    i really like pioneer products but i would recommend putting in a double din Head unit in as they look quite a bit better in our trucks than the single din ones

    I also would prefer having a DD unit, however sometimes the situation calls for a single din unit. The above unit is nice. It is the newer Premier version of the unit I have. It works fine. The sound quality is good and the add on items are cool. I have HD radio (came as a packaged deal) and it is pretty cool. I can tell a difference in the SQ.

    My biggest complaint, and I hope they have fixed it, is how easy it is to reset all of your radio stations and how big of a PITA it is to redo them.

    Pioneers are great and that new one is sharp looking, but I prefer Alpine CD units. The cd player in an Alpine has a higher signal to noise ratio at about 105db compared to the Pioneers which are about 92 db. I'm going by memory so I maybe off a little on the exact numbers, but my point is that you get better CD sound quality from the Alpine. I believe Kenwoods are also now rated at 105db also, but I haven't owned a Kenwood in awhile so I have no personal experience with them.

    Reliability wise I would absolutely trust a Pioneer. I put one in my daughter's 1994 Corolla in 2005 ($99.00 special) and it has been flawless.

    Yeah I've had alpines and pioneers and love them both. I think I'll probably end up going with the 510ub but I do appreciate everybodies input.

    As for componet speakers what would yall suggest. $200 is the absolute cutoff. I'm not a audio-addict so I dont need something to blow me away, simply cleaner than stock. Thanks again for the input guys!

    In my opinion, for $200 I'd be looking at Infinity Reference or Kappa.
    Such as these: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_13969_Infinity+Kappa+60.9cs.html

    Or the 6030's that are a bit less expensive. I live the way the Infinities sound for the money. However, what ever you do, go to shops and electronics stores and listen to the speakers before you buy them. Try and make them as equal as possible by turning off subwoofers and any sort of eq settings on the decks. If possible, bring your own CD and use the same HU models in each location (preferably the same HU model that you plan on buying). Decide what you want to buy that way. You can then go online and see if you can get a better price.

    I've had a set of infinities before and they put out absolutely 0 bass. It could be the way the place i bought them from tuned it though. Do yours sound good as far as bass goes?

    Awesome speakers, but if you run the Kappas, you really should get an amp to drive them. The reference series are a better choice with just a head unit, because they do not require as much power to drive them. Good advice about listening to them first. Everybody's ear is different.

    They really benifit from a sealed up door. They were a bit lacking in that deeper mid bass until they were better closed up. I do not have them now (they are in my Acura that I gave to my mother). I am currently running some Pioneer Premier 720PRS or something like that. When I get home, I'll post up pics. I really like them a lot, but they too would most likely benifit from a better sealed door. Just haven't gotten around to Raammatting my truck. No $$$ :rolleyes:
