    x994 dead?

    My x994 will not read cd's, recognize an mp3 player, or recieve BT. It will only play the radio. I don't know why.

    Anyone have a clue? It just started doing this today, out of the blue.

    Did you check your fuses?

    I bought it used, off eBay. but it's worked flawlessly for six+ months.

    It could have possibly over heated. This is why I don't buy used off ebay.

    That is a far fetched statement. They are good but, not the best single din ever made. Literally they have done almost nothing to the x99x series for 3 years now.

    they havent made a new one from excelon since the x996, other than flip outs.. and no its not far fetched it was in an article somewhere, they put 3 hu's one form alpine the other from pioneer that were also top dollar, and the kenwood came out on top.. they were the top three single din head units of last year i believe

    You are sooooooooooo wrong. They did the test with all the head units flat eq wise. The DEH-80PRS is made to be ran active with eq setup. The X99x series is not better. Then you have the DEX-P99RS

    Re: x994 dead?

    already has it... im telling ya its amazing, changin the slopes, crossovers, Q factors, crazy **** you would never do.. hell i had to look a lot of **** up just to figure it out, its the easiest manueverable headunit.. you can blaze through your ipods music or settings, thats 1 of the FEW!! yes i said FEW!! reasons why it was better, its was a close pick between the alpine and the excelon.. not to mention its just a **** clean looking headunit..
