    Finally a double DIN HU that is active capable...

    well, I dont know if it it. Take a look and let me know because if it is, this HU might be the next hit on the active market. I am already considering purchasing it so someone please confirm what I suspect.

    CLARION NX702

    check this video out. Check out from 13:00 to see and hear what he is saying aboutthe crossover/EQ function

    Re: Finally a double DIN HU that is active capable...

    i would still perfer an Alpine double din with the H701 since you get 8 channels and 1/3 oct EQ for each...

    but that Clarion is still a VERY nice piece. good find.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Finally a double DIN HU that is active capable...

    This will be my next unit. Finally a double din with built in nav and active capability right out the box. And it's quite a bit cheaper than the comparable Kenwood and waaaaaaaay cheaper than the Alpine when you factor in all the extra add ons needed to make it comparable.



    Setup in progress:
    Subs: 2 15 inch Ascendant Audio Avalanches in a 7^3 box tuned to 30hz
    Amps: 2 DEI 1500d's for subs, DEI 500/2 for components
    HU: ?
    Components: ?

    Re: Finally a double DIN HU that is active capable...

    I'd rather have Alpine too. Clarion did such a poor job on the nx501, I cannot see myself getting the 702. I know they are two different models, but every Clarion I've owned had something wrong with it.

    Re: Finally a double DIN HU that is active capable...

    every Clarion piece i've owned (3) were nice units (>$300 bought new) and all had issues and were promptly returned. i'm sure they are capable of a reliable unit, i just don't feel like trying.

    What I mean is when compared to Pioneer, Alpine, and Kenwood the Clarion is just not for me. I also have a Clarion dxz585usb and I think the ipod control ***** compared to Alpine. I've heard good things about Clarion too, but I'm harder to impress than most. It is easy too see if you use different brands. I've done direct a swap with a Clarion 6 volt unit to a Pioneer 2 volt unit and the Pioneer sounded louder even with gain turned down. Maybe Clarion is improving but I must go with what I know works for me. Not being able to go back a step on the ipod is a deal breaker for me.

    Nx501 Con List
    -Kind of hard to see in Sunlight and I have 35% tint up front/ 5% in back
    -Remote doesn't see the unit worth a dayum.
    -When you use the volume knob, when increasing volume it will decrease the volume as you turn it up. This happens all the time. For example it you turn it all the way down, it sometimes will jump back to "volume 1"
    -Does not pick up ipod no matter what cable you use. It might pick it up 15% of the time. You have to keep reaching in the glove box to unplug it and plug it back in for it to pick up.
    -You cannot go back a step on the ipod. You can go back but you will be right back at the letter "A". It gets very annoying to go through all that just to get back where you left off.
    -Touchscreen could be a little more sensitive, but not too bad
    -Volume knob is right under navi button so when you turn up the volume, you will keep touching the navi button. Keep in mind navi button is not a real button. All you have to do is barely touch it, and navi screen pops up.
    -Bluetooth audio has low volume compared to Alpine and Pioneer.
    -3d mapping takes a long time to render buildings.
    -Hard bass can make dvd skip. Sometimes when it skips it starts dvd at beginning.
    -You cannot hear the navi voice without some kind of music playing in the background or it will just be muted and you have to watch the screen. Sometimes I like to hear the navi without music playing at the same time, but this is not possible with the 501.
    -No sub on/off option, but I knew this before I bought it.
