spider on it.

    Have they made HU's as long as they made amps and subs?

    This is the first SS HU I can ever recall seeing.

    Their higher end subs and amps are decent.
