    dude idgaf what your opionion is, and sorry im not willing to pay 1200 for some ****** single din pioneer, i could run the top of the line kenwood excelon flip out with all the bells and whistles for that price.. you could have the excelon and the best equalizer ever for that. lol

    Please stop posting... you do not have the proper knowledge to say what you are saying. All of the slopes and crossover are highly important. Do you know what running active means because I think you don't. The best SQ setup's in the world are ran actively.

    I would beg to differ. The entire line X993 though X996 are made very much the same. The only differences are in the features. The X993 though X995 have had poor reliability. I see no reason to believe the X996 is any better. It's just, the X996 is still relatively new and so there aren't a lot of users who have had these for longer than a year. I personally had an X994, After 18 months of use the face plate stopped working. The X996 face plate looks exactly the same to me. This is a great deck for people who like swapping them every other year.

    Re: x994 dead?

    I own a 996 and I can assure you that it isn't the best. I DO prefer the sound of the 996 over my 880prs but the tuning capabilities just hold it back. If it had 3 way active capabilities it would be a contender with (and probably better than) the 80prs which also isn't the best single din out.

    Re: x994 dead?

    I like my 80prs and I didn't pay 1200 for it... lol

    I did however enjoy my old school excelon x911. The 80prs might not be the best out, but I think it's a bit better than the new excelons.

    Re: x994 dead?

    when i said "crazy **** you would never do" i wasnt refering to crossovers or slopes.. i was referring to 99% of the car audio people that just want a decent headunit that will do what they need it to do.. im no nuthugger, i try to look at all sides evenly, but the pioneer you refered to is MADE to be ran active with an amp.. in my city you find RARELY anyone who actually runs a compnent system with an amp, and never have i seen anybody with an active setup, sorry for the BEST HEAD UNIT EVER MADE comment, but it doesnt need an amp, it wasnt specifically made to run active. nor is it kenwoods top of the line deck. its got everything i need and for the PRICE it cant be beat BY FAR, when you can control everything you need straight from the headunit, its good enough for me.. and ZAKO sorry you beg to differ but unless youve owned one you dont know... ive owned the x994 and 5, and also their lower x59x and x49x, this is their largest leap in my opinion, although they did have a few bugs in the ones before like stated in the original posters comments and mine shortly after, i havent had any problems with mine.. any companies headunits arent going to get much better each year they will only add new bells and whistles just like a car manufacturer... rarely do they just come out with a whole new design.. SORRY FOR THE BIASED COMMENTS.. ITS ALL OPINIONS!!

    I also said the DEX-P99RS which is 1200 bucks... It is such a beautiful head unit.

    omfg it is ooooooookaaaaaayy.

    cuz this thread brought the lulzies!

    Your first suggestion actually saved the day. I posted too quickly. The fuse was fine.... but pulling it reset the unit. And THAT fixed it, lol. Back to normal. And the copy of Bach I DL'd didn't work, so I did a couple other tracks which are uploading to youtube via my s3 right now.. I'll buy some Bach from itunes, amazon, or w/e tomorrow morning when I get off work, and use it.

    You do realize other than adding more eq bands there is no audible difference between the x994,5,6.
