I am planning to upgrade my son's 4runner audio eq. He has be been looking at the Pioneer DEH-P80MP for the head unit. How does that compare to the new Ecliplse units? Also I would like to match up an amp,sub and front speakers. Any advice? My budget is approx. $2,000.
I would go with the eclipse. It will be a little more money, but will be worth it in the long run.
Man I wish my pops would upgrade my stereo system with 2g's. For speakers, stick to only the fron set and get a pair of good component sets. SOmehting like MB Quart, Infinity, Boston and CDT would work great. You are going to want to power those speakers with amp. You can get a 2 channel or a 4 channel and use the back to channel bridged to a subwoofer.Secondly, what kind of music does he listen to? Metal, rap? Does he want loud booming bass or quick punchy bass?
Than you will want more booming bass. I would get the HU he wants, a set of Infinity Perfect 6.1's powered by a PPI A300 , and for the sub I would get an RE X.X.X. powered by an JL Audio 1000/1. Of course you'll need a dist block and probably a better alternator.
David, I am leaning toward an eclipse HU. The only issue is I already have XM in my other cars and I understand eclipse supports sirius. Based on all this, would I just be better off getting Alpine or possibly Pioneer which supports XM and not have to deal with an additional XM unit? Thanks again for all your help.
This is what I am planning to put in the 4Runner. What do you guys think? Do you have better alternatives? Thanks for all your help
