I got this double din pioneer a little while back. It's pretty good it's got Bluetooth, AUX, and USB. Changes color and **** too. Sounds great with my stock setup. It was like $150 or $160. Fits great too!

Unless you can find a nice one used I'd keep saving for at least a $300 pioneer 1500. You get what you pay for.

Look around on onlinecarstereo.com I bought a jvc from them a while back in a different car and it was a sweet double din deck and was only like 180 if I remember correctly all functions ( Bluetooth, aux, usb, remote, ect)

I really like that one and almost went with that when I upgraded to a bluetooth stereo a few months back but decided to go single din instead because I really like having the pocket. Went the with the deh-4500bt instead.

Nice setup.

I actually have to chase down a wire issue or just rewire my car's speakers with good thick RCA cable. Got a sputtering sound from the back speakers when the radio is on. Speakers that came with this car are Kickers, not sure what brand but I might just swap the speakers from my CSVT which is down for maintenance for awhile. Those are some realy nice Pioneer 6x8s.

I would check the solder connections on the speakers. I put some 6x8 pioneers in my car and the first time around I did a crappy quick job. They would all cut out after a while. Pulled them all out, resolder them and put some hot glue on the solder connections to make sure they stayed. No issues since.

Already checked the wires where I can see them, I'm pretty sure its just a wiring insulation issue. I'll figure it out, I usually don't even try to use the radio anyway, I like the tone of my exhaust better.

The app radio is hands down the most aesthetically beautiful radio on the market. But I hate it. It is such a tremendous pain in the A to use. If you want anything other than AM FM radio to work you have to plug your phone in. Once it's plugged in nothing on your phone works except for app radio approved apps.

It's a nice idea but the functionality of the radio just isn't to a point that I would put it in my car yet.

We sold A LOT of those when we had them in stock. It's a solid radio.

The pioneers are the shaznats... I actually prefer single din in a mustang tho. I like the pocket for my wallet and phone and I honestly feel my shifter setup would get in the way...

Yeah that's true.. I've heard the new one has gotten a big upgrade from the old one! And the updates of firmware is a nice thing also!

They have gotten better but it's still a pain in the A to use. I'd go with one of the AVIC systems.

Holy crap stuff like this makes me so glad I stuck with the older models. Even the modulars took some time to learn... I still am way better at the old 5.0s... Can't even wrap my mind around $300 for a goddamn radio plate adapter, on the SN95 its $20 and install whatever radio you want lol.

The thing is with a lot of the new cars even non fords is that the are all going to this style where all the controls are built in to the dash panel and you need to replace that whole thing to get a radio in it. Just be happy it's not a Chevy that needs a $120 harness. I killed a sale today when I told my customer who wanted to put a $60 radio in a 2000 cavalier that they needed a $120 harness.
