I did some more research. I'm going with the Pioneer FH-X830BHS. I got the adapter to connect the steering wheel controls even though its mainly vol that I want to keep there. Your right about alot of Bass from the stock unit. I like bass but there is a point when its too much
hey you're welcome. Ok I looked at the Pioneer you mentioned. Oh that's much nicer! I see all the sound adjustments it has, time alignment, crossover, wow.. that's awesome! Plus the specs for the CD Player are much, much better and you can burn a cd with WAV files, usually it's just the compressed audio files. Or it's just USB that can play WAV files. Which this unit will do that on both! Cool.. I'm an audio purist, I love MP3's but I also love uncompressed audio, also known as lossless.
it also has HD Radio, that's nice too, just anything extra is always nice! I'm thinking you found a winner here! Yes I agree that the stock Pioneer is BASS heavy, it's crazy! I love bass, but I have to turn it down on the factory unit. Yup we agree there.
Again I'll say, I think you found an awesome replacement stereo/headunit! I bet it's going to sound, should I say it again? AWESOME!
good find and it's much cheaper than the other JVC you were looking at. Also when you install it I'm thinking that the instructions will tell you how to install it so it sits back far enough that the radio door can still close.
You're tempting me to replace my factory headunit! thanks!!
EDIT: Also.. with all those audio adjustments you should be able to tweak it to make the factory speakers sound good. Remember, the Scion Pioneer radios had pre-equalization built in based on the sound profiles, you could change it from tC to xa, and xB. That would equalize the sound differently for the speakers. Now with all these adjustments you can help the factory speakers sound good!
