Default ICE suggestions for my OHC

My OHC has the stock cassette player which comes with the car. It seems to be aux CD compatible. I had initially thought that it would be a so so unit but I'm quite impressed with it . Made me take out my old tapes to listen to.

Now i have taken out the Pioneer head unit from my Zen. I had thought of doing a whole new install initially but now I'm on budget constaints since my car buying price went up. Needed answers to a few questions:

1) Should I keep the existing Honda head unit and add a mp3 CD changer? Advantage i can have both cassette and CD

2) Should I put in my Pioneer 4650 head unit? Disadvantge wont be able to play cassettes

3) Dont want to spend on amps and woofers so was thinking of adding a Sony bass tube which doesnt need a seperate amp I guess. I dont really blast music , I just need good punch thats all


Navin, Sam and other audio gurus please help

i got the perfect answer for you dippy. look i had the same problem with mine esteem.

it had a cassette player & i have a houseful of cassettes that i want to listen to.

here's what i did. i got a Sony DVD player for 12k & hooked the cassette player into its aux-in. this way both the cassette player & the DVD player are operational. OHC also has a facility for double din, so that should be ok. If any of your 2 sets have an aux in, then you are on your way. cheers mate.

p.s. i am not an audio guru

Helloooo dippy,

The problem with your OHC stock player is that you may not get a CD changer for it. If you attach a FM CD changer, you may ruin the sound entirely.
Do you have an iPod? That will change the equaltion a bit, since you say it is aux compatible (does the source SAY aux during the switching, because i doubt it has aux in)

I think you should install the pio4650. This Sony bass tube.. how much does it cost amigo?

Sam

the Honda head unit is out of contention now..the 4650 it is

And just came to know Sony doesnt make the bass tube anymore. Thinking of a JBL bass tube now . Guess I'll need an amp with it. Right?

Correct. The JBL bass tube will need a small amplifier to drive it. There is a newer smaller (10") model due to arrive this month end.
Maybe you should consider upgrading the stock speakers, atleast the front speakers first.

I had a similar issue, so decided to stick with my SONY XRCA 620X cassette coupled with CDX 757 10 MP3 changer. I must say JBL bass tube gives a real pleasure!!

OHC has a 2din slot? I dont think so.

Take all your cassettes to the nearest 'cassette to vcd' guy and get it all converted into cds. And forget the tape generation completely. Get yourself a Pio 4650 (6850 will give you some motorised bling bling if you can afford).
