    Deh-P860 vs. clarion DXZ945MP

    Hey guys..my H/U is shot...well the pre outs... anyways Im in a toss up between these two... Lets me say this, I like pioneer a lot, think they have pretty good SQ. I like there idea of using a mic for time alignment.. and the ability to make my own background movies, screen saver, crap like that. But i really like the 6.5v preouts too.. Im putting in some Rainbow Speakers and want to get the most out of them, yes i am amping them with 150rms. But i like the cool touchscreen clarion. Display plays a big role of what is going in my BMW. The Clarion also matches better with my black interior. I can get these for about the same price, Pioneer maybe a little higher. Im coming from a DEHp440 so im sure these both will be a Big upgrade. HElP ME PLEASE! also, can you change colors or whatever with the clarion? I like cool background ssh1t like touchscreen and dolphing humping lol! But SQ is very important also!

    The 860MP kills them both in features: more EQ bands, better crossover, etc etc.

    I think he was just saying that they don't ****. The 860MP still kicks their butt in features. You don't have to use the AutoEQ (I probably wouldn't), but the other features make it worth it.

    yes it is suppose to be...but in all reality alls the difference is a few more screen saver(which you can download or make) and a flip out faceplate, which isnt good cause the gears wear out if i remember... otherwise compare the two at the pioneer website and they are the same!

    Not really. Even though that's an older model, the features are all pretty much the same.

    I don't think I've ever used a Clarion deck that ****** or any other head unit for that matter. They all do what they're made to do, some just do it better.

    Actually the 960 had the dual face NOT the 940. The 940 has the same design as the 860.



    Source Unit: Pioneer P9 combo
    Tweeters: CDT DRT-25 Silk
    Mids: CDT ES-5 (5.25")
    Midbass: CDT M6 (6.5")
    Subs: Pioneer TS-W12PRS
    Mid & Tweet amp: Pioneer PRS-X340
    Midbass Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
    Sub Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
