      A HU is a MUST. No denying that! But if you are doing things in a phased manner, get the HU at the very end. That is when you realize what a difference a good SQ HU alone makes

      Ssshhh! Stop calling me uncle in public

      The point I was trying to make was even a top of the line Double DIN will never match even a decent 1 DIN HU in terms of outright SQ.

      Can you please explain ? Is it that any specific Double din model is the culprit or in general ? and why the sindle din's are better ? ( I mean even if it is a fact , why would manufactured do that ).

      Well, for reasons unknown most of the manufacturers put in better quality components into the single DINs. Maybe, the same is cut short on the double DINs because of the other expensive features like BT, Touchscreen, Reverse cam capability, amongst other app compatibilities that they put in to make them look bling. Putting in all this along with high grade components would make it quite unaffordable!

      Today, we just did an install in the Terrano with a Pioneer 5690 Double DIN. Sadly, the only thing I did not like in the setup was the HU. We did try to convince the customer to get a 80PRS, but he insisted he wanted Navigation and Reverse Camera! I am still yet to come across a Double DIN that's impressed me for it's SQ.

      And somehow I'd have to agree with Mi10 that the best things happen when it's single

      Out of the box, they sounded very nice! But I know they'd sound even better with a good HU. Anyways, would like you to audition the car so you get an idea of what you can expect

      I am talking about just a double DIN HU as a standalone source! Adding a DSP to the above combo will end up costing close to 60-70k and then come the accessories for the DSP. And even this combo won't beat the likes of P99RS, HX-D2, Alpine 9887, McIntosh MX4000, Nakamichi CD700 and the likes for outright SQ! Although I agree it will give you a ton of tuning options compared to HX-D2/MX4000/CD700 etc.
