    Double Din Dilemma!

    Ok, so I think for my next mod (read cash blowout) will be upgrading to a double din DVD screen/player.

    I already have 2 in mind already...but narrowing it down to the perfect one is harder than I have anticipated. The Alpine IVA-W205 coupled with the Blackbird PMD-B200 for the Dock'n'roll setup or the Pioneer AVIC-Z2. These are both great looking products that do pretty much the same things, so herein lies my problem. I know pretty much squat about stereos, power stuff, wires, etc., so asking me about bit rates and stuff will make my head explode (kidding).

    From what I hear Alpine is a great, trusted name...but I have never heard something bad about Pioneer.

    Pioneer
    http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...070352,00.html

    Which would you choose?

    ...if it matters, later on, I would most likely be going with a single 12" Crossfire sub and amp, and possibly a set of Focal door speakers...

    I won't buy another pioneer product...
    They had four tries to fix my "top of the line" tape player in the 90's, and failed.

    Granted, that was ten years ago...but that's where I stand.

    I've always wanted to do this. It REALLY dresses up the interior.

    All those threads you sent me were worthless...

    The review was on the D3... totally different unit than the z1.

    The overheating problem was because the fan was covered... not because it's a pos...

    I still say Avic z1 FTMFW baby
