I'd like some general feed back from some audiophiles out there. So I was looking to get some quality sound in my old Camry and wanted a nice screen to play some Pandora radio on the way home (40 min drive is looong).
I started looking around at Best Buy and online (the prices where much, much better online)
Anyways I finally decided on this combo to get some solid sound and a relatively large screen...
Pioneer Head Unit AVIC-X930BT; Alpine Speakers (SPS-610 and 517); Alpine amp PDX-5
I also picked up a mid price amplified antenna in case I want to listen to some FM radio and picked up the Pioneer HD tuner (for fun and to check it out).
My only real concern with the system is the 2 volt preamp output from the Head unit. I am curious if anyone thinks that the Alpine amp (PDX-5) will do a good enough job compensating for any extra noise from a lower voltage? Or will this be inaudible as some have suggested on other posts? If any of you have had experience with the other aspects of the Pioneer AVIC-X930BT, I would also be really interested in what you had to say, such as the claim that Pioneers have better FM reception...
My other question is I am looking for a low-mid price subwoofer to complete this system. Any advice? The amp can handle up to 400Watts for the sub.
Lastly, I got the generally oppinion that Alpine was "the name" for speakers from the sales guy at Best Buy. What are your thoughts on Alpine?
Sorry for the multiple questions, hope to hear from you guys.
