  • head unit fitment

    Well im new here and finally today i get to go pick my VXR up

    i have at home a pioneer flip up dvd player head unit. Would it get in the way of the on board computer and how easy are they to fit as you have to get abit for the dash i think??

      Best bet is to sack off and sell what you have and then buy a double din stereo which will fit directly where the standard one does and then you never have to worry about it covering anything.

        I'm with Jay on this one, thats exactly what I did, also no need to worry about where to put the hide-away box.

            I've got the Alpine IVA-W502R http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/alpi...2r-p-6753.html

            The JVC KW-NX7000 is also a good choice. http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/jvc-...00-p-7036.html

            But if you want the Rolls Royce go for the Pioneer AVIC-HD3BT http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/pion...bt-p-5856.html

            All have their good and bad points, it just depends what you're after.

                    As an All in one the Pioneer is equivalent to the JVC (if you add bluetooth seperately, which the Pioneer is also a seperate box but included in the price) and also the Kenwood DNX-8220BT. Of all the ones list as all in ones the Kenwood is the true all in one as nothing is seperate. What the Pioneer has that the other two do not is a Hard Disc jukebox, which is nice but it really could do with a price drop to compete with the other two as it does not offer signinifcantly more. The best value for me would be the Kenwood as its map upgardes are significantly cheaper than the rest and its bluetooth tends to be the most compatible of the lot.

                    If you want cheaper double dins then Kenwoods DNX-5220BT, Pioneers F900 and F700 will do the trick nicely.

                    Having said that if you do not mind adding boxes then the Alpine can do what the others can do, and when it comes to SQ add the imprint processor, or seperate DTS processor and it goes into a leaque of its own. Mind you without the EQ's it is better than the Rest in terms of SQ (IMHO of course, but you will find most reviews of it say the same thing).
