I have seen the pioneer touch screen head units on the website. Planning to ask relatives to get it. Before ordering it, wanted to confirm if it will fit comfortably into the verna double din slot. Can anyone please confirm if the sizes match?

Of course, it will, Prasanna.

Just wanted to confirm, cause some HU come in weird sizes right, like that 1.5 Din or something in some brand.

Gurus,

Will the placement of sub woofer facing towards the amp in the boot enhance the cooling? I have a feeling that due to the air displacement while the sub works? Please clarify.

Usually installers says never install Sub and Amp face to face to avoid loose connections due to vibrations. In effect, itís really pushing the air towards and enhancing the cooling, thatís my logic. Is it correct?

Sensei ,

I recently got myself a brand new Kenwood x8016BT ( same as x994) for a pretty good price. But the trouble is after having spent 5-7 yrs with Pioneer HU's all around me, I kinda miss the brightness in sound and overall surround effect. I am just running my Kenwood HU on rear Pioneer Coax (in a box). Ironically, the same coax sound much better with the latest Pioneer HU on my cousin's i10 and even better when used with an old Cassette player Pioneer HU in my Wagon R. It seems as if kenny's lack the punch or maybe its a case of bad sound tuning/ settings on my HU. I have been told if I want to make my sound brighter from here on, I need to choose my front comps accordingly (suggestions for comps with sharper highs... i.e. if this 'gyaan' is correct?)

While I like the fact that it doesn't hurt my ear anymore and I can listen to stuff all day long in my car, but is there a way to 'basterd-ize' (for lack of a better word) my kenny into a Pioneer ? I want one setting where its as bright as it would be on a Pioneer HU.

I am planning a step by step upgrade for my 2006 Civic.

To begin with I want to change the speakers and tweeters that came with the car. I want to install components in the front but I am getting confusing verdicts from accessory shops.

Is it necessary to install an amplifier for the components to work? And secondly, would I need a sub-woofer for the bass? One accessory shop tells me that the component speakers would not give out any bass, hence I would need a sub.

I don't quite believe this but I would love to hear from you. I also want to change the rear speaker but don't know which ones to go for, components/coaxial's/6x9. Looking for advice here as well.

I don't want to change the head unit of the car but stingy Honda has skipped the AUX-IN for it. I know for fact that the later models came with the same HU but with AUX-IN cable provided. I spoke to one shop in Milan subway and he is quoting INR 5K for it, saying its a genuine Honda accessory.

Honda service centers are unable to help me with this. Looking forward to your replies.

Many thanks

Can someone please help me with this one? Pretty please...

Thanks in advance.

If you are looking for good Bass and you expect there will be big difference by installing components you will be disappointed.

My ANHC is having decent front speakers and i am planning to upgrade by just installing amps and Subs.

Default DEH 7250 ipod touch 3rd gen support

Hello friends,

I'm planning to get a Pioneer DEH 7250 unit from Singapore (without warranty). I have a question though. Surprisingly, all manuals of 7250 mention no support for ipod touch 3rd Gen. It came out in Sep 2009 but apparently no support yet from Pioneer.

Does anyone here has used 7250 with Ipod touch 3G?

I am assuming I can still connect the ipod using a normal USB connection and can play songs through the 7250/speaker system though I will not be able to control the ipod touch 3rd gen using the HU. Is this correct?

Thanks
Brij

I have the 3rd gen ipod touch and I use it with my pioneer 5150 (2009 model). It wil give you error 19 everytime it starts up, then you have to change the source to something else then come back to usb and it will read. You can use all functionalities after it reads.
Now and then it will give you error 19 and not go away no matter how many times you change the source. You will have to unplug the usb and perform some rituals, basically give the usb a break, then start it up again, it should work.
You can always try a demo once before going in for it.

Does anyone have an opinion on JL XR 650 CSi component speakers? I had never even heard of JL Audio before this week. Do they make good speakers?

Yeah, I got to know that today. Demo'd a friends Corolla was not impressed at all. My stock front speakers sound much better, thank you Honda.

So now my plan's have changed. I will not install comp's up front, instead will opt for 6x9 or co-axials in the tray and will for a simple 4 channel amp and a decent sounding woofer.

My local installer has recommended focal 6x9's and kicker woofer and Auidptor amp, no model numbers unfortunately. I will open up a new thread asking specific questions.

Thanks shamanth!

Pras, thanks for the response. I looked at this too late. My brother has already bought this and is on his way to Delhi. Couldn't check it on ipod 3G, damn. Looks like I will have to do all sorts of rituals to get it to work!

Well ritual is only when you turn the ipod off and on. If you leave it on then no issues on start up. If your leaving the car for a short time dont turn off the ipod, put it on stand by.
You will get used to it. Pioneers are very user friendly.
