Kenwood is supposed to have better sound. Pioneer is more available.

8k should also get you a very basic Alpine HU - best SQ, build quality and output power , but features are non existent

Having heard both, i can say that kenwood does sound better than pioneer. But again, the perception of quality differs from person to person. The pio is all about low's and high's, (dhinchak to be precise) whereas the kenwood sounded very neutral to me. There was equal emphasis on all frequencies.

I'd say, go for a kenwood 5039, or if you use the ipod, the 6539(if you can find it) and a good set of comps, maybe bull. You can go for a sub and amp later on.

That is not a fair and equal comparison. Did you hear it in the same setup? Quite likely not. Pios are not that as bad as you make it out to be. In a blind compare, I am sure you will not be able to pick it out.

Not identical, but similar. I am a looong time pio user, and have been through more than 5 pio HU's. I know what i'm talking about.

Anyways, i think y missed this point i made in my earlier post. I just mentioned what i felt. That's all

I've heard a lot of pio+ jbl installs, and all of them needed the HU to be toned down before they sounded tolerable, and even then, you can never get the highs to sound right. But a kenwood + jbl setup i heard sounded refreshingly neutral with a flat eq
