So I've been running a $100 pioneer media hu for over a year and it don't like the cold up here in mn. Well tax money came back and went and got me a pioneer avh-w4500nex. And damn does it sound so much better, everything is cleaner and even the subs sound better. I forgot what it was like to have something nice, been a while. Plus the wireless Android auto is killer.

everyone underestimates how important a head unit is for actual sound quality and spl. need to bookmark this to show other noobs that dont believe my claims on the head unit being absolutely the most important buy in the car audio system.
Oh I never underestimated the importance just couldn't afford it before. I've had good head units in the past in my 03 wrx and 06 mustang GT. But now onto speakers, time to do research and see what I like.

Is it THAT much of a difference if using stock speakes? Im using a 98$ hu and upgrading this week
There’s $100 hu’s that provide good signal. The pioneer mechless and the 6120 are $100 single dins and work awesome. Not prs80 in respect to tuning and eq but less than half the price

actually they have more tuning features than the 80 prs, just not as good of sound quality. The app has 31 band EQs for the new pioneers.

Have you found the max undistorted volume on that head unit? I am curious as I may be grabbing one soon.

Your post of this Pioneer has made me take a real close look at it. It actually does everything I expect a head unit to do. After reading the ENTIRE owners manual in pdf I also found out that the USB and SD are good with NTFS which means, storage limits are not an issue.

I know, I'm loving this unit. Still been playing with it.
