@ gill

the cables were arranged by my friend but they were nice and quite flexible, better than power cables for sure.

Speaker cables is now Axis , again decent decent wires.

Why o why a double din. If you are looking for good quality sound, avoid the double din.

Go for the Clarion DXZ 785USB.
Its a great VFM HU.
Has TA and all and should be yours for the taking for not more than 11-12k ( almost as much as the double dins cost)

Secondly, you can take a 4 channel amp ( a decent one) and power the fronts + sub with it ( if funds are less)

Or else go for a 4 channel ( 50w * 4, give bridged power to the front compos) and take a decent 2 channel amp ( 200-300w @ 2/4 ohms) and bridge the channels to power a sub.

Remember if you want cleaner bass, take a sub which is either a 4 ohm SVC or a 2 OHM DVC and give it around 200-300w @ 4 ohms.

Or even the 200-300w @ 2 ohms plus a 4 ohm DVC would sound good.
Get good RCAs and speaker cables.
Power cabling can be anything.

You'll be good to go.
But its nice that you want to audition stuff.

Audition as many brands as possible and choose the one you like the most.

Cheers.


change is for no paticular reason ..

the only thing is didn't find any change when i bought P80RSII after panasonic , so i downgraded ..

HK was sold as someboday said that 8404 and HK are very similar sounding ...but no doubt HK had more power and bling factor ... but i trusted him and audtioned 8404 in my car and bought one immediately and saved some cash ....



But biggest surprise of 8404 is , it costs almost half the price of HK but plays equally good , i would say a little better cause after installing the sound became more lively especailly "CLAP" sound !!!

Well i can vouch for Kenny. I have Kenwood 8401 and it really rocks. I just love it. The sound is what you like no matter what equipments you choose. I have a JVC AVX-44 with PPI 356cs Compos on the kenny and trust me the Vocals and Midbass n Treble is much more realistic that Pioneer P80.

could be possible , even i didn't like P80RSII much

now i know Pioneer can't me happy ever , alos replaced head unit of Mum's car from pioneer 5090 to kenny's 5039 and trust me the sound is much much better .. JBL speakers have mellowed down like anything , mids improved and vocals became more realistic than trancy sounding ...

Am a fan of kenwood now and will never sell my kenwood stuff to upgrade

Completely Agree on this. Pioneer P80 is more trancy and too mechanical in Mids and Highs. Kenwood and JVC have a more Musical Mids and highs

This is the one of the most amusing things I've ever came across in ICE section.

To me, HK has a heads-on as far as SQ is concerned viz-a-viz Kenwood 8404.
