Our stock HU dont process the mp3s properly. some of the bass frequencies in the song are not being played although while in Ultimate bass tester track those frequencies plays well. I dont understand why but it must be because of those SRTV and Loudness etc settings that those aftermarket HU's have.
I felt it do make some difference.
Anyways i cant afford new HU for now. have to live with this.
Dude Pioneer HU's are the best in terms of quality & EQ controls you get.. you can get the sound, the way you like from good Pioneer HU's..
Our stock HU is no where closer to Pioneer.. But new age pioneer quality has reduced, now its been imported from China.. am hearing JVC is good these days from ICE Gods... Alpine is BIG DADDY of all HU's but damn costly & no A.S.S available in India... Btw
, i10 is a hatchback, and any hatchback would sound better over sedans in terms of punch/bass & speakers too, bcz you get shoulder level sound.. you play audio CD's in stock HU for good quality..
For the test purpose, I played mp3 & wav format of RockStar in our stock HU, and difference was easy to notice.. there were many drum beats which you wont hear in mp3 formats.. you can download wav files in your phone & play them using blue-tooth, this also gives you better sound, better then mp3 formats..
This is the reason am gonna buy HU but at a lil later stage.. interface is also available now to use our steering controls.. I have 2 HU's in mind at the moment.. JVC KW-AVX846 & ALPINE IVA-W520E...
the best part in JVC, HU is capable to play wav formats from USB, bigger LED screen.. which is the best thing to have in car.. audio CD quality from a USB, amazing..
And the best part of ALPINE is EQ controls, 3 times more controls then JVC.. but the cost of JVC is 20/21k & ALPINE is 40/42k... if I can get it from USA, i would be saving 12k on Alpine... but no A.S.S available..
Lets see what am gonna do, too confuse at the moment..
What are your plans for yr 50w speaker 'plank'?
