how is the standard raido better? ive had both and the standard radio is terrible. the pioneer isnt great but ill take it over the standard radio anyday. little sound from rear doors with both radiosI have to agree, I just picked up a 13 cruze with the Pioneer stereo and it sucks. I could do something better from the JC Whitney catalog! Standard set up is better. No amount of fiddling with settings works, Hardly any volume even when turned all the way up and the only sound from the back is muddled base even with base turned down to -7!!!!
It would appear that those who don't like the "boomy" sound that the rear 6x9 subwoofers produce would rather have the base system. It seems that it's not very easy to adjust that bass volume.how is the standard raido better? ive had both and the standard radio is terrible. the pioneer isnt great but ill take it over the standard radio anyday. little sound from rear doors with both radios
Number of voice coils have zero effect on sound quality. They are usually used to offer additional impedance options for amplification purposes.I like base, but not low quality muddy base with a lousy front sound staging. This system sounds very monoish to me if that makes sense. I also just tried a good CD for the first time and the system was much better. I would say the sound quality from XM is the worst with FM sound in the middle. I have tone adjusted for all the modes to. My other cars have Hardon Karmon with suround sound and those systems rock.
I wonder if getting some better tweeters and better 6x9's with dual voice coils would help.
GM tries to give us quality . it is the quality of the made in china products introduced into our assembly plants . pioneer once was a quality company . now not so much .Its basically a free option with the allstar package. I guess I was expecting to much from it. GM could have at lease put a little more effort into it.
First off ... NOTHING is free! It's just offered at a discounted price when you put multiple options into one package somehow.Its basically a free option with the allstar package. I guess I was expecting to much from it. GM could have at lease put a little more effort into it.
I don't know why they didn't just stick with Bose in ALL their vehicles? I had an 03 Yukon with the Bose system, and it kicked some pretty good @$$! Now, the 2012 Avalanche that replaced the 2003 Yukon actually HAS a Bose system w/centerpoint surround sound, but to my ears, the 03 system still sounded better.It boggles the mind to think after SEVERAL years of complaining that the PIONEER SETUP SUCKS! that GM still can't figure this stuff out. My god, doesn't anyone up there actually SIT in one of these cars?
