    such a great looking install - I would be all for the ar3 if only it had satellite radio capability. I'm all into the jailbroken iphones and what not, so I'm sure I could do serious damage with the AR3 haha.

    Thanks, It would be so beautifully clean if I didnt have to take one RCA and split it to two, then the other and do the same. Thats why there is extra RCA's in the middle. Made my Front L/R in to Front & Rear L/R. Due to Pioneer AR3 only having 2 sets of preouts. Otherwise, ya I am very happy, sound is awesome, looks good.

    I'm very happy with my JVC KW R900BT double din unit. Really hate the cheap aftermarket dash kit. Got a scratch I need to figure out how to fix.

    For the 2012+ it is a different box.
    If I turn the sensitivity all the way up its honestly too much for my personal taste. Its just hitting so much it overpowers everything. So I like the knob that you use with JL amps to set it remotely.

    I really like it. I need to have some other audiophile people listen, the whole system can go crazy loud and still be perfectly crisp with no distortion, way beyond my normal listening preference. Also the stealth box went in so easy, and no cutting of anything needed. It's a perfect fit.

    Finally got mine fully installed and working perfectly. Alpine amp and arc audio 8" subs. Perfect setup for just a mild bass. None of that window rattling stuff. I can tell I'm getting older.

    I was just looking at that same head unit. How is it? Are you using it with an iPhone or a Android?

    I use it with an iPhone 5. I am happy with it. I had the Z1 (upgraded to Z2 and Z3), then later the Z140BH. I am most happy with this.

    My friend has the same headunit and an HTC One android phone. It is way more buggy and definitely not as fluid. There are bugs with anything and there are a few with the iPhone5 and AR3, but it is totally usable and I love using Waze rather than the crappy mapping software that comes on all other headunits. Waze works flawlessly. Pandora is good too, so Pandora+waze and I am good to go. I dont use much more yet... Perhaps when I can jailbreak and use ARExtensions I'll use more.

    I am happy for $399.
