y the changer when u have mp3 in the units. also check out the new 4750 and 5750 series in pioneer. if u want VCD then go for JVC with a necvox screen i guess should be cheaper too.

i want the changer because they have better shock protection than the head units...head ill use only for mp3s...

i dont want a vcd or dvd player or a screen...theyre distracting!!!

vcd players start from 7000 sony comes for 8000. screen prices are from 5000 now. depends on what size u go for. yes i guess u can connect the accessories along with it, check it up. im not into video in cars only audio for me. unless i had a ps2 hehehe

Its exactly the other way round! In-Dash CD receivers have much better shock absorbing qualities than CD-Changers.
My advice: Go for Pioneer 5650 (now 5750) for around 8k & 6990 rear speakers. I've it & I love it.

hey...i'd also pm-ed gto...and he asked me to put it up here...so here goes (i hope you see this gto)

gto,

i've heard that you're the resident sound expert (and tht you got a vtec!), so i thought i'd ask your opinion on a sound system i'm planning to get for my baleno

head unit - pioneer 4650/5650 or sony 5500/5705 (rs 6k to 8k)

front - any 4" door speakers (1k)

rear - pioneer ts-6990s (3.2k)

total cost - around 12k

i'm also planning a cd changer...just audio, not mp3. i want a changer as i plan to use the head only for mp3, because i hear the changers have better shock protection. also, i'm not really looking for a sub or an amp.

would appreciate it if you could give me advice on costs, as well as quality/alternatives. the instal will be done by the maruti dealer, as the warranty is void if anyone else touches the electricals.

also, could you fill me in on fake pioneer stuff, and how to spot n stay away from them.

thanks a lot


viper

(used to have a 1.5. driven the vtec. envy you)

Can you please post the component-wise break-up? also, where did you get this done?
