  1. Just got an accord 2015 LX and well the sound system blows. Read about some people changing dsp flat to on through the developer menu but that was for different trims. Anyone know if this works for the LX? Is there anything else I can do to improve the quality? I would like to keep the factory head unit because of the ability to use the iMid (rear view camera screen, gas mpg and range screen). If there is a way to keep all the functions and the iMid screen, I would upgrade my head unit. I know that upgrading the head unit alone to something that has an eq, lpf, hpf, etc will do wonders. I just would like to keep all functionalities. I read that you could bury the factory head unit behind climate control and install a new head unit and keep all functionality. This seems extremely complicated and might not be worth it for me. I've also read about disabling the ANC module. Will this improve sound even if everything is stock? This seems to be a solution for people who have added a sub.
  2. I solved it by cutting the wire on the harness in half and hooking up the parking bypass to it
  3. I'm trying to hook up my parking bypass to my Pioneer head unit. I get that you need to connect the green, blue, and black wires, however I am confused as to how to connect the black and blue wires. All the wires except the green are connected to some white connector that connects to the vehicle. Do I need to strip the black and blue wires in the middle and connect the parking bypass to those. Or do I need to remove the black and blue wires from the connector and connect the ends to each other?

    6x9 speaker help

    I see, that makes sense. I was always under the impression that streaming audio over bluetooth was worse, because it gets compressed. I ended up purchasing the Pioneer MVH-200EX, and it should be coming in within a couple days. Thanks for your help! I'm excited to see the difference it'll make.

    I agree that normally I would give up on aux however I use an LGV30 which has a pretty good DAC. But in order to use the quad DAC, music needs to be played via aux

    The pioneer 200ex seems to be the better deal. The only thing different is that the 200ex has sub preamp outputs, and the 201ex doesn't. But the 201ex has switchable rear preamp outputs while the 200ex doesn't. What's the difference and is it worth the $30 difference?

    Ok cool, what do you mean by running the the aux connection to the side?

    6x9 speaker help

    When looking at the 2 types of installation kits they have, 1 is free and the other is $80. Under the vehicle features retained, aux and bluetooth are not checked. I'm a little confused by this. Is this just saying that if I had aux and bluetooth before from the stock head unit, it won't be available? Isn't this implied since I am replacing the head unit or is it saying I won't have aux or bluetooth capabilities at all? Also, is it possible to make this head unit work with the steering wheel controls?

    What's the difference between the 201ex and the 200ex? Also would I be better off with this, if I were potentially looking into upgrading in the future? The hu installation for the camry does not look too hard, however do I need to buy other things to ensure it fits into the car or is it just a direct fit? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06W2NBDP6/ref=psdcmw_2230642011_t2_B077MW47N8#nav-search-keywords

    Interesting...so how much would this cost me overall? Also, to me the stock camry speakers are absolute **** even compared to my honda accord 2004 stock speakers. Could it be that the head unit is so bad that the speakers are not being fully utilized?

    I read somewhere on here about someone recommending this head unit. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B076K2VQF8/ref=cm_cr_othr_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8 What are your guys' opinion on this?

    6x9 speaker help

    So I've decided between 2 speakers https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00C76YXMQ/ref=pd_aw_sbs_107_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=TS0K83Z3ZTT09TQ9112B&dpPl=1&dpID=81GHHKgDi2L&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001P86SE8?th=1&psc=1 I just need something that has a pretty good bass. I'm planning on replacing all my speakers in my 2009 Toyota Camry. I don't really have any intentions on buying a sub or amp since I was pretty satisfied with stock speakers in a 2004 Honda Accord. That said, I am looking for something that is easy to install, specifically for the Camry (front and rear). I am also planning on buying a new hu with crossovers. Do any of you have suggestions? I would like a hu that can do gps as well but I do have a budget for the hu of around $100.

    Toyota camry 2009 speaker upgrade

    Not really knowledgeable on car audio stuff, so most of that didn't make much sense. What I got from it is that I need a head unit with crossover, which seems to be something that you can plug in an input into and have it output into different frequencies. I'm assuming this is built into the head unit? There are many types of crossovers, does it matter the type in my scenario? Also, for the amp, will any reputable brand with 4 channels suffice? Is it basically a channel per speaker, and 2 channels for the sub? Also, why wouldn't you use rear speakers? Is it because it would interfere with the bass that the sub creates? If I don't use rear speakers, does that mean I will only hear bass in the back of the car and none of the vocals? What would you suggest for speakers in general, as well as subs? I used to have a Honda Accord 2004, and to be honest, the stock was fine for me. If it was a little better (deeper bass), cleaner mids and highs, I would be satisfied. I did have a Sony head unit and messed with the EQ a bit. Taking this into account, would I be better off just replacing my speakers, new head unit, and getting an amp, but no sub? Or should I just replace my speakers, get a new head unit, amp, and small sub? Also, what is hp crossover? Is this high pass? If so, would it just be built into the head unit?

    Toyota camry 2009 speaker upgrade

    I have a 2009 toyota camry, and to put it bluntly, the stock speakers ****. I have the stock head unit and I'm looking to upgrade all my speakers, dash board speaker, front speakers and rear. My budget is around $200-250. I've researched and quite frankly I'm overwhelmed by the number of options. So, I would like your guys's opinion on what would be the best bang for my buck in my price range. The main thing that I'm looking for is a nice, deep bass. Obviously I would like the mids and highs to be clear as well. A couple questions I have. Do I need to upgrade my head unit to provide more power to the speakers? Or can I use an amp to provide that power? Also, would it be a good idea to go different brands for the rear and front or would you typically keep all the speakers the same? The brands I was looking at are Rockford, JBL, Polk, and Pioneer. Any help is appreciated
