I was planning on replacing my factory deck yet, but it is in the back of mind. I came across this deck and wanted to get your opinions on this. The deck has an aluminum face. I think the colors on this deck would go awesome with my car. I plan on getting a real brushed aluminum dash kit so the face of this deck will match that. As you can see the button lettering and knob accent are red in color which matches the color of my car. :) Besides Clarion makes damn good decks! :D

Thanks in advance.

I used to love Clarion because they had the Alpha-Touch. Basically a multi-directional trackball that let you control everything with one finger. Then Microsoft bought them out and they interfaces went to hell.

I would suggest you save up a little, and get a bit nicer deck than that. It looks kinda cheap to me. That's just my 2 cents.

that's pretty much what I was going to say(sure it looks nice) but it's only $150 YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. but you should know that 50Wx4 is that good? (clueless) :confused:

Yea, save up and buy an Alpine or a Rockford Deck, alpine makes one hell of a deck, and they look super too (www.alpine1.com) check that out, they got some hella cool ones, I can get u some at a discounted price too, Clarions are crappy head units all together, they don't pump out enough power and they don't give you enough options to affect all aspects of the quality of your sound... Just My Recomendation: Alpine Head Unit and Rockford Fosgate Speakers... they make one hell of a good combination :) Well GL man

Warlord:

I dont think the deck looks that great. The LED part of it looks real cheap. I would invest another 50-100 bucks and get something that looks better.

The rims on the 2nd gen look a little like the 300m rims... just a lot larger. ;)

Actually all this talk about head units has got me thinking about what I want to put in mine. So, Here is my dilema, do I go with the cheap end but cool with the AIWA MP3 playing head unit... or go for somehting more ritzy like the alpine 7977 (silvery face to go with planned Real Brushed Aluminium dash kit) or something from Eclipse? What does everyone recomend... of course I'd be looking for a 4 channel amplifier in any situation. TIA!

Hey Deepred:

Did you put those Infinity Kappas in your car with the factory headunit? Do you have the infinity system? If so... how much better to the Kappa's sound compared to the stock speakers (assuming you keep your stock headunit)?

DjPiLL, the Kappas sound sooooo much better than the stock speakers. And no I didn't have the infinity system. So my headunit is the stock CD/Tuner. I can't wait until I have the money to get a new headunit though, I'm sure between that and a 4 channel amp the systems sound will improve greatly.

If they sound that much better.... I think I know what my next mod is. I am just seriously against changing my headunit because I love the in-dash changer, and the steering wheel controls.

Oh but then again, you don't have the Infinity system... so i dunno. My stock speakers sound much better than the base stock speakers. Did anyone else on this board who has the infinity systen, change out their speakers without changing the headunit? Big sound difference?

1) RF decks suck
2) Clarion doesn't

I had a Clarion deck once. Had it for nearly 7 years. It was a floor model too!!! I used to compete in IASCA and talked to a lot of people. Everyone that had Clarion said they would never use another brand. I'd like to get one with a remote and MP3 capability. Of course this is needed so my newborn daughter can properly enjoy her nursery rhymes ;) :D
