Pioneer deck, piece crap....

Ok, so I have a fairly serious system in the pickup. Sony "professional line" 1200 mono block going to two kicker 10s in parallel. A kicker 75x4 going to my door speakers. pioneer doors. and a lightning audio 400 going to a infinity 12. Anyway, I figured it was a RCA cable since there is 3 coming out the back of the deck. I found one of the door speaker amp RCA's rubbed thru. I was like "bingo". I went and got some upper end RCAs and re ran them. Still have the same feed back. I figured it was a RCA but its actually the deck. Sucks, it was a 300 dollar deck. Im kinda sad. Anyway- what deck do you all prefer, I guess its time to replace that beezy. any suggestions?

i have a kenwood flip out and i cant complain. the only thing is that driving down gravel roads with the windows down sometimes it gets dust in the lens and doesnt like to read cds unless you blow into it. but there kinda pricy.

How did you ground the system? Did you use a common ground between the amp and deck... sometimes you can get some feedback with bad grounds..

agreed, you may need to use the same grounding point for both units, ive seen this before, go to walmart or somewhere and get ground loop isolators , they plug into the rca cables behind the deck or at the amp, and they solve issues, id be trying that before you bought a new deck

ya ill check it out. its just wierd because it sounded realllllllly really good for a long time. then i hit a small bump coming into my street and bam, feedback like crazy. and when the truck is started its even worse. ill try hooking up a new ground wire. see if that helps. That is a logical explanation because the sub amp works fine. but when i switched the door speaker amp to my 12s amp wires it still did the same thing, and it was on a different ground. Before, it was on a common ground with my sony that powers the 2 tens. Im kinda stumped.

are you running the RCAs on the same side of the truck as the power wire/s?

Springfield, thats awesome. Im from there. Anyway- Yes I am because there is no ignition on a diesel- thus no ignition interference. I researched it. It never made noise before. This is a obvious sound processor failure.

thanks man, i appreciate the offer. But, I need USB capabilites with an Aux input. also need front/rear/ and sub rca out puts. I picked up a JVC KD-HDR50. Its pretty slick. I got the "black tie" protection for 25 more bucks so Im good for 4 years.

Ill let you all know how it sounds tomorrow.
