What I should have said but did not (probably because I was half asleep) is that car manufacturers have been trying to cut in on the after market action by offering systems actually made by some of the electronic manufacturers, but they charge a premium and really and truly you seldom get what you pay for. It's not that hard to add a little sizzle and some bass to make the system appear to sound decent but when you stop hearing and really start to listen the details or lack thereof become apparent, but the killer is when you hear a modestly priced after market system at a fraction of the dealer's cost. We are not talking competition systems , we drive family sedans, just something that you can really enjoy your music while on the road. For some of us though, once it's not factory installed, we want no part of it. I'm not sure that we are addressing the original question in this thread though. Anyway nice posts Uilleann, and Titaniumskull if you really like the Pioneer brand, I hear that the D-series are pretty good TS-D1720C or TS-D1602R if you prefer coaxials. I also did read somewhere that the system tuned by Ken Pohlmann is pretty good as well.
