    Re: Best budget headunit under 150

    yeah they right about pioneer but staying closer to the $150 u can find the sony mex100 (i think it is) it actual does 40rms x 4 has small separate amp i believe.. my kenwood x301 can be found $119 or so has time alignment, hp and lp xovers, 13 band eq, 24 bit da converter and 4v preamps, bt, usb it's real good for the $.. get the sony if u can find it on sale, found one on ebay for $168, look around..



    KENWOOD X301 HU, PRECISION POWER Phantom 1000, FU 750 12, 2.1cfad ported, soundqubed 6.5" coax/doors, hp & lp xover on hu, AGM starting batt...

    Or Pioneer FH-S701BS if you want a double din. All active network capable, 4 volt pre outs, 24 bit dacs, 13 band EQs, time alignment etc...

    Personal experience with the jvc 340bts, not that far off from my 80 prs sound quality wise after tuning. The JVC actually has Q factor in the EQ which actually puts it above the pioneer alternative for tuning capability. The JVC has a more relaxed/mellow/warm kind of sound while the pioneer will have a much brighter sound from the start with no tuning so its your preference there, head units do have their own sound signatures.



    09 Sienna Subs : Four Team Ascendant 18s......Sub amp: Two Taramps 15k
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    Just ordered the Jvc x350s and I also ordered those silverflutes and tweeters. Any good budget 4 channel you have in mind ? Also how much power can those tweeters and silverflute 6.5 handle

    completely off topic, but youre running 30,000 watts to your subs?

    ikr? his sig says 2 taramps 15k's. When i was a sound guy for live bands, the biggest rig i ran was right at 30k watts, but that was on 220v and SEVERAL crown and QSC amps to EV hi-pacs(six sets of dual 15"s and 2" compression horns) and 6 dual 18 compression wedge sub boxes. Ran that rig for about 5 years. Crazy to think that a person has that much power running just the subs in a Sienna
