I currently have a 1999 Honda Civic that has 6.5 front 6x9 rear speakers. This car once upon a time had a good stereo system in it that was stolen long before I bought the car for very cheap. I moved from Houston,Tx up to a small town 1 hour away from Harrisburg, Pa and with the low amount of theft in the area I started to upgrade my audio. I have a sony headunit I first installed but when it came time for me to install my old MTX 10'' sub (I have had this mtx ported box/sub for close to 4+ years) and boss amplifier (1000w)... it smoked after installing it, my extra 800w boss amp was then installed to find out my sony does not have rca's. No big deal, grabbed my 2 year old XO vision 349NT I got a few years back for 100, finished wiring it to my adapter harness.... it has no RCA's either. !!!!!!!!!!!!! DOH! So I then splice the rca's into the speaker wiring which I am sure is a horrible thing to do and I apologize in advance, and I have a crappy stereo system that I want to slowly change into a decent stereo.
I have around 100 to spend on a head unit,
my needs are
New or used, so far I am leaning towards the Pioneer-DEH-P7400HD (I found it for only 10$ over budget on ebay 109 shipped)
My future goal:
Use my 10'' mtx to its fullest (it has always produced nose itching bass for me)
upgrade to 6.5 component front/4 way 6x9 or what you guys recommend
amplified front/rear speakers with one amplifier if possible.
